Keto Ice Cream
Ice cream recipes are easy to make so please try this one. If you plan on making a large batch and letting it hang in your freezer, it’s generally a good idea to incorporate a couple of tablespoons of booze into your ice cream.
Remember that high alcoholic beverages do not freeze, so they will help your ice cream stay creamy smooth rather than rock-solid.
If you haven’t already heard, allulose is my new FAVE keto sweetener! When using allulose, I don’t experience the tummy troubles that I often have with erythritol and xylitol. Please note, this recipe requires an ice cream maker.
Ingredients For Keto-Friendly Ice Cream
- 1 cup allulose (or 3/4 cup erythritol)
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 vanilla bean (halved and scraped, reserving seeds)
- 2 large eggs (use pasteurized shell eggs or
- Egg Beaters if you have safety concerns about consuming raw eggs)
- 3 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- a few pinches sea salt
Method to Make Keto Ice Cream
- In a small bowl, mix together sweetener, xanthan gum, and vanilla bean seeds until fully combined. Set aside.
- In a bowl (or directly in your ice cream basin), beat eggs (or Egg Beaters) using a whisk or electric hand mixer on low speed. Gradually add the sweetener mixture until combined.
- Add heavy cream, almond milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix until ingredients are evenly incorporated.
- Pour mixture into your electric ice cream maker. Process until thick & frozen.
About Keto-Friendly Allulose
If you haven’t already heard, allulose is my new FAVE keto sweetener! When using allulose, I don’t experience the tummy troubles that I often have with erythritol and xylitol.
Allulose is not sugar alcohol but is actually a naturally occurring, zero-glycemic,
the sugar-like substance that is found in only a few foods including figs, jackfruit, and raisins. Allulose has 70% the sweetness of sugar so you need to adjust accordingly when replacing allulose for sugar (or erythritol) in recipes.
If you’re going to be making homemade ice cream regularly, I highly recommend buying an ice cream maker.
