How To Make Keto Ice Cream At Home

Making your keto Ice cream at home isn’t a difficult task with the right tools. We use a high-quality, affordable ice cream maker that you can get here.. In fact, the machine is so popular that our Gerris mother also has one.

Creating your own low carb ice cream ensures that you know exactly what goes into it. You avoid preservatives, additives and, of course, it’s sugar-free to keep your Ice Cream high fat, low carb and keto friendly.

Authentic, rich and creamy ice cream is based on a Creme Anglaise, a French pouring custard, traditionally made with egg yolks, sugar, and milk.

We made our Creme Anglaise extra creamy by swapping the milk for LCHF heavy cream, to increase the fat content and lower the number of carbohydrates, resulting in a low-carb keto ice cream that will impress even the most assuming dessert connoisseur.

You can make adjustments to the batch sizes and also switch to US imperial measuring system in our interactive recipe card below.

Instructions:

  1. Heat the heavy cream and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat until it reaches 50C/122F, then remove from the heat and allow to cool to 40C/104F.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks with the erythritol until the yolks are pale yellow, add the cocoa and mix well.
  3. Pour half a cup of the warm cream into the eggs and mix well, add the remaining cream and ensure that all the eggs and cream are combined. (make sure the cream is only warm not hot) If the cream is too hot, it will begin to cook the eggs, and you will have small lumps of egg yolk in your ice cream.
  4. Pour the mix back into the saucepan that was used to heat the cream and place over low heat to thicken.
  5. To thicken the custard, use a low heat and stir continuously. (take your time) If the mixture heats too quickly or unevenly, the eggs will cook and scramble. This step can take 10-20 minutes.
    The custard will be ready when the mixture coats the back of the spoon without dripping off.
  6. Pour the custard into container and place in the fridge, to help it cool quicker I recommend giving it a stir every 10 minutes. Depending on the size of your container it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour to completely chill.
  7. Pour the cold custard into your ice cream churner and let the machine work its magic. You will have delicious ice cream in under 30 minutes.
  8. When the ice cream is the consistency of soft serve ice cream pour it into a container and place in the freezer, leave it for at least 15 minutes to harden up and then enjoy!

We garnished our Keto Ice Cream with Sugar-Free Chocolate Chipsyou could add nuts or grated sugar-free chocolate and work it through your mix if you like.

If you’re for some more cooking, a delicious tweak is to crumble our Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies or Chocolate Macadamia Nut Fudge in with your Keto Ice Cream. Or for a delicious dairy-free option try our Dairy-Free Coconut Keto Ice Cream.
