paleo apple pie ice cream

I’ve been putting my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker to use and thinking of fun ice cream recipes to make.  My BFF was in town and I was running ideas past her on what sounded tempting and her eyes lit up when I said Apple Pie Ice Cream.   I knew I had to give it a whirl and I’m torn between being happy about another tasty recipe and the fact that I can’t just eat the whole dang container.  I know, these problems are pretty minor when compared to some, but I’m suffering over here.

If you want a nice crunchy add-on to the recipe, sprinkle on some of my Cinnamon Square Crunch Cereal Recipe.  OMG, It’s freaking amazing with this recipe and gives it the “crust” to complete the recipe.    The Little attacked this  like he was trying out for a food competition so I figured it was a winner.

    I’m thinking hard about trying the Paleo diet. I just don’t know if I can give up grains…. I love bread. And, Kelly, can you eat air-popped popcorn on a Paleo diet? Because that would definitely be a deal breaker for me. 🙂

      Corn is grain so it’s on the do not eat list. HOWEVER, I doubt you can find one guru/blogger on the diet who doesn’t cheat including myself. If you can stick to a grain-free diet 90% of the time, you’ll see a huge difference in your health. If that means having popcorn every now and then for you to stay on the diet, I don’t see a problem with it.

        Okay, that’s good to know. I would really have to have my air-popped popcorn at least once a week. If I knew I could reward myself with that, I might be able to do it. I’m still doing research and trying to get my husband on board. 🙂

    You scream, I scream….you know the rest LOL. Looks and sounds great. I’ve never tried an apple pie flavor but since I love ice cream on my apple pie I figure it has got to be good.

    Apple pie and vanilla ice cream! I love that your recipe calls for tart apples. I bet it would be great with a little caramel drizzled over it.

  • July 24, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Oh man this looks so good! I love apples.

  • July 24, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Oh, how scrumptious! 🙂

  • July 26, 2013 at 2:25 am

    That looks awesome! I love apple pie & ice cream, especially together, so I totally have to try this.

  • July 26, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    That looks great! I have been pondering using coconut milk as the base for ice cream. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  • July 26, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    This looks so amazing! I love how you put pumpkin pie spice in it!

  • July 28, 2013 at 5:01 am

    I just had apple pie the other day and this sounds divine!

  • July 28, 2013 at 7:06 am

    This looked amazing and easy but it was a total flop for us. Made exactly according to the recipe, and after 15 mins in our ice cream maker it was still liquid. 2 hours of freezer time later and it’s still not ice cream. Also can’t really taste the apple pie, mostly just coconut-ty! Not sure what we did wrong… 🙁

    • September 24, 2014 at 6:54 am

      Did you use full fat coconut milk? That seems strange that it’s still not frozen after that long.

  • October 26, 2014 at 1:03 pm

    I preordered your cook book on amazon is it available Nov 2014? I can’t find it again HELP new to paelo diet but your r recipes are great love the notes

    I love your recipes, but sadly for us in Australia, we don’t have many of the ingredients that you use, eg. Pumpkin Pie spice. What would be a substitute for this?
