Summer isn't over yet and this refreshing creamy froyo will satisfy your sweet tooth! If you are like me and have a few pounds of frozen blackberries in the freezer (we grow our own), this is a great way to enjoy them. Or you can make a batch of our Low-Carb Blackberry Chia Jam.

This low-carb treat is adapted from my Quick Keto Berry Ice-Cream, a recipe I created for our KetoDiet App). I used frozen blackberries although any berries will work in this frozen dessert: raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and even blackcurrants.

The best part? This super simple low-carb berry ice cream only takes 5 minutes to prepare and you'll only need 5 ingredients. It's naturally sweet with no additional sweeteners. If you like your ice-cream super sweet, feel free to add low-carb sweeteners to taste.

How To Make Dairy-Free and Nut-Free Keto Ice-Cream

I like the combination of almond milk, full-fat yogurt (I used 5% fat Greek yogurt) and mascarpone because it makes the ice cream smooth and creamy with a zing, not as rich and heavy. If you are dairy-free, use coconut cream and coconut yogurt and if you are nut-free, swap the almond milk for any seed milk or just use water.

You can substitute part of the almond milk with heavy whipping cream. Just remember that you shouldn't use too much heavy cream as the fats may separate during blending and the ice-cream may split beyond fixing. (I've done that myself and had to ditch the whole batch!)

Why Add MCT Oil to Ice-Cream?

If you want to increase the fat content, add up to 4 tablespoons of MCT oil. Unlike fats in heavy cream and coconut cream, MCT oil remains liquid even when frozen and the ice-cream will not split. This makes MCT oil the ideal ingredient for soft and creamy keto ice-cream.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi Martina,
Thanks for another great recipe. I struggle to print these recipes from my IPad and IPhone. They always print out on multiple pages in large font.  I haven’t had this problem printing from other sites so I don’t think it’s my devices. Any suggestions? We’d love to be able to print off some of our favorites.

Thank you for your kind words, Carolyn! I let my partner know so he will answer shortly.

Thank you for the response Nico. I’ve looked in recipes on my IPad and  IPhone and don’t see any purple buttons. The only print option I see is at the top of the screen. I’ve had the app for several years and know it updates but could that be an issue? Do you think I should consider reinstalling? I wouldn’t want to lose all my favorites though.
