Last night cravings were real, and when not even Google couldn't find the kind of recipe I wanted I decided to play around in the kitchen
and see what I could come up with. I've had this idea about Carrot Cake Ice Cream ever since Ben & Jerry released their Cinnamon Bun flavour, which is to die for. As always I'm a big fan of the 'quick & healthy'-version, so here's my Quick & Healthy Carrot Cake Ice Cream.
The things you'll need are (no measurements - just freebase ok):
The ice cream is made in two sections: prepare & blend. Start off by honey roasting the walnuts quickly
in a hot pan to make them a bit crunchy and sweet. Then grate the carrot and squeeze some lemon juice on top to get that
fresh, tangy contrast against the caramely sweetness.
Chop up the bananas then add in the dates, ginger and spices & mix everything together. If you find the taste to be a bit bland
be generous with the cinnamon- it's a real game changer. Add in the oat milk gradually to achive the right consistency.
If you've done everything right you should have something that looks like this:
Then it's just a matter of adding the carrots & the honey roasted walnuts, roughly blend everything together and EAT!
I was really happy about how it turned out and I will definately alternate this with my usual chocolate/banana-ice cream.
