Please welcome Martina from Ketodiet Blog who has graciously provided this beautiful recipe today while I am traveling with my family on our Cross Country Trip!
Hi everybody! My name is Martina and I live in the UK. I love food, science, photography and creating new recipes. I am a firm believer of low-carb living and regular exercise. As a science geek, I base my views on valid research and I have first-hand experience of what it is to be on a low-carb diet. Both are reflected on my blog, in my apps and book.
I started eating low-carb in 2011, shortly after I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. Since then, I‘ve been trying to figure out what works best for me and discovered some of the great benefits of low-carb eating. Following a low-carb, paleo-friendly diet plan helps me maintain a healthy weight while eating real food. I believe that true paleo is great, however if your goal is to lose weight, paleo is often not enough.
My mission is to help you reach your goals, whether it's your dream weight or simply eating healthy food. Come and say hi on my blog!
Most no-churn ice cream recipes call for sweetened condensed milk, which is a no-no if you follow a healthy low-carb diet. Instead I used homemade condensed coconut milk sweetened with Erythritol. It works just like regular condensed milk and tastes fantastic.
If you prefer a more classic flavor with minimum preparation, try my No-Churn Vanilla Ice-Cream. It’s made with just five basic ingredients and you won’t need the to prepare any condensed milk or cookies.

Sugar-Free Keto Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
- 2 cans coconut milk 800 ml/ 27.4 fl oz
- ½ cup powdered Erythritol or Swerve 80 g/ 2.8 oz
- ½ cup almond flour 50 g/ 1.8 oz
- 3 tablespoons cacao powder 15 g/ 0.5 oz
- ¼ cup granulated Erythritol or Swerve 50 g/ 1.8 oz
- 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or ghee softened
- 2 ½ cups heavy whipping cream 600 ml/ 20 fl oz
- 1 recipe Condensed milk recipe above
- 1 recipe Chocolate Cookie recipe above
To prepare the Condensed Milk:
- Pour the coconut milk in a pot. Bring to a boil over a medium-high heat. Once it starts simmering, turn the heat down to low. Reduce the coconut milk to about half of the volume. This will take 40-50 minutes. Once reduced, take off the heat and add Erythritol. Pour in a mixing bowl and set aside to cool down to room temperature.
To prepare the Chocolate Cookie:
- While you prepare the condensed milk, make the chocolate cookie. Preheat the oven to 300 F / 150 C. Place the almond flour, cacao powder, Erythritol, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl and combine well. Add the egg and coconut oil and mix with your hands.
- Place the dough on a sheet of parchment paper, top with another sheet of parchment paper, and roll out, or simply use your hands to flatten it until about ¼ inch (½ cm) thick, to create a large cookie.
- Transfer to a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until crispy. Let the cookie cool to room temperature. The cookie will be soft at first but will crisp up as it cools down. Once cooled and crisped up, break the cookie into small pieces.
To prepare the Ice-Cream:
- Place a large container in the freezer. (I used an 8-inch/ 20 cm square baking dish lined with parchment paper. Any 9-10 cup container will work).
- In a bowl, whisk the cream until soft peaks form. Be careful not to over whisk it to avoid curdling.
- Gently fold the whipped cream into the cooled condensed milk. At first, add a few tablespoons to lighten the mixture, and then gently mix in the remaining whipped cream without deflating it. Mix in the cookie pieces (reserve some for topping).
- Remove the container from the freezer and spoon in the ice-cream mixture. Top with the reserved cookie pieces. Place in the freezer and freeze for 4-6 hours before serving.
Can I use a combination of Erythritol and Munk Fruit instead of all Erythritol?
Yes that would work.
In the recipe, you only used half the condensed milk recipe? What's the other half for?
Can't wait to try this but I'm allergic to eggs, coconut milk, almonds, and cocoa powder. Any suggestions? Kidding! You have the patience of a Saint. ?
You got me for a minute!! Thank you for making me laugh!
Edi @ SunCakeMom
Have you tried using just evaporated milk and erythtritol instead of the condensed milk? Surely not as fancy as making your own condensed milk from coconut milk but it might be cheaper and surely faster if your local store has it on stock.
What would I do if I wanted to add protein powder to this recipe and can I use coconut sugar instead?
The serving size is 3.5 grams? That is literally less than a tablespoon. If you actually had a decent amount it wouldn't be low carb at all.
There was a glitch with my new recipe plug in. It converted all my recipes servings grams instead of ounces or cups, etc. It should be 3.5 ounces.
Hi! Would love to make this. Just confirming if it is 2 x tins of coconut milk @ 800g each or if the 800g is total (2 x 400g tins?)
Hello, I love these recipes and cant wait to try. Quick question. Why is it you need an ice cream maker for the Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream and not the Cookies and Cream... I only ask because I don't have one, and would like to make the strawberry one tonight...*Yes, I'm addicted to ice cream lol* Can I still make the strawberry one without it???
The cookies and cream was a guest post from another blogger for while I was away on my trip. My recipe for the strawberry cheesecake ice cream is with the ice cream machine and I've not tried it any other way so i can't say for certain you'll have a creamy end product without using an ice cream machine.
I know this says no-churn but have you tried it in a Cuisinart ice cream maker? I don't think I'd want to wait six hours before I could eat the ice cream. 🙂
Can I use something else in place of the heavy whipping cream? I'm dairy free.
possibly coconut milk
Do you think egg replacer would work with this? I'm allergic to eggs which makes keto difficult but not impossible but ice cream was my vpcrack and I'd live to find a recipe I could use?
We are trying to eat healthier, but we live on social security and cannot afford most of the foods in the recipes. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Hi Donna, how about the No-Churn Vanilla Ice-Cream (link is in the post above) - this recipe is simple and only includes a few common ingredients: cream, eggs, sweetener, vanilla. The cream of tartar can be omitted or replaced with apple cider vinegar (used to stabilise the egg whites). Also, you can use other options instead of erythritol (e.g. stevia). I hope this helps!
Need clarification: The recipe ingredients for the chocolate cookie lists baking powder but the instructions to prepare the chocolate cookie mentions using baking soda and cream of tartar.
Martina @ KetoDiet
Hi Theresa, I'm sorry about the confusion. I sometimes use cream of tartar combined with baking soda as a substitute to baking powder. For every teaspoon of baking powder, you can use 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar + 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. Or just use 1 teaspoon of gluten-free baking powder. I hope this helps!
Can you use almond milk instead of coconut milk?
Martina @ KetoDiet
Hi Terri, I'm afraid almond milk won't work (it's almost fat-free) - you will need to use coconut milk or regular dairy cream.
What kind of coconut milk do you use? What is the fat percentage?
Wouldn't it take less time to reduce coconut cream?
I can't wait to try it, thanks for this recipe! 😀
Martina @ KetoDiet
Hi Meli, I used a combination of Aroy-D (liquid coconut milk - no guar gum and in my opinion it tastes best) and canned coconut milk (Biona - contains guar gum and helps with thickening). Yes, I suppose you could use coconut cream but I haven't tried that 🙂
Could Stevia be used instead of Erythritol? It seems to not agree w/me. So many low-carb recipes use it, though..Any ideas, anybody?
Martina @ KetoDiet
Hi Nancy, yes, you can definitely use stevia instead. Just make sure you only use a small amount - most stevia products are 200-300 times sweeter than sugar.
