Although the keto diet relies heavily on meat, fish, healthy fat and low carb vegetables, dairy can also be included in your diet. So if you find yourself craving for ice cream on your low carb diet you could make this delicious no churn Keto Chocolate Ice Cream and indulge!
Many recipes require that you use an ice cream maker but this low carb ice cream is no churn. It’s technically a gelato which is creamier and fattier and tastes much richer than regular ice cream. So much so that you won’t be able to stop eating it!
So, here’s the Low Carb Keto Chocolate Ice Cream recipe from Megha Barot of Keto Connect. Megha and Matt started the site after they realized their results from the ketogenic lifestyle were too good not to share.
