Paleo & GAPs Maple Bacon Ice Cream Recipe

Did I tell you the kids love bacon? Especially Kid Two. He just loves it. And they all enjoy trying the “fancier” packages from Good Eggs from time to time. I will say though, they’re not at the extreme level yet where they want bacon covered chocolate. So, I got to thinking about ice cream one night, and BOOM! Maple Bacon Ice Cream. Bacon? goooood. Ice Cream? goooood. Maple? Greeeat, because Kid Three tolerates it much better than cane sugar. I knew in that moment that because bacon would be involved, it had to be Paleo so everyone could have a nice big bowl of it.

The ice cream machine sort of quit on me again. As usual, it was too hard on the outside and too soft on the inside. It wasn’t the end of the world (have to stay positive). That’s what freezers are for.
