    I like (love!)
    1/4 cup coconut milk, chilled
    1 frozen banana
    some chocolate flavor of some type. little vanillla etc if you are fancy.
    Blend in a food processor till its a soft-serve consistency and then love it.
    I just made this and it was great! Very easy and tasty.

    I've experimented with this all summer......... Nope - no weight loss. Today I threw out my lactaid pills so I will have no choice but to say NO to ice cream from this day forward!

    Sure, but you will break poor ice cream's heart. Why would you cheat on ice cream? What the heck did ice cream do to you?

    Wait and See. If you stall in your weight loss -- then you'll have to re=assess. If you are losing weight while indulging in your ice-cream, then continue on. Email us when you stall -- then there's no mercy!

    And thanks for the rest of info
    2 cups whole milk
    2 cups heavy cream
    1 cup 1% kefir
    8 egg yolks
    1 packet gelatin (7 grams)

    That is my base for custard. If you can't get kefir, you can use half whole milk/half heavy cream in place, or just use another cup of whole milk. I find the kefir adds just a slight tang without imparting a "frozen yogurt" taste, which I'm not too fond of. It's almost like cultured butter versus regular butter - it adds volume and compromises nothing. Adding another cup of heavy cream makes it too rich IMO.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Those Clemmy's are tasty & mildly addictive, as I used to justify consuming the entire container in 1 sitting due to it's full fat, no sugar content. No guilt, no worries... But I haven't bought any Clemmy's since last summer, as I've tried to tighten up my diet & exercise more. I still eat a LOT of food & calories, don't count carbs or calories & things are goin' really good...

    I'm not sure if an ice cream maker is really needed, as plopping the ingredients into the blender & setting up for a time in the freezer, or just adding ice to the blender to make a gelato type frozen dessert works for me. However, I'm sure the ice cream makers are nice(r).

    Seriously? You people think that if someone is primal but eats 1 cup of ice cream a week they wont lose weight? This is honestly the most strict diet ever created then. If you cant eat a cup of ice cream a week then this diet is probably bad for your mental health.

    Honestly, if my brain kinda sorta understands how all this works, a cup of ice cream once a week is better than a little tiny off primal once a day. IOW not all 80/20s are equal.

    But do track yourself as mentioned above because we're all different.

    Another thing you might try is to plan for it, i.e., do very low carbs the day before and the day after, this way your average carbs per day doesn't get too out of wack.

    You are right if you're talking about overweight people. A lot of people on here are chasing a 6 pack in middle age though. For those people, some of them, it might make a dif.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Life's too short, honestly. Just eat some ice cream. One cup in particular is nothing. Hell, have two.
