THE BEST ALMOND MILK ICE CREAM
Ice cream is not just a warm-weather treat. I mean, I don’t know about you, but I love enjoying ice cream as a dessert all year round.
And there’s nothing quite like homemade ice cream made with all wholesome ingredients.
This almond milk ice cream recipe uses just 4 ingredients to make a sugar free dairy free ice cream that tastes like a dream.
The texture is unbelievably creamy with a delightfully sweet flavor that will leave you wanting more. And, in my humble opinion, it is the perfect healthy replacement for the typical high-calorie, sugar-packed ice cream that the store offers.
Also, as I mentioned earlier, the best part about this ice cream is that there is no machine required! All you have to do is mix everything together, steam it, and then let it thicken the freezer.
Oh, and this is an almond milk keto ice cream with just 1 NET CARB per serving!
So, if you’re following a low carb lifestyle – like the keto diet – this recipe is perfect.
As I mentioned earlier, you only need a few ingredients to make this almond milk ice cream recipe.
And you probably have at least half of them on hand already!
Here’s everything you’ll need:
- Just over ¾ Cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 4 egg yolks
- 4 tablespoon granulated erythritol
- Just under 1 Cup full fat coconut cream
- Sliced almonds and sugar free chocolate sprinkles for decoration
Pretty simple, right?
By the way, almond milk is not only great as a base for this ice cream, but also for this Keto Frosty and Keto Oreo Shake – so pick up an extra gallon if you have to run to the store!
Oh, and if you’re looking for something to top this low carb ice cream with, try drizzling some of this keto caramel sauce on it!
Making Sugar Free Ice Cream
So, to make this a sugar free almond milk ice cream, there is one key ingredient that we’ll be using. And that ingredient is granulated erythritol.
I used Granular Swerve to make the ice cream. It’s a 0 calorie, 0 carb sweetener with the same sweetness as regular sugar!
Another great option is to use though is an allulose based sweetener. It’s not as sweet as sugar, so just add a little bit more if you use it.
How to Make Almond Milk Ice Cream
The process of making this ice cream could not be any easier. And as I mentioned, you don’t need any special equipment to make it!
So get out your ingredients, and let’s make some ice cream!
Step 1: Preparing the Egg Mixture
Start with separating the egg whites from egg yolks and discard the whites – or use them to make this low carb bread.
Then, put the yolks in a mixing bowl along with the erythritol and beat it with a hand – or stand mixer – until the mixture becomes light, fluffy, and doubles in volume.
Step 2: Making The Ice Cream
Next, you will steam the mixture for about 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a double-bottomed pan or pot over boiling water. And make sure to stir the mixture occasionally while it steams.
After that, cool the thickened filling for a few minutes, then add in the almond milk and full fat coconut cream.
Whisk everything together until you achieve a smooth and creamy mixture.
Step 3: Freezing
For the final stage, pour the ice cream mixture into a loaf pan and sprinkle some sliced almonds on top if you want.
Then freeze the ice cream for a few hours until solid or overnight for the best results.
Finally, scoop the ice cream into a bowl and top with some more almond flakes sugar free chocolate sprinkles.
How To Store Homemade Ice Cream
This dairy free almond milk ice cream recipe will make enough for about 6 large scoops of ice cream. So, if your family is around after it freezes, odds are you won’t have any leftovers.
But if you do, you can store the ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer for about 1 month. After that, it will be good to eat a little longer but can get freezer burned.
Now, this ice cream stores super well, and if you’re making it, I definitely suggest doubling or tripling the recipe. It’s so worth it and once the ice cream is gone, you’ll wish you made more.
