If you like spoiling yourself with delicious sweets and desserts, the ketogenic diet doesn’t stop you from it. The key is to make it taste delicious while keeping everything low carb using keto-friendly ingredients.
Today we will be making keto-friendly avocado ice cream. Making homemade ice cream is not hard, especially if you already have ice cream maker (if not it’s okay, you just have to whip that mixture in a blender a little longer and on higher speed).
If you’ve been on keto diet for a while, you will notice it renews your taste buds. You’ll feel the natural sweetness in the ingredients. For example, full-fat heavy cream and almond milk are already sweet enough, so when making sugar-free ice cream, you won’t need to add as much sweetener as you would with regular ice cream.
Forget about store-bought desserts, they have lots of sugar and harmful artificial additives. Now you have a healthy and long-lasting ice cream in your fridge ready to be served.
For decoration, you can add peppermint, strawberries or any kind of keto-positive sprinkles you would usually ask for at your local ice cream shop.
And a bonus: avocado ice cream in a real avocado shell makes it simple, nice and delicious!
Let’s Ketofy It!
Remove and add avocado flesh to a blender. Keep the avocado shells in the freezer for later use.
