Low Carb Vanilla Ice Cream
My little family of three has some interesting dietary needs and they don't aways match up. My husband Brian has type 1 diabetes. Although technically he can eat anything he wants as long as he gives himself insulin to cover the carbs, he prefers to eat lower carb. Brian loves vanilla ice cream so when I asked for a countertop ice cream maker for my birthday I was excited to make him some ice cream that he could eat without having to measure! This ice cream is thick and creamy and so good right out of the ice cream maker. We are big soft serve fans in our house! Our four year old son LOVES this ice cream even more than the full of sugar ice cream I buy from the store! I still prefer my coconut milk ice cream made with maple syrup but I will post that recipe another day.
* 2 cups heavy cream
* 1 1/4 cup whole milk
* 1/2 cup swerve confectioners sugar
* 1/2 TBSP vanilla extract
*1/8 tsp fine sea salt
1) If you are using a counter top ice cream maker put the base in the freezer at least 24 hours before.
2) In a large bowl whisk together all the ingredients until fully incorporated.
3) Follow the directions on your ice cream maker to churn the ice cream, ours is a Cuisinart and takes about 13 minutes.
Brian likes to top his ice cream with Lilly's dark chocolate chips!
Immediately freeze any leftovers. I like to freeze the leftovers in individual silicon muffin wrappers for easy serving and defrosting.
