I always like to make some low carb ice cream when it is hot out. The normal ice cream that you can buy in the store usually contains a lot of additional ingredients that are not good for you. They usually also contain a lot of carbohydrates which are not good for you if you are on a low carb diet. It is also very easy to make your own low carb ice cream so there is no big reason to not do so.
In order to help you with making your own low carb ice cream I have put together the different recipes that I normally use in one place so you can also make your own ice cream. The recipes are all very easy and only takes a few minutes to make. You need some waiting time to make them cold but after that all you need to do is to enjoy your own low carb ice cream.
Fruit low carb ice cream
The most simple and best recipe is to mix some low carbohydrate fruit together with some heavy whipping cream. All you need is a mixer to prepare this simple ice cream recipe. I usually use strawberries or blueberries to make my ice cream but you could use any other fruit you like. Just remember to use fruit that is low on carbohydrates.
Take the fruit and put them in your mixer, then you simply add the heavy whipping cream and mix everything together until it is well blended. Put everything in the freezer for around 60 to 80 minutes and then it is ready to enjoy. The low carb ice cream is best if you serve it together with some small pieces of the fruit.
Protein low carb ice cream
The second ice cream that I like to make is also very simple and only takes a few minutes to prepare. I start out with 1 scoop of whey protein and mix it with around 3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream. Mix everything until it starts to get a little thick and then put it in the freezer for 60 to 80 minutes.
The good thing with protein powder is that you can use different kind and with different flavors. My favorites are strawberry and chocolate but try out some different ones to find the one you like the best.
There you have it, some very simple and easy recipes for low carb ice cream that you can make within 5 minutes.
