Ice Cream
  1. 3 bananas, cut into chunks and frozen
  2. 1 sweet apple (I use Honeycrisp), cored, cut into chunks and frozen
  3. 1 cup roasted sweet potato, cut into chunks and frozen
  4. 5 dates, chopped and soaked in water for about 15 minutes; drained
  5. 1 cup non-dairy milk (I use soy)
  6. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  7. 1 tsp. cinnamon
  8. 1/4 tsp. cardamom
  9. 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  10. pinch allspice
  1. 4 Tbsp. rolled oats
  2. 4 Tbsp. chopped pecans
  3. 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
Make the streusel
  1. In a small pan, lightly toast the rolled oats and the pecans. Remove from the heat and put into a small bowl. Stir in the maple syrup. Set aside until ready to use.
Make the ice cream
  1. Combine all of the ice cream ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until very smooth and creamy. This requires some patience and much stirring with a spatula to move the frozen chunks around. It will eventually become soft and silky.
  2. Divide ice cream into bowls and top generously with streusel. Consume immediately!

    Aah that looks amazing! You’d think the cold weather would have me wanting only warm things, but there’s something about ice cream on a chilly evening that’s just decadent.

    I just read the guest post! That is one beautiful ice cream Annie! I have used sweet potato just one time in my chocolate peppermint ice cream. It really does work to add sweetness. I love your take on these flavors of apple pie and turning it into ice cream! Delish!

    Oh my goodness, say no more! This looks incredible. Love the thought of a bit of crunchiness on top of smooth, creaminess. Heading over there right meow!
