Chocolate Dairy Free Low Carb Ice Cream

[wpspinner-img class="image-class"]

Want to know the perfect temperature to scoop ice cream, including sugar-free ice cream (low carb ice cream)? It’s 6-10F! Another interesting fact, ice cream bars and ice cream on sticks were invented in the 1920s. But as you can imagine, these were not sugar-free desserts. It took a while for us to find sugar substitutes and early ones, like saccharine, we now know cause cancer. But today we have great, new sweeteners that are healthy – they actually promote health. Look at xylitol, for example. Who would have thought we’d one day discover a sweetener that promotes dental health?! 

There’s no reason to crave chocolate ice cream when you’re on a ketogenic diet when you can make it yourself to conform to paleo and keto standards. This Chocolate Dairy Free Keto Ice Cream meets the specs that you are looking for.

Star this recipe as your low carb ice cream comfort food once and forever.
