Dark Chocolate Orange Ice Cream - Paleo
Serves: Makes 3-6 servings
This creamy, flavorful ice cream uses bananas for natural sweetness. If you prefer a sweeter taste, add the 1-2 tablespoons of honey. When made with carob powder, which tastes similar to chocolate, this ice cream is suitable for Autoimmune Paleo diets.
