Maple Bacon Ice Cream

My awesome farmer gave me some amazing fresh bacon she smoked yesterday, it was the BEST bacon I have ever had.  I decided there was no better way to enjoy it then to take breakfast and throw it in some ice cream, who would complain about ice cream for breakfast.  That lead to this delicious Maple Bacon Ice Cream.  Before I made this one, I left my can of coconut milk in the fridge over night and the ice cream was done in under 10 minutes, it really helped the Ice Cream maker work.  I hope you enjoy :)

  1. Thank you for this recipe, made this for the family tonight, and everyone, even my picky husband LOVED this! I get to enjoy ice cream again

  2. I was planning on making this to go with my paleo apple crumble to take to a friends place for dessert.. Didn’t leave myself enough time but ended up serving my crumble with some Coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract cream? I’m not sure what you would call it, but it was amazing! And went perfectly with the apple crumble, it was also great cause one of my friends can’t have dairy and so she thought it was great too! Thanks

  3. i know this is more a paleo website than a marine website but i just had to write this after reading the paragraph before your recipe. I remember a marine ate some ice cream for breakfast during the last week of boot camp and our senior di lost it on him. he told him some choice words i´d rather not type here, called him a disease, and then made the whole row he was sitting in leave the chow hall. Thank you for the recipe, i will be trying this for breakfast soon.

  4. Awesome Amanda, thanks for coming to tell me. Thank you also for all the support on my website, I will keep doing my best for you
