Paleo Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Recipe

Sharing is caring!

 

Over the past few months, my husband and I have been the Whole 30 challenge and then transitioning into the Paleo Diet. We have been eating healthy dinners like this Beetroot Soup and healthy tuna salad recipe for dinner. The thing that I have been missing the most is something sweet. This Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is not only vegan but also compliant with the Paleo Diet. You can learn all about how to eat paleo diet here.

  • This Paleo Chili Recipe is the perfect meal to cook for those warm summer days. It can be served cold or hot. The spiciness from the chili actually helps you stay cool during hot days by raising your body temperature slightly. Fun fact that I learned recently about cultures that use spicy foods to keep cool.

Paleo Ice Cream

To make Paleo Ice Cream, I use Coconut Milk from the can and Frozen Bananas. Usually, when the bananas are getting spotty brown and soft, I slice them up and freeze them for use later in a Paleo Ice Cream recipe like this one. I never let a banana go to waste anymore. Bananas in my house always become Nice Cream in my household.

Paleo Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Ingredients

2 Frozen Bananas

Benefits of Peppermint Oil

The health benefits of peppermint essential oil are related to digestive health and help relieve stomach aches. It also freshens bad breath with its antimicrobial properties. It is my most purchased essential oil because I diffuse it while I work to improves mental focus and boost energy. When my muscles ache, I rub the peppermint oil on my muscles. Initially, I mixed the peppermint essential oil with lotion to dilute it, now I have worked up a tolerance. Make sure to avoid touching sensitive areas like your eyes after using peppermint oil.

Vegan Chocolate Chips

I have found a brand of Vegan Chocolate Chips that are made with three ingredients: cane sugar, unsweetened chocolate, and cocoa butter. That’s it. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips are semisweet, miniature, non-GMO and free of gluten, nuts, dairy, and soy.This means that they are fine for the Paleo Diet. (get them in some grocery stores or here on Amazon)

Liquid chlorophyll benefits

Liquid Chlorophyll has a ton of health benefits including boosting immunity, helps with digestion, and reduces inflammation by pairing with free radicals. It can also help fight cancer! Woot! I use it in the morning in my water to make it less boring. It has a slight minty flavor and acts a green food coloring for mint ice cream. The best liquid chlorophyll that I have found is the one I subscribe to on Amazon. It comes every other month because that is how quickly I blow through a bottle.

Canned Coconut Milk

The only way to get this paleo ice cream right is by using canned coconut milk. The best Paleo and Whole 30 Compliant Coconut Milk: Trader Joe’s Coconut Milk (available at Trader Joe’s), Whole Foods 360 Brand Coconut Milk (available at Whole Foods), Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk (available for purchase on Amazon), Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk (available for purchase on Amazon), and A Taste of Thai Coconut Milk (it can be found at various grocery stores).

Canned Coconut Milk

Canned Coconut Milk is what you are looking for when you are making homemade ice cream in the food processor or blender. If you are the store trying to figure out what canned coconut milk to get, make sure to avoid sulfates. Avoid Potassium Metabisulfite. It is a common ingredient in canned coconut milk and is not Whole30compliant. Don’t Be Afraid of Guar Guam. It is allowed on Whole30, but it is better if you can find a brand without any guar gum.

 

Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk

Canned coconut milk is extremely healthy. One cup of canned coconut milk has more than 10 percent of your daily value of iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. It’s also high in fat, but it contains a type of fat that provides health benefits. Learn more about Coconut Milk health benefits here on SF Gate site.

Here are some yummy recipes that we have made with Coconut Milk:
