What is the most paleo ice cream for sale out there? There are plenty of recipes, but sometimes I'd really just like some ice cream from the store, or an ice cream shop, that is not mostly high fructose corn syrup. 

What are my options? Dairy is okay.

I see ice cream makers at thrift shops all the time.  It's worth getting one, because then you can make your own delicious ice "cream" with ingredients that you control.  Here's my recipe for coffee ice "cream" based on a recipe from Peter Attia's blog:

3 cups of coconut milk

2 egg yolks (raw or pasteurized) or eliminate the egg yolks and make this with 3 1/2 cups of coconut milk

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk

2 tsp.. of vanilla extract

1-3 tbsp. of espresso powder  or instant coffee crystals (to taste)

Optional:  up to 3 tbsp sweetener of choice

Mix ingredients well and chill.  Place in ice cream maker and churn for about 20 to 25 minutes. 

Pack tightly in a container and freeze until hard.

The closest store-bought ice cream with paleo restrictions I've seen is Trader Joe's coconut milk ice cream. They have chocolate and strawberry flavors, not sure if there are more. Also vegan friendly

Personally, I like Talenti gelato.  They have some unhealthy things in it, but I like the richness of it.  I only need like a scoop of it and it satisfies any ice cream craving I have.


Haagen Daz is supposed to only have 5 ingredients in it, but I can't vouch for the quality of those ingredients.

Best I've seen is something like So Delicious - they're made from either almond or coconut.  But they still do have sugar, and sometimes other objectional stuff, so read the label closely.


Your best choice, as always, is of course to get an ice cream maker and make your own.

Yeah, the So Delicious ones do have objectionable stuff. I'm not opposed to a dairy-based ice cream if I'm only eating it once in a long while.

I don't care about ice cream enough to get an ice cream maker. I might make some alternative some time, but I don't have much time.

What's the cleanest regular ice cream out there?
