Spiced Rum, Caramel, Cardamom Banana Ice Cream


“It’s not a requirement to eat animals, we just choose to do it, so it becomes a moral choice and one that is having a huge impact on the planet, using up resources and destroying the biosphere.”

— James Cameron

Let us take this time to thank Mr. Cameron for Avatar, Titanic, and his words of wisdom regarding veganism. Amen. Now, it’s time for sweets! Did I mention this ice cream is salted too?! I couldn’t fit it in the title…but everything is better salted. It’s science.

I may have just had bananas and rum for dinner the other night. What?? Don’t look at me that way. I’m fairly certain I remember one of the vegan food groups being banana and the other being rum. Okay, so that might be a bit of a fabrication, but bananas-runneth-over in our house right now and I had to think of something to do with them all.

Todd had ultimate frisbee the other night so it was sweets night for Katie and banana bread didn’t feel right. Ice cream, however, always feels right. I kept this recipe very simple which allows the rum, cardamom, and banana flavors to really shine. Creamed dates lend a sweet, caramel flavor and if the ice cream sits over night, the cardamom mellows.
