Where are my ice cream lovers at? Drop whatever you’re doing and check out these amazingly healthy and delicious paleo ice creams!
The heat is coming on heavy down here in the south like it does every August. And just like every other year I’m turning off my oven and searching for ways to enjoy dessert without baking.
Of course, the obvious choice is ice cream. I mean, even in the dead of winter ice cream would still be the obvious choice. But sadly most store-bought ice creams are loaded with unhealthy additives, sugars, gluten, dairy, and more.
Pardon me while I go cry a river for all the ice creams I’ve loved and lost since going sugar and dairy-free…
Banana Cookie Dough Ice Cream from Recipes to Nourish
Ok, I’m back, and ready to get down to business. The business of making ice cream I can fully enjoy, guilt-free and reaction-free, that is!
Since I’m pretty sure everyone loves ice cream as much as I do (which is almost as much as my husband does), I’ve rounded up a few healthy and delicious paleo ice creams for y’all to enjoy. Even if it’s the dead of winter…
Some of these delicious paleo ice creams are wonderfully no-churn. For those I just blend the ingredients in my blender and freeze. Others need a little churning action, and I use my Kitchen Aide attachment for that. If you don’t have either of those things, there are still some you can make anyway!
30+ Healthy and delicious paleo ice creams.
All 20+ of these amazing recipes are completely dairy-free and only sweetened with stevia, dates, or honey! There are even options where no additional sweetener is required! So there’s no need to feel guilty enjoying these treats, and no need to go out and buy fancy sweeteners either.
While a few of the recipes do call for an ice cream maker (I use this Kitchen Aid attachment and LOVE IT), there are also a good bunch of no-churn recipes, as well! For those you will need a good blender (I love my Blendtec), and for all recipes you’ll need a freezer-safe container to chill your creamy goodness in. Any stainless steel or ceramic bowl will work fine, though shallower is better, ’cause it will freeze sooner.
