Why Keto Cake Batter Ice Cream?
#1: It’s Completely Sugar-Free
As delicious as it may be, most ice cream is loaded with sugar. As an obvious no-no on the keto diet, even a small bowl of ice cream could kick you right out of your hard-earned ketosis.
Luckily, with a few adjustments, you can satisfy your ice cream cravings completely guilt-free.
This rich and creamy cake batter ice cream recipe provides all the flavor, with absolutely no added sugars. In place of sugar, ingredients like stevia and monk fruit are used. These sugar alternatives not only replace blood glucose spiking sugar, but they have health benefits of their own, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-diabetic[*][*][*].
#2: Ingredients That Supports Joint Health
It may sound like a stretch, ice cream that can support your joints? But there’s an ingredient in this ice cream recipe that research has shown can improve symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint pain.
The secret ingredient: collagen.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, and it makes up a large portion of your connective tissue. Since joint pain typically originates from the deterioration of your cartilage ( a form of connective tissue), it makes sense that adding in more of this supportive nutrient would help mitigate joint pain.
How to Make Keto Cake Batter Ice Cream
Begin by gathering your ingredients and taking out your high-speed blender and ice cream maker.
Mix on high until everything is well combined, then pour cream mixture into your pre-cooled ice cream maker. Churn the ingredients per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Once the ice cream maker is done, pour the ice cream into a freezer-safe container and seal for freshness. Top with, or mix in some sugar-free rainbow sprinkles as a finish.
Make sure to cool the bowl of your ice cream maker overnight or at least several hours before you begin preparing the recipe.
This recipe is dairy-free, but if you don’t have any issues with dairy you can also try replacing the coconut cream with heavy cream and the coconut milk with whole milk.Print
