Banana Toffee Ice Cream

Eating good food sends my hormones into party mode. It’s a sensory pleasure, just like listening to African drums or soaking up a swatch of unexpected sunshine. So here’s my favourite ice cream recipe to feed your cells as well as your soul.   When you’re looking for sweeteners, untreated honey gets my vote.
