I stopped eating dairy several years ago after a Whole30 taught me that my gut doesn't like it. We recently discovered that our four-year-old daughter has a dairy allergy but dearly loved milk products, so this book seemed like a natural purchase for us for this hot Texas summer.
I've tried numerous "Paleo" or coconut-milk-based ice creams from other websites and sources. The ice creams I have tried from this book are hands-down the BEST. My husband, who used to sit in his chair with a half-gallon of commercial dairy ice cream and a spoon, even loves what I've made from this book. The ice creams are creamy and satisfying without any overwhelming honey or coconut flavors that I've found in other recipes, and little to no graininess. I love that the ice creams I've made are date-sweetened, and I think the combination of coconut and almond milks is smart!
These ice creams are, for the most part, simple to make. I can whip up some vanilla ice cream base in seriously under five minutes. I doubt I'll be butchering my own young coconuts to make coconut cream any time soon, but even the ice creams with several steps, like Rocky Road for which I had to make my own marshmallow fluff, have easy-to-follow directions.
I'm so happy I went ahead and bought this book so we could enjoy it all summer, and my dairy-loving but intolerant family are thrilled too. I look forward to diving into MORE books by Kelly!!
This book gives you a few tips, but I learned more on the Internet. 1. Add a tablespoon or two of coconut oil to these recipes, and just for good measure, I throw in a tablespoon or two of vodka (chocolate vodka for chocolate ice cream--peach schnapps for peach ice cream.) The main thing is these keep the ice cream from getting rock-hard. Also, something I did with the purchased coconut-chocolate ice cream, was I put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. When using the Cuisinart ice cream maker, you MUST put the bowl base in the freezer for 24 hours for good results.The chocolate ice cream is the best I've tasted so far.
While most of us agree treats should be limited to special occasions, a sampling of Kelly’s recipes shows how wonderful ice cream can be. Even more so when it’s good for you. Five chapters of recipes cover Classic Flavors (think Vanilla, Chocolate, Pumpkin, Rum Raisin and Swiss Almond), Coffee and Tea Ice Cream such as Earl Grey and Jasmine Tea, Cake and Cookies (Frozen Mint Chocolate Whoopie Pies), Yogurt, Pops and Sherbet, and finally, Sauces and Sprinkled Toppings.
Kelly’s recipes call for a blender and an ice cream machine. My first foray into the world of homemade Paleo ice cream began with the Vanilla Ice Cream recipe on page 28. At the time I did not own an ice cream machine and found the result tasty but a bit on the icy side, so I also recommend these recipes be made using an electric ice cream machine. I’ve since had excellent results with the Cuisinart ICE-21, a moderate-cost machine. While Vanilla is my favorite ice cream flavor, I highly recommend the Blueberry Lavender (page 34) and the coffee ice cream (page 76).
The recipes are easy to follow and are accompanied by wonderful photos. If you love ice cream but want a healthful alternative to the sugar-sweetened, full dairy version, Kelly Broznya’s book of exciting recipes is for you. 4.5 stars.
