Paleo Ice Cream Cake

It was my son’s 4th birthday over the weekend. Where is the time going? It seemed like it was just yesterday when he was a little 5lb. 13oz newborn! Now look at him…that is a huge snake wrapped around his tiny little neck! He’s much braver than I am! We had a reptile theme party for him since he loves any animals, but especially lizards and frogs right now. The party was so much fun and the kids loved it!

I spent a lot of time making the food, but forgot to take any pictures of the food..oops! I was too busy at the party mingling and eating, and I didn’t have time to do it before because I was literally getting dressed as the first guests arrived! So I actually had to remake this ice cream cake today to get pictures. It’s a lot of work prepping for a party. Next year we may have the party at a different location, just to make it easier. Do you like planning parties or do they stress you out?

Instead of making a cake I made some Paleo mini cupcakes and this delicious Paleo ice cream cake for one!

Have you ever had Dairy Queen’s ice cream cake? I often had their cake for my birthday growing up…we didn’t have many options. So this isn’t exactly the same, but it’s still delicious! I can’t figure out how to create a chocolate sauce that won’t freeze. Let me know if you have a recipe for that. This ice cream cake has a fudge cookie dough center sandwiched between chocolate and vanilla ice cream! Better than Dairy Queen. :)

Make this ice cream cake for you next party!
: Dessert
Serves: 1-2
  • For the chocolate ice cream:
  • 1 banana, broken into chunks and frozen
  • 1 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbs almond or coconut milk
  • For the fudge cookie dough:
  • 1 Tbs coconut oil melted
  • ½ Tbs pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup plus 1 Tbs almond flour
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 Tbs chopped walnuts
  • For the Vanilla Ice Cream:
  • 1 banana, broken into chunks and frozen
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbs coconut or almond milk
  1. Using a food processor blend all the ingredients for the chocolate ice cream until its blended well.
  2. Scoop into your dish and flatten out. Freeze for 30 minutes or until the ice cream is firm.
  3. When that is almost done freezing, make the fudge cookie dough center by mixing the melted coconut oil with the maple syrup, then the cocoa powder.
  4. When that is mixed well, add the almond flour, walnuts, and salt and mix well.
  5. Spread out onto the chocolate ice cream, using your fingers.
  6. Now add all the vanilla ice cream ingredients to the food processor and blend until smooth.
  7. Scoop onto the fudge cookie dough and smooth out with a spoon.
  8. Freeze for 30 minutes or until it's party time! I made mine the night before the party.
  9. You may want to let it sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before eating, so it softens up. If you want to make a larger cake in a 8 or 9 inch pan, I would quadruple the recipe above. Enjoy!
