Ice-Cream with no dairy, sugar or honey

After reading an article by Dr Joel Fuhrman stating that honey, maple syrup and agave nectar are almost as bad for you as refined sugar I decided to make an ice-cream with only whole dates as the sweetener. See the article Are “Natural” and Low-glycaemic Sweeteners Healthful Alternatives to Sugar?

I couldn’t have been happier. Just as sweet and very, very tasty.
