Salted Butter Pecan Ice Cream (dairy-free)

IMG_6401

Ice cream has been one of my favourite treats, especially in the summer time. Who doesn’t like a cool, creamy treat during those warm months? Unfortunately my body doesn’t share this love, and its claimed a number of reactions when I decide to go in for a sweet dairy ice cream treat. My husband’s body has also claimed the same reactions, which include snoring, sneezing, congestion and allergies that ramp up to high alert. It has become just such a pain in our, you know what. We waver with wanting instant gratification of a delicious cone or with that night/next day gratification of having passed on the ice cream and feeling, oh-so-good, and not congested. I am sure many of you suffer from reactions like this from non-fermented or non-cultured dairy ( like yoghurt, which is cultured and easier to digest for people with dairy sensitivities) in some way, or some of you may not. I guarantee though, that you all will love this delicious salted butter pecan (dairy-free) ice cream. It has a smooth texture, can be kept in the freezer and is made with only a couple whole food ingredients.

This salted butter pecan ice cream is a prefect naturally sweet treat for you 12 + month old babe. It makes me so happy when I hear my little girl asking for ice cream and is completely satisfied when I give her a scoop of this salted butter pecan ice cream.

Hope you all enjoy,

Ingredients
  1. 2 bananas
  2. 1/4 cups raw pecans
  3. 1 1/2 tbsp. raw, pastured butter
  4. 2 tsp. maple syrup grade b (2) or c (3)
  5. 1/2 tsp. unrefined sea salt
Instructions
  1. (I didn't incorporate the banana freezing time in the above 'prep' time.)
  2. Cut your bananas into small bite sized pieces and lay on a plate or a cookie sheet and freeze for 2hrs.
  3. Heat a pan on the stove to medium/low and add your butter, pecan and sea salt. Mix your pecans with the butter and maple syrup and let caramelize on the heat of the pan, stirring occasionally so they don't stick in one spot and burn. (about 6 minutes or so) Spoon out into a bowl and allow to cool.
  4. Take out your bananas and slide them into a food processor, adding also your cooled pecans.
  5. Pulse and blend till a smooth ice cream like texture begins to swirl around. Spoon out the mixture into a bowl and place in the freezer to use when you'd like.
  6. You can garnish with more caramelized pecans, or raw.
Notes
  1. You can use coconut oil or ghee if you cant use butter to caramelize the pecans.
