This homemade keto ice cream cake has layers of fluffy low carb cake, sugar free ice cream and creamy whipped topping. It's the ultimate celebration cake!

This keto cake is the best way to celebrate any special occasion. Instead of looking for a sugar free birthday cake or ice cream, why not combine the two and make a decadent ice cream cake!

With both homemade layers and store-bought layers, this cake is simple but still impressive.  The keto cake and ice cream are store-bought while the mocha whipped topping is made fresh. Although you could make your own keto chocolate ice cream if you really want to go all out!

This keto ice cream cake has layers of fluffy sugar free cake, keto chocolate ice cream and a creamy whipped topping with a special raw cacao powder twist that gives incredible flavor.

Instead of ordinary cocoa powder, I partnered with Earth Echo and used two scoops of Cacao Bliss for this recipe.

Cacao Bliss is a raw cacao powder blended with superfoods. It contains cinnamon (to help regulate sugars and for gut support), turmeric (for inflammation), black pepper (to increase the bioavailability of the turmeric), himalayan salt (for balancing pH levels), lucuma (to help with the body’s repair mechanisms), coconut nectar (a prebiotic for gut health).

It gives a unique flavor to the chocolate whipped topping that tastes better than regular cocoa powder. If you want to try Cacao Bliss, use my code KETOFOCUS to save 15% off your order.

    Keto cake mixes

    Instead of making a cake from scratch, I find it easier to use a boxed or package cake mix. Luckily, there are many companies coming out with keto cake mix. Several are gluten free and use fairly clean ingredients. Here are some of my favorites.

    • King Arthur – 2 g net carbs per serving; gluten free; sweetened with stevia
    • Duncan Hines – 4 g net carbs per serving; gluten free; sweetened with allulose and stevia
    • Good Dees – 2 g net carbs per serving; gluten free; sweetened with erythritol and stevia
    • Keto and Co – 1.8g net carbs per serving; gluten free; sweetened with erythritol and monk fruit

    Sugar free ice cream

    If I had a choice, I would use homemade ice cream in this keto ice cream cake recipe; however, I don’t always have the time. Instead, use store-bought ice cream! Here are some of my favorites:

    • Rebel Ice Cream – Usually around 3-6 g net carbs per pint!
    • Keto Pint – Around 3 g net carbs per serving
    • Nick’s – Usually around 7 – 9 g net carbs per serving
