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?
