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.
You can serve it in a glass or make a batch of these Keto Sugar Cones — they are legit!
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.
