Equipment

  • Ice cream maker
  • Parchment
  • baking sheet
  • Mixing bowls
  • spatula
  • whisk
  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • Sieve
  • Ice cream maker

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Whipping Cream
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 2/3 cup White Sugar
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 6 Egg Yolks
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Ripe Bananas
  • 1/2 cup Caramel sauce
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Peanuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  • Place peeled bananas on parchment-lined baking sheet and roast in a 350 degree oven until they are caramelized, approximately 1 hour. You want the bananas to shrivel and the liquid to caramelize, almost the texture of dried fruit leather.
  • Remove bananas from the oven. Mash the roasted bananas and let cool.
  • In a small pot, simmer cream, milk, and salt until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk yolks and vanilla extract. Whisking constantly, slowly whisk 1/3 of the hot cream into the yolks, then, whisk the yolk mixture back into the pot with the cream.
  • Return pot to medium-low heat and add mashed bananas. Cook until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl. Remove as much of the fruit fibre as possible, otherwise the mouthfeel will be unpleasantly gritty.
  • Cool mixture at room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Churn cooled banana base in an ice cream machine according to manufactures directions.
  • Scoop finished roasted banana ice cream into a large mixing bowl and add caramel sauce, peanuts and chocolate chips. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to incorporate the caramel, nuts and chocolate chips into the banana ice cream base.
  • Serve Chocolate Caramel Banana Nut Ice Cream directly from the bowl as soft serve, or store in the freezer until ready to eat.
  • Make a delicious Chocolate Caramel Banana Nut Ice Cream Sundae by serving scoops with Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, sliced banana and chocolate or caramel drizzle.
