“Sweet Potato Paleo Ice Cream? Is she insane?
Did she just put the words sweet potato & ice cream into the same sentence?” you’re asking.
And yup, I sooooooooooo did!
I did, I did see a putty-cat…oops I mean…I did, I did, I did put sweet potato & ice cream in the same sentence!
And you’re going to love it!
Are you tired of the same old nice-cream made with frozen bananas and avocado?
Are you tired of eating the same ol’ breakfast smoothie bowl made with frozen berries and mango?
So I got down on my knees and prayed to the Paleo gods,
“Please Paleo Gods sitting on your mile high mound of bacon,
Give me an ice cream/smoothie bowl recipe that’s new & ready to awaken”
Now I’m a big believer in the law of attraction, and because I opened my energy up to a new way of ice-creaming, and I asked the Paleo Gods and I was ready to receive, the answer was delivered!
The recipe for sweet potato paleo ice cream was implanted into my Paleo psyche….woohoo!
So some of you might be going, “That’s dis-gust-ing! Who wants potato in their ice cream?”
Let me tell you, you do!
This is a recipe that has to be tried to believed.
You’ve probably all heard of or tried pumpkin pie or sweet potato pie? So if we’re putting these orange veggies into pies why not put them into ice cream too?
Sweet potatoes are sweet and delicious wouldn’t you agree? Sometimes when I eat roasted sweet potato I almost feel like I’m eating something “naughty” because it’s sooooooooo sweet.
So one day after eating some roasted sweet potato I thought to myself (actually the Paleo Gods put these questions into my mind!):
- I wonder if I could make a dessert with this potato?
- I wonder if it would freeze quite softly like banana or avocado?
- I wonder if I froze it, and it did freeze softly with its creamy texture intact, if I could blend it with other ingredients to make ice cream or a smoothie?
- And then I wondered, I wonder if I could stop wondering, and actually try this idea out!
So I did. I roasted up some extra sweet potato. I let it cool. Then I froze it. Then I blended it with coconut cream and cinnamon.
And then I danced a dance of jubilation at the amazing deliciousness of this invention sent to me through the mighty law of paleo attraction!

Sweet Potato Paleo Ice Cream Recipe
(Video demonstration below too!)
Sweet Potato Paleo Ice Cream Ingredients
- 1 very large sweet potato (kumara) peeled and diced into approx. 2cm cubes
- Olive oil
- 1 cup coconut cream
- 1/2 cup water
- 1-2 tsp cinnamon or the sweet spice blend from the Rumbles Lifestyle Hub Spice Module
- 1 TAB honey/maple syrup/rice malt syrup or a squirt of liquid stevia (optional)
- Rumbles Crumbles Cinnamon Crunch Muesli to serve (optional)
Sweet Potato Paleo Ice Cream Directions
NIGHT BEFORE – PREPARE YOUR SWEET POTATO
- Preheat the oven to 200°C.
- Coat cubed sweet potato in a little olive oil, poor onto a baking pan and roast for 40-45 minutes.
- Once cooked, let potato cool and then put in a container and freeze over night.
MAKE THE ICE CREAM
- Place about 2 cups worth (about 200g) of frozen sweet potato into a high speed blender with coconut cream, water, cinnamon and sweetener of choice. Pop the rest of the potato back into the freezer for another time (or add it in, but you’ll need to alter the liquid measurements to accommodate this).
- Blend ingredients until smooth. You may need to stop your blender and scrape everything together as the mixture is thick and it needs some encouragement to blend to a smooth consistency. If you’re having trouble, add more water to thin out the mixture.
- You have two options now! You can eat the sweet potato ice cream straight away (which I recommend) or place it into a container and freeze until slightly firm. If you freeze your ice cream for too long it will get very hard and it will need to be defrosted for a while before you can dig a spoon into it!
- Eat your ice cream on it’s own or sprinkled with Rumbles Crumble Cinnamon Crunch muesli…yum!
