– *You can use canned coconut cream, or you do the following: Allow a can of full-fat coconut milk to settle for 1-3 days—set it in a stable, cool environment. Open the can and scoop the firm, creamy white part off the top—this is the coconut cream.
– **If you can’t find paleo ice cream, you can use 3/4 to 1 cup of my paleo Almond Joy Ice Cream, and leave out the coconut flakes, almonds and mini chocolate chips from this recipe.
