Caramel Slice Nice Cream

This creamy, decadent nice cream recipe was inspired by the ‘caramel slice’ smoothie on Health Synergy app.

To create the thick ‘ice cream’ texture it is important that you freeze the bananas in advance. We recommend cutting them into small pieces so it is easier on your blender.

The combination of medjool dates, mesquite powder, hulled tahini and cashew butter creates the natural caramel flavour and the chocolate layer is simply made using cacao powder, vanilla, Himalayan salt and banana. For the ‘base’ we use whatever granola we have on hand. It is great with our cacao cluster granola from the app.

We love making nice cream for breakfast, or even as an afternoon snack/dessert. For a more substantial meal it serves 2 but can also serve 4 as a snack.
