A creamy, no churn vegan caramel ice cream with a thick caramel swirl. Refined sugar-free.


Ice Cream Base:

Caramel Swirl:


  1. Place all ice cream ingredients in a blender and blend into a smooth consistency. Transfer to a freezer-safe container and set aside.
  2. Place all swirl ingredients into the blender, and blend until smooth. Using a spoon plop this mixture over the ice cream base in the container. Then use something like a skewer to gently swirl the two mixtures together {if you're intimidated by the swirl, don't be -- you'll see -- it's easier than it looks!}.
  3. Cover the container and place in the freezer to set for at least 4-5 hours or overnight. And enjoy!


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.
