Paleo Ice Cream

August 27, 2013 3 min read

It seems like I’m finding more and more ways to make the treats that we love and have eaten all our lives.  Sometimes it seems a little overboard to me, mixing and trying all kinds of different flours and sugars and other primal ingredients until you make what was once junk food into a paleo/primal food.  Don’t get me wrong, I like to have a so-called ‘treat’ once in a while, but I think it can also create a stumbling block for some.  It’s awesome that these folks are showing how eating clean like this can be fun and not boring like I’ve heard many people say, however it can also make a newbie a little overwhelmed.  They start down the paleo road, changing their foods and think they have to come up with all these elaborate dishes with all these new ingredients, like almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum…things they might not have ever used in their lives.  I say keep it simple and make small changes in the beginning, so that you don’t feel that added extra pressure or feel overwhelmed.  Keeping it simple has made it easy and more economical for my family and I, thank goodness.  However, it’s now time to turn it up a notch and I’ve been introducing 1 new thing a week, to keep my husband and kids excited about eating this way.  Sometimes it’s a dessert type item and other times it’s a meal.

One recipe I found was how to make paleo/primal ice cream with very little ingredients.  It’s super easy and simple, just the way I like it and a treat I can feel good about giving to my kids!  I found the original recipe from the Food Babe, but there are many others out there.  If you don’t know about her, you should check her out.  She researches companies and restaurants and is great at digging deep and finding out what’s really in the products you know and love.   So, here it is:

Main ingredients:

Coconut milk, 13.5 oz can – full fat, organic (check the ingredients, always to make sure you’re not getting any extras)

3 frozen bananas – peel them first, and then freeze them (you can use maple syrup or honey if you prefer)

2 tsp organic vanilla extract

3 cups frozen strawberries or fresh (if frozen, let them thaw slightly, then blend them to make little chunks)

All you do is blend together the coconut milk, frozen bananas and the vanilla extract.  Put it in the ice cream maker for about 15 minutes, and then add in the strawberries.  Let it blend in the strawberries and churn for about 10 more minutes and it’s done.

You could probably add in just about any fruit you like, not just strawberries.  I also made chocolate chunk ice cream by adding 2 tablespoons of cocoa and then adding in dark chocolate at the end.  I took a dark chocolate candy bar (70% or more) and cut it into little slivers.  The Food Babe had recipes for mint chocolate chip, just substitute the vanilla for peppermint extract and add dark chocolate, and pistachio almond, just add vanilla extract and pistachios and almond slivers.  They were really good too!  I think you can add just about anything to make a flavor you really love.  Finally an ice cream you can feel good about eating!

Let me know if you try it and how you like it.  Enjoy!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
