I’m not a fan of buying processed sugar-free desserts made with industrial preservatives, stabilizers, and artificial sweeteners. Recreating easy keto recipes at home is so much more rewarding and often times, even more delicious!
Prepping keto desserts from unprocessed, whole food ingredients is usually pretty and always provides better nutrition.
This No-Churn Mason Jar Keto Ice Cream shows how easily you can make your own dessert entirely from natural, organic ingredients without any artificial flavors, preservatives, or added sugar.
That’s a big win for anyone on a sugar-free keto diet!
The Secret for the Best Sugar-free Chocolate
The difference between cacao is palpable. Living in Ecuador (known in the chocolate world for it’s heirloom cacao seed) has afforded me the opportunity to source real quality cacao products. I’ve shared what makes our cacao stand apart from others, in short it is a fair-trade certified artisanal cacao bean, 100% organic and biodynamically grown in old growth shade forests. We offer all the cacao foods you need for homemade chocolate making in our shop with domestic USA shipping. International shipping tends to be very expensive but if you are interested in a quote on a bulk order, contact me here.
In this recipe, a pinch of sweetness (without the blood sugar roller coaster and crazy mental/emotional triggers) is made possible by Lakanto’s powdered Monkfruit sweetener.
Lakanto is my first choice as a keto-friendly sweetener for all keto desserts. In this recipe I prefer the powdered formula over whole erithrytol because it blends well into the cacao mixture, sometimes the whole crystals leave a slightly crunchy texture.

I use Lakanto exclusively but if you also use whole or powdered erythritol or liquid stevia drops instead. Replace Lakanto with equal amounts of erythritol, use stevia drops to taste.
Tips for No-Churn Keto Ice Cream
Prepare yourself for some shaking! Without an ice cream machine, you will be the one doing the mixing. Don’t worry, it only takes a few minutes.
Source raw cream if you can! (Read my Tips on How to Find Quality Food here.)
Pull the ice cream out at least 5 minutes before serving, allow it to sit and warm up a little before trying to scoop.
Serve with any of your favorite toppings: cacao nibs, finely shredded coconut, chopped nuts, etc.
For more ideas on how to use cacao nibs, browse this list of Ways to use Cacao Nibs on a Keto Diet.
This ice cream is freezer friendly and can be made in bulk.
Use my favorite keto sugar substitute to keep chocolate free from refined-sugar, added sugar, or artificial sugars.
Salt can add a surprising variation to the flavor. I like Red Alaea salt in my keto desserts.
This recipe yields 2 cups, I divided it into 4 servings. If you only make 2 serving, adjust macros accordingly.
With only 4 g net carbs per serving, No-Churn Keto Ice Cream is a delicious, guilt-free way to enjoy a healthy dose of chocolate while staying on the path of a keto diet.
The recipe below is 100% gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, low-carb, ketogenic and sugar-free!
