The Ultimate Guide to Paleo Ice Cream Recipes

Paleo Sweet & Salty Frozen Custard

You are going to love the Paleo Parents for coming up with this recipe. The combination of sweet, salty and creamy will have your taste-buds doing handsprings…and the combination of butternut squash, coconut milk, eggs and cinnamon will have your healthy-body-buds jumping for joy.

Sure, this recipe takes a lot more time and effort to prepare, but once you’ve tasted it, you will have no choice but to agree with me that roasting the squash in the oven is well worth the time and effort. Thanks Paleo Mom & Dad.

Paleo Apricot Ice Cream

I am a HUGE fan of apricots…and I am an even HUGER fan of homemade Paleo Apricot Ice Cream. And thanks to this recipe, I am now a HUGEST fan of Carrie Vitt and her Deliciously Organic website.

And I am willing to bet that after you try a bowl of this heavenly concoction on a sweltering summer day, you will be a HUGEST fan too.

Paleo Fig & Coconut Ice Cream

Q.  What do you get when you combine figs, lemon zest, lemon juice, coconut sugar and coconut cream?

A.  Not much until you pop it into your ice cream maker and churn it into a sophisticated and truly delicious bowl of Fig and Coconut Ice Cream.

Paleo Butter Pecan Caramel Ice Cream


Butter pecan is one of my all-time flavours of ice cream. When I was a kid, I felt grown-up ordering a scoop of butter pecan when all of the other kids were getting chocolate or some other “kid-approved” flavour. With this recipe, the inclusion of arrowroot powder produces an ultra-creamy texture that blends really well with the crunchy/meaty texture of the pecans.

When you add that awesomeness to the fatty gorgeousness of full fat coconut milk and a whole egg, you end up with a great big bowl of chilly nostalgia that took me right back to memories of getting a scoop at Baskin-Robbins with my parents and little brother. For that, I have to give thanks to Adriana and her Living Healthy with Chocolate website.

Paleo Cherry Garcia Ice Cream

Once again, I have to thank one of our Raw/Vegan cousins for this recipe. Betty Rawker (awesome name btw) has put together a paleo-friendly version of the Ben & Jerry classic flavour – Cherry Garcia…and I for one think that this healthier version really rawks. (sorry for the pun).

The combination of coconut milk, dark cherries and paleo-friendly chocolate chunks is fantastic!!! You won’t be disappointed.
