In honor of National Ice Cream Day (yes, it’s a thing!), I made one of the lowest carb ice creams that I have before. Coming in at only 1.3g Net Carbs per serving, this can be eaten without having to worry about any of the macros. It’s almost pure fat – and it tastes fantastic to boot.
The flavors of the brown butter and heavy cream come together to form an almost caramel type flavor. If you’re familiar with the keto caramel recipe, then you’ll see that this one has some similarities. You brown the butter, add cream, and mix everything together to make a nice syrup-like texture. Adding the pecans gives a slightly salty element, which really brings out the flavor. Though, if you’re a thrill seeker, feel free to add a little bit more salt to your own taste.
