Dr Jockers Comments:

This keto ice cream recipe is dairy free, sugar free and low-carb.  It is full of fat burning ingredients that help reduce inflammation throughout your body and support your bodies ability to produce great energy and mental clarity.

Most people think that you can never enjoy a great bowl of ice cream on the ketogenic diet, but I think this recipe is just as good as any store bought ice cream.  It is also fairly easy to make since it only requires 6 ingredients.

Coconut fats are rich in medium chain fats that help the body to burn fat for fuel more effectively.  Coconut is the most ketogenic food on the planet, with 15% of its fats turning to ketones very quickly in the body.

Feel free to use whatever natural sweetener you would like, but to make this ketogenic, it needs to be a low-carb sweetener such as stevia, monk fruit, erythritol, xylitol or the keto maple syrup I listed in the ingredients.

I prefer using stevia or monk fruit as my main sweeteners as sugar alcohols like erythritol and xylitol upset my digestive system.  Some people tolerate these quite well though and if so, you can certainly use them.

  1. I don’t have an ice cream maker. Is there something I could do to the mixture to achieve the same goal without the ice cream maker? It sounds delightful!

    1. There is nothing that really substitutes for an ice cream maker. You might try putting the cold mixture in a vitamix or high quality blender and add ice… but it will be different…but probably very good.
