Ingredients

  • 2 2 egg yolkegg yolks
  • 1¼ cups 300 ml heavy whipping cream
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp (25 g) erythritol (optional)
  • 2 2 egg whiteegg whites

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Separate the eggs. Whisk the egg yolks until smooth and fluffy. Set aside the egg whites.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the cream with the vanilla and the sweetener. Bring to a boil and simmer for a few minutes, until the cream thickens slightly.
  3. Reduce the heat and pour the whipped egg yolks into the hot cream. Combine well and let it simmer on low heat while stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
  4. Refrigerate mixture until cool.
  5. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fluffy; fold into the cream mixture.
  6. Pour the batter into a ice cream maker or in a jar with a lid and place in the freezer. Stir occasionally and continue freezing until it reaches desired consistency.

Tip!

Instead of vanilla extract, you can also use vanilla powder or vanilla bean. Just split the bean lengthwise, scrape out the pods, and boil with the cream.

Feel free to get creative and add other favorite flavors. Cocoa, licorice powder, berries, roasted nuts and coconut flakes are all great choices!

    It’s rather weird as it freezes too much to resemble the texture of ice cream.

    I make sugar free ice cream all the time. I have been LCHF for 7 1/2 years now. I have one of those ice cream freezer you keep the bowl in the freezer. I have a base recipe. I make vanilla, peppermint, chocolate, lemon, strawberry, peanut butter and others. But my favorite is vanilla. No cooking.

    Base:
    3 C. milks (1/2 C Heavy Cream, 1 C almond milk, 1 can coconut milk)
    1-2 scoops Whey Protein (flavorless or same as flavor you are making)
    2/3 C Xylitol
    1/4 t. stevia
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/4 t. salt

    Flavors add:
    Vanilla: +2tsp Vanilla or total of 1TBS.
    Chocolate: 1/2 Coco
    Lemon: zest of one lemon + 3/4 C lemon juice ( use more whipping cream and less almond milk)
    Peppermint: 2t peppermint exract, optional, 1 drop food coloring, 3/4 c blended/chopped sugar-free peppermint candies
    Fruit: 4 Cups then puree + no almond milk but 1 1/2 C whipping cream to counter water in fruit
    Peanut Butter: 3/4 C

    Cool mixture in refrigerator for 2 hours before freezing in ice cream freezer.

    Hi Grass!
    Did you use a ice cream machine or just put it in the freezer? I think the texture gets better when you use a machine. I tried to put it in the freezer and I thought it was good, but I know that it gets even creamier when I use the ice cream machine. I hope you thought it was pretty good anyways :)

    Hi Pam,

    Is the amount of stevia really 1/4 t. (liquid?) OR can 1/4 cup powdered Swerve erythritol be used ? Also, for peanut butter do you just add it by spoonfuls?

    what can you substitute for the whey protein?

    When do you add egg whites

    So I added the egg yolks to the hot cream and some of it ended up getting cooked. Is that normal?

    You may have heated the cream too much. Try reducing the heat further before adding the eggs.
