Banana Chocolate Caramel Ice Cream

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups of ice
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk/cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons maca powder
  • 1-2 scoops whey protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon BochaSweet
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Pinch of sea salt

    Caramel and Chocolate Syrup
  • 2 teaspoon BochaSweet
  • 1 tablespoon mesquite powder
  • 1/4 cup melted cocoa butter
  • 2 teaspoon BochaSweet
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate powder
  • 1/4 cup melted cocoa butter

DIRECTIONS

Begin by filling a high-speed blender with 1 cup of ice, coconut milk, maca, frozen banana, egg yolk, and remaining ingredients. Blend for a solid three minutes until super creamy.  Prepare for the ice cream maker or place in a freezer in a bowl for 1-2 hours (momentarily check on it and stir clumps). Create the butterscotch caramel topping by mixing ¼ cup cacao butter in a bowl with BochaSweet and mesquite powder. Whisk briskly. For the chocolate syrup you will follow a similar process with cacao butter but mix with some cocoa powder. Scoop ice cream into a bowl and pour the topping over.

BochaSweet is the perfect sugar replacement to use when making your favorite frosting. Here is some tips you can use to make sure your frosting comes out with a heavenly “melt-in-your-mouth” sweet taste.

  1. Make sure to start with butter that is at room temperature. If needed lightly melt the butter in order to speed up the mixing process.
  2. Add in some BochaSweet, with some whey, vanilla extract, and pinch of sea salt. Whisk all the ingredients in a bowl making sure to mash the butter constituents completely.
  3. Enjoy as a treat or layer on a cake, cupcakes, cookies, or however you desire!
