My last time in San Diego, I made this on a whim for my friends who are all finally doing Paleo, and just made it again last night. It’s easy, delicious and you know EXACTLY what’s in it.
I mixed a 50/50 ratio of organic grass-fed heavy whipping cream and Trader Joe’s light coconut milk together in a spouted cream dispenser with a bit of organic vanilla extract, some organic cinnamon and a small dash of organic nutmeg. After putting frozen organic blueberries into some favorite serving glasses, I then gently poured the mixture (nectar of fricken awesome goodness, I call it) over the frozen blueberries, tilting the glass on it’s side and gently rotating the glass so the mixture could coat all of the frozen blueberries on all sides, freezing as it does. If you don’t use too much of the mixture, (as I did in this photo), it will entirely freeze from the coldness of the frozen blueberries, creating a rather amazing frozen dessert that is still relatively healthy with no added sugar or sweeteners. This little concoction can greatly satisfy any ravenous “ice cream cravings” that athletes who are newly committing to a healthier meal plan, Paleo or otherwise, might be fighting. I recommend using the larger size frozen blueberries, if you can, as they create more space between each blueberry, making it easier for the elixir to fully coat them and allowing for easier spoon-fulls when eating it. (The 3# bag of organic frozen blueberries from Costco actually work very well.) You could also switch it up a bit with frozen raspberries, blackberries, etc, or maybe a bit of organic almond extract for a change of flavor. I wouldn’t worry too much about the “fat” if you are a committed CrossFit athlete training several days a week (unless you plan to gorge yourself on this every day) as it really isn’t all that much fat, is relatively “healthy” fats, we burn a lot of calories, and if we’ve been eating right, we’ve pretty much converted our metabolic systems to being more “fat burners” than “sugar burners”. 🙂 You can experiment with adding a bit of Rum, Kahlua or other alcohol of your choice, but know that if you add too much, it probably won’t freeze well over the blueberries as most hard alcohols don’t freeze.
