How to make Banana Caramel Ice Cream

Prepare the caramel frosting; collect the granulated sugar and water in a saucepan, put on the fire and caramelize until the granulated sugar will be browned. Pour the cream over the caramel, paying attention to the splashes (1). Put it back on the heat and melt any lumps. Transfer the frosting to a jar and store in the refrigerator.

For the ice cream: mash the bananas with a fork and add a few drops of lemon juice to prevent them from turning black (2).

Add the yogurt to the banana puree and mix well (3).

Heat the cream with the sugar and carob seed flour (4).

Add the hot cream to the previously prepared mixture (5) and blend everything with an immersion blender. Let the mixture cool, then let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Meanwhile, put a saucepan or a metal container in the freezer.

Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker (6) and whisk until you will get the right consistency.

Remove the ice cream from the ice cream maker, transfer it to a very cold saucepan or a metal container and mix it with a part of the caramel sauce to variegate it (7). Store the ice cream in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

Just before serving, distribute the ice cream in bowls, garnish with fresh fruit and chocolate chips as desired and bring it to the table (8).
