    I'm not a complete sugarphobe but commercial brands use way too much for me. The most acceptable brand I've found is So Delicious no sugar/coconut/mint chip.

    Co-signing the DIY suggestions above. An ice cream maker is a good investment.
    My basic recipe:
    1 can coconut milk
    2 egg yolks
    1 envelope gelatin powder
    2 tbsp vodka
    sweetener of choice
    all other embellishments: vanilla, peppermint, cocoa, coffee, fruit, nut butter

    Heat until everything dissolves then blend
    Things like chopped nuts or cacao nibs/grated chocolate can be added a few minutes before the machine finishes.

          Dave Asprey's Bulletproof "Get Some" ice cream is something you make at home and he posts the recipe for FREE

          IT's also in his Upgraded Chef paleo cook book.


          It is non-dairy, and full fat, it's not a CHEAT! It's a great way to put some fat in your diet and adhere mostly to your plan. I love the stuff and it tastes nearly as good as any other ice cream. We've gotten really good at putting big chocolate chunks in it....

          Recipe: Creamy Coconut “Get Some” Ice Cream (Paleo friendly)


          I love it. Wow I must be lucky cause the Twins ice cream is in my grocers freezer at the WHole Foods local competitor. (read: cheaper)

              Just because its organic, doesn't make it healthy. It still has 20g of carbs (18g of sugar) per a 85g serving.

                    The topic title is asking for healthy ice cream. Any product that has 21g of sugar per 100g is not healthy. It may not be unhealthy though.

                      Honey has 82g of sugar per 100g, and is healthy. I don't understand.

                        healthy is probably not the best term! emotive and open to personal interpretation.

                            Just an FYI, if you buy Breyers, a lot of the flavors now feature HFCS and more additives. It used to just be milk, sugar and cream. To be fair, they have removed the "natural" tag on some flavors. Haagen Daz is the same way.

                            I used to make banana ice cream- just process frozen banana chunks. YUM!

                              Ive been making my own, wack strawberrys from local farmer in the blender, add in vanilla pod seeds, sweetner of choice (in my case Xylitol or maple surup) let set for 20-30 min(doing it this way helps to enhance the natural flavor/ sweetness of the strawberrys)
                              Pour in ice cream maker and add equal amount of double cream. Leave untill magic ice cream is made

                              Peach and banana is really good to
                              Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
