Homemade ice cream can be a bit intimidating, and when you compound the process by making it keto-friendly, it can be all the more overwhelming. Recipes for low-carb ice cream are all over the internet, and most of them seem to be pretty disappointing. However, if a proper base (we call it crème anglaise in the professional culinary world) is prepared and a decent quality ice cream maker is used, then there is no reason why you cannot concoct a satisfying homemade, ketogenic ice cream at home.
This recipe is a fun and easy way to make your own ice cream with only a few ingredients. If you have trouble getting it to blend to the ice cream consistency that you want, and you drop a bit too much liquid into the blender and end up with a milkshake, then so be it. Grab a straw and enjoy! We recommend having a pretty strong blender and adding enough liquid to blend thoroughly, as a cheap blender will burn out quickly with dry ingredients.
We combined creamy coconut milk, crunchy cashews, and energy-boosting coffee to provide natural, sustainable energy first thing in the morning, as an afternoon snack, or for dessert. Unlike fruit smoothies, which are loaded with sugar, this keto-friendly smoothie boasts only 5 grams of carbs. This frappe is also full of healthy fats from almonds, coconuts, and cashews.
