5 Ingredient Roasted Strawberry Paleo Ice-cream


I love ice cream and I have always wanted to make my own.  Back when I was pregnant, before my paleo days I would indulge in a pint of dairy ever so often. It always made me feel like crap. I should have totes listened to those red flags! Anywho… later since going paleo, while there are some decent dairy free ice-creams out there, are lot of them are full of crap ingredients, and they’re not cheap. So.. just make your own right? Not having an ice cream machine I thought it impossible or too laborious until I just did it. So. Freaking. Worth. It.

What took the longest was roasting the berries, a step that I believe is totally amazing because roasted strawberries taste better than fresh ones, the end.

Don’t let the multi step freeze & churn turn you off. I goes by fast and it’s not like you’re churning butter, a besides, use a mixer and save the elbow grease for the gym 😉

  • Sheet pan
  • Electric mixer
  • Large stainless steel bowl
  • Spatula
  • air tight storage container
  • 2 cups fresh hulled & halved strawberries

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • 2 vanilla bean scrapings
  • 3-5 tbsp clover honey (to taste)


  1. Roast strawberries (you can do this ahead of time).
  2. Preheat oven to 400f and spread berries out on sheet pan (you can line with parchment paper).
  3. Roast for 30 minutes but keep and eye on them, you don’t want them to burn.
  4. If they start caramelizing early it’s ok, just take them out.
  5. They will still be juicy & sweet.
  6. Let strawberries cool! Completely!
  7. Move to clean bowl and place in fridge to expedite process- if needed.

  12. Resist the urge to gobble up delicious concoction.
  13. With spatula scrape down the mixture so none remains on the wall of the bowl.
  14. Place bowl in freezer for 30 minutes.
  15. After 30 minutes the outer parts will be solidifying, scrape all that together and beat with mixer until smooth.
  16. Place back in freezer and repeat process in another 30 minutes.
  17. You will see the progression to creamy each time.
  18. After the 4th time, transfer to storage container & freeze until ready to enjoy!
