Best Sugar Free Vanilla Ice Cream EVER!

Updated: May 3

Several years ago I was gifted a ice cream bowl for my KitchenAid and a Ben & Jerry's ice cream cookbook. Boy did we eat a TON of great ice creams! Of course at that time I ate whatever so they were absolutely not for anyone looking to lose weight.

Fast forward to about 5 years ago and I've been creating "healthier" ice cream recipes ever since, mainly using coconut milk or cream.

I just love the richness of Ben & Jerry's recipes, so I modified their French Vanilla recipe to make it sugar free, low carb and keto friendly. Just check out how fluffy it is!

The velvety texture of this ice cream doesn't disappoint! I especially love that it comes together quickly with just 5 ingredients!

I am seriously considering making some keto ice cream cookie sandwiches in the future to level up my sweets game. :)
