Quick and Easy Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Quick and Easy Salted Caramel Ice Cream

If my 70 something self could talk to my 30 something self I think she would say –

“Slow down my love! Build the tower, draw the pictures, play with the trains and read the books.

Sip your tea and walk in the sun.

Breathe and for goodness sake, sleep!

Worry not about the things you cannot change nor about the decisions you have made.

See the best in those you love and only the best, just let the rest go.

Keep your Gran in your head and your heart. Her ways will guide you well.

Always give more than you take.

Always be grateful.

Always act with love.”


Not only is this a big bowl of instant, creamy, deliciousness. It is also perfect to eat any old time! Breakfast, snacks, desserts. Anything goes! I hope you enjoy it.

Quick and Easy Salted Caramel Ice Cream

  • 3 frozen bananas, chopped*
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter / spread**
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  1. Place the ingredients into your processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles ice cream.
  2. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

*peel ripe bananas prior to freezing.

**to make this nut free sub the almond butter with hulled tahini. Delicious!

note – this is best served right away but I also love it after it has been stored in the freezer. It will loose the soft serve consistency but I think it is still delicious.

    You ALWAYS give more than you take, but I really, really wish you’d listen to your 70 year old self! We won’t starve without a daily recipe, many bloggers only post once a week. Now go sleep/ crayon etc!
    ps I really don’t get this salted caramel craze…it just seems wrong to me, although the rest of the world disagrees! maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to try it….! xx

    • You can omit the salt, still divine!!! You really should try it but this one is noisy.
      Oh the blogging side is fine, I am always cooking anyhow and have many drafts. It was more my insomnia that was wearing me down – and housework, little worries etc! But I am on top of things now and can slow down! The sun is also shinning which fixes most things! xxx

    I love the introductory words. So glad I clicked your link (via Instagram). I make a similar ice cream and it’s just divine. But your words- a wonderful reminder – thank you xx

    • Thank YOU for taking the time to read my words, I really appreciate it and I am glad they resonated with you. Have a great day. Bianca. x

    I just made this and it was sensational! My husband wasn’t convinced and ended up asking for more. So simple, thanks!

    Hi, I love your site so much, and look forward to trying this out as we come into the hot weather. Do you think that honey would work in place of the maple syrup? Friends with bees keep us well supplied with honey, and the budget’s a bit tight for maple syrup at the moment 🙂 Thank you all the wonderful recipes and friendly wisdom you share xx

    • Thank YOU! I am glad you like my little space! Yes, using honey will be delicious! I hope you enjoy it. x

      • photographicarcadia

        Fantastic, thank you so much. I look forward to making it 🙂

  • Cam

    • Great to hear Cam!! Thank YOU for the feedback. I am glad it was enjoyed. x

    I made this with tahini and honey instead of the nut butter and maple syrup (because I’m addicted to tahini), I sprinkled with crushed cashews for crunch, so yum. Thanks for yet another delicious recipe.

    • Thank YOU! How perfect!! I too am addicted to hulled tahini! One of my all time favourites. x

    My husband says to me tonight “im going to the shops to buy icecream”, i said “let me make this ice cream out of bananas”, he was less than impressed, but i did it anyway. His reaction to trying it “not to shabby, this is one of the best desserts you have made”. It was soooo yummy i may just buy my fruit shop out af all their bananas so i can make it all the time

    • Fabulous!!!! That is great to hear!!! I am glad it has been enjoyed and I really appreciate the feedback. Be sure to let me know how you go with anything else that you try. x

    Ok, what is coconut cream to you? Thnx!

    • The one I use is in a tin, does that help?

      • Ludia Booth

        Thank you! I presume you mean the thick creamy top from the can of coconut milk? That’ll work right? Thanks!!

        • Just mix it up or use any part in this recipe, it doesn’t need to be the solid component.

        Thank you!
