We spent a little time in the kitchen.
Sure, you can buy almond butter, but I'm a
pain in the a$$ difficult very particular about things when it comes to food. I want almond butter that is from almonds that are organic, soaked and raw. It is a hard to find item and when you find it, you will also find that it is quite expensive. No thank you. Sure it's a little bit of work, but so worth it.
One of the things I purchased from Amazon with my birthday gift card was an ice cream machine. (Yes. I bought weights and an ice cream machine. Shut up.)
We made some Paleo friendly ice cream, using only four ingredients. We only used a quarter cup of maple syrup. I love being able to control the sweetness! The Lizard King rarely eats ice cream and on the rare times Princess eats it, she only eats about a teaspoon. Whatever! More for me! Still, Princess loves helping in the kitchen.
It was a little too coconutty for me, so I added some mint extract and just a few dark chocolate chips. I looooove mint ice cream. Next time I'll add even more mint.
