Low carb cookie dough ice cream
- 1½ cups 350 ml heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup 240 ml unsweetened almond milk
- 5 5 large egg yolkslarge eggs yolks
- ½ cup (3¾ oz.) 120 ml (110 g) xylitol
- 2 tsp 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp ½ tsp salt
- 2½ oz. (2⁄3 cup) 70 g (150 ml) almond flour
- 2 tbsp 2 tbsp xylitol
- 2 tbsp 2 tbsp butter, softened
- ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp 1 tbsp sugar-free baking chocolate, finely chopped
- In a heavy saucepan, heat the cream and almond milk over low heat, stirring with a wire whisk. Add the egg yolks and whisk until just frothy.
- Continue whisking on low heat until the mixture reaches a temperature of 140°F (60°C) or until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
- Add the sweetener to the cream mixture and whisk until well dissolved. Add the vanilla and salt. Remove from heat and let cool in the fridge. While the ice cream mixture cools, make the cookie dough.
- Combine all ingredients and mix well to make the dough.
- Crumble the dough into small pieces. The pieces should be the size of small pebbles. Set aside.
Ice cream maker
- Take the ice cream mixture from the fridge and add it to your ice cream maker. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for making the ice cream.
- Whilst the ice cream is still churning and almost ready but still soft, gradually add the cookie dough bits to the ice cream mixture. As the ice cream churns, the cookie dough bits will be distributed through the mixture.
- Let the ice cream continue in the ice cream maker until it is ready to be served, or ready to be transferred and stored in the freezer.
To give the ice cream a creamier consistency, use xylitol instead of erythritol or an erythritol blend. Erythritol makes the ice cream very hard; however, if you use erythritol, simply wait 5-7 minutes to serve the ice cream after removing it from the freezer.
If purists in your house love plain vanilla ice cream, you can also enjoy this version without the cookie dough pieces.
If you are using pasteurized eggs, the ice cream mixture can be combined all together in a blender without heating.
Xylitol is a low-glycemic sugar alcohol. Here's more information! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/sweeteners#xylitol
No, the cookie dough bits are added to the ice cream mixture.
Heating the mix may help thicken it as well as pasteurizing the eggs. If you like the texture and consistency yes, you can skip the heating stage.
The default amount makes 4 servings. (This can be adjusted.) If you click the Nutrition heading below the ingredients list, you'll see the nutritional information, which is per serving.
I have Stevia drops, might it be better mixing erythritol and Stevia?
Xylitol should be the same amount as erythritol. You may also want to try allulose.

The texture may not be the same, but you can freeze it in a bowl. Some people will stir it occasionally as it freezes.
I have a nut allergy can I substitute the almond for coconut?
We have not tested this recipe with coconut flour but generally if you use coconut flour, you'll want to use half the amount.
