There's nothing like keto ice cream on a hot summers day. Mix up this creamy no churn keto vanilla ice cream and top it with keto ingredients like my keto hot fudge sauce, nuts or low carb berries such as blueberries, raspberries or blackberries!
You'll need a batch of my unsweetened condensed milk prepared ahead of time. Or you can simply start with that step. The result is well worth the time and effort.

Ingredients
Instructions
Step 1 Stovetop Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine unsweetened condensed milk, chopped cacao butter, Bocha Sweet and salt. 

  2. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring, until cacao butter is completely melted.

  3. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

    Tip: Place mixture in the fridge while you continue but do not allow it to completely chill!

Step 1 Microwave Instructions
  1. In a microwave safe bowl, heat unsweetened condensed milk for one minute on high. Milk should be hot when removed from the microwave. Stir in chopped cacao butter and mix until completely melted. If needed, return mixture to microwave for twenty seconds.

  2. Stir in bocha sweet and salt and stir until bocha sweet has dissolved.

  3. Set mixture aside to cool.

    Tip: Place mixture in the fridge while you continue but do not allow it to completely chill!

Part 2 Instructions
  1. In your mixer bowl, combine heavy whipping cream, pure vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and 10-20 drops liquid stevia. (It’s better to add too little stevia and adjust at the end than add too much!)

  2. Whip on high using your whisk attachment until soft peaks form in the whipped cream.

  3. Ensure your mixture from step 1 has cooled to room temperature.

  4. Pour ⅓ of the cacao mixture into the whipped cream. Fold in. Then add the remaining cacao mixture. Fold the cacao butter mixture gently into the whipped cream using a spatula to bring up the cacao mixture from the bottom. Fold until mixture is completely combined.

  5. Taste to ensure the ice cream is sweet enough. Add additional liquid stevia if needed.

  6. Then pour mixture into a freezable container. Cover tightly and place in freezer for 6-12 hours.

  7. Serve plain or top with keto hot fudge sauce!

The Perfect Easy No Churn Keto Vanilla Ice Cream


Creating the perfect creamy no churn keto vanilla ice cream was a bit of a challenge.

My early attempts lacked the texture of a true churned ice cream and often turned out gritty.

Turning to my go-to resource for cooking ‘hacks', I learned a trick from America's Test Kitchen.

In a no-churn ice cream episode they used white chocolate chips and condensed milk.

I had to figure out what keto ingredients I could substitute for these.

After some trial and error–I found that pure cacao butter was the perfect substitute for white chocolate chips.

And…I figured out a simple method for cooking up my own unsweetened condensed milk. Get the recipe for that here.

The result is a melt-in-your mouth no-churn ice cream that you won't believe you can have on a keto diet!

It's the perfect “fat bomb” and a way to get your fats up higher!

What Substitutions Will Work?



Keto Sweetener Substitutions

If you haven't already tried Bocha Sweet, I highly recommend you do.

It's a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the Kabocha pumpkin.

Most alternative sweeteners will work in this recipe. You can use Monk Fruit Sweetener, Xylitol or a blend like Swerve. However, these options can also crystallize and leave a less than pleasant result.

I mix Bocha Sweet with Liquid Stevia in this recipe because I find that the combination provides a really fantastic flavor profile when used together!

How To Make Homemade Easy No Churn Keto Vanilla Ice Cream



After I released my original Keto Vanilla Ice Cream, I immediately had requests from friends of mine who didn’t want to purchase an ice cream maker to come up with a no churn option.

This recipe uses homemade condensed milk which I make using full fat coconut milk. It gives the finished ice cream a subtle coconut undertone. So, if you don’t like coconut you may want to add additional flavorings.

Find the recipe for the homemade condensed milk here. Unsweetened Condensed Milk (Dairy Free)
