Are you still serving, gasp, plain vanilla ice cream and calling it a summer dessert? How dare you! Look, it's time to make up for the past sins and churn some ice creams, with heat, spice, and plenty of sabor. Make a few small batches, keep them in the fridge, and set them out on those hazy summer nights. They're great for kids parties or to add a touch of playfulness to any summer soiree.
In this ice cream you get a double dose of plantains: they're used in the custard and in the topping. That's right! The plantains are mixed into the vanilla ice cream base and frozen, making the ice cream all that more rich. Then more plantains are caramelized with butter and sugar for a an extra sweet and decadent topping.
