Nothing can beat making your own sugar free ice cream in minutes. This creamy 3 minute keto strawberry ice cream is made in a Vitamix blender.
If you have an ice cream maker, another brand of high speed blender or even a food processor you can use that as well, although it will take longer and I haven’t tested the recipe using those tools. Let me know in the comments if you do!
Top with some homemade sugar free whipped cream made with the leftover heavy whipping cream for added creaminess.
This will yield about 4 cups of ice cream, for 8 servings at 2.2 net carbs per 1/2 cup serving.
5 Minute Strawberry and Cream Ice Cream - Keto and Sugar FreePrint Recipe
- 4 cups of whole frozen strawberries, unsweetened
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 7 Tbsp powdered* sweetener (suggested: Lakanto Monk Fruit, powdered)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Put all ingredients in a high powered blender like a Vitamix.
On the lowest setting, turn on machine and use the tamper to press down the strawberries. Keep using the tamper, and mix the ice cream for 2 minutes - or until all strawberries have been pureed.
If you overmix, the ice cream can become too smooth. In this case, put it in the freezer to harden before eating.
You can make your own powdered sweetener by pulsing granular sweetener like erythritol in a food processor or blender. The success of this recipe will depend partly on the size of your Vitamix container. I have a 64 ounce container, and to make the ice cream blend correctly I need to use a minimum of 4 cups of strawberries. If you have a 32 ounce container, you can probably get away with halving this recipe if you wish.
*net carbs are calculated by subtracting fiber and sugar alcohols. The sweetener was not added to this calculation. If you use a sweetener like Swerve, Lakanto Monk Fruit or erythritol – these numbers should not change. Remember, with sugar alcohols like erythritol, you can subtract the sugar alcohols to get your net carb count. If you are someone who counts your sugar alcohols, then add the carbs back in to fit your calculations.
