These are 9 of the best ever Paleo ice cream recipes. I love Paleo ice cream because it is also dairy-free and surprisingly delicious. Anybody that really knows me, knows that ice cream is my favorite food. I love it in almost any flavor. One of the reasons why I like Paleo recipes so much is because they are dairy-free. I am sensitive to dairy products so I try to avoid eating anything with dairy in it.
I currently do not eat a strict paleo diet – I just like to incorporate Paleo meals and foods into my daily diet. But since I am sensitive to dairy, Paleo is a great way for me to go. If you haven’t tried any Paleo ice cream recipes yet, you may be surprised how rich and creamy other kinds of milk can be and you may not even miss regular ice cream.
Ice cream is actually a really popular dessert here in Utah. Everyone I know and don’t know loves ice cream except for my mother. My mother never has liked ice cream very much. Come to find out, she is milk sensitive and she thinks that’s why she’s never liked it. Well, I have 9 answers for her, most of them made with coconut milk or coconut cream. Now, my Mom can enjoy ice cream and not have to worry about that yucky feeling she gets in her throat when she eats ice cream – and so can you.
After reading over all these Paleo ice cream recipes, I decided that once you figure out a base, then it seems like it would be fairly easy to add whatever ingredients you want to make any flavor of that you desire. Although I have never tried this – so it may be harder to do than I am anticipating. I guess I will need to start experimenting! Let me know if I’m right – and how your luck is with these or other recipes! Enjoy!

Paleo Ice Cream Recipes
1. Caramelized Pecan Banana Nice Cream Recipe – My Natural Family
This ice cream is made without any added sugar and it only has four ingredients so that means it’s pretty easy to make. I adore ice cream but my waistline sure doesn’t like it. But I can eat all I want of this because there is no sugar in it. If you’ve never tried brown butter before, you really should try it on this recipe. It gives it a deep nutty flavor, you could almost say it tastes caramelized.
2. Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream with Rhubarb Swirl – My Natural Family
Strawberries – Bananas – Rhubarb – Coconut Milk – Honey
This ice cream is made with coconut milk which makes it really creamy plus it’s dairy-free. The bananas and strawberries make it sweet and flavorful and the rhubarb gives it a little tangy kick. Five ingredients that are all good and natural makes it’s both easy to make and healthy. If you really don’t like rhubarb you could substitute another fruit that you think would be good. I would consider raspberries or peaches or extra strawberries.
3. Wendy’s Copycat Paleo Frosty – My Natural Family
Everyone loves Wendy’s Frostys, right? Well everyone I know does. The problem is that they definitely are NOT Paleo. All that processed STUFF. So I set out to make my own homemade copycat frosty recipe. These are yum yum yummy and easy to make. They are also great for anyone on a dairy-free diet.
4. Peach and Thyme Ice Cream – Paleo Spirit
This is made with an egg yolk custard for a more creamy and less icy product. (My grandmother always made her homemade ice cream with an egg custard base) The peaches are roasted which makes the skins fall off easily. It is best made with fresh peaches from an orchard or a Farmer’s Market. Peaches you buy in the store are never ripe enough and just don’t taste the same.
5. Lemon, Blueberry, & Banana Ice Cream – Worth Cooking
Don’t tell your kids it’s not really “ice cream”, they won’t know the difference. Debra’s didn’t know the difference. Actually, it’s just healthy ice cream sweetened with bananas and honey instead of tons of sugar. A large amount of vanilla is necessary, don’t skimp and the coconut oil is the key to the texture. It’s also healthy fat which is a good thing.
6. Coffee Caramel Chip Ice Cream – My Whole Food Life
Ice cream costs a fortune in the store plus you don’t know exactly what it’s made with. With homemade, you can make it with good wholesome ingredients. There is no added sugar here, it’s only sweetened with dates. An even bigger bonus is you can make up your own flavors. I think an ice cream maker is a good investment because it will pay for itself after only a few batches.
7. Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream – Living Healthy With Chocolate
It’s cool how when you mix cashews and lemon that it tastes similar to cheesecake. This is pretty creamy even if you keep it in the freezer for several days. The secret is to mix the eggs, the milk, and the arrowroot powder. The arrowroot powder keeps ice crystals from forming while it’s in the freezer.
8. Fudge Tracks Ice Cream – Allergy Free Alaska
This is creamy vanilla ice cream with a rich homemade hot fudge sauce and chopped almonds. There is a link to the hot fudge, so make sure you don’t miss it. This is so much more healthy and a whole lot cheaper than buying ice cream in the store. My family loves it and we could eat a whole store out if we tried. But we won’t, we’re going to make our own.
9. Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream – My Whole Food Life
Does anyone out there remember those cherry chocolates at Christmas time? Probably not. My grandma received them as gifts every Christmas season. I remember she didn’t like them and grandpa didn’t love them. So I always ate them for them. They could only be eaten one way. By putting the whole thing in my mouth at once. If you took a bite of it you ended up with the runny gooey center all over the place. This reminds me of them. The flavor of cherries and chocolate together is wonderful. It just the center of the chocolates no one liked. Pitting cherries isn’t a very fun task but a cherry pitting tool can be helpful. This is my favorite ice cream maker, it pays for itself after just a few uses.
