Toward the end of the Super Bowl why not enjoy a bowl of Cherry Dark Chocolate Chip Paleo Ice Cream! The recipe for this ice cream is super easy and not to overpowering or sicking sweet. As a follower of the Paleo diet it is sometimes tough to find a dessert that great and satisfied people of all tastes.
Recipe for Cherry Dark Chocolate Chip Paleo Ice Cream:
What you need:
1 can organic full fat coconut milk
1 10 ounce bag frozen organic dark sweet cherries, I used whole foods organic blend
2 to 3T agave nectar
1/2 tsp pure almond extract
In a blender or food processor, combine all of the above items on high until smooth. Pour into your pre-frozen ice cream maker and let churn for about 15 to 20 minutes.
In a glass measuring cup, combine 1/3 cup dark chocolate (I used chips...you could use some of your secret chocolate stash in your cupboard, back there behind the good china or wherever you hide it...) and 1 T butter (you could use coconut oil I would guess but I always use butter when it comes to making my fudge sauce).
Microwave for about 30 seconds until chocolate and butter mix smoothly. Remove from microwave. Add 1 tsp dark cocoa powder. Stir. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1 to 2 tsp of almond milk. Stir until smooth. *(Can be dairy-free/vegan if you skip the butter and use coconut oil instead...)
By the spoonful, add semi-cooled chocolate mixture to the churning ice cream so it swirls in and becomes "chips," if you will. If it's too hot, the mixture won't become chips but will mix right in...make sure you add the chocolate when your ice cream is almost done and set up...
Enjoy this amazing dessert!
