Vanilla Bean Ice Cream that's sugar free, low carb, egg free and low calorie too? Who could say no to that?!!
Soft serve and creamy is what this ice cream is all about! Little specks of delicious vanilla bean and you've got a great easy single serving dessert any time you want! Of course you could share and each of you only get a half cup, but why when this is low carb, so low in calories you can eat the whole cup yourself!
Only 120 calories!!!
I finally bought a real whole vanilla bean for the first time over our vacation away in NH. I found 3 pods for only $6.50!!! That was a steal and I knew exactly what I wanted to do, make some real vanilla bean ice cream! It's my fav. I know some of you or the majority of you are chocolate ice cream lovers but I promise I will adapt this recipe for you, but first you must give vanilla a try!
If you need a chocolate fix just add some homemade sugar free magic shell on top!
Like I said this is a single serving or for 2 for a reason. I can't have too much of it in my house so a small portion is better so no left overs are lurking in my freezer if you know what I mean. It's low carb and low cal but I certainly can't show my kids it's ok to eat ice cream every night even when it is healthy right?
