hee-hee. i also like the name 'paleo pops'
well if you are craving ice cream there are lots of solutions or strategies. either go with it the 'paleo way' or indulge and move on, or just eliminate it... which is hard for me. with so many great people in our group, i'm sure something will come up. i thought that coconut cream idea sounded great!
i also have a little dish that i whip up in times that i have a craving that comes in handy if you wanted to keep it 'paleo friendly' but still satisfy the creaminess. you could do this:
- get some berries and freeze them, and a banana for extra sweetness if you want
- get some dried fruit and sliced nuts of choice, almonds for me!
- and some creamed coconut milk, the thick stuff
- if you like cinnamon and nutmeg, here's a perfect time to add some!
Blend the frozen fruits in a blender or processor until mushy, and a bit chuncky. Combine that with the dried fruit & nuts, and then combine with the coconut cream and spices, if using them. Put the mixture into a freezer proof container and chill until its a nice, ice creamy consistency. Paleo Heaven!!!
I'm wanting this right now....
Also, i'm so happy as well for this group. i feel like i stumbled on some secret gems (awe, shucks!)
