I’ve played around with paleo ice cream recipes many times and as delicious as they are, they just don’t cut it sometimes. If I’m having ice cream, I like a small ratio of ice cream to a huge ratio of mix ins. I want cookies, candy, potato chips, pretzels, caramel, sprinkles, all of it.
None of which is paleo. At all. Not even a little bit.
But I’ve found that with popsicles, I’m a little more forgiving. Especially if they are fudge pops. Because I love a fudge pop. I’ve never met a fudge pop that I didn’t immediately fall in love with.
These Paleo Fudge Pops will change your life. They are creamy and rich and you can feel good about eating them since they are made from avocado, banana, and unsweetened cocoa powder. All of which is good for you.
Healthy fats from the avocado, lots of good stuff in the bananas, and antioxidants from the cocoa powder. I used a tiny bit of honey to sweeten the fudge pops but if you want, you can eliminate it completely or just add honey to taste.
They are absolutely delicious and I can even trick my 3 year old into eating one. And he normally won’t touch an avocado for anything.
I’ve found that these keep really well, too. With most paleo ice cream, you have to eat it within a few days or it becomes rock hard in the freezer. These stayed creamy for several weeks.
Which is good, because we’ve got a lot of summer left.

You guys probably had no idea that I was so obsessed with fresh corn. And yeah, this ice cream starts with fresh corn.
I never talk about my love of fresh summer corn here because typically we just grill it, spray it with butter, and sprinkle some salt on it. Easy easy and so good. But there’s no need for a recipe when you’re doing that.
My love of corn is coming out this week.
Back when I lived in Alabama, I made frequent trips to the flea market because they had (probably still do?) a stand that did roasted corn and then they had, like, this bar of different seasonings you could sprinkle on it.
Omg, you guys. My favorite thing in the world. Last time we went home I told my husband we had to get some before we left and he was all, “You really want to spend your time at home at the flea market?”
Uhhh yeah, eat corn, look for Pyrex. Does he know me at all?
If you are into sweet corn like me, you are going to be obsessed with this ice cream. So the ice cream itself is just corn flavored. But then at the end, you mix in some caramel sauce. And then you can top it with some real caramel corn if you like a little crunch in your ice cream like me.

Happy Wednesday, y’all! I’ve got the PERFECT treat for this amazingly warm weather we’ve been having recently.
Ice Cream Sundae Bar!
I put this together over the weekend after my kids had been outside playing with their friends for, like, 8 hours. I went to Walmart for all my toppings and the star of the show, DREYER’S Frozen Custard.
I have always loved frozen custard and I’m pretty stoked that it’s now easily accessible thanks to DREYER’S. It is extra thick and creamy which is exactly why I love it. Plus it’s made with fresh milk and has no artificial colors or flavors!
DREYER’S Frozen Custard comes in so many fun flavors, too! I picked up Old Fashioned Vanilla (the sundae at the very bottom of the post) and Strawberry Shortcake (directly below) – I’m a vanilla person and my husband is all about the Strawberry Shortcake. And oh my gosh, the pieces of shortcake and the strawberry swirls in Strawberry Shortcake are absolutely divine!
Other flavors of DREYER’S Frozen Custard include: Chocolate Malt, Mint Cookies N’ Cream, and Peanut Butter Pie (next on my list!).
Putting together an ice cream sundae bar is so easy and it is so much fun for the whole family! You can basically use whatever you want but I think you should have a good combo of sauces, like hot fudge, and then some candy, like peanut butter cups, and then you have to have cherries! What’s a sundae without a cherry on top?!
Walmart is doing in store DREYER’S Frozen Custard demos across the country March 26 – 29 and you can find out if your local Walmart is participating by checking this spreadsheet. Also, be sure to check out the DREYER’S Facebook page and Pinterest page.
