My keto berry ice cream was probably the fastest recipe I’ve ever come up with. Frankly, it made me feel like a kid working on a science project. 

I knew I wanted something quick and easy that wouldn’t make a big mess. I’d heard of freezer bag ice cream but the idea of shaking a bag full of coconut milk and berries made me fear it might end up on the walls instead of in our bellies.

In order to make my keto berry ice cream, I  grabbed my full-fat coconut milk, some frozen berries, and a couple of teaspoons of sugar substitute.

I tossed all the ingredients into my cup and began to stir. What happened next took me by surprise, in a happy dance around the kitchen kind of way.

You see my little concoction immediately began to freeze. What I had not accounted for was how the frozen berries would help my ice cream freeze faster. “Oh wow, how cool is this?”

I placed it in the freezer and a few minutes later I had a delicious keto ice cream in under 5 minutes! At that point, all I had to do was stir and enjoy.

How To Make 5 Minute Keto Berry Ice Cream

Now as I mentioned, this is a quick, easy, mess-free, and churn-free keto ice cream! It really doesn’t get much easier than this recipe. 

You’re really just throwing all the ingredients into a large one-gallon ziplock bag, mixing it up (not shaking wildly but go ahead if you dare), and place in the freezer for 5 minutes. That’s it! 

I was serious when I said this recipe is extremely easy! No mess, barely any waiting, and low in carbs, what more can you ask for in a dessert?!

After 5 minutes, your keto berry ice cream will be ready to eat. If you prefer a firmer ice cream you can leave it in the freezer for an additional 5 minutes or so until your desired level of frozen goodness is achieved.

The most important thing to remember when making this recipe is that your frozen berries need to be straight from the freezer and completely frozen. This is crucial in the ice cream coming together and freezing quickly.

Best Sugar-Substitutes For Low-Carb Berry Ice Cream

My top choice is a monk fruit/erythritol blend. My personal favorite is Lakanto’s brand. But you can also use Swerve an erythritol sugar substitute. 

However, when it comes to this keto ice cream you will have to use a confectioner’s sugar substitute. Both Lakanto and Swerve have great ones.

If you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda for baking or a generic brand of the same. It will work 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.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

In case you don’t know, our family came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.  I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith.

Keto Berry Ice Cream in Under 5 Minutes

Yield: 5
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Active Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

It's a quick keto berry ice cream that is low in carbs, dairy-free, churn-free, and keto-friendly. Make delicious low-carb berry ice cream in 5 minutes! Mix everything into a one-gallon ziplock bag and watch the ice cream magically appear.



  1. In a gallon plastic freezer bag, combine the coconut milk, frozen sliced berries, and confectioner's sugar substitute and stir.
  2. The coconut milk will begin to freeze instantly because of the ice-cold berries.
  3. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes up to 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the freezer once you have your desired frozen texture. For a "softer" ice cream 5 minutes is perfect. If you prefer a firmer ice cream you can leave it in the freezer for longer. Stir before serving and enjoy!


I recommend using a confectioner's sugar substitute but you can use granulated if it's all you have on hand. If using granulated, double the amount you use.

For a more complex flavor, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

This keto ice cream does not store well and is meant to be eaten in the moment. It will freeze solid if left too long in the freezer.
