This is one of my favorite dairy-free, Paleo chocolate ice cream recipes, and it only requires two ingredients! Feel free to top it with your favorite AIP approved toppings.

Cacao is rich in calcium, thiamin, riboflavin, magnesium, sulfur, flavonoids, essential fatty acids and contains more than 20 times the antioxidants than found in blueberries. The naturally occurring elements found in cacao can help to lower LDL cholesterol and reduce heart disease and cancer risk. Cacao also has a positive effect on your emotions by raising serotonin levels, decreasing depression and promoting relaxation and contentment.
