Don't forget in the summer, your blender is your best friend. For a now and then treat, IMO, it doesn't get much better than no-cheat paleo ice cream!!!
Nice. The looks like a fruit slushy more than ice cream. But it looks really nice.
We've found the best homemade ice cream to actually (gasp!) use a trace amount of sugar. Here's the recipe.
2 eggs, separated.
1/2 c sugar
Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add half the sugar and beat until stiff again.
Beat the egg yolks with 1T warm water and the other half of the sugar until frothy.
Whip the cream in a large bowl, stirring in the vanilla.
Fold (gently stir for 10s) all three mixtures together.
Freeze for 2-6 hours, stirring halfway through (it freezes from the outside in)
Serve straight from the freezer.

Your recipe looks great. We can't do dairy here though, and we don't do sugar, but yum!
I use a raw vegan one: banana, avocado, and then whatever you are using for flavoring (frozen berries, chocolate and nuts, whatever).
That looks awesome...but do you know a good substitution for Almond Milk? It's damned hard to find in these parts.

I'm eating way less fruit now, but man I know how delicious those frozen fruit ice cream blends are!!
I actually made coconut milk ice cream for the first time today and it was so easy. Can of coco milk, two eggs, temper it all and make a custard base, add whatever. We did instant coffee and cocoa powder with toasted hazelnuts.
BTW, does anyone know how to change your name on this forum?
I need some serious help. I've been Paleo since 2/27/12. NOT to lose weight but to detox, etc. Unfortunately I have lost some weight and I can't afford to lose more. I eat a lot of nut butter, meat, chicken, eggs, honey, avocado and loads of fruits and vegs. Help me put some weight back on, please.
