One of the best ways to use summer berries is to mix them with healthy fats from cream or coconut milk and make some ice-cream. This recipe is easy to follow and doesn't require an ice-cream maker. Inspired by this deliciously looking paleo ice-cream from Sarah of Well and Full, I used frozen berries to speed up the process and only stirred it once throughout the freezing to make it smooth. If you want to skip the churning altogether, simply pour the mixture in popsicle molds. For ice-cream recipes that require churning, I use this ice-cream maker from Cuisinart.

Tips for a dairy-free option: To “cream” the coconut milk, simply place the can in the fridge overnight. Next day, open, spoon out the solidified coconut milk and discard the liquids. Do not shake before opening the can. One 400 gram can will yield about 200 grams of coconut cream.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi could you place all the ingredients once blended into an ice cream machine?

Reply

Yes, you can do that!

What is a substitute for  MCT oil,. Please. Thanks

Reply

I think you could use macadamia nut oil or avocado oil instead. Coconut oil might not be the best option as it solidifies below room temperature.

Reply

Thank you very much. I will try it.

Reply

Is the MCT oil absolutely necessary in this recipe?  Is there a substitute? It appears to be very costly. Thank you

Reply

Hi Diane, you can skip the MCT oil in this recipe. It's good to use it in recipes that require churning (it helps the ice-cream stay soft) but you can skip it or use vegetable glycerine instead.

This recipe is just completely unbelievable.  INSANELY tasty.  Thank so much!

Reply

Thank you!

If i exclude the erythritol n any sweetener, would it affect  the texture or consistency?

Reply

No it won't affect the texture - the sweetener is optional 😊

Hooray--a no-churn ice cream!  Now can you come up with a chocolate version?

Reply

I will! I actually have a chocolate version that will be posted in about 2-3 weeks. There are about 4 no-churn ways to make it and I'll include the tips for all of them 😊
