How To Make Keto Recipes and What Are Some Keto Diet Recipes

HOMEMADE KETO ICE CREAM RECIPE (SUGAR-FREE)

How to make keto ice cream with just 5 ingredients! It’s the best sugar-free low-carb ice cream recipe I’ve ever made. You won’t believe how EASY it is to make this keto-friendly ice cream recipe.

Besides keto cheesecake, the number one keto dessert that people ask me for is how to make keto ice cream. And while there are certainly a million ice cream flavors that one could make (like keto hazelnut ice cream in my Easy Keto Cookbook!), my first priority when coming up with homemade low carb ice cream was just a basic sugar-free ice cream recipe.

The important thing part of this easy keto ice cream could be the sugar-free sweetened condensed milk. (You can in fact utilize it for many other activities – get the keto sweetened condensed milk recipe by itself here.)

This keto ice cream recipe has experienced several iterations. I’ve tested it at the very least several times! You might have seen an older version of it in 2017, but I’m renewing this post in 2019 to reflect my improvements.

HOMEMADE KETO ICE CREAM INGREDIENTS

I won’t lie, I’m super worked up about this homemade keto ice cream without sugar! It only has four common ingredients for the base. Odds are, you’ve them at your house right now, in the event that you make low carb recipes on a regular basis:

  • Butter
  • Heavy cream
  • Powdered allulose
  • Vanilla extract
  • MCT oil or MCT oil powder (optional)

TIP: This keto ice cream recipe used to use powdered erythritol, but now I highly recommend powdered allulose instead. It generates more scoop-able ice cream that doesn’t get firm!

I suggest utilizing the MCT oil or powder so your no sugar ice cream doesn’t harden too much. You can omit it if you do not have it, but then you need to be extra diligent in stirring the ice cream regularly or use an ice cream maker.

HOW TO MAKE KETO ICE CREAM (WITH TIPS!)

Causeing the sugar-free ice cream recipe isn’t hard, but it will have a little while. The fundamental steps are on the recipe card, but here I’ll go into some increased detail and techniques for each:

MAKE SUGAR-FREE SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK

Here is the longest part besides the freezing. You’ll melt butter in a big saucepan, add heavy cream and powdered sweetener, and simmer for quite a long time to reduce. Reducing basically means the liquid will evaporate and the mixture will thicken, forming the condensed milk.

TIP: The key here’s to utilize a large, heavy bottom pan for only heating. A large pan means more area, therefore it may happen faster. It must be fairly thick and coat the trunk of a scoop – begin to see the photo below:

WHISK IN MCT OIL (OR MCT OIL POWDER) AND VANILLA BEAN SEEDS, IF USING

I recommend utilizing the MCT oil or powder if you’re not utilizing an ice cream maker. And honestly, it’s best to incorporate it even if you are. I only made the ingredient optional to really make the recipe more accessible, but after numerous tests, I can honestly say it improves texture.

TIP: Choose MCT oil powder if you have a vulnerable stomach, as it’s more gentle than the oil.

Vanilla bean seeds are optional, but I believe vanilla bean ice cream is completely amazing!

WHISK THE REMAINING HEAVY CREAM INTO THE CONDENSED MILK

For an older version with this homemade low carb ice cream recipe, I used to beat the cream to stiff peaks first. I really found this triggered sugar-free ice cream that was too dense and almost like butter.

This new and improved version just requires whisking in the remaining cream. It’s less work and the resulting keto ice cream is way more creamy!

FREEZE THE SUGAR-FREE ICE CREAM RECIPE

The final step is always to freeze the ice cream! Follow the method for no-churn keto ice cream with no ice cream maker.

Choose your selected method below…

HOW TO MAKE NO CHURN KETO ICE CREAM

To produce no-churn low carb ice cream, transfer the sugar-free ice cream mixture to a freezer-safe container, and freeze!

I prefer to use a glass loaf pan or two glass meal prep containers like these.

TIP: The 2nd container option above means your ice cream is going to be ready sooner! Additionally, it saves me freezer space because I could get rid of one of many containers as we undergo half the ice cream, rather than a bigger container sitting there half full.

The important thing to the no-churn sugar-free ice cream recipe is always to take it out and stir it every 30-60 minutes, particularly for the first 2 hours, and every 60-90 minutes for a few hours after that. This essentially does the work of the ice cream maker if you don’t have one. Don’t skip this step, as it breaks up ice crystals and prevents the ice cream from becoming too hard or icy.

How To Make Low Carb Homemade Keto Ice Cream

1- Melt the butter in a sizable saucepan over medium heat. Add half the heavy cream (2 cups (473 mL)) and powdered sweetener. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick, coats the back of a spoon and volume is reduced by half. It may also take away from the pan as you tilt it. (This should go faster if you are using a larger pan.)

2- Pour into a large bowl and allow to cool to room temperature. Stir in the vanilla extract, and seeds from the vanilla bean, if using. Whisk in the MCT oil or MCT oil powder if using – this really is optional when you have an ice cream maker, but strongly suggested for texture if you don’t.

3- Whisk the residual 2 cups (473 mL) heavy cream in to the sweet mixture in the bowl, until smooth.

4- For best results, chill the mixture in the fridge for at the least 4 hours or overnight. You can skip this if you really want to, nevertheless the texture is likely to be better if you chill it.

Homemade Keto Granola – LOW CARB / PALEO

This keto granola is really easy to produce with simple low carb, grain-free and paleo ingredients. It’s full of crunchy clusters and makes an ideal sugar free breakfast or snack.

EASY KETO SNACK

Homemade granola is one of our favorite snacks to make on the weekend. It all started years ago with this carrot cake granola and I enjoy switching up the flavors to help keep things fun.

REASONS TO MAKE HOMEMADE SUGAR FREE GRANOLA

Another neat thing about learning steps to make your personal homemade granola is that it is a lot cheaper and healthier than most of the store-bought cereal.

Boxed granola is normally much higher in sugar, carbs and packed with unnecessary ingredients and fillers.

Now that I’m following a grain-free diet, we’ve been making different variations of this Keto Granola. It’s filled with big crunchy clusters and is low carb, paleo, gluten-free, sugar-free and made without any “real” oats.

Plus it comes together quickly and would work if you are diabetic or carrying out a grain free or ketogenic diet.

This Keto Granola is delicious straight from the jar by the handful. And it’s equally delicious if you top it with some almond milk, coconut milk, coconut cream and a bit of berries.

And the most effective part? You can easily switch up the flavors with this low carb granola with whatever you want or have in your pantry.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE KETO GRANOLA:

  1. PREHEAT OVEN: To begin, preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Line a cooking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  3. MIX WET INGREDIENTS: In another bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, egg white & vanilla extract. Pour over nut/seed/coconut mixture and stir until moistened & combined.
  4. TRANSFER GRANOLA TO PAN: A spread mixture in a straight layer onto the prepared baking sheet and pat down flat with a spatula or your clean hands.
  5. BAKE: Bake in preheated oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden brown, rotating the pan halfway through. (DO not stir granola while baking).
  6. CHILL: Remove pan from oven and allow granola to cool completely.
  7. Once cool, break granola into clusters, & store within an airtight container.
  8. Serve with toppings of your choice.
