Recipe by Real Simple Good

  • Cook: 4 hrs


8-10 in dates pitted and soaked hot water

1-2 tbsp filtered water

16 oz full fat coconut milk

1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp grass-fed collagen or gelatin

pinch of salt

3 pieces bacon cut into bits

pure maple syrup for topping


1Start by soaking your dates in warm water.

2Line a freezer safe container, like a bread pan, with parchment paper.

3Make your ice cream base by combining your coconut milk, vanilla, collagen and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Use a whisk to combine the ingredients. Pour into parchment lined pan.

4Place your soaked dates in a small mixing bowl. Add water and use a fork to mash up the dates, turning them into a paste. You can also do this in a food processor. Once the dates are broken down, add them to the ice cream base, spreading it around in the pan. Place in the freezer, and chill for three to four hours. If you use gelatin it will take less time to set.

5While the ice cream is setting, make your bacon. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat, and place your bacon bits in the pan. Stir occasionally, and cook until crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Once done, remove from heat and place on a paper towel lined plate.

6If you've chilled your ice cream for more than a few hours, remove from the freezer about 15-20 minutes before you serve.

7To serve, scoop ice cream into small bowls or ramekins, and sprinkle with bacon bits and drizzle a bit of maple syrup.

8This will last in the freezer for about a week in an airtight container, but tastes best when served within a few hours of making or within a couple days.
