Prep Time15 minsCook Time40 minsTotal Time55 mins
 1 l Coconut milk (full fat)
 4 medjool pitted dates
 80 ml hot water
 ½ tsp salt
 2 tsp vanilla extract
 400 g mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
 1 tsp ground cinnamon
 1 tsp ground allspice
 1 tsp ground nutmeg
 ½ tsp ground cloves (or 4 whole cloves)
 40 g dried unsweetened cranberries
 40 g currants
 40 mixed peel
 2 tsp grated root ginger (about 4cm)
 1 tbsp water
1

Make the ice cream: chop the dates and place in a blender with hot water, vanilla and salt. Blitz into a paste then add the coconut milk and whizz together.

2

Pour the coconut mix into a container and put in the freezer.

3

Make the fruit mince: In a pot over very low heat, add all remaining ingredients and allow to stew with the lid on for 10-15 minutes - stir regularly.

4

Refrigerate the fruit mince mixture so it cools completely.

5

Combine: After an hour or two, pull the ice cream out of the freezer and give it a stir - pour it into a mould if you’re using one (a loaf tin works well!).

6

Scoop the fruit mince into the ice cream and gently stir through to distribute.

7

Return to the freezer and leave overnight to freeze solid.

8

Turn out of the mould and slice (or scoop out in portions) and serve between eight.
