Ingredients Needed To Make Keto Strawberry Ice Cream
This keto strawberry ice cream doesn't require that many ingredients! You might even already have these in your kitchen.
Heavy Whipping Cream
Heavy whipping cream is the base of this keto ice cream recipe and makes it extra rich and creamy. This is the ingredient that really replicates the kind of ice cream that you would buy in stores!
Eggs increase the richness of the ice cream, making it creamier and more satisfying. It might seem like a strange ingredient to have in ice cream, but trust me - it makes this recipe extra delicious!
A wonderful flavor that compliments the dairy and fresh strawberries, vanilla extract gives this ice cream an extra smooth and pleasing taste.
ChocZero Strawberry Syrup
This sugar-free syrup from ChocZero not only adds plenty of sweetness but adds additional strawberry flavor as well. This helps this recipe to really pop with fresh strawberries!
Sea salt helps to create a balance in all of the sweetness and richness of the ice cream. It gives the slightest hint of saltiness without being overpowering.
Fresh strawberries add a punch of flavor and texture to this ice cream, making it extra decadent and refreshing. Every scoop of ice cream is filled with delicious chunks of fresh strawberries.
Allulose is a low-calorie sweetener that is perfect for those following the keto diet. It helps to further sweeten this ice cream and makes the strawberry flavor come through even more.

Lemon extract adds the slightest hint of lemon, which compliments the strawberry flavor perfectly!
Please Note: Check out the recipe card at the bottom for a full list of ingredients used to make this low-carb recipe.
Quick Notes and Tips:
- Each serving contains 3g carbs from allulose, which isn't included in the count as it's non-impacting. A serving is about ½ cup and has about 5g net carbs (after subtracting allulose and fiber).
- The strawberries can be omitted for more scoopable ice cream since there is strawberry flavor in the syrup. 8 ounces of strawberries has a little over 17.4g carbs and 4.5g fiber, so eliminating them will save about 2g carbs per serving.
- To enhance the color of the ice cream, you can stir in some red food dye or beet juice powder.
- This recipe makes about 1 quart of ice cream. I recommend storing it in an ice cream tub with a tight-fitting lid.
- If your ice cream is too hard to scoop, let it sit out for a few minutes each time you want a serving.
How To Make No-Churn Keto Strawberry Ice Cream
This no-churn strawberry ice cream doesn't take much time to prepare and requires just a little bit of patience! With this easy ice cream recipe, you can enjoy as much homemade ice cream as you can eat!
In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients except the allulose, lemon extract, and strawberries. Heat the combined ingredients over medium heat until the liquid just starts to steam.
Be watchful since you do not want the liquid to begin boiling!
Chill And Prep
Pour the ice cream mixture into a heat-safe bowl and chill it in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours. If you are in a hurry, you can speed up this step by chilling the liquid in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes instead.
While the ice cream liquid is chilling, prep your strawberries by hulling and dicing them. Then, sprinkle them with allulose and lemon extract.
Whip Ice Cream
Once the ice cream liquid has chilled, use an electric mixer to whip the mixture, incorporating as much air as possible for 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the prepped fresh strawberries and pour everything into a freezer-safe container. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until hardened.
Once it has frozen completely, serve and enjoy!
