30 Tastebud-Tingling Keto Ice Cream Recipes

Ice cream is the perfect summertime treat.

I often find myself craving something sweet and refreshing when the weather gets hot and I’m sure plenty of other keto folks do too. But store-bought ice cream is loaded with sugar and dairy, so you can’t just grab a pint at your local store.

That’s why we’ve made a list of Ketogenic ice cream recipes – there are colorful fruit creamsicles for the big kids, a grown-up chocolate gelato and even kombucha popsicles for the adventurous eaters. Of course, there are classic favorites like mint choc chip and vanilla too!

A few things to watch out for when making your own Keto ice cream:

  1. Some of the recipes use “dark chocolate.” Use 100% chocolate to avoid all sugars.
  2. Don’t overeat. These recipes are healthier and low-carb friendly, but they do still have some carbs. Even 100% dark chocolate contains net carbs. And some of the recipes use berries or coconut cream, which also contain some net carbs.
  3. Use an ice cream maker if you can. This will make your life so much easier (otherwise you’ll have to keep going to the freezer to stir it so it doesn’t form into a big block of ice).
  4. Use a sweetener like stevia to add a touch of sweetness to your ice creams.

It’s easier to make than you think to make your own Keto ice cream at home and I’d recommend making a big batch. That way, you’ll have some on hand when guests come over or you’d just like to treat yourself!

Ingredients: heavy whipping cream, unsweetened almond milk, egg yolks, green food coloring, Torani S.F. Peppermint flavored syrup, mint extract, stevia powder or Splenda.

Mint ice cream is the perfect way to get cool on a hot day! This recipe is better suited to an ice cream maker if you have one, but don’t fret if not. You can still make it in the freezer, but you do have to stir it every 15 minutes or so and sadly, it won’t end up as creamy using that method.

Ingredients: eggs, mascarpone cheese or cream cheese, unsalted butter, vanilla stevia drops, monk fruit liquid extract, vanilla extract, cream of tartar.

Who could resist frozen custard ice cream? This unique recipe from Lisa at Low Carb Yum is definitely one you have to try at least once. This is another recipe which will yield better results if you have access to an ice cream maker.

Not familiar with monk fruit?  Dr.  Amy Myers, M.D. explains, “Monk fruit…derives its sweetness from the natural antioxidants in the fruit. It has a glycemic index of zero and can be used as a 1:1 substitute for sugar.”

Mint Ice Cream

What could be nicer on a hot day than a bowl of mint ice cream? Guaranteed to cool you down, and with the mint extract it has a wonderfully fresh taste. You can even recreate the green ‘color’ by adding the mint leaves, meaning there are no artificial additives here. The chips made from carob are a great substitute for chocolate if you decide to add these, but they are not essential.

Please don’t panic about using the avocado in this recipe – you won’t be able to taste it and it just lends a fabulous creaminess to the texture! Homemade ice cream can be made to suit your own palate, so taste it before freezing and that gives you the chance to adjust the amount of sweetener you need. It also guarantees that your dessert has no hidden ‘nasties’!

This is a good basic recipe for vanilla ice cream if you don’t have an ice cream maker. It allows you to make delicious ice cream which you can add different ingredients to if required. You could also add a Keto sauce to go with it. Again, it is a good idea to taste the mixture before freezing so that you can adjust the amount of sweetener.

Ingredients: coconut oil, almond milk, MCT oil, organic eggs, organic egg yolks, vanilla bean, Erythritol, Stevia Glycerite (optional), unsweetened cocoa powder, sea salt.

The ice cream in this recipe is rich and full of flavor, making it a great dessert option for the whole family. It is a good idea when adding the sweetener to taste the mix often so you don’t over-sweeten. It is unusual to have salt in a sweet recipe, but it actually sets off the flavor of the chocolate really well.

Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream

– The Nourishing Gourmet

Ingredients: full fat coconut milk, sweetener of choice (preferably Stevia), vanilla extract.

You couldn’t possibly imagine an easier ice cream recipe than this one – only three ingredients! You can rustle up a batch of this in seconds and transform it in your ice cream maker to give a soft-serve option to accompany any dessert. You could even add this to your favorite iced tea for a fabulous float, a great idea if people drop in for a visit.

– Yummy Inspirations

Ingredients: milk of choice, cream (almond, cashew, or coconut milk), sweetener of choice (preferably Stevia), salt, vanilla extract.

This Keto recipe gives you a fabulous basic vanilla ice cream that tastes just as good as the dairy-based one. But this recipe doesn’t have any of the nasty ingredients found in some store-bought ice creams. To this dish you could add other Keto ingredients you like, like chopped nuts, cacao nibs, or vanilla extract, or just serve it as it is! If you are giving a dinner party you could even add a little alcohol, which gives you a softer set and avoids the ice cream turning rock-hard in the freezer.

Blueberry Coconut Soft Serve

Ingredients: coconut milk, blueberries.

Here is the perfect recipe for a sweet summery treat if you have friends or family dropping in unexpectedly! Keep a bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer and you can make up this delicious fruity snack in seconds.

Ingredients: coconut milk, frozen fruit, liquid Stevia.

Using coconut milk means these treats are dairy-free, yet they still have a creamy texture. If you are using fruit in season you may find you don’t actually need the sweetener, but just taste as you go to find the right level. Strawberries and blueberries make a great flavor for these, but if you want to bulk up the texture you could add some shredded coconut too.

This is another recipe that uses full fat coconut milk to give the creamy texture that we all look for in a popsicle. Even though you are not adding any sweetener, the vanilla and chocolate give it a richness of flavor that will be appealing to even the children.
