Sea salt and chocolate are a match made in heaven.

Seriously, one lesson I have learned on my culinary journey {so far} is that adding a touch of sea salt to a cholcatey dessert is always a good idea. Always.

The inspiration for this Paleo Sea Salt Chocolate Ice Cream came to me on a date night with Ritch before Mara was born. We went out for ice cream and  chocolate peanut butter wasn’t an option {GASP}!

After getting over my disappointment, I opted for the sea salt chocolate fudge {and of course, had them mix in some peanut butter}. It was the BEST ice cream flavor I had ever tried. Seriously the saltiness offset the bittersweet chocolate so well my mind was blown!  However, my body didn’t love me the next day {because dairy is definitely not by BFF}. So, I decided I had to recreate a healthier, dairy-free version at home…STAT.

Paleo Sea Salt Chocolate Ice Cream: Method

Making this ice cream is SUPER easy! Simply melt the chocolate and coconut oil together, then toss all the ingredients into a blender {Vitamix} and blend for 30-60 seconds until smooth!

Pour the mixture directly from the blender container into an ice cream maker and let it churn! Something important to note: always turn on your ice cream maker before pouring the ice cream mixture in. Doing this keeps the ice cream from freezing to the bottom/sides, which can hinder the churning process!

Once the ice cream has finished churning, transfer it to a freezer-friendly container. Let it freeze for at least 1 hour before digging in!

Paleo Sea Salt Chocolate Ice Cream: Substitutions

As always, I recommend making this recipe exactly as written! There are a couple substitutions that will still result in a delicious frozen treat! But please do not substitute the coconut cream. I have found that coconut cream makes the absolute best dairy-free ice cream on the planet. Any other non-dairy milk will likely result in a sub-par final product. So please, go buy some and thank me later.

Honey: For a vegan option use maple syrup! You can try other liquid sweeteners, although I have only used honey & maple syrup so I cannot say with certainty that they will taste as yummy! If you do try another liquid sweetener, report how it went in the comments!

Unsweetened chocolate: Any variety of chocolate works here! I recommend keeping it dark, but if you’re more of a milk chocolate person that works too.

That’s it! I do not recommend making any other substitutions in this recipe!
