One of my biggest weaknesses is chocolate. This probably started off during childhood…
I lived a few miles away from the Cadbury’s chocolate factory (which some claim is similar to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory), and ended up eating quite a lot of Cadbury’s chocolates. (The original story by Roald Dahl was partially inspired by Cadbury’s.)
But this post is not about me or my chocolates. This post is all about Devin Plaut and his drive to make delicious Paleo chocolate truffles.
I use chocolate and cocoa/cacao powder in many of my recipes, so this question of whether there’s any difference between them has come up several times. This post will explain the answer.
Giving up ice cream when I went Paleo was tough, but dairy simply didn’t make me feel good. And so ice cream had to go…or so I thought at first.
What I didn’t realize back then were all the amazing Paleo ice cream recipes I could make at home and enjoy without feeling ill afterwards.
So, what do Paleo ice cream recipes contain if it doesn’t contain dairy?
The most popular “creamers” for Paleo ice cream recipes are coconut milk or coconut cream and bananas. Avocados, soaked cashews, and egg yolks are some other options. Personally, I really love the Paleo ice cream recipes with bananas in them – they’re really easy and fast to make, and taste delicious (you often don’t even need to add any additional sweeteners!).
Can I eat Paleo Ice Cream Every Day?
Like all Paleo desserts, I personally don’t think they should be eaten every day (most of these Paleo ice cream recipes still contain pretty high amounts of sugars, even if they’re not refined sugars!).
So, when should you make Paleo ice cream recipes? These delicious recipes are perfect for those really bad days when you really want to cheat or for when you want to make something for a special occasion or treat. Or if you’re a huge ice cream fanatic and don’t think you could become full Paleo because of your ice cream addiction, then try switching to Paleo ice cream and gradually reducing the amount you eat of it.
What’s in this giant list of ice cream recipes?
There are quite a lot of recipes here, so I’ve grouped them into different categories to help you search for the one that you want to make.
First, there’s my top 3 Paleo Ice Cream Recipes, then there’s the top Paleo Chocolate Ice Cream Recipes, followed by the top Primal Chocolate Ice Cream Recipes (the Primal recipes contain dairy), the top Recipes That Don’t Require an Ice Cream Maker (because I know most people don’t have an ice cream maker), the top Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream Recipes, and lastly a list of other Paleo and Primal ice cream recipes that I thought you might enjoy.
And in case you’re wondering, I didn’t get to taste test all 66 of these ice cream recipes!
One of the things I’ve missed since going Paleo is ice cream, especially during the summer months when you see people eating it everywhere!
I actually first gave up real ice cream when I found out I was lactose intolerant 6 years ago (it took me a while to believe it, despite the fact that pretty much all Asians are lactose intolerant!). It was at that point that I discovered lactose-free ice creams (where they put lactase into the ice cream to help us lactose-intolerant people digest it) – it still had dairy in it though.
Then later, I discovered coconut ice cream (I started seeing them sold in Whole Foods), although I have to admit the first few brands I tried put me off them. However, I turned back to coconut ice cream after trying it at Lick in Austin (pictured below). Their coconut ice cream was so good that I had to go back twice during my trip!
So, what do you do if you don’t live in Austin like me?
Make your own Paleo ice cream!
I’ve been living in Asia for the past month, and I’m absolutely loving the huge variety of fruits and vegetables here. I keep discovering new ones every day. So, I thought I would start featuring a few of the ones that I’ve discovered.
I’m starting with Custard Apples (aka the Buddha’s Head Fruit) because they have such a weird name!
Despite their weird name, they’re actually pretty common in many warmish climates (although this trip was the first time I had come across them). According to the all-knowing internet, you can find custard apples in countries like Spain, Peru, Taiwan, Australia, China, and many more.
Summer is near for many of us in the Northern hemisphere! So, I wanted to share with you this really really easy Paleo sorbet recipe for cooling off. You don’t need an ice cream maker for this recipe – just a blender will do. And it takes just 5 minutes to make.
