This Keto Mocha Coffee Ice Cream recipe makes any coffee and ice cream lover’s dream come true! It is the perfect dessert to have during the warm Summer days as it is super refreshing! It is also very satisfying considering it is higher in fats due to the heavy cream used.

With this recipe you won’t have to give up ice cream on a low carb diet as it makes for a great keto alternative to your average ice cream since it does not contain any unnecessary sugars. It is also one of the easiest ice cream recipes out there as it only has 3 steps and the ingredients used are typically found in most keto pantries. All of the ingredients in this recipe have an individual role which is key to creating the ultimate texture and flavor of the final product, so make sure not to skip out on any of the ingredients.

This keto coffee ice cream is not made with eggs. It is a foolproof way of making keto ice cream since you don’t have to worry about tempering eggs or about the egg curdling when making the custard. Additionally, this recipe uses vodka to get a creamy, smooth texture. You can omit the alcohol if you prefer, but you might not get the same texture, especially when taking the ice cream out of the freezer.

The secret ingredient we use in this recipe and which gives the taste a unique twist is Cacao Bliss. Through the use of Cacao Bliss, you get a delicious cinnamon mocha flavor. Cacao Bliss is a raw cacao powder blend that contains superfoods like cinnamon and turmeric. Cacao Bliss is what turns this ice cream from your average coffee flavor to a tasty mocha. Apart from adding to the taste, the powder also adds health benefits to the ice cream due to the superfoods in the blend.

For this keto coffee ice cream recipe, you can use an ice cream maker to churn it. However, if you don’t own one, you can easily just put it in a freezer safe container and place in the freezer to set the ice cream instead.

 This recipe can be prepared ahead of time and it is one which the whole family will love and will be asking you to do more of! You can easily increase the amounts of the ingredients if you require a larger batch.

What is Cacao Bliss?

Cacao Bliss is used in this recipe as a replacement for traditional cocoa powder and it gives the ice cream its chocolatey taste. Cacao Bliss is better than the average cocoa powder as it is low in carbs and is made of a delicious blend of raw cacao powder and superfoods such as turmeric and black pepper. Turmeric is typically used to control inflammation, while black pepper increases the bioavailability of the turmeric. The blend is also made of cinnamon, lucuma and MCT powder which help to control blood sugars. Cacao Bliss can be used in any keto baking recipes which require unsweetened cocoa powder. It is lightly sweetened with monk fruit, which makes it taste even better than other low carb chocolate powders! Cacao Bliss is an amazing addition to this recipe as it adds health benefits to the keto coffee ice cream and it also enhances the flavor!

What is the Purpose of the Alcohol?

When making homemade ice cream, especially keto ice cream, it does not tend stay soft and ready to scoop out of the tub as store-bought ice cream usually does. The alcohol is added to soften the ice cream. Otherwise, if you freeze the cream based ice cream mixture without alcohol, it will be rock hard after a few hours in the freezer. You can use any white distilled spirit. We suggest using vodka or white rum since they have a neutral flavor and are clear.

Substitutions for Alcohol

There are a few substitutions you can use if you don’t want to use alcohol in this recipe. You can use a sugar free syrup like allulose syrup. ChocZero’s vanilla syrup also works well as it has a similar effect and adds a hint of vanilla to the taste. We recommend using 1/4 cup of allulose syrup or ChocZero syrup instead of the vodka and the sugar free sweetener.

Ice Cream Machine

An ice cream machine is not required for this recipe. Thus, if you don’t have one at home you don’t need to go out and buy one as this recipe can still be done without an ice cream machine. It is not necessary to churn the ice cream but if you do, the result will be creamier and if you use an electric one, you don’t even need to wait, you can enjoy your ice cream straight away!

Chill For 2 Hours

Waiting 2 hours before churning your keto coffee ice cream allows the flavors time to meld together. It also helps with the texture of the ice cream – making it softer and creamier, which results in the perfect ice cream texture!
