Like Regular Ice Cream But Better
With the popularization of the ketogenic diet on the rise, there is no shortage of keto-friendly products (and keto food delivery services) flooding the market. Many of these happen to be keto-friendly ice cream. However, a lot of these packaged “diet” ice creams are full of weird gums, additives, and sweeteners that can be an irritant to the gut. But because we didn’t want to give up ice cream completely on the keto diet, we came up with this keto strawberry ice cream recipe!
Made with just 5 ingredients and requiring just 10 minutes of your time, this keto ice cream recipe makes two servings that are 468 calories each, with 7 grams net carbs, 45 grams of fat, and 3 grams of protein.
Unsweetened full fat coconut milk is the base of this keto strawberry ice cream recipe and the reason for its creaminess! The milk is transferred to an ice cube tray and frozen overnight, and then blended in a food processor or blender until smooth. In addition to providing the texture and healthy fats in this recipe, coconut milk contributes towards heart health, is rich in fiber, and high in electrolytes. Freeze-dried strawberries are used instead of fresh strawberries in this recipe, yielding a rich strawberry flavor that is a great source of vitamin C. Liquid stevia is used instead of traditional sweeteners in this strawberry ice cream recipe, making it a keto-friendly dessert, and a hint of vanilla extract is added for an extra boost of flavor.
This keto strawberry ice cream recipe makes two servings, so the perfect amount to split with a friend! The texture of the ice cream is best right when it’s made, so we don’t recommend storing this in the fridge for the future. You can, however, make an awesome, keto-friendly ice cream sundae with keto-friendly toppings like coconut butter drizzle, slivered almonds, and unsweetened whipped cream!
