Paleo Ice Cream!

Before I found out about my intolerance to dairy... (Before the Whole 30 and 9 months of paleo...)
 I was addicted to ice cream. No, really. I would eat it all the time. My fridge always had Ben & Jerry's Creme Brulee on hand... Now... one tablespoon- and I don't even know if I should go on...

Anyhow. It upsets my stomach. There. I said it. I still get the cravings though! Of course there are dairy-free alternatives... but they aren't very wallet-friendly. So, I searched and searched until I found one out there and tweaked it a little. Here are the results!

all ingredients - add bananas of course haha
I didn't want to get my Ninja out and I really wanted a personal serving size- so I used my hamilton beach personal blender (can find at walmart/target $15)

i want some now! 

i couldn't wait. the top was perfect. but the bottom was still runny. I will freeze it better next time but it was still ridiculously tasty. 

Hope this satisfies that random sweet tooth you have! This will definitely be made again in this house. I wish it could stay frozen to keep on hand, but something about the inconvenience is a GOOD thing, cuz I would eat this all the time!


  1. This looks so yummy! I may have to make it soon. Banana and almond butter is one of my favorite flavor combos. Have you ever tried coconut Bliss? It's a sugar-free (uses agave), dairy free (uses coconut milk) ice cream that is super creamy and delicious. My favorites are the Vanilla Island and Pineapple Coconut. My sister-in-law got me hooked. Not sure if it's paleo-friendly, but I think so!

  2. Love this! I make a similar concoction... I keep peeled and frozen bananas in the freezer for my sweet cravings! They blend up nicely and you don't have to wait as long for the ice cream to freeze! I've added some coffee I had left in my coffee pot too! Mmmmmm paleo treats!
