Summertime is filled with tempting treats like ice cream cones and popsicles to help you beat the summer heat. But, store-bought frozen treats are often filled with sugar, dairy, and other additives like artificial food coloring. If you’re following a paleo or whole-foods diet, these are all the things you’re trying to limit or avoid.
If you’re new to the Paleo diet, the goal is to eat natural, whole foods like meat, fish, fruits, and veggies, and avoid carbs, sugar, and processed foods. It’s more of a nutritional lifestyle than it is a “diet”, really. But, just because you’re avoiding processed foods, doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a sweet summer treat! We’ve collected four paleo-friendly recipes featuring nutritious whole foods like avocados, coconut milk, and fresh fruit to make delicious dairy-free and low-sugar sweets and frozen treats.
