I love coffee. I mean, I really love coffee. But drinking a cup of coffee a day really messes with my system, so I must find new and sneaky ways to get my coffee fix.

And hey, I love chocolate too, so why not combine them? This low-carb sorbet is intensely flavoured with strong coffee and rich dark chocolate and is the perfect end to a dinner party. This keto-friendly frozen treat is not just sugar-free but also dairy-free and nut-free. Enjoy!

I made this recipe today and it was amazing! Thank you so much for sharing!
I put the base in the freezer for about an hour and a half before putting it into my ice cream maker. The only thing I would change next time is maybe pouring the base (while still liquid) through a cheese cloth to make the consistency a little more smooth.

I'm glad you enjoyed! You can also add 2 to4 tablespoons of MCT oil. This will reduce the iciness and will make the ice scream smoother 😊

What can i replace glycerin with? Thx

You can skip it or add 2 tablespoons of vodka (helps the ice cream to stay soft).

Oh good I was thinking the same thing.  considering organic gelatin for a replacement.   Nice to know I do not need to use it.

Naomi, are you sure about your serving sizes and number. I see about 7 cups of volume in the recipe and have made ice cream using the freeze and blitz method. I’ve never produced a product with that much over-run this way. You’re talking about about nearly doubling the volume of your product when you run it through the food processor.

Hi Missy, it's about 8 cups of unfrozen volume. That was actually my own estimate based on other recipes I made. The volume will slightly increase when it freezes but it's more accurate to say that 2/3 to 3/4 cup is a serving (not about 1 cup as previously stated). This also depends on the ingredients (eg if you use whipping cream, the ice cream will be fluffier and less dense). The best way would be to weigh the ice cream - it's the only way you'll get an accurate serving size (~ 160 g/ 5.6 oz).
