We can all agree that there is nothing that says summer like ice cream. And if you are like us, ice cream does not just have to be enjoyed during the hot summer months. But it is definitely a menu item that can go missing once you start the keto diet. Today we are going to show you have to bring this delicious treat back. It is easy and simply to make. Absolutely worth a try!
Recipe & Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
5 1/2 cups of heavy cream
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup powdered erythritol
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 tablespoon mint extract
3 oz sugar free chocolate
Start off by melting the butter in a large saucepan. This time we are not going to brown the butter. Melt the butter slowly in the saucepan. Once melted add the heavy cream. Over medium heat bring the mixture to where you can only keep your finger in for a couple seconds. This should be the correct temperature so you can temper the eggs.
In a separate bowl add your egg yolks, salt and erythritol. Mix well. Once mixed add 1 cup of your heated cream mixture slowly to the egg mixture whisking constantly to prevent the egg from cooking. This process will temper the eggs. Once you have all the liquid added give it a last good stir and then add the tempered egg mixture to your saucepot.
On medium heat cook your custard mixture for 5 min stirring constantly.
You should see a little bit of foam forming on the top. But not too much. After cooking for 5 min turn the stove off and let it sit for just a few min. You now need to add the vanilla and mint extract. We recommend not adding these till very last. The essence will dissipate with long cooking times. So by adding it in at the very end you should have the best flavor.
Pour into a mason jar and cool the mixture in the refrigerator. We recommend at least 2 hours. Longer is even better.
Once cooled you are going to take the mason jar out of the refrigerator and start shaking. But this is where we have to caution you. Over shaking this product will result in you making mint butter. Simply shake in as if you are just stirring all the ingredients together. You only need to shake for 1 to 2 min. This process adds a little air into the mixture.
After shaking for 1 to 2 min we poured ours into individual portion containers for freezing. This way you don’t have to scoop your product when you want to eat it!
