Ingredients

  • 5 frozen bananas
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1.5 x caramel sauce recipe with 1/2 tsp salt added (Note 1)
  • 1 x cookie dough recipe (Note 2)

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, blend the frozen bananas and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
  2. Transfer the banana ice cream into a bowl and mix in 3/4 of the prepared cookie dough (beforehand, crumble it into pieces of varying sizes). Leave the rest for sprinkling on top later.
  3. Transfer 1/2 of the banana cookie dough ice cream into the container you will use to freeze the ice cream. Spread it out into an even layer.
  4. Drizzle on top 1/3 of the salted caramel sauce.
  5. Transfer the other 1/2 of the banana cookie dough ice cream on top. Smooth it out into an even layer.
  6. Drizzle on top 1/3 of the salted caramel sauce (if you want, you can use a spoon or spatula to create a swirl effect). Leave the rest of the salted caramel sauce for drizzling on top later.
  7. Freeze overnight. (Note 3)

  8. To serve, scoop out the salted caramel cookie dough ice cream into a bowl, drizzle with caramel sauce and sprinkle with cookie dough pieces.
  9. Enjoy!
  10. The healthy cookie dough ice cream keeps well in the freezer for about 2 - 3 weeks. (It'll be gone within a day, though.)

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Get the salted caramel sauce recipe here! I recommend adding the salt slowly bit by bit until you judge it to be just right. You can always add more, but you can't take it away.

Note 2: Get the healthy gluten free & vegan cookie dough recipe here!

Note 3: As the salted caramel sauce contains coconut oil, it will firm up in the freezer and become cloudy – that's natural and doesn't affect the taste!
