This is one of the simplest ice cream recipes that I know of when it comes to keto. You don’t have to make a custard, you don’t have to freeze or refrigerate the mixture before adding it to your ice cream machine, and you don’t have to wait around to temper anything. It’s simply blend, add, and eat!
I’m using a pretty fancy Gelato maker for this. It has a built in compressor, so it’s also pretty expensive. My girlfriend picked it up a few years back on sale for around $120, which was a steal. Since my switch from a typical freeze-the-bucket type of machine, this has been amazing. Making ice cream without prep from start to finish in 30 minutes or less!
The consistency you’re going after during the blending process will be a little bit gummy. Similar to what you’d expect melted gummy bears to be. If you scoop it up with a spoon, it should look a little bit slimy. Though it’s not a fantastic experience to eat this kind of texture warm, the xanthan gum is a stabilizer and will help keep the ice cream a great consistency once partially frozen.
