This Easy Keto Sugar-Free Low Carb Chocolate Fat Bomb Ice Cream packs a serious chocolatey punch!
Easy Keto Chocolate Ice Cream
Making an easy Keto Chocolate Ice Cream at home is a lot easier than you might think. You do need an ice cream maker for this recipe but other than that you only need a few simple ingredients you probably already have stocked up in your pantry and fridge.
This delicious recipe comes from my friend Carolyn Ketchum’s newest cookbook, “Easy Keto Desserts.” I mean the title says it all! Who doesn’t want easy desserts in the house? Her first cookbook, “The Everyday Ketogenic Cookbook” was a smashing hit so she made another and this one is just as drool worthy and reliable! I shared these No Bake Haystack Cookies from her first cookbook and they are undeniably the easiest and best chocolatey cookies!
Chocolate Fat Bomb Ice Cream
What is a fat bomb recipe, you must be wondering if you’re new around here or aren’t on a keto diet. Unfamiliar with a keto diet? Read my post, Low Carb versus Keto and my 6 week results. Basically on a keto diet you eat high fat, moderate protein and very low carb. You are burning fat for fuel. You are in a state of ketosis and fat bombs help you make this life style sustainable so bingeing on carbs and sugar won’t even be desired. Fat Bombs are usually 90% fat from sources like coconut oil, or in this keto chocolate ice cream recipe, the fat is coming from heavy whipping cream. Essentially the high fat is what is so satisfying in a fat bomb recipe and this Chocolate Ice Cream is no exception. It’s a satiating dessert in just a small serving.
The only change I made to this recipe was to use MCT oil instead of vodka. I didn’t have any vodka on hand and MCT oil can work the same way to help keep the ice cream smooth and less icy.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring 1.5 cups of the cream and the butter just to a simmer, stirring, until the butter is melted.
Remove from the heat and add the sweetener, chocolate, vanilla extract, and salt. Let sit for about 5 minutes, until the chocolate is melted, then whisk until smooth. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
Whisk the remaining 1 cup of cream and the vodka, if using. Refrigerate until just cool to the touch, 1 to 2 hours.
Pour into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm, another 2 hours or so.
