The mellow sweetness of bananas and the tacky flavour of butterscotch seem to be a match made in heaven, as you will agree after tasting this unique ice-cream. Bananas not only impart a natural, fruity sweetness to the ice-cream, they also improve the creaminess. Together with butterscotch sauce, it gives the ice-cream an irresistible aroma as well. Make sure you add the praline only after the ice-cream is semi-set, in order to retain its crunch. Serve scoopfuls of this ice-cream as it is, or with a topping of nuts or fruits.
