Frequently Asked Questions About Keto Vanilla Ice Cream
Is ice cream allowed on the keto diet?
The short answer to a question is NO – ice cream is forbidden on the keto diet because it contains a high percentage of carbohydrates and is something that can get you out of ketosis.
Do you know what ketosis is???
Ketosis is a metabolic condition in which the body uses fat and ketones as its main source of energy, rather than glucose (sugar).
Glucose is stored in the liver and used as needed for energy. However, once your carbohydrate intake is drastically reduced for a few days, your glucose reserves are depleted. The liver can make glucose from the amino acids of the protein we get from food (the process of gluconeogenesis). However, this amount is clearly not enough to meet the needs of our brain, which constantly requires new fuel.
But ice cream can be part of your healthy, balanced diet if you eat it occasionally and in moderation.
* But when it comes to homemade keto vanilla ice cream (the keto-friendly version) – then we can skip the answer above.
Although there are some excellent keto-friendly options available in the market like Rebel and Enlightened.
But I personally love the idea of making my own ice cream because I know exactly what ingredients go into it.
Because it’s always reassuring to know exactly what’s in the food you’re eating when it’s prepared at home. is not it?
Knowing that some of the keto ice creams on the market can be expensive!
And because today’s recipe is so easy to make with simple ingredients, believe me, you don’t need to buy ice cream from today onwards.
Can You Make Keto Ice Cream Without An Ice Cream Maker?
Absolutely! That is one of the wonderful aspects of this keto vanilla ice cream recipe! You’re good to go if you have a freezer! There are no special appliances or ingredients required!
Of course, if you already have one then it might be useful to you, but it certainly isn’t required or even necessary!
What is the best sweetener to use in this recipe?
In fact, Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit is the absolute best sweetener you can use in this recipe!
The texture of the Lakanto powdered melts into the cream perfectly, ensuring there are no lumps of sweetener or a grainy “crunch” in this ice cream!
Monkfruit is completely natural. It’s a great alternative to regular sugar, and including it in your ketogenic diet makes recipes super easy.
It’s a sugar-free, low-carbohydrate, and, of course, keto-friendly option.
How to store Keto Vanilla Ice Cream
You can use any airtight storage container, whether it is glass or plastic.
To ensure that your ice cream lasts as long as possible, you should keep it in the coldest part of your freezer.
Just make sure you don’t stick it in the fridge door, but why???
The answer is simply because the ice cream will melt completely when the refrigerator door is opened and closed.
Best Sugar-Free Keto Ice Cream Toppings
Let’s be honest guys: sometimes, the best thing about ice cream is the toppings!
Vanilla keto ice cream is amazing on its own, but who doesn’t love some amazing toppings – which can make keto vanilla ice cream look and taste even better than it is.
In fact, the list of toppings is endless, but here are some suggestions for you to try:
