When I gave up dairy earlier this year, there were some things that were easy to live without. Milk is a good example; there are so many alternatives of the nut, seed, and coconut varieties that I barely noticed the absence of cow’s milk in my day to day. Unfortunately, there were other things that were a lot harder to live without, like ice cream.
It’s just so damn good! And creamy… with the chocolate swirls and the peanut butter cups… oh boy. Yes, you can pay a premium price for some almond or cashew milk ice creams, and I did try them a few times. But, having stuck to the paleo diet for a few months, all the added sugar started to taste… gross? I know, I sound crazy. I switched to buying a pint of sorbet every now and then, but paleo desserts are hard to come by, expensive, and, let’s be honest, also very sweet. So I started looking for something that would be easy to make at home.
Two Ingredient Paleo Sorbet
2 cups frozen fruit of your choice (I used peaches here)
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbspn full fat coconut milk
Honey to taste (optional)
I tested this sorbet recipe out with peaches, but you could make it with any frozen fruit you want. If I’m being honest, I would not recommend using frozen peaches, just because the sweetness level can be a gamble depending on when they were picked and frozen. If you end up with some frozen fruit that isn’t as ripe/sweet as you want it, then you can always add honey to taste. Something like mango or cherry would probably be a safe bet.
- Toss the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Transfer to a container of your choosing and freeze overnight. I just used a bread pan and some tin foil, but you can also reuse a high quality ice cream container or buy something a little more specialized.
- If you’re feeling fancy, top with fresh fruit and herbs before eating. Or don’t. It’s not necessary.
And voila! I know, it’s super easy, which makes for a short blog post. But those are the best kinds of recipes because you spend less time reading and more time eating =)
