  • Chill mixture. Place blender cup of ice cream mixture in the freezer for 1 hour prior to churning so it gets very cold, but not frozen.

What I used:
Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk click here (always buy FULL FAT. The low fat is watered down and will be icy) Buying in bulk on Amazon makes it cheaper ;)
Bulk Supplements Pure Stevia Powder click here - I love this brand because it's ONE ingredient and it does not have strong aftertaste or weird metallic taste. Just pure natural sweetness. Yum.
Homemade Almond Butter made by blending 2 cups dry roasted almonds for 5-10 min in a food processor until drippy.
Mexican Vanilla: click here Incredible flavor!

To store: Keep frozen. ***Due to lack of stabilizers/additives, the texture is BEST when freshly churned and frozen and enjoyed the same day it's made. If frozen solid, soften in the fridge.
Sweetener swap: You may use any dry powdered sweetener you like such as monkfruit (coconut sugar for non-keto) -- the equivalent of 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. Always taste and adjust to your preferred sweetness. Liquid sweeteners are not recommended, as they usually make the mixture too icy.
