  1. I made this tonight as an Easter treat! So so SO good!! I used peanut butter instead of eggs and it was delicious. I know you use sunflower seed butter, which I’m interested in trying next time. (Huge fan of your paleo cook book, btw!!)

    • Tammy, thanks so much for your comment! This happens when the brand of salt called for in this recipe is not used, and also could be that your palate is adapted to sweet foods, rather than treats that are very low-carb :-)

  2. This icecream has been by far the best after putting it in the freezer. It is still creamy and easy to scoop. We really enjoyed this recipe! Thanks!

  3. I have made ice cream with eggs in the past, in the recipe, does the mixture need to blend on high for a certain amount of time before placing in the ice cream machine?

    • Maria, simply blend well in a high speed blender, then place in your ice cream machine and you’re good to go :-)

  4. Just made your ice cream recipe as printed with a couple of modifications. (Just added 2 Tbls Triple Cocoa Blend from King Arthur Flour and a 1/8 cup of chopped cocoa nibs with the chocolate chips). I combined the coconut sugar and eggs in the Vitamix first on high speed, then added the rest of the ingredients in the same order given. Used my KitchenAid Ice Cream maker as directed after the cream mixture had cooled in the refrigerator for a few hours. Twenty minutes later and we were enjoying this tasty ice cream. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Next time I’ll make it the same way that I did today and will add either an espresso powder or an orange oil with the cocoa and chocolate for a slightly different taste treat.

  5. I am assuming that a food processor, can take the place of a vitamix. Please give me a thumbs up on that. Alternatives to an ice cream maker may prove to be more difficult, and amazon will not deliver where I live. Suggestions please.

    • If you poke around on the web, I’m sure you can find ways of making ice cream with ziplock bags, rock salt, and ice. I did it a few summers ago. It’s fun, especially if you have kids around. I will make no claims to safety, though. The bags probably put carcinogens (BPA, …, …) in your food, so don’t make ice cream with them every day!

      • freeze the coconut milk in cubes. add frozen cubes, plus all other ingredients to food processor / thermomix and blitz until creamy. You could easily leave the egg out this way too. You will need a decent food processor though.

  6. Tried this last night.
    It is delicious!!!
    The most delicious coconut milk based ice-cream Iv’e made. It’s so creamy and fluffy!

  7. Love it! I made it last weekend for my 29th birthday (without the chocolates and honey instead of coconut sugar) great success!! I´ve been in Paleo for 2 months and I haven´t felt this great in years, I thought I had to give up ice cream but not anymore! Elana your website is great for special days :D thanks a lot! kisses from Madrid, Spain
