This is a great quick keto treat for those hot summer days! The “ice cream” whips up in seconds and in less than an hour in the freezer it’s ready to eat.
This fat bomb is very low in carbs with over 90% of calories from fat — it's a frozen sugar-free dessert that won't spike your blood sugar levels.
I’ve used a simple sugar-free chocolate swirl here but I’ve already began to imagine the different flavour combinations that would work here — berry puree, roasted nut butter folded through or even some low-carb lemon curd would all be delicious!
Tips & Substitutions
- Instead of raw cacao powder, you can use Dutch process cocoa powder. Just make sure it is sugar-free.
- Feel free to skip the sweetener or use more to taste. Instead of erythritol-based sweeteners, you can use any of the low-carb sweeteners listed here.
- To make the this low-carb ice cream dairy-free, use coconut cream or coconut milk instead of the dairy cream.
- You can even make this ice cream taste like froyo. To do that, swap half of the cream with full-fat plain yogurt or sour cream. For dairy-free, use coconut yogurt.
