Coconut Banana Ice Cream (Paleo, SCD, GAPS-friendly)

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)

Optional topping:

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!
