10 second Fig Ice-cream

I can’t remember when I first tasted a fresh fig, but I know that since that day there has been no going back. I grew up eating a lot of dried fruit: dates, bananas, and figs. Bananas soon got banished and picked out of every cereal bowl it showed up in.

Frozen bananas on the other hand was just genius lurking in the pews: gone are the days of blackened fruit spoiling your fruit bowl or attracting fruit flies or bread recipes. Now I can have ‘fresh’ bananas whenever I want them. Frozen bananas or any fruit make amazing fruit smoothies, but also desserts as this recipe demonstrates: you don’t have to use the dates, but because I love the caramel swirls like taste of figs in the dairy version of fig ice-cream, I needed something to substitute that. I love the rich pink colour the figs give to this ice-cream, half of eating is with the eyes as they say.

Quick, healthy, raw and ready in minutes!

    Ran across this post searching on how to make ice cream Can you make this with dates? I have used dates in place of fig before. Would be intresting to experiment with it and see how it tastes.
