Salted Caramel Paleo Ice Cream

Salted Caramel Paleo Ice Cream



  • 2 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon organic butter or ghee
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Ice Cream:


  1. In a small saucepan, heat caramel ingredients on low heat for 5 minutes until there is a low rolling boil around the edge of the mixture.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Place coconut milk, raw honey,  and vanilla beans in a medium saucepan over low heat. Whisk until everything is well-blended. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Whisk two egg yolks in a separate bowl. Temper the yolks by adding a small ladle of the ice cream mixture, stirring continuously so as to not “cook” the eggs.  Add a second ladle to egg mixture. Once combined, pour this back into the saucepan and stir.
  4. Add the caramel mixture to the ice cream mixture.  Stir until combined.  Refrigerate until completely cooled.
  5. Follow the directions on your ice cream maker as each one may be a little different. Once your main mixture is blended (about 30 minutes), transfer to a freezing container/lidded bowl.  Freeze.  After 30-45 minutes, stir mixture again. I think the best stage of “paleo ice cream” is after the first 1-3 hours of freezing.
  6. Enjoy!

    Damn, i really like salted caramel on ice cream….
    Savory weet willl tickle our taste buds politey,
    great job my friend….

  2. As soon as my whole30 is done I am making this! Now I need to start looking for an ice cream machine.

    • If you have a Kitchenaid, I highly suggest an ice cream maker attachment. If not, the others work well also. BTW, congrats on your Whole30 ~ it takes a LOT of determination (but I bet you are feeling great!). :-)

  3. Where do you find cocconut cream?

  4. LOVE the sound of this ice cream! I shared your recipe on my gfe Facebook page and a reader wanted to know if the coconut cream is the cream solidified from a can of full-fat coconut milk. Or are you talking about coconut cream concentrate? I want to know myself so I thought I'd ask.


    • Not sure…it is coconut cream in a can (read the back labels though…some brands add a lot of sugar, but there are several brands out there that stick to the basics). They also carry some at Trader Joes.

  5. My kids are looking over my shoulder and my 5 year old is yelling "Mom! That looks so good! Please make that!!!". We love your site and recipes!!Thanks for sharing and doing all you do!

  6. This was the best ice cream I've had. I are it yesterday for my birthday.

  7. Anything salted caramel sounds AMAZING!! We are total ice cream junkies. Can't wait to try this recipe!

  8. Can I use milk instead of coconut milk?

  9. Just made this and it is heavenly! Thank you! Later I may get crazy and add some homemade chocolate chip made with coconut oil, honey and arrowroot powder :)

  10. Oh, and raw cacao for the chips! Forgot to mention that ingredient :)

    One comment I do have about this recipe: I am not sure you need to sweeten the coconut milk for the ice cream and the caramel sauce. I think the sauce is a perfect sweetener for the ice cream. Just a thought. I was planning to make another batch with half the amount of honey.

  11. I've been missing ice cream so bad – I'll have to try this!

  12. Sounds delicious! How many servings does this make?

  13. Is coconut cream the same as what is at the top of the coconut milk can when the water separates?

  14. Eating it right now….YUM!!!!
