The Whiter Shade of Pale (aka paleo ice cream)

It’s not EXACTLY paleo to even try preparing ice cream but since I’m not following EXACTLY paleo diet but more eating based on all the knowledge on what’s best for humans for their health (and longevity and performance, thanks Robb!) such as butter and some dark chocolate and red wine combined with the ancestral diet I just gave it a go. And it turned out delish! I haven’t had real ice cream in so long that I say: this is JUST like ice cream! Go nuts on the sugar festival!


Chunky Monkey goes paleo

  • 1 ripe fair trade banana
  • 4 dl of coconut cream
  • 1 pod of vanilla bean
  • 2 organic eggs
  • (cinnamon)

Peel the banana and put in in the blender together with coconut cream and eggs. Cut the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape the seeds into the mixture. Add some cinnamon if you like; I thought it made all the difference. Blend until thoroughly  mixed. Move into a large dish and set it it the freezer. After an hour or more start visiting your ice cream every now and then to mix it up: scrape the icy bits and mix them with the still softer mass. This will make the consistency more airy and icecreamy. Eat when the level of stickiness suits you. Garnish with nuts or seeds or fresh pineapple fried in butter! Or just eat plain.



Sweeter Shade of Pale (this one was too sweet for me but it may suit you)

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 dl coconut cream
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 vanilla pod

Prepare as above. Eat away!


  1. Helou! Mahtava blogi! Mites tän tai muiden testaamiesi jädevariaatioiden koostumus muuttuu vai muuttuuko, jos odottelee pakkasessa? Tuota herkkusatsia ei kerralla tule syötyä, joten olis kiva tietää, voiko jätskiä säilyttää muutaman päivän pakkasessa kuin tavan jäätelöä?:)
