The Best Keto Ice Cream

6 ratings

This low-carb ice cream is a delightful treat that requires 3 ingredients and just 5 minutes to prepare. This recipe is one of the best Keto treat recipes you will ever come across! You won't believe how such an easy Keto recipe can result in delicious and smooth ice cream.

What do you need to make the best Keto ice cream at home?

The base of this Keto ice cream requires a few ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen. All you need is heavy cream, allulose (or any powdered sweetener), and vanilla extract. You can also add other ingredients to elevate the flavor and texture.

What is the best sweetener for this recipe?

While any powdered or granulated sweetener would work in this recipe, it's best to choose one that doesn't harden or crystallize when frozen; we found that the best Keto sweetener for this recipe is allulose. It doesn't yield rock-hard ice cream nor crystallize.

What flavorings can you add to this Keto ice cream?

There are endless variations to this Keto ice cream recipe. If you want to add any low-carb berry, we recommend using it in freeze-dried form. Blitz the freeze-dried fruit until it's a powder, then mix it with the other ingredients. Using fresh or frozen berries will make your ice cream icy instead of creamy.

If you want chocolate-flavored ice cream, simply add cocoa powder and more sweetener. You can also add any nut butter or chopped nuts you prefer. The choices are endless.

Is there an alternative to shaking?

We understand if you don't feel like shaking for 5 full minutes. You can use an immersion blender to make this low-carb ice cream. Just make sure to mix in any crunchy additives after you blend.

    Delicious! Doubled the recipe and added instant espresso powder along with the vanilla (though did not double the vanilla) to make coffee flavored ice cream. Was very hard to scoop out, even with heating spoon. So was a crumble jumble in my dish but soon softened up beautifully. Definitely a keeper!

      Used 4 cup Pyrex Measuring Cup to mix. Took about 3 minutes with Immersion Blender to whip. 6Tbl Allulose fine. 2tsp instant coffee.

    This is heaven ! I used the skinny flavor syrup instead of vanilla and it was perfect

      I am confused by the nutrition. I cup of cream and some sweetener + flavoring makes a pound? Perhaps 2 cups with air incorporated but a pound in weight? 4 scoops is 9 oz and 7 net carbs? How is this even keto friendly? 2 scoops maybe but dangerous to eat this straight outta the jar, no?

        You also take away the sugar alcohols from the total carbs

          I don't have allulose. Can I use swerve, erythritol or xylitol?

            Don't know about those, but don't use sugar substitute with the consistency of caster sugar as it makes the end result very grainy

            did you try using the other sweetener? I want to try this recipe.

          How can the net carbs be 1.8 when the total carbs are 8.6 and there’s no fiber? What am I missing?

            The sugar alcohol is subtracted from the total carbs as well as any fiber!

            Have same question, made this today and all carb grams are considered in net crabs. I did manual adjustment in 80 - 20 ration to sugar alcohols and net carbs.

            You also have to subtract the sugar alcohol along with fiber from the total carbs to get net carbs

            Recipe makes 4 servings, so you must divide total recipe macros all by 4

            There is a little ‘i’ next to the net carbs if you scroll down to the Nutrition Facts part of the recipe. Apparently Sugar Alcohols don’t count towards your net carbs but are apart of the total.

          Has anyone made this recipe by putting it in an old fashion ice cream bucket or kitchen aid mixer to process it, then freeze it?

            I'm interested, too...I want to try it in my Cuisinart ice cream freezer.

          A-MAZ-ING. Definitely made a difference using allulose. I tried with stevia and it was super hard. Great taste and just enough to enjoy a little bit of dessert. Tastes better than store bought stuff!
