Low Carb, THM Friendly Chocolate Ice Cream {THM-S, Gluten Free, Grain Free}

Low Carb, THM Friendly Chocolate Ice Cream {THM-S, Gluten Free, Grain Free}

The recent purchase of an ice cream maker has effectively changed my dessert world! I love the fact that I can have rich, creamy ice cream on hand – but mostly I love the fact that it only takes 30 minutes from start to finish! I would highly recommend the Cuisinart ICE-20 Automatic 1-1/2-Quart Ice Cream Maker, White
if you are looking for an ice cream maker! It is amazing!

This recipe is nearly the same as my Vanilla ice cream, but the inclusion of good cocoa powder makes this a rich, creamy, decadent chocolate delight! If you are looking for rich, chocolatey goodness, you will not be disappointed!

First I blend the ingredients and pour them into my ice cream freezer bowl. 


Set the timer for 25 minutes and let the ice cream maker work its magic! When you come back you should find this! 


The immediate texture of this ice cream (when it has finished churning), is very similar to a Frosty! If you like it this way, you can eat it immediately! If you like it a little more firm, just pop it in the freezer for a few minutes. After it has frozen solid, (If you do not include the recommended vegetable glycerin), you will want to let the ice cream set on the counter for a few moments to soften.

My whole family loves this ice cream! I hope yours does, too! This is great with fresh strawberries! 


Low Carb, Sugar Free Chocolate Ice Cream

{THM-S, Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free}

Recipe:

  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup Half & Half
  • 1/2 cup THM Gentle Sweet
  • 1/4 cup quality cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbl vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbl vegetable glycerin (optional – helps keep it “scoop-able”)

In a blender, blend the cottage cheese and half & half until completely smooth. This step is very important – nobody wants cottage cheese lumps in their ice cream – Gross! Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Pour into your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturers instructions (mine only took about 25 minutes). Transfer to a freezer safe container and keep airtight in the freezer. If you do not add the vegetable glycerin, you will want to set the ice cream on the counter for a few minutes to soften.
