Keto Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe
This delicious recipe is for all strawberry lovers, even if you’re not keto you’ll be surprised by the flavor and texture of this recipe.
With only 4 net carbs per serving, it’s a great way to enjoy strawberries without a sugar spike.
It’s a sugar-free strawberry ice cream that only takes five minutes to prepare before it’s chilled.
I’ve included instructions to make this recipe both in an ice cream maker or without one.
Using an ice cream maker normally takes around 25-30 minutes before it has the perfect scoopable consistency.
Allowing you to enjoy homemade, healthy ice cream in about 30 minutes from start to finish.
Note, that the longer you process the ice cream in the maker, the thicker it will be so keep that in mind.
If you are going to make this churn-free, it will take a little over three hours before it’s ready.
With that being said, it’s important to remember that homemade ice cream will not exactly have the same consistency as say store brought.
Understand that this is due to the fact that a homemade recipe will be void of fillers, preservatives, and chemicals. On, the plus side, you know exactly what ingredients are in your ice cream giving you a much healthier, tastier option.

How To Make Keto Strawberry Ice Cream?
The measurements for this recipe are for a 2-quart ice cream maker. If you are using a larger ice cream maker you can double the recipe easily.
Making this low-carb strawberry ice cream is as easy as it gets.
You’ll start by combining the lemon juice with the sugar substitute in a small bowl and giving it a stir. Just keep in mind, that sweetener will not dissolve completely.
Then you’ll pour this mixture into the blender. Once you’ve done this you’ll add the heavy cream, water, and salt into the blender and blend for about 30 seconds.
Next, you’ll add half of the strawberries into the blender and process for about another 20-30 seconds until all the mixture is completely incorporated.
Then you’ll fold the remaining sliced strawberries into the ice cream mixture.
If using an ice cream machine pour the strawberry mixture into the ice cream maker and process it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It took my machine about 20-25 minutes to process before I was serving this delicious keto frozen treat!
No-Churn Ice Cream Instructions
If you don’t have an ice cream maker? No problem you can also make this recipe without it.
Once the strawberry keto-friendly ice cream mixture is made pour it into a metal pan or pans depending on what you have. Then place the ice cream into the freezer for about an hour.
At the one-hour mark, remove the ice cream from the freezer and stir with a spoon. Then place it back into the freezer. You will repeat this step two more times for a total of three hours.
It’s at this point that the no-churn ice cream will be ready to scoop and enjoy.
If you have any leftovers, you will need to allow the ice cream to melt on the kitchen counter until it’s scoopable again.
Best Sugar-Substitutes For Keto Strawberry Ice Cream
When it comes to choosing your sweetener for this sugar-free strawberry ice cream recipe, I have several low-carb options that work well.
I really like Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener because the texture is spot on and because there is barely any aftertaste. Plus it uses only natural ingredients.
This is a great one especially if you are new to sugar substitutes because it mimics sugar the most in my opinion.
I’m also partial to Swerve an erythritol blend. Although you should keep in mind that it does have a bit more of a cooling aftertaste that some people dislike.
Alternatively, you could also use a stevia and erythritol-based brand like Pyure. This is if you prefer to use stevia in your baked goods. If you go this route you need to reduce the amount by half since it is twice as sweet.
Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with great success.
I know not everyone would agree with me here and I respect that but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.
How To Store Homemade Ice Cream
Store your homemade keto ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer. These reusable ice cream containers are made specifically for ice cream.
Add a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to the top of the ice cream and store for up to three weeks.
