Chocolate Caramel ViceCreme

This is when it came out of the ice cream maker - nice and soft - just the way I like it !!!!!

This is after it had been in the freezer overnight.  Of course I had to let it sit for awhile so it would be nice and soft like the picture above !!!!  

1/4 cup almond milk
2 Tbsp Arrowroot Powder  ( I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup almond milk
2 cups soy creamer 
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup chopped dates

1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 tsp Caramel Extract  (use 1 Tbsp for a stronger caramel flavor)
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Mix 1/4 cup almond milk with the arrowroot powder and set aside. 

In a blender, blend 1/2 cup almond milk, peanut butter and chopped dates until smooth.

Mix the soy creamer, 1/2 cup almond milk, cocoa powder and date mixture in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Let boil for about 1 minute - stirring constantly.   Remove from heat.  Add the arrowroot mixture, vanilla extract and caramel extract.  Mix thoroughly.  

Let cool and then make in an ice cream maker. Slowly add in the chocolate chips while the ice cream maker is churning.  (I added mine in while the mixture was still too hot and they melted !!!)

I actually have 2 ice cream makers; 1 that uses ice and 1 that doesn't.  I really like them both.  

The Hamilton Beach 68330R 4-Quart Automatic Ice-Cream Maker uses ice.  You can make a bigger batch of vicecreme, and I also think the vicecreme turns out "harder" than the other one.  At first I thought it would be a pain using one with the ice, but it really isn't.

The Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker does not use ice.  The vicecreme is softer than the other, but still comes out good.  The one thing I found is the bowl really needs to be kept in the freezer for about a week before using it.  There were times I only left it in the freezer a couple of days, and the vicecreme was REALLY soft.  The capacity is much smaller than the one that uses ice.

I tell you the truth, whoever hears what I say and believes in the One who sent me has eternal life.  That person will not be judged guilty but has already left death and entered life.
