Keto Chocolate Ice Cream

This keto-friendly chocolate ice cream delivers! The egg yolk-based custard is the key to its full-bodied creaminess, while good-quality cocoa powder insures a rich chocolate flavor. We tested various keto-approved sugar substitutes and found some to be gritty or simply too sweet. Stevia adds just the right amount of sweetness without changing the texture. Take care not to over-churn, to avoid graininess.
