Who doesn’t love ice cream? True, there are a number of keto friendly frozen treats that are now available at the grocery store, but this recipe is too simple and too delicious to pass up.
In lieu of sugar, I used allulose. I like it because it has zero GI and zero aftertaste. You may also use erythritol. If you want it sweeter, I suggest adding about 8-10 drops of liquid stevia. I didn’t find it necessary, to be honest. Fromage blanc is the French yogurt – it is a type of soft cheese made from cow’s milk with a creamy sour taste. I use it because I love it but, in a bind, you can use Greek yogurt. Mascarpone is another substitute option.
I promise you, it’s so good! It’s bright and creamy and just plain tasty. I find myself grabbing a spoonful or two much more than I’d like to admit. Thankfully, guilt-free!
