POSSIBLE INGREDIENT SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Powdered brown sugar can be replaced with any powdered sweetener.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: First, let's make the salted caramel.

In a small pot add white sugar and cook until dissolves. Don't forget to stir continuously!

When the sugar is all melted add butter and combine.

Lastly, add water, soy cream, and salt.

Set the caramel aside and let it cool down before moving on to the next step!

Step 2: In a large bowl whisk the solid part of canned coconut milk, soy cream, sugar, and salt.

Step 3: Pour the ice cream mixture into a square baking pan and swirl caramel inside.

Step 4: Put the ice cream into a freezer for about 3 hours or overnight.

Step 5: This step is optional, but I highly encourage you not to skip this step because it makes such a huge difference!

But if you don't have a food processor, don't worry, simply wait for a little bit and scoop the ice cream into cones.

But if you have a food processor, chop the ice cream into chunks and blend. The ice cream will be smooth, creamy, and fluffy.

SERVING

Serve this salted caramel ice cream with extra caramel on top. You can also add sprinkles, chocolate chips, or extra salt.

STORING

Store this ice cream in a freezer for up to 1 week.

However, I recommend eating it within the first 2-3 days so it tastes fresh.
