Paleo Recipe - Dairy Free White Chocolate Ice Cream

Dairy Free White Chocolate Ice Cream

The urge to eat ice cream, whether you have a sweet tooth or not, can be just too strong to ignore. This Paleo dessert is simply adored by adults and kids alike and can be enjoyed no matter what the weather is. However, a lot of people who are into Paleo or want to go Paleo often mistaken that there is no substitute for this dessert. This one of my favorite Paleo recipes will prove that this is nothing but a misconception and Paleo ice cream is definitely possible and even delicious.

What is a good meal if no dessert is served? What the perfect dessert than a cold, heavenly scoop of ice cream. But wait, you’re on a Paleo diet? Does it mean goodbye to desserts and ice cream? If you are going to base the basics of Paleo, sweets are not generally accepted, besides honey, fruits, and dark chocolate. This is because too much sugar is found in other sweeteners. Plus they contain too many carbohydrates which, if not burned, can cause fat deposits. These sweeteners also cause hyperglycemia and may result in diabetes and other related diseases.

But Paleo experts use several healthy and Paleo approved sweeteners. This is good news for those of us with a sweet tooth and kids. Even the much-loved ice cream is a dessert that one can enjoy when following a Paleo lifestyle. Although alternatives are used, such as the ingredients used in the recipe below, you will find that it is pretty much on a par or even better to ice cream where commercial ingredients have been used. Most of these alternative ingredients are not only healthy but also easy to find and cost a lot less.

Paleo Diet - Ice Cream

The best part about this recipe is, of course, the use of white chocolate along with the coconut milk, which is a much healthier alternative. You’ll often find that when it comes to the Paleo diet the use of dairy products is something that isn’t approved. So finding an alternative we can use, is a must for many of us. Coconut milk fits right in as an alternative to regular milk since it almost has the same texture and taste, but is healthier (not to mention the color!). There are other uses for coconut milk, but let’s focus on this satisfying dessert that you will definitely choose over regular ice cream every time.

Paleo Recipe For Making Your Own Coconut Milk

Ingredients:

7/8 Cup (210 ml) Dry Unsweetened Coconut

1 ½ Cups (355 ml) Water

How to Make Coconut Milk:

  • You will need a colander, bowl, cheesecloth, blender and kettle for making coconut oil. Line the colander with the cheesecloth. You need to have at least four thicknesses of cheesecloth on the colander. Set the lined colander aside.
  • Heat water in a kettle but do not bring it to a boil.
  • On a blender, combine the coconut and the 1 cup of the hot water. Blend for at least 2-3 minutes.
  • Place the colander over the bowl and pour the blended coconut mixture into the lined colander. Twist the cheesecloth, letting the coconut milk pour in the bowl.
  • Put the coconut pulp back to the blender and remaining 1/2 cup hot water. Blend for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Repeat the procedure of straining and twisting of the cheesecloth.
  • This will make about 1 cup of coconut milk.

Now you can make coconut milk and do it in batches to use for later. You can just put the remaining coconut milk into a refrigerator safe container with a good seal. This will give you enough coconut milk to use for a few more days. You can use the coconut milk in other Paleo recipes besides desserts (adding to a curry would be a great idea!). This Paleo ice cream recipe will surely be a big hit and a family favorite especially when it is made using fresh Paleo coconut milk.
