LOVE LETTER TO CRAIG
Dear Craig, My LOVE and BEST Friend;
Craig, this is a love letter to you. We have been through so many ups and downs throughout our 14 years of marriage including 2 job losses. But no matter what life throws at us, you have always been my rock and #1 supporter. I have to believe that most men wouldn’t be as cool as you when it comes to all the “dirty work” you do behind the scenes and yet do not get the credit like you should. This business should be called “CRAIG and Maria Mind Body Health” but you never complain about needing a title or recognition.
This love letter may seem goofy that I am writing this on a blog post, but I need you to know that all you do for our family does not go unnoticed; you make sure the dishwasher is loaded “properly” (and re-load it when I do it so dishes actually get clean! lol), home-school the boys with patience and love, answer blog questions and Facebook questions when I am too busy with clients, do the laundry (I haven’t folded clothes in over 2 months!), you make sure my Kale Chip addiction is full-filled by making them perfectly crispy for me, and as well as many other things such as make forms out of sheet metal for these amazing BA-CONES!
I am one lucky girl…

Bacon Ice Cream Cones
- 12 slices sugar free bacon
- 14 tablespoons coconut oil or butter if not dairy sensitive
- 4 tbs MCT oil
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or water
- 4 large eggs
- 4 large egg yolks
- 2 teaspoon banana extract
- 1/4 cup Allulose
- 1/2 tsp Redmond Real salt *helps keep ice cream soft
PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL:
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter softened
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup allulose or 1 tsp stevia: to desired sweetness or Swerve confectioners
- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Line a large baking sheet with defined edges with unbleached parchment paper.
- Using cone-shaped metal (we made our own with sheet metal), wrap one slice of bacon around each. Wrap the bacon tightly, overlapping the edges so the bacon totally covers the cone.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Remove from oven and allow to totally cool.
- Meanwhile make the ice cream.
- In a blender (I used my blendtec), place the coconut oil, MCT oil, eggs, yolks, almond milk/water, extract, natural sweetener and salt. Blend until very smooth. Place into ice cream maker and watch the magic happen!
- Meanwhile, make the peanut butter swirl by combining the peanut butter, coconut oil/butter and natural sweetener in a small bowl. Combine until smooth. Cool in fridge until ice cream is almost done.
- Swirl into the ice cream maker for the last 30 seconds.
- Turn off ice cream maker. Store in airtight container in the freezer.
I like how you paired salty with sweet in this recipe and used bacon in a dessert. Now to find a cone shaped metal…
Ps–I hope I find my Craig one day!
A lovely compliment to fine man. Steps up to be the servant and does the things that need to be done. You have a treasure!
As for you BA-CONES I am in live!
Craig is amazing, thank you Craig. So glad you found each other and so glad we found you!
Maria, I love that you are thankful!
Craig does sound indeed! like a man most men could learn from…though I’m sure if I were the success you are by all I see of you, mine wouldn’t mind helping more a bit!
Keep up the good work girl, you are an inspiration to us all…thank you for all your behind-the-scenes support, Craig :D!
Thank you! – Craig
::love::: this post. And so excited to try the BA-cones! Not a banana fan so I’m going to make chocolate w/ PB swirl. Both go great w/ bacon. (if only it were a little warmer here, I’d be on this today!!) Thanks to you both ~
wow – love this post. Indeed it’s a treasure to have the love and support of the most important person in your life. Thanks for sharing your insight and also thanks for sharing EVERYthing you do with us all.
Ba-cones: pure genius! have to try them as soon as I get an ice-cream maker. Very impressed that you have a dairy-free ice cream! awesome!
Thank you so much! 🙂
This is what husbands and wives are to each other. Just think–they have a LIFETIME of this yet to be discovered. As for “discovering” pre-made metal molds for the cone-making, I give you these:
Thanks! Cheaper and easier using what we had at the house. 🙂
I am having a hard time figuring out from the book exactly what suppleness to take. It seems like so many. Are there any that can be combined in one and what is a good natural multi vitamin for women to take at 50 with hypothyroidism? Can I find all of them on your site at amazon?
The easiest thing to do is get my supplement plan here. It is very detailed and includes everything needed for each condition.
Ba-Cones!!?!! Really?! I’ve died and gone to heaven. Maria, I think I have a “man crush” on your husband. These are just what the doctor ordered!!!
As always, thanks to you both for your persistence and brilliance.
Hi Maria, I was wondering what you think about non-gmo sunflower lecithin? I am vigilant about staying away from soy lecithin, (and all soy products) but just about every protein powder has it and my mom found one with sunflower lecithin instead.
It is a good option (especially compared to soy lecithin). 🙂
I do not have an ice cream maker, but this recipe sounded so interesting that I had to try it! I was firmly raised to fear fat and at 50 it has been a struggle to erase those fears. I have been Keto for about 6 months and love it. I wasn’t over weight, I was, bipolar, had high cholesterol, had constant yeast infections, low energy, lived on sugar and pasta, etc. And I do stress HAD. I made this and put it in a lined 9×13 pan and froze it. Then I dumped it out and broke it into pieces. Then I put it in a food processor and blended. It was so smooth but not too soft. Then I put scoops on a cookie sheet and covered with “magic coat”. (unsweetened chocolate, coconut oil and stevia) Now I have single serving scoops that I just leave out 15 min before I eat. I was surprised at how creamy the ice cream is and how good I feel after eating it! You have a gift for helping people and are so creative with recipes. 🙂
Can you tell me how much this makes? I only have a big ice cream maker so should I invest in a smaller (like 1.5 Qt) maker? What do you use?
It should make 3 1/2 to 4 cups. I use this ice cream maker and love it. Super easy. 🙂
thanks! Can’t wait to try these cones.
Maria – I bought some cones for making cream horns. I can’t get the wrapped bacon off the cones after they are cooked. Fortunately I only tried it on three of them. I chipped the bacon off and used it in an omelet. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? I used very thin sliced bacon. Should I use thicker sliced bacon next time? Love your site, love your recipes, love lo-carb!!!
Yes, a thicker bacon helps with this recipe. I updated it above. Also, use a thin knife (butter knife, etc) to slide up between the bacon and mold to loosen it helps. 🙂
Hi Maria – my wife and I are big fans for quite some time. We’ve purchased several of your books (both hard cover and e-versions). The recent chatter about meats, including cured meats like bacon and salami, are carcinogenic. I can’t tell if the recent hype is old news or a new study we should be concern with. We always buy nitrate free, sugar free bacon. Just wondering what you make of the recent chatter. Best regards from California. Tom
Tom, Maria did a blog post on this exact topic. http://mariamindbodyhealth.com/?s=Bacon
