Banana Chocolate Caramel Ice Cream

Have a sweet tooth for ice cream but want to avoid the weight gain? This delicious guilt-free ice cream recipe created by Jonathan (@jinglifestyle) adds a healthy spin on the beloved traditional ice cream.

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.

Any good homemade chocolate requires the right touch of sweetness to make all the difference. That is why with BochaSweet you can swap out cane sugar and all other sugar alternatives to create the perfect chocolate. You can start making your own chocolate simply and easily using a few tricks.

The first thing you want to do is melt down some cocoa butter (your desired quantity) using a double boiler. Once, it nearly is melted down add in the desired amount of BochaSweet and begin to stir. This will slowly melt down the crystalline granules and easily dissolve into the cocoa butter. Slowly stir over a period of several minutes, and you want to make sure it doesn’t harden. So, remove the melted mixture from the stove and finish by adding in your favorite chocolate powder to make the perfect chocolate.
