Chocolate keto ice cream is a guilty pleasure for me. Going on the Ketogenic diet I was scared to sacrifice ice cream. So having a homemade version that fits my keto lifestyle was a must. This is my tried and true keto chocolate ice cream with ice cream maker. It offers a really rich and creamy texture, that won't disappoint. 

Keto Chocolate Ice Cream 

Just seven ingredients are all you need. Since you are using an ice cream machine you will have eggs in this ice cream recipe. This adds a velvety texture that you don't get with no-churn ice cream recipes.

What Could I Use To Make Keto Ice Cream

Reach for unsweetened chocolate, almond milk, and of course your choice of sweetener. With those three ingredient changes, you can go from a regular recipe to low carb chocolate ice cream! Then follow the directions on cooking the mixture then pouring into your ice cream machine that will handle the rest. This isn't a dairy free recipe since you use heavy cream in it.

Is Keto Ice Cream Tasty 

I think it is! You really don't notice much difference than regular ice cream. I do find sweeteners leave a bit of an after-taste and that is the only big difference I would say you get from keto ice cream. 

Tips For Scooping Ice Cream 

You have to be patient, allow the ice cream to sit on the counter for five minutes or so. Take your ice cream scoop and place in hot water, and let it set. Then dry it off and go to spooning up ice cream. It will take a lot less arm work if you follow these tips.

How Long Can You Store Homemade Ice Cream In Freezer

After you whip up your ice cream and it is ready to serve, you can then store your ice cream in the freezer for up to three months. Just make sure you store it properly to prevent ice crystals from forming on the top of the ice cream. You can buy freezer friendly ice cream containers online.

  3. NOTE- it is important to slowly add the eggs and continuously whisk so the eggs do not scramble. 
  4. Continue whisking and increase heat to medium. Cook for 1-2 mins. 
  5. Remove from heat and add chocolate.  Mix until fully melted. 
  6. Pour into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. About 4-6 hrs.

Make it a Keto Wendy's Frosty

To make this delicious hard serve chocolate ice cream either soft serve or like a keto Wendy's frosty simply pull the ice cream out part way through freezing. Whip a small amount of heavy cream into it, use as little or as much as you would like. The desired texture is up to you.

Once you whip the cream and you have achieved the consistency you want either enjoy immediately or refreeze.
