I love the smooth taste of coffee ice cream, but don’t love the caffeine hit that causes me to crash later on. I also love my sweets, but I don’t love the affect they have on my body … cravings, joint pain, inflammation to name a few.

This delicious, dairy free ice cream has you covered on all fronts. This recipe is delicious, caffeine free and free of refined sugars. The combination of dates, almonds and Dandy Blend provide for a unique caramel-like flavour that you will love!

Sweetened with dates, it is still a dessert so mind your portions, but the healthy fat, protein and fiber help to modulate the overall glycemic impact of the sugar in the dates.

Some of the amazing health benefits include:

Dates are an excellent source of fiber, decreasing the body’s absorption of cholesterol. They are also a good source of B vitamins, magnesium, potassium and iron as well as antioxidant minerals zinc and selenium.

Almonds are an excellent source of healthy fats, protein, vitamin and minerals and are also a good source of antioxidant flavanoids. They are also protective against heart disease and diabetes.

Dandy blend is a coffee substitute that I have talked about here. It is a blend of dandelion, chicory and beetroot extracts. Dandelion offers benefits as a natural diuretic, chicory helps with glucose metabolism and beetroot provides cardio-protective, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
