To make this paleo almond butter ice cream keto, simply swap out the pure maple syrup for one of the low-carb, keto sweeteners below. Since keto is low-carb and high-fat, the rest of the ingredients stay put! 😉 Instead of maple syrup, you can use…
- Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener Drops – Zero glycemic, zero carb, sugar-free, tastes like honey, with no bitter aftertaste (which you can get with stevia). One of my favorites! Keto, Vegan, Low Glycemic, Low Carb, Paleo, Gluten-Free.
- Liquid Stevia Drops – Zero glycemic, zero calories, zero carbs. Just be careful with using more than the amount in the recipe because stevia can leave quite the aftertaste, which can be unpleasant.
- Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup – Closest in taste to the pure maple syrup listed in this recipe. Only 1 net carb and 0 grams of sugar per 2 tablespoons. Keto, Vegan, Low Glycemic, Low Carb, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free.
To make this paleo almond butter ice cream a keto ice cream recipe: During Step 1 of this recipe, start with the smaller amount of keto sweetener listed on the recipe. Blend until smooth. Taste the mixture–if it’s not sweet enough, add a few more drops. Sweeten to taste, blend thoroughly and freeze!
