Low Carb Dairy Free Very Berry Ice Cream


Did you know there is actually a day set apart to celebrate ice cream? National Ice Cream Day was declared a holiday by President Ronald Reagan back in 1984. Since then several big chains across the country have been offering free ice cream the third Sunday of July to pay homage to ice cream. Which is why I decided to share my low carb recipe to our readers to avoid caving into a large scoop of sugar laden ice cream.

Recently, I acquired a lovely ice cream maker just in time to join in on the celebrations. Can I tell you how much fun it’s been to experiment making low carb ice cream in my new machine? How I survived without a proper ice cream maker for so many years, is beyond me.  Summer is open season for ice cream, who am I kidding we eat ice cream around these parts all year round. And we don’t even need a national day dedicated to ice cream to do so.

You should know that not having an ice cream maker did not deter me in making low carb ice cream in the past. In fact, I have already shared a few of them here. However, for a while now I wanted an authentic ice cream texture that only a machine can produce. So when this ice cream maker arrived I was excited to get in my kitchen and start creating.

I wanted to make a dairy free option since I have been trying to reduce my dairy intake to see if it further assists me on my journey to wellness. Can I say that going dairy free has proved more challenging than I thought? Thankfully, this dairy free low carb ice cream didn’t disappoint.


Do you have an ice cream maker that has not seen the day of light in a while? Give this simple recipe a try and enjoy the process of making your own healthy ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 can of full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup of sliced berries (I used a combination of strawberries, blue berries and cranberries)
  • ½ an ounce of 85% cocoa chocolate bar cut into tiny pieces
  • ½ cup of Swerve or your favorite sugar-free sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Slice your one cup of mixed berries into small pieces. I added cranberries to my mix since I always freeze a few bags in the fall to be able to enjoy in the summer. Toss your berries with lemon juice and sugar substitute. Add the one can of full-fat coconut milk and chocolate pieces and mix well.
  2. Add your low carb ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and use according to your machine’s manufacture instructions. Note that this ice cream will not remain creamy if leftovers are frozen.
