Think going Keto means giving up all things a la mode? Think again! With this Keto almond milk vanilla ice cream. Without eggs and full-fat dairy in this ice-cream, you are relying only on the frozen almond milk to deliver the creamy texture. It does the job well, but this ice-cream is best served directly after churning. Have a scoop after dinner for dessert or get fancy with the toppings for a special treat.

Five Things to Know About Almond Milk

  1. Almond milk is one of the top non-dairy “milks” in the United States and it can be found in nearly every big grocery store across the country (and many small grocery stores too).
  2. Like whole almonds, almond milk is packed with vitamin E and several other important nutrients. There is about 16 mgs of vitamin E in a cup of commercially produced unsweetened almond milk, which is 100% of your daily recommended intake. [1, 2]
  3. Almond milk is a popular substitute for cows’ milk in part because it is soy free. There are many good reasons to avoid processed soy products, like soy milk, on the Keto diet. Almond milk is a good substitute which can be found almost anywhere you would find soy milk.
  4. Read the labels carefully. You don’t only have to watch out for sugar, there are other undesirable ingredients to keep an eye out for too. Many commercially produced almond milks have additives, like thickeners and stabilizers, in them. Definitely not what you want in your milk!
  5. You can make your own almond milk! Simply take unsalted almonds, soak them in water and puree them in the blender. Then strain the pulp and voila, almond milk. The longer you soak the nuts, the creamier your almond milk will be. You can even use unsalted almond butter! Here’s a recipe if you want to give it a try.
