The Ultimate Guide to Paleo Ice Cream Recipes

Most people would say that these two passions are incompatible. Most people would say that it’s impossible to be lean, fit and healthy while indulging my sweet tooth with occasional bowls of sweet, creamy, awesome ice cream.

Fortunately for me, most people would be wrong. Fortunately for them, I have put together this list of my favourite Paleo Ice Cream Recipes….designed to satisfy the sweetest of sweet teeth while maintaining your Paleo street cred.

Paleo Chocolate “Peanut Butter” Ice Cream with Chocolate Shell

Chocolate “Peanut Butter” Ice Cream with Chocolate Shell

Combining coconut milk, natural cocoa powder, honey, cinnamon, nut butter, vanilla and a pinch of salt, this recipe (created by Juli at PaleOMG) if “off the hook” amazing. I guarantee that all your non-Paleo dinner guests will be licking their bowls clean and begging for seconds.

Paleo Banana Ice Cream

Amber from Paleo Kitchen Sync has done the impossible…

Employing just 4 ingredients…bananas, coconut milk, almond butter and chocolate chips (I use cocoa nibs instead), she has created one of the easiest (and tastiest) paleo ice cream recipes that you will ever find.

And considering that all you need to make it is a food processor or bad-ass blender (I use a Blend-Tec), you can make it whenever you want it…in under 5 minutes.

How’s that for awesome?

Paleo Pumpkin Ice Cream

Believe it or not, Vegans and Paleo eaters have a lot in common. Except for our Paleo desire to grill gigantic Fred Flintstone-esque steaks on the BBQ, our diets are very similar. And when it comes to dessert recipes, that similarity works in favor of us Paleos…thanks in part to this fantastic vegan recipe for Pumpkin Ice Cream from Tessa’s Domestic Diva website.

In addition to the traditional Paleo ingredients, Tessa’s recipe introduced me to lucuma powder….and am I glad that it did. The butterscotchy flavor of Lucuma powder takes this recipe from great to OMG that it fantastic!!! Believe me, you want to get your hands on some lucuma powder.

Paleo Banana Chai Ice Cream

Another easy-peasy blender recipe, Lauren’s Banana Chai recipe contains very few ingredients…

  • Bananas
  • Nut/Seed butter
  • Spices

…and is ready in less than 5 minutes.

Who can ask for more than that?

Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream

You will never, ever buy Häagen Dazs again after you have tried this Paleo version of strawberry ice cream.

This blend of coconut milk, real vanilla bean, eggs, honey, lemon juice, salt and luscious, fresh summer strawberries is far superior to any “luxury” brand of ice cream I have ever tried. After sampling this ice cream, you WILL be singing the praises of Angel & Meghan for coming up with this recipe.
