Keto Mason Jar Ice Cream: 3 Recipes – Vanilla, Almond and Chocolate

keto ice cream recipes

Mason jar ice cream, as the name suggests, is made in a glass jar. And we just love it for convenience, cuteness, and a variety of tastes too. But how about those following the healthier path? I don’t know about you, but I refuse to live in a world where there are no keto mason jar ice cream options! So in this post, I’d love to share some. (And those would be not only low carb but also vegan friendly).

Is traditional mason jar ice cream keto-friendly?

Mason jar ice cream typically comprises heavy cream, granulated sugar, vanilla paste or extract, and salt. According to Fitbit, half a cup of regular homemade vanilla ice cream contains 7g of fat, 3.5g of protein, 16g of carbs (including 14.5g of sugar), and 145 calories.

That’s quite a lot of sugar, so by no means, I would recommend it for those following a ketogenic diet. Not to mention that many kinds of dairy can be insulinogenic and, therefore, not suitable for efficient keto. 

How to make keto mason jar ice cream?

The best mason jar keto recipes replace traditional ingredients with cleaner versions. Instead of sugar and dairy milk, I’d go with erythritol and non-dairy substitutes such as cashew milk, almond milk, and coconut milk.

Besides the fact that erythritol is entirely natural, it has zero calories. It is quickly absorbed and excreted by the human body. It’s probably my #1 choice of sweeteners for a clean keto (if you absolutely have to eat some sweets). 

Except for rice and oat milk, non-dairy milk substitutes contain lots of vitamins and minerals, few calories, and no lactose. They are the ideal choice for vegans and individuals on a keto diet.
