Salted Caramel & Banana Ice-Cream

This will blow your mind.  You would not believe this isn’t artisan-made, gourmet ice-cream.  Seriously – try this now!  Unless it’s winter where you are, in which case put the heater on and then try this.

Salted Caramel & Banana Ice-Cream

Salted Caramel & Banana Ice-Cream


  • ½ banana (I used mine frozen, including the peel)
  • ½ cup dates, pitted (I used medjool dates)
  • ¼ cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 tbsp coconut nectar (or you could use agave nectar, rice malt syrup, maple, syrup, etc)
  • Pinch himalayan rock salt
  • 2-3 cups ice


  • Put all the ingredients into the Vitamix 2L container (you could use any high-powered blender, or perhaps even a food processor) in the order listed and secure the lid.
  • Select Variable 1.  Turn the machine on and quickly increase the speed to 10, then to High.
  • Use tamper really well to press the ingredients into the blades.
  • In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form.
  • Stop the machine and serve immediately.
  • Note: Do not over-mix or the ice-cream will begin to melt.
