This is based on Juliano’s Robbin’s Ice cream. I made it and thought it was a bit bland, and thought some spices would jazz it up. It has a nice exotic flavor. It was devoured at a pot luck I took it to! It would make a perfect ending to an Asian, Indian, or Thai meal.
1 cup mango, diced
2 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
1 cup cashews, soaked
1 cup banana, cut in chunks
2 cup dates, soft or soaked
½ teaspoon cardamom, ground
½ teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder, ground
Please adjust the spices to taste as I am not exactly sure how much of each I used. I think more cardamom than 5-spice is the key. Blend all ingredients and chill until cold. Run through a commercial ice cream machine until frozen. You could also freeze the ingredients and then blend after. Enjoy!
