Pros of Keto Ice Cream

  • Lower in Carbs and Sugar
    Keto ice cream uses sugar substitutes like stevia or erythritol, keeping the carb count much lower than regular ice cream. This can be beneficial for people following a ketogenic diet, which restricts carbohydrates to promote ketosis, a metabolic state where the body burns fat for energy.
  • Potentially Lower in Calories
    Since it uses sugar substitutes with fewer calories than sugar, keto ice cream may have a slight calorie reduction compared to regular ice cream. However, this isn’t always the case, as keto ice cream often uses high-fat ingredients like heavy cream and coconut milk.

Cons of Keto Ice Cream

  • Contains Artificial Sweeteners
    Sugar substitutes can have a different taste than sugar and may cause digestive issues in some people.
  • Often Higher in Fat
    Keto ice cream often relies on fatty ingredients to create a creamy texture. While some fats are good for us, consuming too much fat can be unhealthy.
  • Can Still Be High in Calories
    Even with less sugar, keto ice cream can be high in calories due to the fat content.
  • May Not Taste Exactly Like Regular Ice Cream
    Sugar substitutes can have a different aftertaste compared to sugar, and the high-fat content can alter the overall texture.

  1. You’ll have to change the listed ingredients to call this keto, I’m afraid. Whole milk, agave and regular choc chips are not keto. Almond milk, sweetener of choice, like you said (Swerve/xylitol/erythritol/ monkfruit/Bochasweet/stevia/allulose), and sugar free choc chips such as Lily,’s or Choc Zero are all keto friendly ingredients. I will be making your ice cream with keto ingredients today and let you know how it goes x
