I can’t emphasize enough that eating clean does not have to equate to horrible sacrifice.  That includes ice cream!  I scream, you scream, Paleo screams for ice cream!

The base of ice cream is typically made with heavy cream, milk, sugar and egg.  So basically egg is the only thing Paleo- some major switches need to be made.  Rest assured, with the help of coconut and natural sugars, it’s actually very easy!

 

Paleo Coffee Ice Cream

27 fl oz. coconut milk

¼ cup coconut cream (you can buy this separately or skim it from the top of the coconut milk can)

½ cup maple syrup

½ cup coconut sugar

2 tbsp instant coffee

3 egg yolks

Toppings: Add any toppings such as dark chocolate chips, cookies, etc.  I used Cappello’s chocolate chip cookies

 

  1. Keep the ice cream mixing bowl in your freezer.  This is really important as it won’t become ice cream unless the bowl is as cold as possible
  2. In a sauce pot, combine all ingredients (except toppings) and continue stirring until mixture comes to a low boil
  3. Set the mixture aside and let cool completely
  4. When the mixture is completely cool, remove the ice cream mixing bowl from the freezer and assemble
  5. Slowly pour the mixture into the machine.  Make sure not to pour all the way to the top or it will overflow.  You may have some mixture left over
  6. Let churn for 15-20 minutes
  7. When the ice cream begins to resemble soft serve or frozen yogurt add in your toppings and let the ice cream machine thoroughly combine into the mixture for a couple minutes
  8. Place the ice cream mixture into the freezer to set
