Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones

|Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones

I always loved ice-cream cones and craved them ever since I gave up grains and sugar. I know how to make keto ice-cream, grain-free bread and even low-carb tortillas, but it just seemed impossible to make sugar cones - after all, the main ingredient is sugar! After experimenting with different nut & seed flour mixes and sweeteners, I came up with this recipe. These cones are guilt-free and very likely the closest you will ever get to real sugar cones!

Ingredients (makes 10 cones):

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your cone maker to medium (here's a good cone maker on Amazon). In a bowl, place the almond flour, psyllium, vanilla powder and salt. In another bowl, mix the eggs, coconut milk, sweetener and melted ghee. |Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones
  2. Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the eggs and mix well. |Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones
  3. Pour the batter (about 3 tablespoons per wafer) in the cone maker and close the lid. Cook for 3-6 minutes, or until it's lightly browned and cooked through (the time depends on the cone maker and temperature setting). Once ready, use a spatula and cone shaper to fold the hot wafer around it. Place on a plate or a chopping board and let it cool down for 1-2 minutes.

  4. As it cools down, the wafer will harden. Then, you can remove the cone shaper and let it cool to room temperature. |Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones
  5. Repeat for the remaining cones (9-10 per recipe). Once cooled, place them gently one inside another and store in an airtight container for up to a month. |Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones
  6. Serve with a scoop or two of your favourite keto ice-cream - there are plenty of recipes on my blog. The pictured ice-cream is a variation of my Fat-Burning Berry Ice-Cream from the KetoDiet App. |Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones

The DIY Approach

First time I made these sugar cones I didn't have a cone maker and used DIY cone shapers made out of paper and aluminium foil based on this tutorial. Then I used a proper cone maker and the result was so much better. I wouldn't go back to using my DIY approach! It's simply too much work and the result is not worth it. The cones were thicker, unevenly cooked and as a result slightly burnt on the edges.

If you decide to give the DIY approach a try: Once you make the cone shapers, spread the sugar cone dough in round shapes on a silicon baking mat and bake them at 150 C (300 F) for 15-18 minutes. Once ready, use a spatula and your DIY cone shaper to fold the hot dough around it. Place on a plate or a chopping board and let it cool down for 1-2 minutes.

When done, fill with your favourite ice-cream like (mine is the Ultimate Keto Chocolate Ice-Cream and No-Churn Vanilla Keto Ice-Cream). |Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones |Low-Carb Ice Cream Sugar Cones

Hi Martina,
I just tried making these and the flavor is awesome, just like regular cones.  However, they were so lacy that I couldn't keep them together.  Any suggestions?

I really love your recipes!, I wonder if you added cocoa powder or dark chocolate for a chocolate cone?.

Reply

Thank you Kelly, yes, that's an excellent idea! For a chocolate cone, I'd add 1-2 tablespoons of cacao powder and use just about 1/2 cup of almond flour.

I wonder if you ever come with a recipe using a pasta machineSmile you are so creative! Thank you

Reply

Thank you! I did buy a pasta maker a while ago to see if I can make keto pasta. I'll share it when I do Smile

As for the DIY portion of your cone-making, I found these at Amazon:  www.amazon.com/.../ref=sr_1_2
They're called cream horn molds.  Maybe you could invent some ketofied cream horns--then you'd have walking taco dinner and cream horn dessert!

I actually have those and I do need to make some keto cream horns! Smile I originally bought them for making the cones but they were too narrow.

Your creativity never fails to amaze me! I haven't even thought about paleo/lc cone substitutes before. I think these could also be used to make fortune cookies Smile

Reply

Thank you! I totally agree, they can be shaped into anything when they are still warm Smile

Ever hear of "walking tacos"?  That's a cone-shaped tortilla with the taco filling inside, instead of a sweet-ish cone filled with ice cream.
If you were to take your existing recipe above, and substitute chili powder (or some other savory spice) for the cinnamon, and maybe garlic puree for the vanilla, then fill these cones with taco filling, you'd have one!
