Apricot Ice Cream (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gaps)

We made it! After a long journey, we now live in beautiful Florida. I grew up in Texas, so the South resonates with me – the friendly people, slower pace, and patriotism (American flags are everywhere!).

If you’ve never traveled to the Destin area, you must put it on your list. You’ll love the breathtaking white sand beaches and emerald waters. We’re so thankful for the opportunity to return.

As soon as I arrived, I started asking people about co-ops and local farms to buy quality produce, meats, eggs, dairy, etc. Delightfully, I have many choices – numerous co-ops exist here. I even found some nice little health food stores in case I need to get something in a hurry. Each time I move, I look at these websites first: Local Harvest, Eat Wild and Real Milk. Then I begin to ask around. No matter where we’ve lived (including the Mojave Desert) I’ve always been able to find quality foods. You just have to look around and ask people.

I’ve always loved Seaside, so Saturday we headed down the road to check out their Saturday Farmer’s Market. Produce, fresh eggs, cheese, plants, even Paleo chili were all for sale. It’s an idyllic place for a market. White picket fences, beautiful pastel-colored beach-side homes, little shops, boutiques and restaurants all set on the Emerald Coast.

I bought a sack full of apricots and decided it was time to pull out the ice cream maker. I love this little machine! In fact, I’ve had mine for 15 years and it’s still going strong. I keep the bowls in the freezer so whenever we feel like ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet, or sorbet we can whip up a batch (or a few batches to share with friends). Many hesitate to purchase one, but with all the preservatives, additives, and processed ingredients in store-bought ice cream, making ice cream homemade is a better option.

Apricot Ice Cream (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gaps)

Serving Size: Serves 6

Apricot Ice Cream (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gaps)

Anyone who owns an ice cream maker needs to purchase The Perfect Scoop, by David Lebovitz. I substitute either raw honey or maple syrup for the white sugar with in his recipes and have always had fantastic results!


Adapted from The Perfect Scoop.

Ingredients

    For the ice cream:

  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh apricots, sliced in half, pits removed
  • 3/4 cup water

  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh heavy cream (or canned coconut milk for Paleo
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Instructions

Place halved apricots in a medium saucepan. Pour water over and heat to a simmer over medium-low heat until apricots begin to soften, about 8-10 minutes. Stir in honey. When honey is dissolved remove from heat. Cool to room temperature. Pour apricot mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in cream, almond extract and lemon juice. Chill until very cold, about 3-4 hours. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Serve.

After surviving 5 brain surgeries and a stroke in my late twenties due to an aneurysm, I have been on a mission to remove chemicals from our diets, products and lives. I am now the mother of two beautiful daughters, but feeding my family gives me serious anxiety with the state of the food supply. This looks wonderful, I can’t wait to try it!! I would LOVE to win an ice cream maker! I am so dismayed when looking at the ice cream selection at the store (even the organic ones have tons of filler ingredients that I don’t want to feed my family)… Thanks for the inspiring post and I hope I’ll be making my own ice cream at home with one of these beautiful Cuisinarts!!

I can’t say I’ve ever made homemade ice cream (though I did have homemade vanilla ice cream at a local bar/restaurant once, and it was lovely), but my favorite flavor would probably be vanilla bean or mint chocolate chip, so those would be the first two that I tried to make.

Who ever said Vanilla was boring was a crazy person.

There is nothing like homemade ice cream!! We had a tradition while I was growing up for Christmas where we would eat our big meal later in the afternoon, 2-3 o’clock, then when you weren’t REALLY hungry, but you were ready for a little something, we would make homemade peppermint ice cream! Throughout the summertime, one of our favorites was “Jamocha” (chocolate/coffee ice cream). We weren’t on the whole foods train, but now that I have a family of my own, we have made some changes. It’s always fun to try and make something like I remembered it, yet feel SO great feeding it to my family!

I purchased milk, eggs and cheese from Mosier Farms last week and was very pleased. They come through the area every week and the prices are great! http://www.mo-ganics.com

My favorite is peach because that is the one my mom always would make. I am going to try to see if I can use my fresh blueberries from the farmers market for this one!

Florida looks oh so lovely, I think I need a holiday about now! This ice cream maker looks sooo good! I find it awfully difficult to make coconut milk ice cream (I’m lactose free) without one, and ice cream has always been a childhood love of mine. I miss ice cream since I can’t eat any dairy, and I really want to relive the love of my childhood :(

I really like ice cream that’s green: pistachio and mint chocolate chip. Since eating somewhat healthier with my husband though, I don’t have ice cream nearly enough! Homemade would be such a great option, and apricot’s are my favorite fruit to grow!

I haven’t experimented too much with the homemade ice cream, but vanilla is always so much better homemade. I have a little ice cream maker and I’m trying out this recipe as we speak! I can’t wait to try it!!

Hi there … I just discovered your site tonight (and signed up for emails) and have to tell you how much I love your recipes, photographs, and the overall layout! Today marks 2 weeks I’ve experimented with a self-imposed elimination diet, having cut out dairy and gluten at the same time to hopefully see some relief from my facial eczema which, while a mild case, has been a constant source of itchy aggravation for me for some time. I really feel my diet is to blame for my susceptibility to so many types of dermatitis in my adult life, so I’ve decided to try to heal from the inside out. :)

In any case, thanks for what you do! And welcome to Florida! I live in Orlando (moved up from South Florida 2 years ago).

Oh, I do have one question: I see you meticulously label every recipe as “free” of whatever it is free of, but in looking over this one above (the apricot ice cream), it seems it would be gluten and dairy free (using coconut milk, of course). Am I wrong? I’m a novice at all this, of course, so appreciate any tips for the gluten free “code” diets.

THANK YOU!!!

Reply

Whitney June 13, 2013 at 2:31 am

OOPS, I had one more question (sorry!) …

I have been a “pescatarian” for 3 years but have also cut out my beloved shrimp the past 2 weeks, so now am vegetarian. Do you have any recommendations for modifying your recipes that include meat? I’ve yet to try experimenting with tofu but it’s been purchased so it will be done. :) I’m a big fan of Gardein products but they contain wheat, so have been off the list of late. I also feel strongly about only consuming non-GMO soy, which further eliminates many meat substitutes. I feel so limited and it’s frustrating but I want to be healthy! Any advice would be so much appreciated! I hope I haven’t asked too much. Apologies if so.

THANK YOU!

I don’t really have much advice for adapting my recipes to be vegetarian. I know it’s not a popular opinion, but I don’t really agree with the vegetarian diet (unless it needs to be used for a short period of time to heal the body). Pastured, organic meats are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin D as well as others. (I’m not talking conventional meat – that’s a whole different story.) But, I strongly believe in the healing benefits of pastured, organic meat. Here’s an article on this important topic: http://www.westonaprice.org/farm-a-ranch/splendor-from-the-grass

I also don’t use any soy in my recipes (only occasional fermented soy or tamari sauce). Soy can be detrimental to the thyroid, adrenals, metabolism, etc. so I don’t advise eating it. Again, I know this isn’t a popular opinion, but it’s one I’ve throughly researched and feel strongly about. :) Here’s a great article on soy that might help you understand my perspective: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/12/04/soy-dangers-summarized.aspx

Whitney June 16, 2013 at 11:06 pm

Thank you for this information as well. I will read the articles you linked to. I do sometimes struggle with the “meat or no meat” debate in my head and life, so I appreciate learning whatever I can. It will be hard to modify for me from a moral standpoint (NO judgement for others AT ALL) but I want to be educated so thank you.

You’re welcome. I’m glad you found the info helpful. I understand you’re perspective. :)

Deliciously Organic June 13, 2013 at 10:13 am

Welcome to the site! I’m glad you’re finding it helpful! :) If a recipe is labeled grain-free then it’s always gluten free. And if it’s labeled Paleo then it’s grain-free, gluten free and dairy free. So for my recipes, if you see Paleo then that will indicate it’s both gluten free and dairy free. Does that make sense?

Whitney June 16, 2013 at 11:04 pm

Thanks so much for this explanation! Looking forward to trying out your recipes.

Hi, I can’t wait to make this. I just harvested a tree full of apricots, seeded them and boiled them in honey and water. Can you tell me how much apricot syrup (after I blend it) equals 1 1/2 pounds of apricots? I have no idea how many pounds I picked. Thank you!

Jenny July 12, 2014 at 1:01 pm

I made this recipe with peaches instead and then used amaretto instead of almond extract. Heaven!

Great idea! I’ll have to give that a try!

I substituted peaches and they got very juicy in the saucepan. Do I drain the juice or leave it in?

Reply

Deliciously Organic July 31, 2014 at 7:49 am

You can leave the juice in. The apricots also get juicy when they are cooked.
