This Low Carb Chocolate Ice Cream is the perfect dessert to cool you down this summer! Looking for a light, summer-time, low carb dessert? This is it. At just 1 Net Carb per serving it’s absolute summer perfection.
Ice Cream will always be one of my favorite ways to enjoy the summer.. well really anytime of the year. I love ice cream so much.
We’ve been scooping our way through summer with this this ice cream maker (aff link). One of my favorite flavors is Chocolate ice cream (although coffee ice cream ranks #1). I mean we do absolutely love chocolate. This Keto Flourless Chocolate Cake wouldn’t tell you otherwise.
We had this in the ice cream maker in about 5 minutes and had ready-to-eat ice cream about 30 minutes after that. It was pretty awesome actually. I love the idea of being able to make any flavor I want and add any additions I like.
What mix-ins to add to this Chocolate Ice Cream
- Chocolate chunk ice cream, you can either order a bag of low carb chocolate chips (aff link), or you can make a batch of my homemade, low carb chocolate bars and break those into chunks.
- Walnuts are also a fabulous addition too!
- Cookie Dough is another way to my heart. Cookie dough AND chocolate?! Hecks yeah.
HOW MANY NET CARBS for our Keto Ice Cream
1 Net Carb per serving. One serving is 1/4th of what this recipe makes. So quite a bit honestly. So split the ice cream into 4 even servings and that is it!
If you are new to this Low Carb/Keto lifestyle and are unsure what we are talking about please feel free to read up more on Net Carbs and why people do or don’t subtract sugar alcohols.
There are 48 grams of sugar alcohol in the entire recipe and should be subtracted to get your net carbs. So 12g of sugar alcohol per serving should be subtracted to get the 1 Net Carb.
If you’d like to use another form of sugar alcohol be sure to check out our low carb sweetener conversion chart. Our family does subtract the sugar alcohols and we’ll continue to provide that sugar alcohol grams above the nutrition card below and you can decide for yourself if you want to follow that. 🙂
Perfect sweetness to our chocolate ice cream
This is not overly sweet. If you prefer sweeter things I’d adviseIf you prefer sweeter sherbet, try adjust with more sweetener to taste while the ice cream is still churning in the ice cream maker.
NOTE: you must add the additional sweetener in before the ice cream becomes completely frozen. So keep an eye on things if you wish to adjust the sweetness to your liking.
