This Keto Strawberry Ice Cream is not only low carb, but it is also dairy free and vegan. We love that is so simple to make since it is only made with 4 ingredients.

Keto Strawberry Ice Cream

I am obsessed with making Ice Cream now that I have an ice cream maker. Normally, I make ice cream in my food processor with frozen bananas. But, bananas are full of carbs and I had to try something new to make Keto Ice Cream.

There is something so nostalgic about Strawberry Ice Cream. It reminds me of my childhood getting ice cream strawberry shortcake bars from the ice cream truck that would drive our neighborhood in the summertime. Did you have an ice cream truck when you were a kid? Do they still exist?

Keto Ice Cream Recipe

To make this Low Carb Ice Cream, I use Coconut Milk from the can and fresh strawberries. This ice cream is sugar free making it extremely Keto friendly.

You can also use frozen strawberries to make this ice cream as well. Use what you have on hand. I free my strawberries if they seem like that are going to go bad because we aren’t eat enough of them.

One week, we will go through a carton of strawberries a day. The next week no on will touch them. I hate for them to go to waist.

Keto Ice Cream Recipe

Dairy Free Strawberry Ice Cream Ingredients

  • 1 Can Coconut Milk (not lite)
  • 1 Cup Strawberries, cut in 1/2 or 1/4
  • 10 drops Stevia
  • 5 drops Monkfruit

You can use whatever alternative sugar your ice cream. In fact, you can skip sweetener all together. For me, I like a little sweetness in my ice cream.

I chose to mix 2 different liquid sweeteners together to get the best possible flavor without being over powered by any specific sweetener flavor. You can use whatever sweetener you prefer or have on hand.

Granulated Sweetener NOTE

If you only have a granulated sweetener, you will need to dissolve it in liquid before you make the ice cream otherwise it will be grainy and the texture will suffer.

Tools & Supplies

  • Ice Cream Maker

Net Carbs – Keto Friendly Ice Cream

If you use stevia or monkfruit like we did in this recipe, the next carbs are 4 per serving making this ice cream Keto friendly

The Best Canned Coconut Milk

The only way to get this ice cream right is by using canned coconut milk.

The best Keto Coconut Milk that I have found are these.

  • Trader Joe’s Coconut Milk (available at Trader Joe’s)
  • Whole Foods 360 Brand Coconut Milk (available at Whole Foods)
  • Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk 
  • Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk 
  • A Taste of Thai Coconut Milk (it can be found at various grocery stores)

Canned Coconut Milk is what you are looking for when you are making homemade ice cream in the food processor or blender.

If you are the store trying to figure out what canned coconut milk to get, make sure to avoid sulfates. Avoid Potassium Metabisulfite. It is a common ingredient in canned coconut milk and a preservative to be avoided.

Did you know that Canned coconut milk is extremely healthy? One cup of canned coconut milk has more than 10 percent of your daily value of iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.

It’s also high in fat, but it contains a type of fat. Learn more about Coconut Milk health benefits here on SF Gate site.

How to Make Dairy Free Strawberry Ice Cream? 

Start by putting the ice cream machine base into the freezer.

According to the instructions for the ice cream machine, the base should be frozen at the back of the freezer standing straight up.

Once the base is frozen, add it to the ice cream maker with the fruit paddle.

Start the ice cream machine. Then, add the strawberries into the machine while it is moving.

Let it churn for 5 minutes with just the strawberries.

Then, open the coconut milk can and pour it into the ice cream maker as it is churning.

Add the liquid sweetener here. (see note about granulated sweetener if that is all you have in the house).

Set a timer for 18 minutes and let the coconut milk and strawberries turn into yummy ice cream.

Remove the ice cream from the ice cream maker using a spoon and adding it to a shallow tubberware or glass pyrex with cover.

You can enjoy the strawberry ice cream. It will come out with a soft serve consistency. You can also put it in the freezer to help it get harder.
