These low carb ice cream recipes are the perfect solution for when you’re craving for something cold, sweet, and creamy! But unlike traditional ice cream, you’re going to have a blast with these because you get to make them yourself… AND you can easily fit them with your daily macros!
Going on a ketogenic diet can be quite challenging at first. Your food-choices needs to be narrowed down and you’ll need to track your macros to make sure that you’re properly nourished while remaining in a state of ketosis. It can get pretty technical at times, BUT the benefits definitely outweigh the draw backs.
So, does following the keto lifestyle mean giving up on delicious desserts? Certainly not! And there’s definitely no need to give up on the queen of all these desserts: Ice cream! But wait, you might ask, “is ice cream keto?” Most of the common ice cream brands we find in stores use carb-heavy sweeteners to satisfy one’s sweet-tooth, so those varieties you’ll definitely want to avoid.
However, a good number of keto ice cream brands on the market, such as Enlightened keto ice cream, can have as little as 1 gram of net carbs per pint! These low-carb ice cream brands like Enlightened ice cream keto desserts, however, can cost a pretty penny though.
So, what is a keto-dieting ice cream lover to do?
