This rich and creamy Keto Chocolate Ice Cream is the stuff dreams are made of! No one will notice that it is sugar-free and ideally suited for your low-carb diet. The key to scoopable low carb ice cream is using the right sweetener. You can substitute, but I don't recommend it.
Keto Chocolate Ice Cream is the Stuff Dreams are Made Of!
I know, I know.
I am supposed to post ice cream recipes in the summer, and by October, be focusing on all things fall.
But, guys, some things can't wait. And this Keto Chocolate Ice Cream is one of them.
If you like rich, creamy, and dreamy chocolate, you are going to LOVE this delicious recipe.
It is so rich, my husband said it reminded him of chocolate mousse, but with the texture of ice cream.
And let me mention that just like my Keto Vanilla Ice Cream, this low carb treat is completely scoopable. (Even straight from the freezer.)
You have to love that! The secret is using allulose instead of Swerve for the sweetener. I love Swerve and use it all the time, but if you use it in ice cream, you have to make sure you pull it out of the freezer and give it time to soften up before serving. And who has time for that when there is chocolate on the horizon?
How to Make Keto Chocolate Ice Cream with an Ice Cream Maker
1 First, bring heavy cream, allulose, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, and salt to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stir until the sweetener dissolves.
2 Next, remove the mixture from the heat and stir in chocolate, MCT oil, and vanilla. Transfer to a pitcher or other container and refrigerate overnight.
3 Finally, process the mixture according to your ice cream maker instructions. It will initially be like soft serve. For firmer ice cream, freeze for at least 2 hours. ENJOY!
