Strawberry Low Carb Ice Cream Recipe on Metal Tray (No Ice Cream Maker)

In the dog days of summer, there’s nothing quite like ice cream to cool you down. Chocolate soft serve with rainbow jimmies used to be my flavor of choice before going keto. The funny thing is, even before finishing a medium-sized cone I’d start to feel sick – nauseous and dizzy – yet I pushed through. It was a rare event when I threw out a cone, despite it making me feel ill. After going keto I realized I can still enjoy dessert, just in a more nourishing form of itself, like this Strawberry Low Carb Ice Cream.

Can You Eat Ice Cream on a Keto Diet?

We are firm believers that anything can be re-made into a keto-friendly version of itself. Ice cream is no different! Use keto-friendly ingredients and avoid sugar or sugary fruits, such as bananas. Lastly, calculate the macros to see if it fits into your eating plan!

How to Make Low Carb Ice Cream

Ingredients for low carb ice cream:

Make sure all ingredients are low carb-friendly, and be careful of your sweeteners (we like liquid stevia for this recipe). We recommend organic strawberries for this Strawberry Low Carb Ice Cream. However, don’t forget the healthy fat! Grass-fed dairy, such as heavy whipping cream, cream cheese, and/or yogurt, as well as organic coconut milk are good options. If you want to go with a custard base, you can use heavy cream and egg yolks.

How to Make Easy Ice Cream (aka Instant Ice Cream)

Our favorite method for making ice cream fast is to start with a frozen base (such as frozen berries, or a keto custard mixture that’s been frozen in an ice cube tray), and blend it up in a high-speed blender (we love our Vitamix!). Because the base is already frozen, you’ll have a bowl of your favorite flavor of low carb ice cream in about five minutes.
