Chocolate Soft Serve Ice Cream

This is easy to whip up in a Vitamix or other high powered blender.  If you don’t have one, you can still make it but you probably won’t be able to use the dates in place of sugar.

  • 10 dates (or 1/4 cup sweetener/sugar/honey/maple syrup)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 12 ice cubes
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Place dates in Vitamix and run until well chopped.  Add remaining ingredients (start with 1/2 cup non-dairy milk and add more as needed) and blend, using the tamper.  Try not to blend it too long (but long enough so that it’s smooth) so it stays nice and cold!!  Serve immediately.  Healthy and YUM.

(If you don’t have a Vitamix, you are probably best off with a food processor over a standard blender.  You could still try it with the dates, otherwise use the sugar and process all ingredients together until smooth.)
