In the spring and summer months, ice cream is a staple in our home. Who am I kidding? Ice cream is a staple in our home year round. I LOVE ICE CREAM! A lot.

We are feeling the heat in Northern California. Hot, sticky, stubborn heat. This makes me want to relax all day and sip on my favorite homemade lemonade + eat lots and lots of refreshing, delectable, cooling ice cream. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?

Why Make Ice Cream at Home? 

1. It’s good for you! Seriously, it is.
Ice cream is one of my favorite nourishing snacks. Conventional store-bought ice cream is loaded with way too many ingredients + things that your body doesn’t recognize. Homemade ice cream is nourishing + loaded with good fat … healthy fats are essential for our bodies.

2. You can choose what ingredients to use … like coconut milk + organic maple syrup. 

3. Ice Cream is awesome. The End. 

Enough said … enjoy the ice cream!

It’s so easy and here are 5 Tips for Perfect Homemade Ice Cream. My passion for homemade ice cream and frozen treats is exactly why I wrote my eBook, The Splendid Scoop.

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Dairy-Free, Autoimmune Paleo
Serves: 8
  1. Add strawberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla + coconut milk to the blender.
  2. Blend on medium setting until smooth and combined. No strawberry chunks should remain.
  3. Prepare ice cream maker. Turn ice cream maker on and pour strawberry mixture into the ice cream maker. Mix according to your ice cream maker's instructions.
  4. Ice cream will start to have a "soft serve" texture {mine takes about 15-20 minutes}. This is my family's favorite way to eat it. If you prefer it to be a little firmer, use a wooden spoon to transfer ice cream to a large airtight container and place it in the freezer. Make sure to lick the spoon when you're done!
  5. Yield: Makes about 1 quart of ice cream.

Want to Learn How to Make Your Own Ice Cream Perfection At Home?

I’ve got you covered in my best-selling eBook, The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats: Delicious and Easy Dairy-Free Recipes, Plus Tips and Tricks for Homemade Ice Cream Perfection!

When the weather gets warm, nothing is more delicious than a bowl of cold ice cream or a delicious frozen treat. But, when you’re on a restricted diet, finding treats that are suitable for your needs can be tricky. Plus, what happens when you want to make ice cream, but don’t own an ice cream maker? Can you still make tasty treats without all the special equipment?

Yes! You can!

That is why I created The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook! I, myself, am on a restricted diet for health reasons and when the weather starts warming up over 65 F, I start to get cranky. ? I am definitely a cool weather gal and one way to keep me sane and satisfied during the height of summer is knowing that I can make something delicious, at home, using healthy ingredients that fit my lifestyle.

All of the recipes in this book are dairy, grain, and gluten free. They can easily be modified for the autoimmune protocol as well, making them extra special for those on super restricted diets.

In The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook, You Will Learn:

  • Why making your own ice cream and frozen treats at home is better than buying them at the store (even the organic ones!).
  • Tips and tricks for homemade ice cream success.
  • How to make ice cream without an ice cream maker (it’s easier than you think!).
  • Delicious dairy-free recipes the whole family will love (recipes are also gluten and free and can easily be adapted for the autoimmune protocol as well).
  • Extensive resource suggestions for real food, wellness, and beyond.

Don’t let another summer or special occasion pass you by. No longer will you have to watch your friends and family indulge on their favorite frozen treats while you sit on the sidelines due to your dietary restrictions.

Now you can enjoy creamy, delicious, and allergen-friendly frozen treats once again with The Splendid Scoop.
