BOOZY BANANA BUTTERSCOTCH ICE CREAM

Even if you’re not a fan of bananas, consider trying this ice cream.  I don’t like the taste of bananas on their own, but I love them in smoothies and ice cream recipes like this because they add a bit of natural sweetness and smooth, rich texture.  In this recipe, the bananas even add some extra depth of flavor, since they’re roasted and added to a traditional ice cream base with egg yolks, sugar, half and half, and cream, made boozy with dark rum in the ice cream and a Salty Bourbon Butterscotch Sauce generously drizzled on top.
