Sometimes, even people following the Paleo lifestyle like a sweet treat. Which is why I consulted my Pinterest board for some tasty ideas for ice cream-Paleofied of course! On my Everything Paleo board, I found a tempting looking ice cream called Caramel Almond Crunch from http://Flavourandsavour.com. Well, to make a long story short, I had no dates. Dates, evidently make the best caramel…not raisins. Which I subbed. Not horrible and with a few tweaks, I believe I can improve the flavor. Butter makes everything better right? My favorite (and only) butter is http://Kerrygold.com brand because it is grass-fed and simply delicious. I think if I heat the “mistake” up in a saucepan and add some butter, I’ll save this mess of a dessert I made. Now, the ice cream itself was frozen bananas, blended to a creamy texture. Then came the caramel and on top, my favorite homemade trail mix, Maple Nut Trail Mix from http://Dontmesswithmama.com.
Like I said, pretty good but could have been better. When in the kitchen, mistakes are how you learn, become inventive, and sometimes even create a new masterpiece. What are your food fails? I’d love to hear them, or any suggestions on how I might improve this one! All comments are welcome, here on the patio!
