With Morocco's heat ice cream is much enjoyed these days. I think that you might well enjoy this too. Cinnamon is native to Morocco and coffee is considered indispensable. Cinnamon has been known there from remote antiquity, and it was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and other great potentates.The optional figs pair amazingly with the ice cream.

The time to make will be much less if using an ice cream maker.
