Keto Chocolate Collagen Protein Ice Cream
Sometimes it seems extremely hard to find an ice cream that boosts your self-esteem without destroying your keto dream. Do you daydream about an ice cream that still keeps the ketone bodies in your bloodstream?
Craving an ice cream lately? It might sound funny but we could agree that this easy recipe can actually keep you healthy because it is very tasty and completely sugar-free!
Feel free to adjust this recipe to your desired consistency and maybe use coconut cream if you’re dairy-free. Make plenty to share with your lovely family.
Collagen is the keto-friendly protein powder we use in this recipe. It’s super easy to incorporate with other ingredients to create a delicious and nutritious ice cream.
Collagen makes up 25% – 35% protein in our body. It’s found not only in cartilage and skin but even in blood vessels and tissue fluid.
Most people don’t get enough collagen from their diet. We can eat enough regular protein easily from meat, but this specific type of protein is usually absent in our meals.
Besides collagen protein, other ingredients used in this recipe are almond milk, cocoa, vanilla extract, and stevia.You can use heavy cream (or coconut cream if dairy-free) instead of almond milk for a thicker texture and density.
That’s all! Very simple, isn’t it?
Also, you can add shredded nuts or chocolate chips for decoration.
Such ice cream will be an excellent dessert in hot weather. You can surprise your friends and relatives with your culinary skills, actually spending 5 minutes cooking this dish, not counting the time for ice cream frosting. Bon Appetit!
