Above, Watch the step-by-step video of keto ice cream recipe Ingredients for sugar-free ice
cream You only need four ingredients for this recipe: coconut milk, sweetener of choice (such as xylitol or erythritol), pure vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Be sure to look for
whole canned coconut milk, not light coconut milk or the coconut milk drink cartons sold in the case of dairy. I have not tried to replace it with heavy cream.
Sugar-free options that work well for the sweetener include granulated erythritol or xylitol, a natural, low-glycemic sugar alternative with 40% fewer calories that is absorbed more slowly than sugar and doesn’t have the same effect on insulin or blood sugar levels. (Like chocolate, raisins, and avocados, it should not be fed dogs.)
If you’re not counting carbs or watching sugar intake, you can feel free to use your favorite all-purpose sweetener, such as sugar, honey, or pure maple syrup.
I haven’t tried allulose or stevia in this frozen dessert and therefore can’t personally recommend it here. Be sure to report if you experiment.
The recipe is based on my Avocado Ice Cream
and Coconut Ice Cream
How to Make Keto Ice Cream
Stir milk, sweetener of choice, salt and pure vanilla extract. If you make chocolate ice cream, add the cocoa powder as well.
If you have a refrigerator, prepare the machine according to the manual specific to your make and model. (Some models must be frozen in advance.)
Beat according to the manufacturer’s instructions. I have a Cuisinart ice cream machine, which takes about fifteen minutes to make ice cream.
For a shake-free version without an ice cream machine, freeze the mixture in ice cube trays, which can be purchased for as little as two dollars at most grocery stores or home stores like Bed Bath Beyond.
Then mix the frozen ice cubes in a Vitamix, or thaw enough to mix in a food processor or regular blender. I like to take it out with a scoop of ice cream for a form of authentic ice cream.
The homemade keto ice cream recipe can be vegan, paleo, egg-free, dairy-free, low-carb, sugar-free, soy-free, and gluten-free.
If you’re looking for a low-fat or fat-free frozen dessert recipe, I recommend this creamy banana ice cream or my favorite lemon sorbet.
