Caramelized Banana Ice Cream

Morsels of Life - Caramelized Banana Ice Cream - Bananas, caramelized with some brown sugar, and then churned into ice cream with cashew milk. Feel free to substitute cream or milk for even more yumminess!

I'd bought some cashew milk, and we needed to find a delicious (or at least tolerable) way to use it. I thought back to the caramelized banana bread I'd made many moons ago, and wondered if the power of caramelized bananas could transform the cashew milk. (The ripe bananas sitting on the counter also contributed to my thought process.) Well, it turns out, the answer is a definite yes! This caramelized banana ice cream does take a bit longer than your usual ice cream since you're caramelizing the bananas, mixing everything together, and cooling before freezing. If you don't happen to have some cashew milk lying around, I'm betting you'd get an even yummier, creamy bowl of ice cream if you used cream instead.

What's your favorite way to enjoy caramelized bananas?

  1. I've never considered caramelizing bananas for ice cream, but this looks delicious! I just got a Cuisinart ice cream maker & RancherMan loves ice cream. There's no better cool dessert on a hot, Texas summer day. Thanks for sharing! (Stopping by from the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop)

  6. Great idea! I don't know if I've had cashew milk - I do like the almond, though. I love the caramelized banana idea!

    1. I bet it'd work with almond milk too! Honestly, I'm not too much a fan of the store bought milks (of any variety). Kinda prefer the DIY kind. :) Hope you enjoy!
