When I say this is the recipe you really want to try! Fat Ice zero carb keto ice cream is going to be the NEW king of Australian freezers!

This zero carb keto ice cream totally is the bomb! 

Creamy, light, scoopable and did you notice it has no carbs in the nutrition box? 

Yes, per 100g this mix has less than 1g of carbs, so low that the nutritional calculator didn’t register any.  Yet look at all that good fat!

For those of you without a Thermomix® you just need to have a good blender, and juts be careful to stick to the timing in the recipe to be careful of over-whipping and heating the mixture.  For many health dietary requirements this ice cream is also easily adaptable.

want dairy free and vegan keto ice cream?

Vegetarian – swap out the butter for Nuttelex and the whey protein for a pea protein.

Dairy Free – swap the whey protein for pea protein powder.

Ice Cream Variations

With the help of some fabulous testers I will be posting some separate flavours.  They are so amazingly creative too.

Rhubarb & Ginger Ripple

1 bunch of rhubarb

juice & peel of a mandarin, peel in long piece

2 tbsp of powdered sweetener (I used xylitol)

10g of finely grated ginger.


Wash and chop rhubarb

Cook on high in the microwave with the juice & peel of the mandarin for 3 minutes, stirring half way through.

Add sweetener and ginger and remove peel.

Stir to combine and leave to cool. Add mix to half a batch of ice cream

Gently fold both plain and rhubarb mixes together and freeze

Turkish Delight Keto Ice Cream

Swap vanilla for 1/4 tsp of rose water & 2- 3 drops of red food colouring

Split mixtures in half again (2x plain & 2x rose)

For Rocky Road

20g crushed pistachios (10g in each)

4 sugar free marshmallows (2 white & 2 pink) cut into tiny pieces

use 1/2 in each batch

20g cacao nibs (10g in each)

Mix through each batch or sprinkle on top, freeze overnight & enjoy!

For the Fairy Floss

Crush 1 Double D sugar free fruit drop (your choice of colour/ flavour) and spin through a floss maker as per manufacturers instructions. Important to note use sweets with isomalt for this. 

Also melted sugar burns!!!!! Wear protective gear, gloves glasses, apron closed in shoes and have iced water in a bowl on hand. 

You may need to stop and start the machine a few times to collect the floss as it spins out.

How to make keto ice cream without an ice cream maker

Just like many other ice creams you can make this by freezing and blitzing in a blender and returning back to the freezer, mason jar method in a bag full of salt and ice and giving a hell of a shake. 

When we really want something as tasty as this there is always a way to make it.

Deliciously creamy and I will say this holds its shape even in the fridge if you want to leave in there for ease of serving.
If placing in moulds ensure you place into a ziplock bag and suck all the air out with a straw.
To make even more scoop able add 1/2 tsp xanthan gum into the mix, or coconut derived glycerin.
If you are looking for carbs this comes in at less than <1g carbs per 100g serve
For a dairy free version replace the butter with Nuttelex and the whey with 0 carb pea protein powder.
If not using the cacao butter double the coconut oil.

    Really good. I think I’ll swirl peanut butter through it next time

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      That sounds great too

  2. Sharon R

    Metric version of this recipe uses 80g of ice but US version uses 6 cups of ice. That is a huge difference. How much ice should be used please?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      I will fix that shortly Sharon. Sometimes the converter doesn’t work out right

  3. Ann Poritzky

    Is MCT oil essential?
    I don’t have any

  4. Rowena Neal

    Hi Megan,

    If I don’t have MCT is there another option?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Rowena, you will need to substitute with a neutral oil that is in a liquid form for the recipe to work.

  5. Jen

    I have Coconut allergy What would you suggest would be a replacement in this instance for the coconut products.

    1. Megan

      I would recommend my macadamia ice cream recipe instead for you Jen.

  6. Karen

    What would I substitute if using vanilla bean paste please?

    1. Megan

      Just the same amount as extract

  7. Lisa

    can you omit the protein powder?

  8. Anonymous

    Hi Megan
    Could this be done if you don’t have a Thermomix?

    1. Megan

      Yes of course and blender or food processor would do the trick.

  9. Colleen

    The coconut oil- does it need to be solid coconut oil that you melt or is the liquid coconut oil ok to use?

    1. Megan

      Liquid is perfectly fine

  10. Mel

    What if you don’t have an ice cream churn

    1. Megan

      Just give it a blend in a blender and freeze. It doesnt need to be churned.

  11. Sabrina

    I’m not a fan of raw eggs.. Can I cook them like a custard first?

    1. Megan

      They cook in the blending heat of the ice cream. You can simply whisk it over a double basin of hot water as well. The vinegar also acts as a cooking agent the same as mayonnaise for example

    This looks so yummy and my adrenalin rush for icecream got increased!

  13. Kelly

    Can’t live without ice cream and this hits the spot!

  14. Bec

    Hi Megan.. What would I put into the mix to make it choc mint or choc chip please?

    1. Megan

      Hi Bec, you could use a little peppermint extract or essential oil, and 1 tbsp of unsweetened cacao, chocolate whey protein powder or melted dark chocolate. For a choc chip, use either the Little Zebra low carb chocolate, or Well Naturally Sugar Free Chocolate (available at Coles and Woolworths)

  15. Anonymous

    I’ve just made it and it’s very nice. I just wanted to make sure it’s ok that the eggs aren’t cooked at all like a normal ice cream custard

    1. Megan

      Yes the eggs are fine as the acid from the vinegar cooks them, just like lemon in mayonnaise.

  16. Sandra

    Do you need to use the MCT oil?

    1. Megan

      It just helps with the consistency and scoopability

  17. Megan

    How good is it?
