Finally we have caught a break in the heatwave! I’m not sure about the weather where you guys are, but here in New Hampshire we were in a crazy heat/humidity wave the past couple weeks and I was scrambling to find a low carb, paleo treat to cool down with. Thankfully I found one and just when I did the heatwave broke, go figure. But alas! You can still enjoy this ice cream paleo goodness even without crazy temperatures. And the best part it, you don’t even have to turn on your oven! Just mix, press, pour, and freeze.

I hope you guys enjoy these frozen paleo treats as much as I do. They are pretty low-carb as far as desserts go, are a great source of healthy fats, and they don’t use any sweeteners which is a big bonus in my book! See below for nutrition information.
