Paleo Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Primal Salted Caramel Ice Cream

There is nothing like brainstorming with friends to help kick up your recipes a notch.  This idea for Paleo Salted Caramel Ice Cream came about when my BFF was here (also see the Paleo Apple Pie Ice Cream Recipe).   I knew that this was something I had to try to create, and this recipe is a winner. It is rich and creamy and reminds of of a “true” ice cream.

Now this recipe is perfect for me as is.  It has  a wonderful hint of caramel in the background of the recipe.    You might want to  double the caramel  so you can have some to drizzle all over your ice cream but again prepare from some serious sweetness.

Two notes: Buy a Candy thermometer so you can make sure the honey only gets to 250 degrees.  If the temp gets higher it’s going to mess up the recipe.  You can get one from the dollar store.  Also, I had to make this in two batches as my ice cream maker was too small to handle the entire recipe at once.

One amazing thing about the recipe is that the ice cream will not be rock hard when you pull it from the freezer.  The amount of honey in here makes it  very scoopable.   Ok, this will probably be my last ice cream recipe for the month as my waistline cannot take any more abuse.
