    I know it says for kids but this sounds really good! It’s going to be real hot tomorrow here in Ohio which I think will make for the perfect time to try!

    Perfect! I bought popsicle molds a few days ago and they’ve been sitting empty on the counter while I’ve been looking for some Paleo-friendly popsicle ideas. Thanks! :)

    We use an electic ice cream maker to make frozen yogurt (in 25 minutes) using very similar ingredients along with honey. Just google “SCD frozen yogurt” and you’ll discover a ton of delicious variations. And ditto on the relief at being able to serve this instead of the store bought frozen yogurts having questionable ingredients.

      Yes! I often blend frozen berries and heavy cream in a blender, pour into popsicle molds and it works beautifully!
