This Paleo Creamy Peach and Mango Ice Cream is soft and smooth and is one of the perfect paleo desserts for your summer dinners! Which secret ingredient do I use to help make my ice creams stay soft? Well, read on and find out a little trick to making SOFT, and of course paleo, dairy-free, and always gluten-free ice creams.
Here you have it: the hint is the Rum. Rum helps keep the ice-cream soft after freezing. A quick chemistry lesson for you: the freezing point of the ice cream is lowered by adding in the alcohol, which gives you the desired ice-cream texture! Give this trick a try, and you will be amazed at the difference. Say goodbye to those icicles that welcome you when opening up your overly frozen ice cream, and say hello to this smooth and creamy consistency!
I love to make this ice-cream because it is very easy and quick to do so. Two of my favorite fruits, peaches, and mangos, are so delicious and nutritious, and add just the perfect summer flavor.
