Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Plum & fig is one of those flavours that I find utterly fascinating. They combine so well and create a taste bud reviving experience.

This recipe is vegan, gluten-free and free of refined sugars and uses only natural sweetness of plums and figs. The result is more on the sweet & sour side. If you have quite a sweet tooth, better add some sweetener of your choice.

You only need 4 ingredients and you can make this plum & fig ice-cream with and without an ice-cream maker.

For approx. 1 liter you’ll need:

approx. 10 plums, pitted
10 dried figs
1/2 cup (70g) cashews, soaked in filtered water for at least 4 hours, then rinsed and drained
2 cups water

Preparation with ice-cream maker:

1. In a blender, blend all ingredients until smooth.

2. Transfer to ice cream maker and churn until firm enough. If it is too soft, pop it into a container and into the freezer for a while.

Preparation with high-speed blender:

1. In a blender, blend all ingredients until smooth.

2. Pour into freezer safe containers until approx. finger thick high. Place in freezer until solid.

3. Once frozen, pop the slab(s) onto a chopping board and cut into smaller chunks.

5. Place chunks in high-speed blender and blend on lower medium speed, using a tamper to push the squares into the blades. Blend until smooth. Transfer to dessert bowls immediately or pop it into a freezer safe container to let it firm up again a little more.

For the roasted walnuts:

Roast 1/2 cup chopped walnuts in a good non-stick pan for 5-10 minutes on lower heat. Then drizzle with 1 tablespoon coconut nectar (or other liquid sweetener of your choice) and stir well. Let cook for a few more minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened up.

Enjoy! 🙂
