Date Ice Cream


3 cups half & half

2 tsp vanilla

6 egg yolks

2/3 cups date syrup


Beat together date syrup, egg yolks and vanilla until nice whipped consistency takes shape. Set aside. Pour half & half in saucepan and stir over medium heat until hot, but not boiling. Pour heated half & half slowly into egg mixture, mixing together well. Pour back into pan and stir over low heat for 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. Take off heat and let cool. Place in ice cream maker, or, freeze in metal pan, whisking the ice cream or using an electric hand mixer once every hour for 4 hours until nice and creamy.

Optional - Once mixture is half way through freezing process, mix in date pieces and/or nuts!


This ice cream is simple to make and oh so dreamy. The flavor and texture will mesmerize your family and guests. Great on top of a warm brownie.

The whipped cream pictured was made in our whipped cream dispenser using 1 cup whipping cream and 2 teaspoons date syrup!

    Hi, Joy! I’m not sure how this recipe would turn out if you just subbed the almond milk for the half & half, but I can say that I have had great success using date syrup in a couple of vegan ice cream recipes. Really dreamy!

    This recipe looks so good. Do you think it will work with almond milk? Or non dairy milk?
    Btw your dates are the best I’ve tasted so far.
