Paleo Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love ice cream? This recipe has developed over time. Originally it was just frozen mashed bananas. I think it it is a little more sophisticated than that now. Its very tasty, easy, and paleo! If you have a person in your family that is lactose intolerant this is also a perfect alternative. The best bananas to use for this are the ones that have been sitting on your counter for awhile. The ones you’d normally turn into banana bread before you stopped eating grains.

Paleo Ice Cream

3 ripe bananas

2 cans of coconut milk

1 tbsp of honey (you can omit this and it is still perfectly sweet)

1tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup slivered almonds or your nut of choice

Mix and freeze. Yep it’s that easy

I brought this to a friend’s house for dessert and served it with some lovely papayas. The are a large tropical fruit. On the outside they look green and yellow and almost like a mutant pear. They weigh upwards of 3 lbs each. Inside they are a gorgeous pink/orange color and have seeds that you have to scrape out before you eat it. The flavor is a mild . T says it tastes like a strange cantaloupe and I’d have to agree. Go ahead and try one if you’ve never had it. I doubt yo u’ll be disappointed.
