Looking for a cool way to zap a sweet tooth without the sugar? I’ve got 16 keto ice cream recipes, full of flavor and fatty goodness with creamy dairy-free options!
What’s the best way to enjoy a fat bomb? A bowl of ice cream sounds like it’s pretty high up there.
I couldn’t let summer pass without compiling a bunch of drool-worthy ice cream recipes. And who am I kidding? Ice cream is a year-round treat.
I mean, there’s a flavor for every occasion; I even included a pumpkin spice ice cream recipe to help us transition into fall.
Because seasons change, but ice cream is eternal.
Rise and shine, it’s ice cream for breakfast time! Swap out the heavy cream for full fat coconut milk to make this dairy-free and you’ve got a caffeinated treat that you can enjoy any time of day!
A classic vanilla ice cream, you know, without all the junk. Enjoy on its own, or top with roasted almonds, fresh strawberries, or serve in a glass and top with a stevia root beer for a keto root beer float! Get this recipe and more delicious options in my paperback, The Keto Diet.
Not just keto ice cream, but keto chocolate chip cookie dough — is this real life?! Swap cream for coconut cream to make this dairy free.
Matcha for a smooth caffeine buzz without the jitters, protein to keep you fueled, and fat to keep you satiated. Who says ice cream can’t be a balanced meal?
Coffee cocoa creaminess, for the days where coffee ice cream just won’t cut it. Make it dairy-free and use coconut cream instead of heavy cream.
This recipe is like the poster child for keto ice cream. Swap out the heavy cream for coconut cream, and use my favorite butter flavored coconut oil in place of butter and you’ve got a wonderfully fatty keto ice cream.
No ice cream maker required, just a mason jar and a bit of time. Don’t skimp on the chocolate chips for an added crunch. Make it with coconut cream for a dairy-free option!
Homemade keto Oreos crumbles, stirred into a dreamy ice cream. Because sometimes you have a chocolate craving and an ice cream flavor at the same time! Swap the heavy cream for coconut cream, boom, dairy-free.
Slightly sweet, pepperminty goodness with a bit of crunch from cacao nibs, this recipe is ready in a few minutes and gone just as fast.
Swirls of rich fudgy chocolate, swirled into a beautifully creamy chocolate ice cream. Chocolate on chocolate, it’s win-win.
44 grams of fat in one serving of ice cream, with less than 2 net carbs — this fat bomb is the stuff of keto dreams! Subtle flavor from cacao butter, vanilla bean, coconut oil, and a bit of keto-friendly sweetener… sweet!
Can you imagine using fresh summer strawberries in this recipe? I don’t think it could get much better than that. Use coconut cream in place of cream for the subtle hint of a tropical vacation in your ice cream bowl.
I’d make this recipe with almond butter because peanuts and I aren’t the best of friends, but you do you. Dairy-free works for me, so I’d swap heavy cream for coconut cream, too. Either way, nut butter and chocolate make one awesome pairing.
Avocados and ice cream? Just trust me on this one — the avocado adds an extra layer of creaminess, and it’s just so satisfying. Swap the cream for coconut cream and you’ve got a superfood sundae in the making.
There’s something so satisfying about the gorgeous raspberry streaks in this ice cream! A hint of lemon really brightens the flavor. Make it dairy-free by using coconut cream instead of heavy cream, and if the addition of alcohol isn’t your thing, you can do without — it just helps to keep the mix from crystalizing.
As promised! This recipe is inspired by the flavors of fall, and it’s a great alternative to a pumpkin spice latte with no sugar and a hefty boost of fat.
Okay, I know I said 16 ice cream recipes, but this one is a BONUS! I figured you wouldn’t mind ;)
