Low Carb Vanilla Ice-Cream


How to make low carb vanilla ice cream

So yes, this may be the third ice-cream recipe I’ve posted in a short time period. I don’t think you’re allowed to judge, but if you want to…that’s okay too. Basically I just really like ice-cream.

You can't buy happiness but you can buy ice cream

This one has a little more fat content, but is a scrumptious, creamy classic. A skeleton for your wildest ice-cream dreams!

 Low Carb Vanilla Ice-Cream

  1.  1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  2. 1/2 cup half and half
  3. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  4. 1/8 classic stevia syrup
  5. 1-2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  6. Pinch of pure sea salt

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Add to ice-cream maker according to manufacturers instructions.

 *You can use any stevia based sweetener, just add according to taste. I used this NuNaturals simple syrup and I love it.
