Healthy Bananas Foster Caramel Ice Cream
When it comes to ice cream I am pretty old fashioned — I like vanilla and chocolate. When I was a kid though, I would always get vanilla ice cream because for some reason I was never a fan of the chocolate… it was never chocolatey enough for me. I also hated how the chocolate chips turned rock hard from the cold. If I was ever feeling adventurous I would go for the cookie dough or cookies ‘n’ cream flavor.
Yes, that was me stepping out of my comfort zone.
So you can probably guess that I didn’t think of this particular ice cream flavor:
Bananas Foster Caramel Ice Cream.
Bananas Foster? AND Caramel? Quick, someone, give me a hyperventilation bag.
My sister actually came up with this ice cream flavor. I asked my family if they wanted any specific ice cream flavors and my sister blurted out, “BANANAS FOSTER!” At first I had no idea what was in a typical bananas foster so I was a bit intimidated, but it was much easier than making what my mom wanted (creme brulee ice cream) and it was probably going to taste much better than what my dad wanted (pistachio).
I did my research and I learned that Bananas Foster is usually made up of bananas, lots of brown sugar and rum. I felt a little bit better about my endeavor and was excited to try my creation.
And guess what?
IT’S FREAKIN’ DELICIOUS!

Mmm, so good. I’m really glad I finally broke free from my “I-only-like-vanilla-and-chocolate-thank-you-very-much” belief. This Bananas Foster Caramel Ice Cream is the bomb. It was hard for people to believe the ice cream was refined sugar free and 100% healthy! Try this recipe for yourself and you’ll see why 🙂
