So…. the June Gloom in LA is REAL, guys. If you’ve never heard of it before, it’s when the weather is overcast and chilly during late spring/early summer in southern California. AND IT’S DEPRESSING. I know, I know… I’m living in a place where it’s sunny and beautiful most of the year so I shouldn’t complain, but I did NOT expect this. Nothing like a delicious ice cream to brighten up the mood though, right?

I haven’t had ice cream in forever, and it’s mostly because I just stopped eating sweets. Not only do I prefer salty foods in general, I still am dealing with candida symptoms especially when I’m under a lot of stress. However, this matcha ice cream? It contains only clean, good-for-you ingredients that doesn’t give me any of the blood sugar symptoms or digestive issues. It’s just the gosh darn best!

I love the fact that this matcha ice cream literally takes 3 ingredients to make. And it tastes AMAZING. I first had matcha ice cream when I was visiting Seoul, Korea in the summer back in middle school. The thought of green tea for ice cream seemed a bit strange to me, but once I tasted it, I was obsessed. The slightly bitter and smooth taste of matcha was so perfect with the sweet creaminess added to it.

So ever since I found out I’m intolerant to dairy (which seems like bajillion years ago), I’ve been eyeing every matcha ice cream I’ve come across with sadness because it really is one of my favorite ice cream flavors. And the fact that I can now enjoy it at home SO EASILY just in time for the summer brings me so much joy!

If you are on the RESTART sugar detox, good news: You can still enjoy this recipe! Just use green-tipped bananas. It won’t be as sweet, but it’ll still satisfy your cravings wonderfully. You gotta enjoy SOME kind of a cold treat as the weather gets warmer, in my opinion. Not go make this matcha ice cream this weekend! If you love matcha, you’ll love it. I promise!

Cinnamon Ginger Molasses No-Churn Paleo Ice Cream

paleo ice creamIt’s starting feel like summer around here, which I absolutely love. This consistently hot weather has been putting me in a great mood and I can feel my stress levels drop. If you didn’t guess already, I’m one of those peeps who always prefers scorching hot weather over freezing cold. It’s one of the main reasons I moved to California. As much as I still love NYC, the brutal winters were unbearable (I know, I’m such a wuss).

And when the weather starts getting hot, I start craving cold foods like salads, fruits, and ICE CREAM. I wasn’t really into ice cream for a while because I wasn’t able to eat it after finding out about my dairy sensitivity, so I sort of forgot how delicious it is for the past 4-5 years (You’ll be amazed at the things you’ll forget the taste of that you think you “can’t live without” once you give them up for a while). It’s only recently when I started finding some amazing coconut milk ice cream on the market that I started falling in love again.

One thing about good quality dairy-free ice cream without additives and thickeners is that they are ridiculously expensive. As delicious as they are, I’m not about to drop $8 for a pint of ice cream. I’ll make it at home, thankyouverymuch.

I was actually nervous about how this recipe would turn out because I don’t own an ice cream maker. I try not to buy too many kitchen gadgets if I can help it, because we might be moving at the end of the year so I’m trying to keep things minimal around here. So my blender came to the rescue, and it turned out surprisingly creamy which I’m super psyched about.

I used molasses to sweeten this ice cream because blackstrap molasses is chock full of nutrients and minerals. It’s also on the lower end of the glycemic index than other sweeteners, which means it it won’t spike up your blood sugar as much. Of course, if you do have blood sugar issues, I advise you to keep it regulated and use caution when consuming anything sweet. After deciding on using blackstrap molasses, I had to add in some ginger and cinnamon because that’s one of my favorite combos! Feel free to customize this recipe and replace the add-ins to flavor it to your liking. It’s healthier and better tasting than the store-bought kind!
