The sun is shining and I'm ready for summer! And nothing says a summer treat like some amazing ice cream (although who am I kidding, I eat ice cream year-round). To avoid messing up my diet, I have to make sure that there are some low carb alternatives available for me to enjoy. So I was very pleased to be asked to try out this ice cream mix from LC Foods – and I chose strawberry flavor!
The nutritional data certainly looks impressive – when the ice cream is made up (by adding water, heavy cream and vanilla extract), ½ cup contains only 1.6g net carbs. 1.2 of those are sugar alcohols – so if you don't include them in your carb counting – it's only 0.4g net!
I added the ice cream mix, water and extract to a blender. After blending for two minutes, I added the cream, and blended again.
I transferred the mixture to a bowl, covered it and placed it in the freezer for an hour. Then I poured it into my ice cream maker, and let it churn for a while before scooping into a serving dish.
I decided to add in some fresh strawberries, so I hulled them (with my SUPER fancy gadget!) and chopped them up small.
I stirred them into the ice cream and placed it in the freezer. When it was ready, I did a taste test. For the carb count, this is pretty good. The fresh strawberries definitely finish it off perfectly. Highly recommended!
