HOMEMADE KETO ICE CREAM RECIPE (SUGAR-FREE)

Steps 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’s to make this keto-friendly ice cream recipe.

Aside from keto cheesecake, the top keto dessert that people ask me for is how to make keto ice cream. And while there are always a million ice cream flavors that you might make (like keto hazelnut ice cream within my Easy Keto Cookbook!), my first priority when making homemade low carb ice cream was just a basic sugar-free ice cream recipe.

The main element part with this easy keto ice cream may be the sugar-free sweetened condensed milk. (You can actually put it to use for most other items – get the keto sweetened condensed milk recipe on its own here.)

This keto ice cream recipe has been through several iterations. I’ve tested it at the very least a dozen times! You may have seen an older version of it back 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. Chances are, you have them at your home right now, if 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, however now I highly recommend powdered allulose instead. It generates more scoop-able ice cream that doesn’t get firm!

I highly recommend utilising the MCT oil or powder so that the no sugar ice cream doesn’t harden too much. You are able to omit it if there isn’t 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 does have a little while. The fundamental steps are on the recipe card, but here I’ll enter some more detail and methods for each:

MAKE SUGAR-FREE SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK

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

TIP: The key here’s to employ a large, heavy bottom pan for even heating. A sizable pan means more surface area, so it could happen faster. It should be fairly thick and coat the back 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 utilising the MCT oil or powder if you’re not having an ice cream maker. And honestly, it’s best to include it even if you are. I only made the ingredient optional to help make the recipe more accessible, but after numerous tests, I could honestly say it improves texture.

TIP: Select MCT oil powder when you yourself have a vulnerable stomach, as it’s more gentle compared to the oil.

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

WHISK THE REMAINING HEAVY CREAM INTO THE CONDENSED MILK

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

This new and improved version just demands whisking in the rest of the 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 to freeze the ice cream! Follow the technique for no-churn keto ice cream lacking any ice cream maker.

Choose your chosen 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 like to make use of a glass loaf pan or two glass meal prep containers like these.

TIP: The next container option above means your ice cream is likely to be ready sooner! Additionally it saves me freezer space because I will get rid of among the containers once we go through half the ice cream, rather than a larger container sitting there half full.

The important thing to the no-churn sugar-free ice cream recipe is to remove it and stir it every 30-60 minutes, specifically for the first 2 hours, and every 60-90 minutes for a couple hours after that. This essentially does the job of the ice cream maker if there isn’t one. Don’t skip this step, because it breaks up ice crystals and prevents the ice cream from becoming way too hard or icy.

How To Make Low Carb Homemade Keto Ice Cream

1- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add 50% of 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, before the mixture is thick, coats the trunk of a scoop and volume is reduced by half. It will also pull away from the pan as you tilt it. (This should go faster if you are using a more substantial 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 highly recommended for texture if you don’t.

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

4- For best results, chill the mixture in the fridge for at the very least 4 hours or overnight. You are able to skip this task if you actually want to, however the texture will undoubtedly be better in the event that you chill it.

Homemade Keto Granola – LOW CARB / PALEO

This keto granola is so easy to produce with simple low carb, grain-free and paleo ingredients. It’s packed with crunchy clusters and makes the perfect sugar free breakfast or snack.

EASY KETO SNACK

Homemade granola is one of our favorite snacks to make on the weekend. Everything 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 how to make your own homemade granola is that it’s a lot cheaper and healthier than the majority of the store-bought cereal.

Boxed granola is normally greater in sugar, carbs and full of unnecessary ingredients and fillers.

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

Plus it comes together quickly and is suitable if you are diabetic or following 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 little bit of berries.

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

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE KETO GRANOLA:

  1. PREHEAT OVEN: To start, preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Line a cooking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. COMBINE DRY INGREDIENTS: In a sizable bowl, combine all the nuts, seeds, coconut, sweetener, spices & salt.
  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 in a airtight container.
  8. Serve with toppings of one’s choice.

Homemade Keto Enchilada Sauce – Low Carb & Mildly Spicy

Our Low Carb Enchilada Sauce is far higher in fat than supermarket sauces, and much tastier. This low-carb enchilada sauce is mildly spicy but easily made hotter by adding additional cayenne or fresh chilies.

Ingredients

How To Make Homemade Keto Enchilada Sauce

  1. Place the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add all ingredients except the tomato puree and saute for 3 minutes, or until fragrant.
  3. Add the tomato puree and stir well.
  4. Simmer the sauce for 5 minutes to infuse the spices. Add a little water if you want your sauce to be thinner and adjust the seasoning to your taste.
  5. Use immediately or pour into a heatproof jar and store in the fridge for approximately 2 weeks.

Carbs In Enchilada Sauce

The lowest carb count of any standard enchilada sauce at the supermarket is 6.6g of carbs per 100g and many had sugar added so this will depend on where brand you buy.

Shop bought enchilada sauce ingredients include modified corn starch, along with sugar, soybean oil, hydrolyzed soy protein, and corn protein. Our Keto Enchilada Sauce contains none of it.
This keto enchilada sauce recipe makes approximately 14oz/400g of Low Carb Enchilada Sauce, or 8 servings. 1 serving is 1/4 cup which has 2.5g net carbs.
Store your leftover Keto Enchilada Sauce in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for 3 months.
