How To Make The Salted Caramel
You only need four simple ingredients to make this Paleo-friendly caramel sauce. Simply simmer rich coconut milk with a bit of vanilla extract, sea salt, and coconut sugar to create a silky-sweet flavor – no refined sugar needed!
When simmering the caramel sauce, you may notice that it reduces slightly as it thickens. This is a good sign that it’s ready to be transferred to the cooling jars.
As the caramel cools, the ingredients will transform into a rich sauce that rivals any ice cream shop.
The Secret To Making Dairy-Free Ice Cream
The best way to make dairy-free ice cream (without compromising taste or flavor) is to use cashews as the base. When you soak the cashews in water overnight, they’ll soften so they blend up easily to create a fluffy, creamy texture. Plus, you get even more rich, nutty flavor in your salted caramel ice cream!
How Collagen Makes It Even Better
Adding a few scoops of collagen to your ice cream base instantly upgrades it with nutrients like amino acids. Collagen is flavorless, so you won’t even know it’s there!
If you’re new to using collagen powder, its benefits range from boosting gut health to increasing skin elasticity. Stir it into your morning coffee, pancake batter, or smoothies to get your daily dose (though of course, we think this salted caramel ice cream is the best way to get your fix).
Helpful Tips To Get Started:
- Prep ahead of time. Save time by making the caramel sauce two days in advance.
- You’ll have leftover caramel sauce. There will be about 2-3 tablespoons of caramel sauce left over. Use it to drizzle on top of Paleo brownies, pancakes, or even sweet potatoes.
- Don’t let it freeze solid. Freezing it too long can result in a harder texture. If this happens, just thaw the ice cream for 10 minutes at room temperature before scooping.
