View Full Version : Chocolate Ice-cream



Eileen

100g full fat cottage cheese
28g whey
150ml cold water
2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg
Sweetener
Xanthan gum (optional)

Dissolve the whey in the water, add the cocoa, sweetener and stir well.
Blend the egg, cottage cheese and cocoa mixture together, sprinkle on a small amount (less then half tsp) xanthan gum if you have it.
Divide into six clean yogurt pots or similar containers and freeze.
Take out and leave to thaw 10-15 minutes before you plan to eat.
Serve with heavy cream.

This definitely feeds a chocolate craving. And my children love it. They can't believe I'm actually allowing them to eat as much ice-cream as they want.

Freeze it, and then take it out ten minutes before you plan to eat it. It won't have the fluffy texture of commercial ice-cream, but it's pretty good.

Another lighter version is to mix some cocoa powder (about 1-2 tsp), cold coffee and sweetener to a smooth paste, then whisk an egg white, and fold in the cocoa mixture. Freeze. This is very chocolately but much lighter textured and very low cal. Not really high fat enough for keto, but you can always pour cream on it.

I tried this with banana whey and dessicated coconut instead of cocoa powder. Unfortuantely, didn't leave it freeze for long enough but still very nice. Shall be making some more

Whatever alternative you use to sugar. A lot of people use Splenda, I use Xylitol if I'm making it for the children, stevia if it's for me. Use the amount you need to make it tasty. You'll probably find that you don't need as much as most non-ketoers.

Eileen, is there a reason you don't use stevia for children. It just caught my atttention because I use stevia in my herbal teas and my grandbaby always shares with me.

I think stevia has a slight aftertaste, which I don't mind, but think the children might. Also, I can buy xylitol in all the local health food shops, but have to buy stevia on-line.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure it wasn't anything like, no honey for children under 1yr. etc.

I went through a bit of stevia before I found one that didn't leave an aftertaste.

All the cottage cheese I buy comes in 200g or 250g tubs.

Xanthan gum is available in health food shops. It's mostly used as a baking ingredient for coeliacs, so you may find the bigger supermarkets have it in their baking sections.

Once you have it, you'll wonder how you managed without it. It's great for thicking shakes, and you can use it to make all sorts of protein puddings, or keto sauces.

I use Greenleaf, luckily I can get it at my health food store. :)

I just had my first cup of this stuff.. it tasted just like chocolate ice cream! I couldn't tell the difference at all. And with that heavy cream it was much better than regular chocolate ice cream.

I overdid it, though, and had about a full cup or more of heavy cream with mine.... trust me, don't have that much heavy cream with it even though it tastes so damn good.. ughhhhh so full, I wanna puke.

EDIT: Wow that made the ketostix the darkest it's ever been.. LOL.

By the way, there is some carbs in heavy cream right?

Eileen
02-03-2008, 01:28 PM
Yes, it has carbs, about 2.5g per 100ml of cream, so I'd worry more about the calories than the carbs.

Try the vanilla ice-cream recipe.

Correction to my post, it is Sweetleaf plus in the green package. I always get the name wrong. :(

Depends what ingredients you use. There's a lot of variation on cottage cheese and whey.

i did this today!!! i made it a little bit different but same basic idea

I don't have specific measurements on anything since I kind of just threw it together.

1 cup cottage cheese
some walden farms chocolate syrup
some splenda
some black cherry sugar free jello powder (about 1/2 tbsp i think)
tbsp of peanut butter
a little bit of xanthan gum
some ice and some water

first i blended the cottage cheese, chocolate syrup, splenda and jello mix by itself. it was really really thick, so i added some ice and a little bit of water to get it to mix better. then i made it too runny, so i added some more ice then some xanthan gum. at some point i threw in a tbsp of peanut butter it was kind of trial and error to get the right consistency, but when I stopped the blender and tasted it with a spoon, it was JUST LIKE SOFT SERVE FROZEN YOGURT!!! Right out of the blender!!!!! With the addition of the ice, water, and xanthan gum, it made it cold, creamy and a huge huge serving that was very satisfying, filling and very thick and yummy! It was a chocolate cherry creamy flavor.

I'm not exaggerating about the taste or consistency. This beats any ice cream I've ever eaten, and I'm actually thinking about eating it everyday for a meal. And the amount it came out to was like 3 or 4 cups worth and I slammed it all down. Very very very satisfying. I could go on and on about this!! This is my ice cream for life!

Made this again today. Forgot to add sweetner though. Not bad without it, but a little sweetner would have been better.

wel that depends on if they're on keto :). but nothing is unhealth in this

They are children. I let them eat as much as they want, just try to limit sugar and processed foods to the occasional treat.

You could use cream cheese for better keto macros, or even something like greek yogurt.
