The Best Low Carb KETO Ice Cream | Chocolate Recipe

Chocolate Keto Ice Cream Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Summer hasn’t left us yet and that means…there’s still room for ice cream! Today we keep with the trend of keto recipes and make a DELICIOUS low carb chocolate keto ice cream!

Start this one with either a food processor or blender. Add into that a ripe avocado. The riper it is, the better this recipe will come out. You can test your avocado for ripeness but just kind of pressing it and if it’s somewhat soft then you’re good to go. Cut your avocado in half and use a spoon to dig it out.

Next, add in 3 ounces of unsweetened coconut milk (full fat), 6 tablespoons of heavy cream, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of erythritol or your choice sweetener, 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of xantham gum, and optionally 1 scoop of protein powder to make your macros even better or change up the flavor.

Throw your lid on and process until smooth. Once smooth take out something to pour your soon to be ice cream into it, add in whatever you want like some sugar free chocolate chips, cover it, and freeze for a few hours!

My cheap food processor:

Looks delicious, right? IT IS! I leave mine out for about 10 minutes before I’m gonna eat it and find that it gives it an even better texture.
