Super Easy Keto Mason Jar Ice Cream 🍨

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

Instructions

  1. To make vanilla ice cream, add all of the ingredients into a portion sized mason jar, or similar glass jar with a lid. Want a different flavor? Pick your favorite from the list below, and add the ingredients to the vanilla mixture.

  2. Seal the lid, and shake vigorously for a minimum of 5 minutes.

  3. Place the jar in the freezer, and chill for at least three hours. Enjoy!

Tips

Use a jar that leaves enough room for the ice cream to move around, when shaken. For selecting a jar, based on your number of servings, these are typical jar sizes: Half-pint =8oz =1c, Pint =16oz =1.5c, Quart =32oz =4c.

Raw eggs, really?

If you're concerned about consuming raw eggs, you can heat the egg, cream, and sweetener until it reaches a temperature of 140°F (60°C). Be sure to stir continuously as the mixture heats. Then proceed with combining all ingredients in the jar, shaking vigorously.

To make the ice cream creamier

To achieve an even creamier consistency, use xylitol instead of erythritol, or an erythritol blend. Erythritol makes the ice cream very hard; if you use erythritol, simply wait 5-7 minutes to serve the ice cream after it's been frozen.

Make it a game

Having a dinner party or hosting a birthday? Why not get your guests to shake up their own dessert? Just make sure you get them to do this at the start of the event to ensure adequate freezing time. For added laughter, choose a fun 5 minute long song to get your guests shaking to.

How to reduce the carbs?

If you want to reduce the carbs, you can use half of the amount of cream, and substitute the other half with almond milk. Keep in mind that the ice cream will not be as creamy, as when you only use cream.
