Black bean ice cream is a Central American-inspired treat, and it's the perfect combination of flavorful black beans and creamy sugar. To make a quart of this rich dessert, you'll need half-and-half, a cup black beans and plenty of brown sugar, white sugar and powdered cinnamon. Chill the concoction in your freezer, and once it's frozen, add a splash of dark rum to taste. Enjoy the sweet flavor of this homemade treat -- and feel good that you're getting a healthy dose of fiber and protein, too.
