Welcome all! Papa G here Today I present my low carbohydrate mint chocolate chip ice cream
This recipe exceeded my expectations with texture and taste, and in my opinion, is better than any of the varieties of low carbohydrate ice cream you can buy Also, with only two and a half net carbohydrates per half pint serving, you can satisfy your real ice cream craving without any guilt Now when it comes to knowing a little bit about low carbohydrate ice cream, my buddy Aaron over at AD Keto has reviewed quite a few low carbohydrate ice cream brands and renders his assessment based upon four elements
Texture; taste; carbohydrate count and the list of ingredients I think my mint chocolate chip ice cream recipe hits the target on all four, so I hope to be seeing this thumbnail in the weeks to come Let's get started Begin by placing four egg yolks in a mixing bowl Add some vanilla extract; some peppermint extract; about a quarter cup of MCT oil; a quarter cup of clear rum; and this little bit of rum will actually help with two things
First, it'll be a natural bacteria preventative And second, it'll lower the temperature at which the ice cream will freeze so we don't wind up with an ice cream so hard we can't serve it Finish with a powdered sugar substitute equal to two cups of regular sugar The powdered substitute works best to give us a creamier result Mix well with an electric mixer until well combined
After cleaning the beaters, in a separate bowl, whip four egg whites until stiff peaks form Pour one and a half cups of heavy whipping cream into a separate mixing bowl and add a half, to one teaspoon of green food coloring With clean beaters, whip until thick and fluffy Add the egg yolk mixture to the whipped cream and with a spatula, gently fold and mix until the mixture is fully combined Now add the egg whites to the cream and gently mix again until the egg whites are no longer visible
Our final ingredient is my homemade roughly chopped low carbohydrate chocolate chips I'll have a link in the description below for that recipe Gently give a final mix until the chocolate is evenly distributed Pour our ice cream mixture into a container for freezing You can divide this up if you like for multiple servings, or just put it in one container like I did here
Cover and freeze for at least 8 hours Once it's ready, grab an ice cream scoop and begin serving one of the best low carbohydrate, ketogenic friendly, ice creams you'll ever try There you have it folks!
