A creamy, no churn vegan caramel ice cream with a thick caramel swirl. Refined sugar-free.
Sweeteners: if substituting the agave with honey / honee, note that this will work in terms of creating a delicious ice cream, but the stronger natural flavor of this sweetener will detract from the "caramel" flavor of the ice cream.
Soaking dates for caramel swirl: to soak them quickly, boil some water. Pour over dates in a bowl to cover and allow them to soak for about 15 minutes. Then strain the liquid. This will help them to be soft enough to blend into a smooth caramel-like texture. Alternatively, to keep the recipe raw, cover the dates in very warm water and allow them to soak for at least an hour.
