HOW TO MAKE SUGAR FREE KETO FRIENDLY ICE CREAM (NO MACHINE NEEDED)
Homemade ice cream in my opinion is one of the few luxuries in life. There’s nothing quite like silky smooth ice cream with NO preservatives or artificial ingredients.
The problem is when a person is looking for a recipe for homemade ice cream most of the recipes are sugar, carb loaded recipes that can only be made with an ice cream maker.
Well guess what friends I have solved that problem! My recipe is low carb, sugar free and needs NO MACHINE! It is probably the easiest ice cream recipe you’ll ever make. It has only 3 ingredients (for the vanilla version) and takes less than 5 minutes to whip together. All you need is:
- a standing mixer with a whisk attachment
- 2c heavy whipping cream
- 1 1/4c sugar free condensed milk ( check out my easy recipe )
- 1TBS vanilla (this is optional if you make the chocolate version but it makes it taste way better)
Place the cream in a large mixer bowl and whisk on high 2-3 minutes or until peaks form and it can stand on it’s own. DO NOT OVER MIX. it should be fluffy but able to hold a shape. You want the end result to be stiff enough to go into an ice cream cone without falling over. Add the condensed milk and vanilla. Use a spatula or a wooden spoon and gently fold in the condensed milk and the vanilla extract, then scrap the mixture into an airtight freezer container with a lid. Freeze for 4-6 hrs at least before serving
For a chocolate version microwave 4TBS of butter on high for 30 seconds or until fully melted. Add 3/4c cocoa and 3/4c monkfruit sweetener or granulated sweetener of choice. Use a fork and whisk all together and let it cool completely. Using a spatula or a wooden spoon stir cocoa mixture into ice cream mixture before placing it into the freezer
This recipe has been revised since this video. See the written recipe below for the revised version.
Due to the fact that this recipe does not contain sugar it can freeze very solid when frozen overnight. It is best to take the ice cream out 15 to 20 minutes before using if it has been frozen overnight.
This recipe is so versatile you can add any flavor or add ins that you want. Just be creative and enjoy.
