Place the moist, pitted dates into a food processor and process for around 2-3 minutes. Once chopped into small pieces, add a little bit of hot water a little at a time until the mixture forms a thick paste.
In a cup or separate bowl, mash the raspberries using a fork, then stir in the maple syrup and set aside.
In a separate bowl, scoop out the coconut cream from the cans, reserving the clear liquid for other uses and whip using a hand mixer until creamy.
Continue to whip whilst slowly adding the vanilla extract, cashew milk and date mixture.
Once fully incorporated, add in the raspberry mixture and stir until slightly swirled then, transfer the mixture into a parchment lined container and cover loosely with plastic wrap and foil to help it freeze. Place in the freezer for around 3 hours for a soft, mousse-like ice cream. If freezing over night, set out for 15 minutes prior to scooping. Tip: Run your ice cream scoop under hot water before diving in!
