Ice Cream!

A friend recently gave me the Paleo by Season cookbook. I liked a couple of the recipes in here and thought I would share the best summer one!

I love ice cream. I rarely get any flavor other than coffee ice cream. Here's a fun recipe if you like to make your own...

Serves 5, cook time 25min. (plus overnight to cool).

  • 2 (13.5oz) cans unsweetened, whole fat coconut milk or coconut cream
  • 1/2 C. Honey
  • 1 T. flavorless grass-fed gelatin
  • 1 C. Dark Roast Coffee Grinds
In medium saucepot over medium-low heat, warm the milk slowly so it doesn't separate. Once warm (about 5 min.), add the honey while whisking.

Continue to heat until the coconut mixture is just below a simmer (180° F), about 10 minutes total. Add gelatin & whisk until dissolved.

Once at a good simmer, pour into a french press with coffee grinds. Stir well and allow to steep 8 minutes. Strain through a sieve over a bowl.

Allow to cool in fridge overnight. If mixture is solidified the next day, allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Pour into an ice cream maker and run for 25 minutes.

Happy Summer!
