I added some more banana pieces. Here you also add the lemon juice. If it gets too "lemony" add some extra condensed milk (but remember that the meringue that you're going to add later is sweet).

Heat up the sugar in an iron pan. Add the pecans and the bicarbonate (makes the pecans easier to chew). Allow the pecans to caramellize. This goes fast so taking pictures is hard!

The finished product. Much better than any candy! Can of course be eaten on its own, but goes perfectly with any kind of ice cream. If you cannot find pecans you can use walnuts instead.

If you don't use an ice cream maker; this is what you do after it has been in the freezer: mix the ice cream in a food processor or with a hand mixer shortly before serving it.

If it's too hard when taking it out of the freezer add 3 tablespoons of water.

Sprinkle the pecans on top of the ice cream!
