Oh La La!
I remember the first time I tried some organic salted caramel ice cream. I was at a fine dining restaurant and a server highly recommended the salted caramel ice cream.
How strange, I thought…who would want salt and caramel together. But I alway go with the servers recommendation and ordered it. It was absolutely fantastic!
The sweet and salty worked so perfectly with the creamy ice cream. Such a perfect combination of flavors, I was amazed. So anytime I am out and see salted caramel ice cream, I am sure to order it.
Using Coconut Sugar
I actually stumbled upon this recipe by accident. I had just got a fresh shipment of raw milk and my girls were dying for some homemade ice cream.
I have always wanted to try Organic Coconut Sugar in ice cream. I have found that organic coconut sugar makes for a good brown sugar substitute but was curious how it would do in ice cream.
So I substituted coconut sugar in and it quickly colored my cream to a nicely brown tint. I grabbed a little taste and knew I was onto something.
I was so excited when I sampled my finished product, absolutely delicious!
Adding In Toppings
One reason that I absolutely love making homemade ice cream is that you can completely customize it to your liking!
I found that walnuts taste amazing in salted caramel ice cream! If you haven’t tried it, I encourage you too!
Oh, and whatever you do…don’t forget the 3 minute 3 ingredient salted caramel sauce. It is truly A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!
Feel free to add in any of your favorite toppings into this delicious ice cream!
