How To Make A Keto Vanilla Bean Ice Cream 

Making this keto ice cream is super easy. It’s a recipe for a 2-quart ice cream maker. If you are using a larger ice cream maker you can double the recipe easily. 

I also share instructions on how to make it without an ice cream maker below. 

You’ll start by splitting the vanilla bean in half and using the back of a knife, scrape the insides of the bean from the vanilla pod. Set both the seeds and pod aside. Note that you will be using both in this recipe.

Next, pour the heavy cream, sugar substitute, water, salt, vanilla extract, and the seeds from the vanilla pod along into a large bowl and whisk well. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for one hour or overnight.

Keep in mind, that the longer the vanilla bean pod and seeds are allowed to steep in the cream mixture the more pronounced the vanilla flavor will be. In my opinion, it’s worth waiting a minimum of an hour but for maximum flavor leave longer. 

If using an ice cream maker pour the ice cream mixture into the ice cream maker and process the vanilla mixture according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Or until the ice cream is set to your preference.

Store any leftovers in a well-covered airtight container. You will need to allow the ice cream to melt on the kitchen counter until it’s scoopable again.

No-Churn Vanilla Bean Keto Ice Cream Instructions

Once the ice cream mixture has allowed for the vanilla to be infused, pour the ice cream into a metal pan or pans depending on what you have. Then place the ice cream into the freezer for about an hour.

At the one-hour mark, remove the ice cream from the freezer and stir the ice cream breaking up any ice crystals. Then place it back into the freezer. You will repeat this step 2 more times for a total of 3 hours. The no-churn ice cream is now ready to scoop and enjoy.

If you have any leftovers, you will need to allow the ice cream to melt on the kitchen counter until it’s scoopable again.

Best Sugar-Substitutes For Keto Ice Cream

When it comes to choosing your sweetener for this homemade sugar-free vanilla ice cream recipe, I have several low-carb options that work well.

I really like Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener because the texture is spot on and because there is barely any aftertaste.  Plus it uses only natural ingredients.

This is a great one especially if you are new to sugar substitutes because it mimics sugar the most in my opinion.

I’m also partial to Swerve an erythritol blend. Although you should keep in mind that it does have a bit more of a cooling aftertaste that some people dislike. 

Alternatively, you could also use a stevia and erythritol-based brand like Pyure.  This is if you prefer to use stevia in your baked goods. If you go this route you need to reduce the amount by half since it is twice as sweet. 

Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with great success.

I know not everyone would agree with me here and I respect that but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar. 

How To Store Homemade Ice Cream

Store your homemade keto ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer. These reusable ice cream containers are made specifically for ice cream. 

Add a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to the top of the ice cream and store for up to three weeks. 

Make Your Own Vanilla Bean Extract

If you’re a fan of vanilla, you might want to try making your own vanilla bean extract. Honestly, it’s a game-changer. 

The best part is that you can use a homemade vanilla extract kit that walks you through the process. 

Making your own vanilla extract is not only delicious but will save you money. The only hard part is waiting for the allotted time for the vanilla beans to be extracted.
