Directions

  1. Soak Garbanzo Beans in cool water overnight.
  2. Soak 3 dates overnight in a large cup of water in the refrigerator.
  3. Rinse beans & discard water. Place 6 cups of water in a large pot, bring to a boil and add the chickpeas, reduce heat to a slow boil for 1 hour, making sure they are always covered with water.
  4. Rinse beans under cold water until cool.
  5. Spread on a baking sheet and remove skins (makes for creamier ice cream).
  6. Process the re-hydrated dates in a blender with a little of the soaking liquid until they are of a good consistency.
  7. Add the vanilla and almond milk to blender and puree.
  8. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until creamy (you can add a little more vanilla almond milk if necessary).
  9. Chill in the refrigerator for about 3 hours and then transfer to your ice cream maker. This will speed up the process.
