This decadent chocolate keto ice cream recipe yields rich ‘n creamy homemade keto ice cream. Just 1 net carb for delicious keto ice cream!
Back when we lived in Boston, Erik and I started the keto diet. And by start, I mean we stopped, then started, then stopped again because we didn’t think it was realistic. Then we started again because we-weren’t-quitters-gosh-dang-it!!
And let me tell you (as if you didn’t already know this), one of the hardest things to give up was ice cream. It was hard friggin’ impossible to find yummy keto ice cream, and even more impossible to even dream about keto ice cream that wasn’t a bajillion dollars a pint.
With the daunting ice-cream-less future in our sights, we were like, “We gotta make keto ice cream and we gotta take it seriously!!” No mistakes, no typos (we see you, “keto.ice cream” and “keto icecream”), no inedible keto ice cream creations.
So what do we have today? A chocolate keto ice cream recipe to end all chocolate keto ice cream recipes (but in a less dire-sounding way). This homemade keto ice cream is soooo good.
What does this Homemade Keto Ice Cream Taste Like?
The Taste & Texture: imagine rich and creamy keto chocolate ice cream with deep chocolate flavor and velvety sweetness all throughout. Allow your chocolate keto ice cream to thaw just the right amount and your ice cream scoop will cut right through the bucket like butter.
How to Make Chocolate Keto Ice Cream
With just a few steps, you’ll be able to easily make the best homemade keto ice cream.
Plan ahead by 1 day. Grab the freezer bowl from your favorite ice cream maker and pop it in the freezer to chill.
Day of, add all chocolate keto ice cream ingredients to a food processor. That includes: coconut milk, coconut cream, raw cacao powder, keto maple syrup, low carb sweetener, vanilla and almond extract. Blend until well mixed, scraping down the sides of the processor as needed.
Pour the keto ice cream mixture into the ice cream maker. Churn, baby, churn! 😉 Churn the ice cream until it’s firm.
Enjoy the best homemade keto ice cream ever! If you like it firm, go ahead and freeze it for a few hours, then scoop and enjoy.
Simple Keto Ingredients & Tools for the Best Keto Ice Cream Recipe
Unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk is one of my favorite keto ingredients to use when making homemade keto ice cream. It’s low carb, high fat and low in sugar. I use coconut milk to add creaminess to today’s chocolate keto ice cream as well as my coconut milk ice cream recipe.
Coconut cream is a wonderful keto-friendly ingredient because it’s low carb and provide a rich source of healthy fat. 
After scouring the internet & using All of the Keto Sweeteners Known to Humankind, I can assure you, these are two of my faves. Pleasant sweetness, no weirdo aftertastes. There’s another keto maple syrup that I love, but for this recipe, I stick to this particular low carb sweetener for the just-right sweetness.
This is the exact ice cream maker that I’ve been using for years and years. Yep, I even bought two new ones this year! (It’s basically an ice cream factory at my house.) It’s affordable, easy-to-use, nice-looking (doesn’t hurt) and works beautifully.
Rich ‘n creamy chocolate keto ice cream with deep chocolate flavor & velvety sweetness throughout. Just 1 net carb per serving.
Whether you got here by searching “keto.ice cream” or “keto icecream” or “keto ice cream”, I’m glad you made it here.
