Salted Caramel Ice Cream |

 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 SugarSalted Caramel Ice Cream |


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!

    I really want to make this tomorrow–perfect use for my new raw milk & cream that I’ve been “saving”! 😉 Now, already I have questions, though: 1) I have both coconut palm sugar and Rapidura–could either be used? 2) No salt IN the recipe, just on top? 3) You mentioned something in another post about adding gelatin to ice cream? 4) Obviously I can’t eat the whole batch myself in one sitting (well I probably CAN, but I will try not to!) so, how does one store homemade ice cream successfully?

    1. Linda says:

      Hi I think I am missing something. What is 1 cup of raw or organic half an half. I’m confused. Looks and sounds amazing though. Keen to try it. Linda

    OMG was this yummy! Sud and I are thinking about making this in the office ASAP!

    Hey Jan,
    First off I would use coconut sugar, it offers the flavor I was looking for (kind of a carmel flavor). There is no salt in the recipe, that is correct. I like the crunch of it on top of the ice cream and i feel you get more of the salty flavor that way. You do NOT need gelatin in this recipe, there is enough fat that it won’t get hard. 2 cups of heavy cream is a lot, and the more fat you have in ice cream the less firm it will get (this should give you the consistency of store bought ice cream and is scoop-able.) Are you skimming the cream off of the top of your raw milk?

  4. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    Good question there, Halle–I haven’t opened it yet, so should I skim it? How much should I get, and do I then add that towards the cream amount? Or, should I stir it into the milk? This is my first experience, so I have NO idea! I’m a raw-milk virgin! 😉

  5. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Ok, here is what I would do. Before you stir it, skim off the top of your milk you will be able to see where it is different (it’s in glass right?) My milk came in a 1 gallon jar and there was about 2 inches of cream on top. I used this as the half and half in my recipe because I am sure I skimmed some milk in it as well. Then add 2 cups of whipping cream and then stir milk and add your 1 1/2 cup whole milk. Then proceed with the recipe. How long have you had this raw milk? The shelf life is much less due to the un pasteurization. I thought you got your milk last week??

    This is very similar to my last batch of ice cream. I used a mixture of coconut sugar and honey and used real vanilla bean. I use strictly the cream on top of my milk. I do, however, “cook” mine. Heat the milk and cream, mix egg yolk in the sugar, slowly put in a little of the heated mixture to the egg/sugar, then a little more, then add back to the pan and heat, just until it sticks to the back of a wooden spoon. I allow to cool to room temp, then in the fridge overnight before putting in the ice cream mixture. It was amazing! I will definitely try all coconut sugar next time and sprinkle the salt. I LOVE the salty caramel flavor!

    Sounds delicious Rhonda!

  8. Andrea Shink says:

    I might try this tonite with coconut milk… NOW!!!

  9. Andrea Shink says:

    ps, the sprouts & squash was a hit again! not a drop left!!!

  10. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Good to hear Andrea :) Let me know how it turns out with the coconut milk…I think it would taste great.

  11. Andrea Shink says:

    so far soooooo good! just put into the freezer. Sam said it was yummy, but I didn’t try it yet. will advise.

  12. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    My first go at making ice cream seems to be a smash! Thanks to Halle’s recipe and coaching… It made SOOOO much, that it was starting to ooze out of the top of the lid! I licked the spatula and beaters clean, and scraped the bowl as much as possible, and it was delicious! Then I stored it in several small glass containers in the freezer–but first, I added mini chocolate chips to 2 of them, because I know when my husband gets back in town THAT will be his favorite way to eat it! THANKS, Halle!

  13. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I am so glad it turned out Jan:)

  14. Linda says:
