Almond Joy-Like Ice Cream (DF)

I know many people say they have the best husband in the world, but really, it is only because they don't know mine! I am honestly so beyond blessed to have married this man! He is an incredible husband, the best father children could ask for, and ultimately the perfect match to me.

This week is big in our world. We are celebrating 5 years of marriage, and the end of his 8+ years in the Marine Corps. It is a scary time, but so exciting as we look and move into the next chapter of our lives. Happy 5 years my love!!

Almost 5 Ago! He looks like such a baby!!

Additionally, he comes up with creative little creations like this gem. This is one he developed last night, and it will definitely be used again. This is one of the best ice creams, paleo or not, that I have EVER had!!

Almond Joy-Like Ice Cream
1 Can Coconut Milk
3 tsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp raw honey
1/4 C coconut flakes+ topping
1/4 C slivered almonds+ topping

In a mixing bowl, combine coconut milk, cocoa powder and honey.  Place ingredients in an ice cream maker and turn on. Once ice cream gets to soft serve consistency, stir in coconut flakes and slivered almonds. Allow ice cream to finish hardening and mix in.  Enjoy topped with additional coconut and almonds. Enjoy!!
