Snickerdoodle Ice Cream

I planned on making homemade ice cream on the 4th of July but didn't. I still had my ice cream maker  contaienr in the freezer so I knew I was approximately 20 minutes from cold and creamy creations and set out to search (cyber style) for a healthier version than those we've used for so many years now.
This Snickerdoodle Ice Cream was really good!

Yield: Makes about 3 cups
With the irresistible flavors of cinnamon and vanilla, this ice cream gives a nod to the classic snickerdoodle cookie. (See bottom of recipe for a vegan option.)
1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk (full fat)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond or hemp milk
1/2 cup (packed) pitted Medjool dates
1/4 cup honey
1-3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth, 30-45 seconds. The dates should be completely blended with no chunks remaining.
Pour the ice cream into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
Go VeganTurn this into Maple Snickerdoodle Ice Cream by replacing the honey with Grade B maple syrup.
