Traditional ice cream vs. this low carb ice cream bites recipe: There are nearly 19 grams of carbs in half a cup of chocolate ice cream. Hard pass on that sugar crash. Also, who eats only half a cup of ice cream?!
The ingredients for this keto ice cream are super duper simple, but here’s the skinny in case you aren’t familiar with them:
Heavy Cream – Use heavy or whipping cream, either will do the job.
Erythritol – If you haven’t heard of it yet, this diabetes and keto-friendly sugar substitute is going to be your new best friend. I use it in a TON of my recipes and sing its praises on the regular!
Lakanto and Swerve are my two fave brands.
Tools To Make
Here’s whatcha need to make this low carb ice cream bites recipe:
- A metal bowl. PRO TIP: make sure it’s ICE COLD by popping it in the freezer 20 minutes before you make the whipped cream, this will make you whipping even easier.
- A whisk or mixer for whipping up that sweet goodness.
- A small bowl to melt the chocolate in
- A mold, to scoop the ice cream into. I use this one!
- Cooking sheet or plate to put the chocolate-dipped ice cream bites in the freezer.
You can store these bad boys in your fridge or freezer!
Want to make this low carb ice cream bites recipe your own?! Here are some ideas on how to do that:
- Add fruit powders! Never heard of them? They’re just freeze-dried fruit in powder form. They’re genius because they add awesome color and fruity flavor. I like using powdered low carb fruits, such as: raspberries (sooo delish with chocolate!), strawberry, or blackberries.
- Add nuts. Add some additional protein with some low carb nuts! Some of my faves? Pecans, walnuts, peanuts, almonds… get nutty!
- Use cream cheese instead of heavy cream. Ala cheesecake fat bombs, cream cheese adds a deliciously tangy and sweet flavor. Check out my cream cheese fat bombs for some sweet inspiration!
- Use different kinds of chocolate. Chocolate lovers unite! Add your go-to, whether it’s low carb dark chocolate or sugar free white chocolate, or milk chocolate as I used here.
- Don’t forget about extracts… You can change the flavor profile of your whipped cream to whatever you are craving! Mint, orange, vanilla, etc. Go crazy, it’s so fun to try different ones out!

- Combine cold heavy cream (1 cup) and erythritol (2 1/2 tablespoons ) in a metal bowl using the whisk attachment of an electric mixer -- option to place the bowl and mixing attachment in the freezer for 20 minutes before starting (will make whipping the heavy cream easier!).
- Whisk until cream reaches soft peaks.
- Scoop whipped cream into mold or a muffin tin pan lined with liners.
- Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or until you're able to remove the whipped cream from the mold in one piece.
- Melt Low Carb Chocolate (1 cup) and coconut oil (1 tablespoon) together in a small bowl (I do this in the microwave using 30-second intervals).
- You'll want to work quickly after pulling ice cream bites out of the freezer. If they become difficult to work with, place back in the freezer.Dip each piece of whipped cream in the melted chocolate, and place on a cooking sheet. Once you've dipped all the whipped cream pieces, place cookie sheet in the freezer until the chocolate sets.
- Store in the freezer and enjoy!
Fans Also Made These Low Carb Recipes:
- Chocolate. I love Lily's chocolate chips for this (they make dark, semi-sweet, and milk) but you can always make your own low carb chocolate by following my recipe!
- Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste.
- Molds. I used this silicone mold from Amazon.
- Nutritional information is based on 1 bite, if you make 18 bites using this recipe. The information below was calculated using Lily's Milk Chocolate Chips. Each bite contains an additional 2g sugar alcohols, so each bite has 1g net carbs:
