Salted Caramel Icecream

Salted Caramel Icecream

Yummy Gluten Free, Dairy Free Icecream

Finding a special treat for the kids can prove somewhat challenging, especially if there are dietary restrictions to be considered.  I found this amazingly rich salted caramel ice-cream which is easy to make with or without an ice-cream maker.  Ghee does not contain casein or lactose, the substances in dairy which often pose an issue for the gastrointestinal system, so it is an ideal substitute for butter on this occasion.  You only need a small amount for dessert as it is quite rich and it certainly hits the sweet spot!  You could also make the ice-cream on its own without the caramel to speed things up.

Caramel

2 tbsp raw honey

1/2 tsp himalayan salt

1/4 cup organic coconut cream

1 tbsp ghee (or use butter if dairy allowed)

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Icecream

300ml organic coconut milk

1/4 cup raw honey

1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

2 egg yolks

 

Directions

In a small saucepan, heat the caramel ingredients on low heat for 5 mins until you reach a rolling boil around edge of mixture. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place coconut milk, raw honey, vanilla in a saucepan over low heat and whisk until well blended. Remove from heat and set aside.

Whisk egg yolks in separate bowl. Add a small amount of ice-cream mixture to ‘temper’, stirring continuously so eggs don’t scramble.  Add second small amount.  Once combined, pour egg mixture back into saucepan and stir.

Add caramel mixture to icecream.  Stir until combined and freeze until slightly firm.

Follow directions on your ice-cream mixer and churn. Freeze. After 30-45 minutes of freezing, stir again and then freeze for another 1-3 hours before enjoying with frozen berries.  If you don’t have an ice-cream mixer, place mixture in a container and freeze. Remove from freezer and beat with an electric mixer for several minutes to break up ice crystals. Return to freezer.  Repeat 2-3 times.
