Icecream ;_;

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

Okay, I have basically cut out all sugars (aside from the occasional strawberry or something) for a while now. I am wondering if there is any way to make icecream that isn't so sugar heavy, but also not filled with artificial sweeteners. A lot of the paleo recipes look amazing. I also have a thing for green tea and mochi icecream.

 

I am kind of sad never being able to eat these things ever again. Is there an alternative? Also, will making allowances slow down my progress overall? I'm basically trying to get my bf% down to 20 while still gaining strength. I generally eat a mostly paleo diet, with the exception of rice on occasion. It's never more than a serving though.

Make it your self (if you are only worried about sugars if its fat content and calories overall ypu are worried about then this wont work)

Heres a simple recipe, whip a tub of full fat cream, add flavourings and fruit etc put in a tub and freeze. (I dont use scales or anything when I cook but this cant really fail.)

Yeah, making it myself seems like a good idea. I've found a few recipes that are actually pretty low sugar and use coconut milk.

Yes, don't eat too many calories, eat enough protein, and find room for ice cream.

Ding!

Love ice cream... wish I could find some that's a little lower-fat. The stuff in buckets at the grocery store tends to have slightly less fat, but not by much.

Fo real.  Sometimes you need to just eat the ice cream.  It's going to be okay.  When you die nobody is going to ask you "so how paleo were you?" and give you demerits for eating ice cream every now and then.

I'm not sure if this works for you because you said you don't eat any sugar except for a strawberry sometimes, but bananas make excellent ice cream. Take a banana and slice it to 1/2 inch, lay those slices out on a plate and put it in the freezer for ~2 hours. Then dump the slices into a blender/food processor and wait. It takes a little while but it will turn into a creamy icey consistency. If you wanted to add things you certainly could - honey, peanut butter, chocolate, all of the above.

 

But I have to agree with everyone else. Eat some damn ice cream. I'm currently plotting an ice cream adventure this weekend because I'll be moving down the street from a Mom and Pop ice cream place.

I'm going to try this frozen banana thing. Thanks everyone. I'm sure I'll be okay as long as I limit how much I have.

It's not an ice cream, but I love making granita.

 

Fresh squeezed orange juice, raspberries and ice in a blender until well mixed, and the ice is properly crushed, pour into a shallow cake pan and stick it in the freezer for a few hours.

 

Sure it's not creamy, but it is refreshing, delicious, and healthy!

Wow, everyone really wants us to all keep eating ice cream.

 

I'm going to take this as a sign and go get me some. It is more or less summer already, after all.
