Paleo strawberry ice cream is so yummy! Bursting with fresh fruit, it’s one summer treat that can’t be missed.

Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream - a healthier way to do ice cream. Only 4 ingredients and super delicious!

One of my favorite things about summer is homemade ice cream. I have already made several different ice cream recipes this summer, including my favorite pistachio with chocolate chunks and a homemade orange sherbet that my kids couldn’t stop raving about.

But, you know, I don’t exactly need to be eating real dairy ice cream every day. It makes me so sluggish and blah the following day every time. So yeah, that’s where this Paleo Strawberry Ice Cream came in.

Paleo ice cream is actually really easy. Like, even easier than regular homemade ice cream because the coconut milk just doesn’t seem to scorch as easily as heavy cream.

Tell me I’m not the only one that always scorches the heavy cream.

So paleo ice cream is just coconut milk (the canned kind, not the kind in the carton in the refrigerated section) with honey and egg yolks. You cook that down until it’s nice and thick and then chill it overnight. After that, you blend it up with your fresh strawberries and then freeze it in your ice cream maker.

Homemade Strawberry Milk - make a homemade version of your childhood fave! So easy and so delicious!

A few weeks ago my oldest kid came home from a sleepover and was all, “GUESS WHAT I HAD FOR DINNER LAST NIGHT! CHICKEN POT PIE!”

And as someone who, in recent history, spent several hours making Ina’s chicken pot pie only to be told, “Eww, this is gross!”, put my hands on my hips and said, “You don’t like chicken pot pie.”

To which he said, “Yeah, but this one was from a box. I made it in the microwave!”

And then I kicked him out of the house and haven’t heard from him since.

Why are kids jerks? I mean, really? A boxed pot pie? Over Ina’s?

Really?!

Well guys, it’s time to start another week. Hopefully you at least got to sleep a little late today. And I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

We spent our Valentine’s morning at the park. The husband took the kids to the playground and I took the dogs to the dog park, like we usually do. And then we spent a couple hours texting each other photos of the kids and the dogs and others people’s dogs. #crazydoglady

I always forget how awkward the dog park is. Like, I’m bad at small talk to begin with but small talk while also picking up poop and politely looking away when someone’s dog tries to get frisky? 

The worst.

We went to our fave Mexican place for dinner and then I forced my husband to go to REI to get new running shoes because he’s been complaining about his since before this last deployment. A full year. Of hating his running shoes. And telling me about it. 

So he got new shoes and then we got Dairy Queen because I haaaad to try the Red Velvet Blizzard before it went away. 

It was pretty perfect. 

After all the Mexican food and the mojitos and the ice cream and the entire box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates, I need a small detox. But I cannot detox without at least a few treats in there and this Paleo Strawberry Crumble is amazing for situations like that.

There’s nothing bad in it and it’s absolutely scrumptious. I can’t get enough coconut flour so I used that in the topping and then some shredded coconut. The top gets all crunchy and the strawberries get juicy and delicious. 

Also, why are the strawberries so good so early in the year? We can’t get enough!

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Pudding Cups #SnackPackMixIns #ad

We are just over two weeks away from Valentine’s Day so I figured it was time to share some easy to make desserts!

I not-so-secretly love Valentine’s Day because it’s an excuse to put up every sparkly heart decoration I have. Which thrills my husband, I’m sure. I also love it because I feel like it’s a free pass to eat chocolate. And what’s better than that?

So for my super simple Valentine’s Day dessert, I’ve got these fun Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Pudding Cups.

How cute would these be for a class party? 

I picked up a pack of vanilla and a pack of chocolate Snack Pack Pudding Cups at Walmart, along with some strawberries, Reddi Wip, and really cute Valentine’s Day sprinkles. 

The Snack Packs have a new Easy Open Lid which made it really simple for the kiddos to help me. They also contain the same amount of calcium as an 8 ounce glass of milk so it’s a treat your kids will love and you’ll feel good about letting them have it. 

Like I said, these are super simple to make. You just dip the strawberries in a Snack Pack pudding cup (I used chocolate but you can use whatever flavor you like) and then let them set in the freezer for a couple hours. Then you you put a chocolate-covered strawberry on top of the rest of your Snack Pack puddings cups, top with Reddi Wip, and sprinkle with your favorite pink heart sprinkles!

I did some strawberries with sprinkles and some without. You could dip half the strawberry in a chocolate Snack Pack and then the other half in a vanilla. There are so many ways to customize this cute and kid-friendly Valentine’s Day dessert!
