Paleo IceCream? . .umm, maybe

(I was scouting around online a week or so ago and found this exciting site which I had never encountered before.  It looked so interesting and unique.  Very much like the off-the-wall view-point of the author, Dave Asprey.  He has done some remarkable stuff.  I’m not trying to sell him or his ideas to anyone – do your own due diligence.  But I like him and he has caught my attention.    Not going to say he is Paleo  but he is Paleo-like and very much his own man.  Just check out his own version of IceCream – Paleo-style:

Recipe: Creamy Coconut “Get Some” Ice Cream (Paleo friendly)

By Dave Asprey

Ice cream doesn’t have to be a “cheat” food.

The Bulletproof Diet is designed to provide every possible health advantage.  It allows you to keep six pack abs while eating 4500 calories a day, not exercising, while sleeping 5 hours a night.  It lowers blood pressure, melts fat, and adds muscle.  There’s no question it works, but the real question is “Can I have desert?”  Oh yes.  Not just any dessert…

Ice cream — “Get Some” Ice Cream

That’s right.  About an hour after eating this special blend of high fat awesomeness, your body gets a signal that says, “I am in a land of plenty,” which translates, in evolution-speak to, “It is time to mate. NOW.” Women in particular are most impacted by this side effect of ice cream, but it also works on men. I’ve shared this recipe with enough people to be pretty sure I’m not just making this up. In fact, I had to make some of it this evening…

As I wrote about in the Better Baby Book, your body is generally in one of two phases: growth mode and defense mode.  Your body goes into defense mode when faced with unnatural stress such as low fat, low calorie diets.  It starts to pay less attention to nonessential functions like, well, sex.  Not to mention that starving your body will probably give you cancer.

Fat is one of the most satisfying foods on the planet.  Unfortunately, most ice cream doesn’t contain good fat, and it has lots of other crap in it.  Regular ice cream has loads of refined sugar, colorings, preservatives, and artificial flavors.  These compounds can cause mental problems, blood sugar crashes, and of course, fat gain.

That’s one reason I created a hormone boosting, muscle building, fat melting ice cream concoction that you can eat without having to call it a “cheat.”  The other reason is that I wanted to increase my wife’s (and my) fertility before we had children. I made this recipe to provide maximum taste without compromising health.  Ice cream is now a health food.

This is my creation. It took literally hundreds of test batches to get this right. I consider it to be Paleo, but some disagree that cavemen ate my choice of healthy sweeteners. That’s true – they didn’t have ice cream makers either!

Note: I use a scale for my cooking experiments.  I’ve provided conversions for the usual kitchen measuring devices.

“Get Some” Ice Cream


  • 4 whole eggs (pastured of course)
  • 4 yolks (in addition to the whole eggs above)
  • 2 tsp vanilla (I use Bulletproof Vanilla, which I will be shipping soon…)
  • 1 gram vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or 10 drops apple cider vinegar or lime juice to taste.
  • 100 grams (7 tbs) grass-fed butter
  • 100 grams (7tbs) coconut oil
  • 50 grams (3tbs + 2tsp) MCT oil (important for consistency)
  • 80 grams (5.5tbs) xylitol or erythritol (or more to taste – you can add up to 160 grams if you want)
  • ~100 grams water or ice (just under 1/2 cup; add less than you think you need, then increase the amount).


  1. Blend everything but the water/ice in blender. It takes a while to get the butter blended into perfect creaminess.
  2. Add water or ice and blend some more until well blended. Ideally, you want a yogurt-like consistency for creamy ice cream, or add more water for a firmer, icier texture
  3. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and turn it on.

This will make perfect consistency ice cream.  Enjoy it, and share with your partner.  Wait an hour.

The feeling of vibrance this brings most people (who can digest fat; if you give it to your vegan partner, you need to add lipase and betaine.  If you don’t, their pancreas will panic from being forced to make real amounts of lipase for the first time in years…), along with a boost in hormones results in an intense wave of vitality…

Being a happily married Bulletproof Executive, I’ve used this recipe for years.  It’s a part of our fertility plan in the upcoming book my wife and I have written.  But it’s also far more effective – and pleasurable – than using alcohol to seduce someone.  What woman or man wouldn’t feel taken care of when their partner hands them a bowl of the creamiest, richest ice cream ever, hand-made just to seduce them?

My lovely carnivorous wife would eat me alive if I tried to test this formula on other women.  As a result, I was reduced to giving the recipe to friends and waiting for the results.

Perhaps Simone Syed, the very sexy transhumanist Co-Founder of the BIL Conference and high-fat nutrition carnivore said it best: “Oh, and trust me… The boyfriends are well aware that Paleo ice cream makes girls happy!!!”
