If you thought you could never have ice cream again…look no further! This Keto vanilla ice cream recipe is perfect for your low carb diet! You won’t believe how easy it is to make your very own low carb and sugar-free ice cream right at home.


  • 6 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup powdered swerve
  • ¼ cup allulose sweetener
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ tbsp vanilla 
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp xanthan gum 




If you don’t have an ice cream maker I would invest in one, it will make the best ice cream.

Xanthan Gum is a crucial ingredient to getting creamy ice cream and it helps prevent ice crystals from forming. 

Freeze the ice cream bowl for 24 hours before churning.

Adding 1-2 tablespoons of vodka will help reduce the iciness of the ice cream. This is optional.

MCT Powder or oil will make the ice cream creamier. Only add about ¼ cup. This is optional. 

2-4 tsp of Beef Gelatin will give you a very thick and custard-like consistency. Don’t add too much, otherwise it will be way too thick. This is optional. 

Vanilla beans can be used as an addition to vanilla extract. Split the bean in half lengthwise, and scrape out the seeds and the vanilla pod into the cream mixture while cooking on the stove. 

For a dairy-free option use full-fat coconut milk instead of cream. 

Make sure your cream mixture is fully chilled before adding to the ice cream maker in order to get the best results.
