Dairy Free Strawberry Lime Ice Cream (Paleo)

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

If I had to pick one dessert on my blog that I suggest you make as soon as possible it would be this one..oh and this one too according to my husband who just reminded me I have not made them in a few weeks.

As I mentioned yesterday I have decided to start eating Paleo. This means no dairy. What would the world come to if there was no ice cream? It would be a sad place. I don't care what diet your on ice cream needs to be allowed. The good news is, if you are cutting dairy out of your diet or you just want to have a healthier option to regular ice cream this is the solution since it is made with coconut milk.

This recipe is my own creation and right up to the point of tasting it I had no idea how it would turn out. My two year old was anxiously waiting for the whole 20 minutes while it was churning it the ice cream maker, so thankfully it was a huge success. I am not a fan of meltdowns.

What you will need:
  • 14 strawberries
  • 1 can of full fat coconut milk (14oz)
  • 1 tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbs of honey (I used raw)
  • 2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
Directions:
  1. Mash the strawberries up in a medium size bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mix them together.
  2. Place your ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker. Follow the directions of your ice cream maker and watch the magic happen.
  3. Enjoy!
*If you do not have an ice cream maker you can still make this, although the end result will not be as creamy. Full instructions can be found here.
Heaven in a little bowl. This was creamy, refreshing and had just the right amount of sweetness. It reminded me of a delicious sherbet but without all that extra processed sugar and milk.

Thank you for this and the post you shared yesterday. Because of you I am 100% going Paleo! I have no clue how you find the time to make all this yummy stuff with two young kidos, but I too guess I can find time if I want it bad enough.

I'm loving your Paleo recipes. I just checked some old ones. They look really yummy and healthy. I should try them soon, right after I check it with my nutritionist because I am on a special diet myself.

Oh, yum. Pinned!

Oh man, this looks awesome.

Angi said...

This looks so good! Now I need to buy an ice cream maker...my husband and I have been 99% dairy free (and vegan) for about a year now, and ice cream is definitely in the top 5 things I miss!!

Thanks for the recipe!

Alexa said...

Haha. I am not a fan of tantrums. Me neither! And the ice cream looks really good. I bet the coconut milk is a fantastic addition!

Urban Wife said...

Lucky me, I've got all the ingredients. I'm making this tomorrow. Thanks for sharing. :)

Hi, this looks so yummy. Just wondering what size your coconut milk can is? We are in Australia so our standard one might be different to yours. Can't wait to make this!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Michael-I used a 14oz size can :)

Catherine said...

Lindsay, what brand of coconut milk do you use?

Urban Wife said...

Verdict: super tasty & light! A little icy but that's because I didn't use an ice cream maker.

Michael Vrettas said...

Thanks, it is our standard 400ml can. Will be making this today now!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Catherine- I use THAI Organic Coconut Milk :)

I literally just asked my husband this week if he had seen any good Paleo recipes for ice cream - this recipe looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!

panda said...

mmm! looks great!

I just found your blog on Pinterest because of a craft that was pinned, and I love it!!! I was also super excited to see that you are starting to eat paleo. I eat that way and it has helped me immensely with a lot of health issues (I have multiple autoimmune diseases). Seeing that you have Type 1 Diabetes, Paleo is an excellent way of managing that and may even help you to heal as it seems to be a good method for healing autoimmune-related issues. I highly recommend reading "Practical Paleo" by Diane Sanfilippo - http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Paleo-Customized-Whole-Foods-Lifestyle/dp/1936608758/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344967266&sr=8-1&keywords=practical+paleo. She has a whole section on autoimmune diseases (including type 1 diabetes) and how to customize paleo for those issues. So excited to start reading your blog on a regular basis. Blessings to you! Congratulations on your new son!

Lindsay, what kind of ice cream maker machine do you have for this recipe? Will this make 1 quart? Thanks.

Jen said...

I made this tonight and my two kids (1 and 3) loved it. Are you sure about those measurements? 2 TBS of vanilla or is that supposed to be 2 tsp? Anyway, I made it with 1 TBS of vanilla and 2 TBS of honey. It was very tasty. I might cut back on the lime next time, but that is just personal preference. Thanks for all of the great recipes. :)

Nikki said...

Is it supposed to be two tablespoons of vanilla or teaspoons? I'm not sure what I might have done wrong here but it was very very wrong.

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

It is supposed to be 2 tsp! So sorry for the typo! Fixed. Although if you did use 2 tbs it should still be really tasty--just extra vanilla-y! ;)

Bec said...

Do you know how much (or how many servings) it makes?

Yum! I made this today. I finally used the ice cream maker I bought at Aldi's last year. It was so easy, and amazingly delicious!! I had to stop myself from eating all of it before anyone else got home :P

Staci said...

I just made it and put it in these:

Thanks!

Planning to make this tomorrow and I am just wondering how much it makes. I have never made ice cream before but received on for Mother's Day. It can hold 2 quarts, can I double the recipe? or will it be enough as is?

I made this tonight. I can't really taste the lime or the coconut. My husband said it tastes just like store bought strawberry ice cream if it didn't have any sugar in it. Next time, I'll probably add a bit more honey as the sweetness was lacking.

Adrianne Gentleman said...

It's winter her in Australia at the moment so I'm making it with frozen raspberries instead of strawberries, looking forward to the result

Marissa Seath said...

I tried this recipe a few weeks ago and its delicious. I am looking forward to summer so I can make more. Thanks :)

Frodosdojo said...

If you don't have an ice cream maker, just use frozen strawberries and blend everything together.

Hilary said...

I just made this and all I taste is salt...and I triple checked that I was putting in the right amount because I thought adding salt to ice cream was odd. What is the reason for adding salt? Thinking Ill skip that ingredient next time :)
