EASY KETO CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM
Over the last year, many readers have asked if you can enjoy ice cream on a keto diet.
While both these recipes are keto and low carb, they actually contain no dairy whatsoever. An eggless chocolate ice cream? You bet. This means that this smooth, creamy and easy frozen dessert is also paleo, vegan and dairy-free!
Today, we’re going on the dark side with some dark chocolate action happening!
The second most common question is can I have ice cream on a diet?
Everyone views the word ‘diet’ differently. I know people who enjoy Ben and Jerry’s ice cream daily (while losing weight!) and others who enjoy Halo Top Creamery ice cream daily (while on bulking meal plans).
Speaking of Halo Top Ice Cream, I need to do a homemade Halo Top Creamery recipe soon!
It is individualized, but I am ALL for having ice cream on a diet, especially if it happens to be guilt-free, healthy and secretly protein-packed!
How can I make homemade keto ice cream?

You only need four healthy ingredients and less than 5 minutes prep time. The hard part is waiting for the homemade chocolate ice cream to firm up, but trust me, it is worth it!
How to make keto chocolate ice cream in a blender
Making chocolate ice cream in a blender is really simple- You just follow the specific process of each ingredient and blend until smooth and creamy.
Canned Coconut Milk or Carton Coconut Milk
Be sure to use coconut milk from a can and NOT one from a carton.
Canned coconut milk (or the brand I use) has a thicker consistency and is required to be chilled in the fridge. This is necessary, as the cream separates from the coconut water, allowing for a thicker, creamier, keto ice cream.
Carton coconut milk tends to have a more watery consistency, and you’ll find the ice cream to be rock solid when it comes time to scoop.
If you want to enjoy your keto chocolate ice cream soft-serve style, you are welcome to use any dairy or non-dairy milk of choice.
Canned Coconut Milk or Canned Coconut Cream
Canned coconut milk differs from canned coconut cream. The coconut cream has a much creamier, richer and thicker consistency. I haven’t tried this keto chocolate coconut milk ice cream with the cream.
This healthy low carb chocolate ice cream isn’t just your guilt-free dessert or sugar free dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth. It’s a high protein ice cream recipe you can swap out your protein shake for- My personal trainer has given it as an option for my post-workout snack!
Low Carb Keto Chocolate Ice Cream (Paleo, Vegan, No Churn)
For the keto option
- Lightly grease a loaf pan and place in the freezer.
- In a high-speed blender, add all your ingredients and until thick and creamy. Do not over blend.
- Pour the ice cream mixture into the frozen loaf pan and smooth out evenly. To ensure the mixture doesn't become too icy, mix every 30 minutes or so, for the first hour.
- Once firm, lightly wet an ice cream scoop and scoop servings into bowls. If you don't add the optional vodka, allow the ice cream to thaw for 15 minutes prior.
