When I need a healthy sweet treat that’s ready in a flash – this salted caramel nice-cream is my go-to! It’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet with added crunch from pistachios and cacao nibs! Tahini is a great source of copper, calcium and magnesium and with no added sugar, this recipe is an amazing afternoon tea treat or a decadent dessert. Healthy indulgence at it’s best! Also great for kiddies – can be made nut free by omitting pistachios.
