2/3c finely Chopped Dates
3c vanilla ice cream
1c 2% milk best, (1% or skim ok too)
-Add dates & water in microwave safe bowl covered w/plastic wrap. punch small whole in wrap top to let a bit of steam excape.
-Microwave on high 30-40 sec or until dares are really soft, cool completely
-Place date mix in blender, cover, pulse until pureed.
-Add frozen ice cream and cold milk.
-Process until just blended. Serve immediately with tiny pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg on top.
-For real decadence, add a dolop of unsweetened Real Heavy Whipped Cream (not canned) sprinkled with cinnamon, nutmeg, plain or cherry on top.
-Real Heavy Whipped Cream - put bowl and beaters in freezer for 15-20 min while mixing the puree. This helps keep whipping cream cold. Add container of Real Heavey Whipping Cream to cold bowl. Whip with electric beaters till stiff peaks, about 5 min. This will double in size so be sure you have a big bowl. Do not over whip as you will have homemade BUTTER, which is good, but not for this recipe. Makes 2-4 servings depending on glass size. Sit back and enjoy :)
