How to

• Soak and drain your cashews
• Add cashews, coconut milk, coconut oil, syrup, vanilla extract and salt to a blender
• Blend thoroughly until creamy and smooth
• For best results chill it a bit before you add it to the ice-cream maker by popping in the fridge (about 6 hours) or freezer (1 – 2 hours) for a bit
• Add to your ice-cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions

While it’s churning away – make your delicious date caramel:

• Add the dates to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth, adding warm water to thin it a bit if necessary. Season with sea salt (and bourbon if desired) and blend again.
• Season with sea salt (and the bourbon too if you like) and blend once more to combine

To finish off

• Transfer to a freezer-safe container, spoon in the caramel and swirl it in with a knife or spoon
• Smooth it over and cover
• Freeze for 4 to 6 hours until firm
• Keeps for up to a week
