200 g roasted hazelnuts
1 can of coconut milk or cream
1 tsp of vanilla extract or rum
Roast your hazelnuts if you have raw nuts. Or simply buy roasted ones. It is important to have them roasted to get this divine flavor.
Soak the roasted nuts for 5 hours in order to help your blender and digestion as well.
Peel the dates and put them into the blender with other ingredients. Blend it up till nice and creamy.
Taste it, if you want it to be sweeter – add a couple more dates. If you want, you can add some nut pieces or cacao nibs to the ice cream.
Transfer the mixture in a box and put it in the freezer for 4-5 hours to set. Serve as is or with nuts on top and enjoy!
