This dairy and refined sugar free Paleo "ice cream" is super easy, requires no ice cream machine, and can be ready in under 5 minutes. It also happens to be delicious, so we hope you try it out!
Note: This recipe does require a couple ingredients that are either frozen or refrigerated:
When your bananas start to turn brown, peel them, break them up and toss them in the freezer! They make a great addition to smoothies, and are excellent to just have on hand for other yummy snacks, like this one.
We also recommend always keeping a can of coconut milk or coconut cream in your fridge, just in case you need it for a recipe that requires it to be chilled (lots of recipes do). You can purchase coconut cream at Trader Joes, or you can make your own by leaving a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight, then gently skimming the cream off the top. (The water and cream seperate when refrigerated).
EASY PALEO CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM
1 or 2 frozen Bananas
Half a can of cold Coconut Cream
2 Spoonfuls of Cocoa Powder
1 Spoonful of Almond Butter
Two spoonfuls of Cacao Nibs (optional)
A small squeeze of Honey (optional). Toss all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. (It should be the consistency of soft serve ice cream). Top with cacao nibs, paleo whipped cream, fresh berries, or whatever your heart desires! Enjoy!
Note: Because there are no preservatives in this ice cream, it will freeze rock solid. Leave it on the counter for 20 minutes, or place it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to soften it up!
