      Ice Cream!
When I was a kid, my Mother used to say that Ice Cream feeds the soul. For some reason, it brings us a feeling of celebration and joy. We find excuses to eat it any time, anywhere and for any reason. And you can make it in as many flavors, varieties and concoctions as your imagination can take you to.

Indulge in homemade black cherry, heaped into a fluted, clear glass sundae goblet, or choose a single scoop of French vanilla ice cream, gently centered in a chilled metal dish.

So allow us to share our favorite low carb, sugar free ice cream recipes with you!

Marguerite's Heavenly Vanilla Ice Cream

This amazing recipe is the creation of Marguerite, a creative young low carber who has graciously shared this treat with us. We could scarcely believe how good it came out, and so we begin our recipes with this one!

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup DaVinci Sugarfree Vanilla Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons light cream
  • 2 leveled scoops Keto Vanilla Ice Cream Mix
  • 1/2 Tablespoons Dixie Diner's Fat-Not Creme It
  • 1/2 teaspoon ascorbyl palmitate powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Bob's Red Mill xanthan gum
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoons glycerin
  • 1 teaspoon (leveled and scraped) Steel's Nature Sweet (maltitol syrup)
Marguerite's Ice Cream Combine all ingredients and mix well. Add to your ice cream maker and prepare as usual. (It can take from 20 to 30 minutes in a standard rotating bowl machine.)

Yields one roughly 2-cup serving and approximately 102 calories, 5g fat, 2.4 effective carbs, and 2g protein. As a normal serving of ice cream is a tiny little 1/2 cup, the combination of xanthan, glycerin, and Creme It really make a little bit of cream go a looooong way (at a fraction of the calories and carbs too!)   [Note from Lora: We have doubled and tripled this and it still comes out excellent.]

Dixie Diner's Fat-Not Creme It Notes:
Ascorbyl palmitate is the fat-soluble version of vitamin C.  I originally added it for health purposes but found it improved the texture in another recipe, and so I stuck with it.

You should be able to find ascorbyl palmitate powder at your health food or vitamin specialty store, but if you can't, it can be ordered online at: Dixie Diner's Fat-Not Creme It can be ordered from Dixie Diner (It's Item #220101).
