It unites the smooth creamy vanilla taste and the strong, delicious dark chocolate. I would say the perfect combination.

I’ve been missing this taste since we are on low sugar, no sugar diet so this summer I decided to make my own, homemade Viennetta ice cream without sugar. I have to say it’s an enormous success and a big accomplishment. It tastes heavenly.


  • 100+25 grams dark chocolate with stevia (100 grams for the layers and 25 grams for the topping) (like this)
  • 4 egg whites (fresh eggs)
  • 0.5 litres whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup or other optional sweetener of your choice
  • Vanilla extract
  • 2 handfuls of nuts (optional)

How to make homemade Viennetta ice cream:

  1. Start with melting 100 grams of chocolate as it needs the most time to prepare. Break chocolate into pieces and put it into a small saucepan. Place saucepan of chocolate on a slightly bigger saucepan of something water. Stir occasionally until melted completely.Break up the chocolate -Viennetta ice cream recipe - SunCakeMomMelt the chocolate on steam - Viennetta ice cream recipe - SunCakeMom

  6. Put egg whites in a different bowl. Be careful not to have anything else in the bowl because if you leave any drop of yolk in, the egg whites won’t raise the same way. Whisk until it’s hard. Something like this:Beat the egg white - Viennetta ice cream recipe - SunCakeMom
