This dairy free and paleo coffee ice cream is really something. Not only is it very easy to make, but it’s also egg free and sugar free. Vegans and those of you who eat paleo alike can absolutely enjoy this delicious, homemade soft serve ice cream. Be sure to serve it up alongside my apple tarts with chocolate or my raw hazelnut mint tart! (Recipe courtesy of Tina Turbin from PaleOmazing.)
