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!
