Okay, I’m warning you right now. This recipe will become a staple in your Paleo diet and you will have un-explained cravings for this yummy treat. It’s true! This recipe is completely Paleo, non-processed, and ready to be gobbled up by children and parents alike. In fact, parents might have a hard time sharing.
After a long day at work, commuting home, and giving a catching lesson I was worn out. The last thing I wanted to think about what figuring out something to eat. Plus I was past the point of hunger and really, really wanted ice-cream. Ice-Cream is the one dessert item I know I could not live without. Normally I would allow myself a little wiggle room to sneak a cheat meal in once a week, and ice cream or mexican food are usually my go-to cheats! Mmmm mexican food! But for the next two months I have committed to strict Paleo for Lurong Living Paleo Challenge. My fiance and I are extremely excited about it and have already seen results. We are also extremely competitive, and know if one of us cheats before the other then we will never hear the end of it.
So, to keep me on the straight and narrow, I decided to find a healthier Paleo Ice-Cream option and oh my did I find one. The Lurong Challenge member site includes recipe searches and more, and I had always heard about Paleo versions of ice-cream. Finally I took the time to try it.
Too Good to Be True Paleo Ice Cream Recipe:
2 frozed bananas
1 spoonful of almond butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
1/2 Cup slivered almonds
In a blender, add your coconut milk, Banana, vanilla, and almond butter. Mix until smooth. Scoop evenly into bowls and sprinkle with almond slivers. Tip: If your ice-cream is too watery and not holding together like gilato then add more frozen banana as needed and blend until smooth.
Think of this as your base ice-cream, like a vanilla. From here you can add honey, or berries as you wish. Have a craving for chocolate. Add a tablespoon raw cocoa or unsweetened cocoa powder to your blender.
Enjoy!!!! And don’t forget to share!!!!
