Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream

Paleo, Vegan, Minimal Ingredients, Allergy Friendly – Mid-Summer Family Frozen Treat

Hi, Mama! I’ve noticed a lot of companies making Paleo ice cream lately {about time, right?}. In theory, this is awesome as we actually have a healthy option in the frozen department, but my wallet says otherwise. I’m sure you agree with me that purchasing an eight dollar pint of Paleo ice cream seems a little outlandish. So for two dollars, I made a Paleo Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream in the luxury of my own home.

Homemade Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream that is Paleo AND easy to make. Great for a family dessert or kicking the sweet tooth to the curb.

I avoided dragging my kids to the grocery store, loading and unloading them from their car seats in Wisconsin’s unpredictable weather, AND I saved a bunch of money {and my sanity- well, whats left of it}.

I’ll be honest, I’ve bought a pint of eight dollar Paleo ice cream before. Yes, it was good and totally hit the spot to tame my chocolate craving during that ‘time of the month,’ but it tastes nothing like a homemade Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream.

Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream – The story behind the recipe

Jump to Recipe

Just as I get cravings during ‘that time of the month,’ my husband also gets them after a long stressful day at work. If you ask me, everyone should end the day with a frozen Paleo treat. I think there would be a lot more happier people walking around.

Anyways, our ice cream maker broke, I entirely blame my children, but I’m all for honesty here, and I am the guilty one of dropping it on the floor. Oops.

Of course, my husband requested ice cream after his stressful workday, and without having to throw myself under the bus, I had to come up with a new way to prepare and freeze his evening treat.

Instead of throwing {wow, I do a lot of throwing} everything into the ice cream maker I whipped my ingredients in a large bowl and placed the ready product into a freezer safe glass dish and crossed my fingers.

Well, it worked.

Unfortunately, the freeze time took a little longer than we were willing to stay up, so we enjoyed our Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream the following day. As an apology, I made my husband some Mini Paleo Chocolate Cups instead.

Moral of the story: the best things in life are worth waiting for… like the toilet.
