    I did a version of this today with toasted pecans etc… Simple and delicious; my daughters both loved it!

    This is so yummy and easy!!! I added cinnamon and vanilla, it is delicious!

  3. I know it’s done with coconut milk…and this might be a stupid question, but how strong is the coconut flavor? or can you not taste it?

    • Neely Quinn

      Lilly – I can’t really taste it, especially because you put other things in it usually. I’ve never had a non-Paleo friend eat it and say, “gross, this tastes like coconut.” They’re actually usually surprised that it doesn’t taste like coconut, and that it tastes so much like dairy ice cream.

  4. I was trying to “pin” this but it wont pin it comes up as 504? Anyway…Love this recipe, trying it today!! Thank you!

  5. Love the recipe cause it is so simple. Tried it with cocoa powder and agave nectar and semi-sweet chocolate chips…even though I could have left those out. Still looking for no sugar chocolate chips…

    Made this tonight using coconut sap. It was delicious and very sweet. I got a pretty strong coconut flavor from it which isn’t necessarily bad. I plan to experiment using honey and agave nectar over the next few tries.

  7. Can you subsitute lactos free milk?

    • Neely Quinn

      Jim – Lactose is often not the problem for people, and lactose free milk usually comes from conventionally raised (bacteria-laden) cows that don’t provide very nutrient dense milk. I’d just avoid the milk altogether for the first month, then add it back in if you want (from a pastured source) and see how your body responds.

    If you don’t have an ice cream maker is there another option

    • Neely Quinn

      Nicole – Yes, you can make ice cream the old fashioned way with ice and salt and the ice cream ingredients. It just takes longer, but I’ve done it. It’s kind of fun, actually :) Just google “make ice cream” and there are zillions of recipes.

    how about raw cream

  11. Ulrike

    I just made this with 1 tin of coconut milk, some pancake syrup I wanted to use up, and 3 or 4 peach halves from a tin. Absolutely delicious!

    Just made a batch with honey and it’s pretty good. What about using raw goats milk? Is that paleo enough ?

    • Michael – Dairy (in any form from any animal) is something that should be taken on an individual basis. If you can tolerate goat’s milk, and you KNOW you can tolerate it because you’ve experimented with not eating it for a while and then reintroduced it successfully, then go ahead and eat it. But definitely experiment with any kind of dairy so you know.
