Because my daughter has a dairy intolerance, I also made two batches of paleo ice cream. A Pure Vanilla Ice Cream, and a Berry Swirl Ice Cream.  You can find the recipes here in Frozen Paleo by Pamela Braun.  The Berry Swirl Ice Cream is oh! sooo good!

Last summer, we invited our neighborhood friends over for an ice cream social.  I spent the 2 weeks prior to the event making batches of homemade ice cream. I used This KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment.  It’s very easy to use.  Simply freeze the bowl for 15 hours prior to use and it’s ready to go. I also hand-dipped waffle cones.
