Paleo Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream Recipe #paleo

I love vanilla ice cream. My sister and my friends relentlessly tease me for being boring but the truth is that I love the simplicity of vanilla. I don’t want any of this mint chocolate oreo fudge surprise, that’s too much for me. However, by the time the end of the summer rolls around, even I am starting to get board of plain vanilla. That’s where our Paleo raspberry swirl ice cream comes in. This three ingredient ice cream is the perfect middle ground between overly sweet and complicated flavors and basic vanilla. With creamy coconut and a tart raspberry swirl, this ice cream strikes the right balance between simplicity and excitement. Just be sure you have someone on hand to share it with or you might be tempted to eat the whole batch yourself!

Our Top Tips for Dreamy Creamy Perfect Dairy-Free Ice Cream

  • Don’t Skimp on Fat – The naturally high fat content is coconut milk is what makes it the ideal dairy-free ice cream base. That fat content is essential to achieving a creamy texture so make sure you only use full-fat coconut milk in this recipe. If you can’t eat coconut and need to substitute, cashew milk or cream is your best bet for high fat content. 
  • Chill Out – A cold ice cream base is essential to proper freezing and even more important with non-dairy ice cream which tends to freeze unevenly creating unwanted ice crystals. Make sure you chill your base before churning for the creamiest texture. 
  • Layers of Love – For the best swirl, layer instead of swirling. As you transfer the ice cream from the machine to the storage container, alternate layers of ice cream and puree. This will ensure distinct ribbons of berry puree in the final product.

Three Small Changes to Customize This Recipe

  1. Add a pinch of salt to the ice cream base to heighten the flavor. 
  2. No raspberries, no problem! Use your favorite berry instead. Blackberries? Strawberries? You’re the chef! 
  3. Flavor the base to add even more excitement. Vanilla is classic but I love the unexpected pairing of cinnamon and raspberries.
