Two ingredient banana caramel swirl ice cream

02.17.12

I recently read a blog by a woman whose philosophy on food was that she only eats what she wants, which turns out to be mostly raw and vegan. I thought about this notion and came to the conclusion that if I only ate what I want, I would weigh a million pounds. I want sweets. All sweets, all the time. I don’t know that I’ve ever reached a point where I had eaten too many sweets. I could eat dessert three meals a day and be totally satisfied (and malnourished). Rather than stuffing my face with sugary processed ice cream, tonight I made myself some banana’s only ice cream. Well, it was banana’s only until I had the even-more brilliant idea of swirling in the leftover caramel from my apple pie puffs. Now I call it “two ingredient banana caramel swirl ice cream,” which might be a slight misnomer because, in fact, I used more than one ingredient to make the caramel (but you should have some leftover from making the apple pie puffs too, right? You did make the apple pie puffs, didn’t you?). The best part is that this ice cream is so very easy  to make that it’ll blow your mind – you don’t even need an ice cream maker (an ice cream maker attachment is added to the list of kitchen gadgets I dream of owning).
