Being that it is such a cold, rainy day in the midwest today, I figured what better day to post an ice cream recipe!?! Afterall, everyday is a good day for Paleo ice cream! Before I started following the Paleo lifestyle, ice cream was a special treat reserved for the rare indulgence. In contrast, this recipe uses real food ingredients and no added sugars and it is one of my quick and very easy, go-to snacks that I usually prepare daily. I've experimented with many different types of frozen fruits and I've found that bananas work best to create an ice cream texture. To freeze a banana for use in the ice cream, peel it, cut it in half, and then store it in the freezer until ready for use. Ingredients:
1 frozen medium or large banana
3/4 cup canned coconut milk (ensure that the ingredients contain coconut only or make homemade coconut milk)
Blueberries, raspberries, or nuts
1.) Place frozen banana and coconut milk in blender and blend together. If using a smaller banana, adjust the amount of coconut milk accordingly.
2.) Add optional toppings if desired.
And that's it! This is ridiculously easy, but so yummy! I hope you enjoy it!
