I’m new to the SCD diet and found your site. I see that you have agave as a sweetener but I thought that was not allowed? I’m struggling to sort through recipes to find which are SCD appropriate.
Thanks everything looks so delicious.
Tricia, thanks for your comment! Here’s a link to my SCD Recipes Page for you:
Is there any way to make this without ice cream maker?
Crystal, here’s one of my ice cream recipes that does not require an ice cream maker:

My Vitamix cookbook has a recipe using 8 oz of frozen fruit and 8 oz of milk or cream of your choosing along with the other ingredients listed here. Process on High using the plunger to push the frozen fruit into the blades. You will have ice cream without the need for an ice cream freezer, ready to serve. I have tried several different nut milks, and cow’s milk or cream. The cow’s milk makes much creamer product. The nut milks work very nicely, but a little more ‘icey’.
