Toffee Pecan Crunch Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Toffee Pecan Crunch Ice Cream (Dairy Free) - Quirky Cooking 

Who would believe a dairy-free ice cream could taste this good! 

We love our Chocolate Banana Nut ice cream, but I felt like a change today, and I remembered I had some Rapadura toffee leftover in the fridge from when I made the croquembouche the other day… and some pecans in the freezer… so this is what I came up with.  Yum!

If you don’t have any toffee lurking in the fridge, this is how you make it… 

Note: You can find fine sea salt and vanilla powder for this recipe in my online store!

  1. 1 cup Rapadura
  2. 1/4 cup water
  1. Stir together in a saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. Stir until granules are dissolved, brushing down insides of pan with a pastry brush dipped in water.
  3. Allow syrup to simmer until it's a dark caramel colour and has the consistency of syrup. Drip a bit into a cup of cool water now and then to check if it's ready - if it forms a crunchy ball of toffee, it's ready; if it spreads out, it's not. While it's simmering, watch it carefully, and when it's getting close to being ready, TURN DOWN THE HEAT! Don't let it burn!!!
  4. Pour the hot toffee onto a tray lined with baking paper and leave to cool.
  5. Crack it into shards with the back of a spoon.

Okay.  Once you’ve got your toffee ready, you can make your ice cream.

    I would just about feel ok giving my kids this for breakfast! Yum! Although I’m not sure they’d go for pecans, or any other nut. Hmmmm….worth a try though, methinks.

    Jo, I finally got around to making this one and it is an ingenious thing indeed! The banana makes a surprisingly smooth and creamy ‘ice-cream’ and it freezes really well. Thanks for another great idea!

    sounds lovely. My son can’t eat bananas so was thinking I could replace with Coconut cream made into ice cubes. Have you tried that with this recipe?

    Thanks Fee

  4. Fiona Elliott says:

    does it freeze well or you have to eat it all straight away…which I don’t have a problem with

  5. Jo Whitton says:

    Fiona, it would be lovely with coconut cream and rapadura instead of the bananas – not quite the same, but I’m sure it would be good! It freezes okay, but I wouldn’t freeze it for a long period of time as it’s best fresh. 🙂
