Ingredients for a keto-friendly hot chocolate ice cream.
- 2 13.66 oz cans canned coconut milk, chilled
- 1-4 scoops chocolate protein powder 32-34 grams per scoop * See notes
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1-2 tbsp granulated sweetener of choice I used monk fruit sweetener
- Place a deep loaf pan in the freezer. Remove coconut milk from the refrigerator and separate the cream from the water.
- In a high-speed blender or food processor, add the cream first, followed by the coconut water. Blend until just combined.
- Add your dates/granulated sweetener, protein powder, and cocoa powder and blend until thick and creamy- Do not over-blend.
- Transfer the hot chocolate ice cream to the chilled loaf pan. To ensure it doesn't become too icy, lightly mix your ice cream ever 20-30 minutes for the first hour.
Before eating, thaw out the loaf pan for 15 minutes. Lightly wet a keto ice cream scoop before scooping out into a bowl.
* If you use more than 1 scoop of protein powder, blend a little longer. If it's too thick (this can happen with casein protein powder), add a tiny bit more coconut milk.
- Do not use light coconut milk, as this will become too icy.
- For a soft-serve style ice cream, enjoy immediately or freeze for 15 minutes.
- If your ice cream is too icy, let thaw for 15 minutes before scooping.
- If for some reason it won't thaw nicely, re-blend and enjoy as is.
- This tasty 4 Ingredient keto-friendly hot chocolate ice cream should be consumed within 2-3 days.
