Who doesn’t love ice cream? But what if you’re following a dairy-free and sugar-free lifestyle? Fear not, because I’ve got the perfect solution for you. This dairy-free sugar-free ice cream is not only delicious but also incredibly easy to make. With just four ingredients, you can indulge in a creamy and satisfying treat without any guilt. Let’s dive into the details and learn how to make this delightful dessert.
Keto Ice Cream Recipe
Creamy dreamy chocolate ice cream…nothing like it! Whether you’re a chocolate or vanilla lover, this dairy-free and sugar-free ice cream will satisfy your cravings. I’ve had the idea to create a healthy ice cream recipe for a while now, and this chocolate version happened to come to fruition first. Now, you can enjoy a bowl of the creamiest homemade ice cream that’s low in carbs and high in flavor.
Using canned coconut cream or milk is the secret to achieving the perfect creamy texture. Surprisingly, you won’t taste the coconut at all; all you’ll experience is pure chocolate goodness. This recipe calls for an ice cream maker, but trust me, it’s worth it. With less than five ingredients, you can create a dessert that will blow your mind.
Keto-Friendly Ice Cream
This ice cream not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also fits into a low-carb lifestyle. It contains fiber and protein, making it a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream. Now, you might be concerned about the higher fat content, but don’t worry. Healthy fats, like those found in coconut milk, are satiating and can still be part of a balanced diet. This chocolate ice cream is perfect for special occasions when you want to treat yourself without compromising your health goals.
It’s important to note that this ice cream is dairy-free, making it suitable for those with lactose intolerance. If you’re looking to reduce the fat content while maintaining the dairy-free aspect, you can substitute half of the coconut milk with unsweetened almond milk or even heavy cream, if dairy isn’t an issue for you. Trust me, it will still be delicious and maintain its creamy texture. Plus, it’s low in carbs, making it a keto-friendly, sugar-free delight.
If you’re in the mood for a no-churn ice cream, I’ve also got a few recipes up my sleeve: No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream and No Churn Strawberry Frozen Yogurt. These recipes are just as delicious and require no special equipment.
Ice Cream Base Ingredients
To create this delectable treat, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 13.5 ounces of canned coconut milk
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Chocolate stevia or another sweetener of your choice
- My Keto Simple Syrup (optional) or other liquid sweeteners like Allulose or MCT oil
- Optional ingredients: pinch of sea salt, sugar-free chocolate chips, sugar-free magic shell
How to Make Sugar-Free Chocolate Ice Cream
Making this ice cream is a breeze. Here’s how you do it:
- Mix all the ingredients in a blender.
- Taste and adjust the sweetener to your preference.
- Carefully pour the mixture into an ice cream machine and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Serve immediately or store as directed (see “Storage” below).
Low Carb Sweetener Options
If you don’t have chocolate liquid stevia, you can use plain or even vanilla. However, I recommend using at least ½ teaspoon to achieve the desired sweetness. If you don’t have liquid stevia at all, you can use packets of stevia instead (around three should do the trick). Another option is to try chocolate liquid Monk Fruit or refer to my Sweetener Guide & Conversion Chart for other alternatives. Avoid using erythritol, as it tends to crystalize the ice cream and make it overly hard when frozen.
To store this ice cream, simply treat it like regular ice cream. Place it in a freezer-safe container and store it for up to two months. When you’re ready to enjoy it, allow it to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving. Please note that the nutritional information provided doesn’t include any optional ingredients.
