An ultra-creamy dairy-free keto ice cream without the coconut milk or nuts. Keto, all the way. A keto frozen festive fat bomb infused with pumpkin puree and pumpkin spices.
Hello, lovelies! I have a festive keto treat for you, just in time for American Thanksgiving. Here in Canada, we’ve passed the Thanksgiving marker and are full steam ahead to Christmas. I’m not sure if I could handle two keto turkey dinners in such a short period of time. Heck, we still have leftovers in our freezer.
If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving in a couple of days, make a batch of this keto ice cream to introduce your family to all things sugar-free, high-fat, and keto. They’ll be gushing over how deliciously awesome it is.
I topped my keto scoop with Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bites to keep it nut-free and Kevin’s with crushed pecans. If I wanted to go all out, I would have added a couple of dairy-free, keto, stevia-sweetened chocolate chips. The combination of Hemp Heart Bites with chocolate is unreal. Makes me want to melt some keto chocolate and dip all of the bites in it. Not a bad keto Christmas hostess gift idea!
Psst… I posted an extra keto video last week. Watch: 8 Low-Carb, Keto Hacks For Women.
Okay, now to the keto recipe…
The key is to blend the keto mixture until it’s frothy, a couple of minutes in your high-powdered blender will do the trick! Amazon is offering refurbished Vitamix units for under $300.
Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.
Once it’s silky smooth and the ice cubes have been added – ONE AT A TIME! Pour into your ice cream maker. As I mentioned in the notes of the keto recipe, I’ve had this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker for 4 years and it’s served me well. Granted, I don’t use it every day, but when I do pull it out, I thank myself for keeping it around all this time. When you need an ice cream maker, nothing else compares.
How long it takes depends on your ice cream maker. For this keto batch specifically, it took 15 minutes to thicken up beautifully. Adding the ice cubes makes all the difference.
If you like your keto ice cream scoopable, once complete, transfer to the loaf pan and let it harden up in the freezer.
What would use use as a keto topper for your bowl of dairy-free, keto pumpkin spice ice cream?
