People with diabetes are often discouraged to have ice cream as dessert because of its high sugar content. Fortunately, many health-conscious confectioners have come to our rescue with their kitchen innovations. Here we feature five low-carb ice cream recipes that you and your family will love!
Avocado is popular in the diabetes community because it is a highly nutritious fruit with just a fraction of sugar. Considered superfood, avocados are loaded with fiber, potassium, fiber, healthy fats, and other nutrients. Use this as your base for your chocolate ice cream, and you get yummy, healthy goodness this summer.
No ice cream maker? No problem. You only need a large bowl, an electric hand mixer, and a freezer to make this cool and refreshing treat. We know some people find choco mint a strange combination, but if we tell you this recipe only contains 2g net carbs per half-cup, will you give it a shot?
This recipe uses only six ingredients that may be kitchen or pantry staples. It’s so simple to make but it tastes delicious. It requires some churning time, but you can skip that and just pour the mixture into molds for frozen pops. At 3g of net carbs per serving, this can be a go-to treat for cream cheese and peanut butter lovers.
If you prefer something creamy and fruity, this strawberry ice cream is worth a try. Strawberries are low in sugar, and they are good sources of fiber and vitamin C. The best thing about this recipe is that it only uses four ingredients: no fillers, additives, and other non-essential items. Top your serving with strawberry chunks if you prefer.
This isn’t the easiest recipe on this list as you have to make cookie dough from scratch before you can prepare it. But if you’re craving for some chocolate cookie flavor in your frozen treat, this is what you’re looking for. “I served this ice cream at a potluck, and everyone loved it and couldn’t believe it was low-carb,” says Caroline at Caroline’s Keto Kitchen.
