I recently realized that I haven't posted a new ice cream recipe for over a year and a half! Here are all my low carb ice cream recipes!

This recipe was actually inspired by having some fresh ginger after making a Rosemary & Ginger Cocktail (recipe coming soon!), and I wanted to make a dish where the ginger was the complete star. It's a wonderful combination of flavors, and would work especially well as a dessert after an Indian or Thai meal.

How to Make Keto Ginger Ice Cream

To make the custard, combine some heavy cream, unsweetened almond milk, and low carb sweetener (I prefer to use allulose for ice cream recipes, as it helps keep the ice cream soft after freezing) together in a saucepan.

Place over a low heat and cook until the sweetener has dissolved and the mixture is warm. Next, place three egg yolks into a small bowl, then temper them by adding a spoonful of the cream mixture to the egg yolks and whisking rapidly to combine.

Add it back into the saucepan and stir again to mix. Turn the heat up slightly, and cook over a low-medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the mixture from the heat, pour it into a large bowl, and allow to cool. Also, try and remember to stir it every now and then to avoid a skin forming.

When the mixture has cooled, add some vanilla extract. Grate some fresh peeled ginger directly into the bowl, together with any juices. A Microplane is ideal for this task.

Cover and place the bowl in the fridge for at least 2 hours – overnight is fine.

After that time, pour it into an ice cream maker. Grind some black pepper into the maker as the mixture churns.

Follow the manufacturer's instructions so that it is well-churned, then spoon it into a container and freeze for at least four hours before serving.

This recipe makes a soft and scoopable ice cream (as featured in one of the techniques to make low carb SOFT ice cream) that has a wonderful creamy taste with some spice from the ginger and a subtle heat from the black pepper.
