Strawberries and “Cream” Paleo Ice Cream

Any other ice cream lovers out there? I love it, especially during the summer when all I want is something cool to eat. I have so many memories associated with ice cream, from Braum’s dates with Isaac, to making it in a machine with my mom, to going to the local peach stand near my grandparents’ for some fresh peach ice cream. It’s always been one of my favorite treats.. especially when it’s loaded up with chocolate (anyone else??).

After doing Whole30 and deciding to now stick to a more paleo friendly diet, I had to make some changes when it came to my favorite guilty pleasures. As much as I love the brownie crumble and fudge filled bowl of creaminess, I know that’s not exactly the best choice for me. So instead of getting grumpy, or settling for a sub par alternative, I decided to try my hand at some homemade ice cream that I could eat without feeling guilty! 

The result? Amazing.

It was creamy, full of flavor, and made with ingredients I trust and love. It’s dairy free (depending on the protein powder* you use), uses natural sweetener, and is chock full of fresh fruit. It’s also a great source of good-for-you fats, and everything added is made with ingredients you can pronounce. So basically, it is THE perfect paleo ice cream! You’re welcome. ;)
This paleo ice cream uses canned coconut milk and coconut cream. I just used the solid parts of both ingredients, and drained out the liquid. This way your ice cream isn’t super icy, but rather creamy and delicious.

*I use the Vanilla Perfect Fit protein powder, which is vegan and has no artificial sweeteners. Make sure you read your labels and ingredients list to ensure the protein powder you use isn’t full of artificial sweeteners, sugars, powdered milk, etc. so it’s still paleo friendly and good for you!

    This is beautiful! I am a big fan of all the chocolate too, but sometimes in the summer, I crave the fruity flavors. This is perfect!
