Sugar Free, High Protein Ice Cream Recipes

icecream

I developed these recipes after having gastric bypass surgery, when I was no longer able to tolerate sugar and needed to be on a high protein diet. I was thrilled to be able to have ice cream again, and it was actually healthy for me! In addition to those who have had weight loss surgery, anyone needing a diet low in sugar and high in protein can enjoy these recipes. They are excellent for diabetics. Those on a low carb diet can also enjoy them.

Tips for Making Sugar Free, High Protein Ice Cream

Blend ingredients gently in a blender before pouring into ice cream maker to make sure ingredients are fully mixed.

Add chocolate chips, nuts, or other hard ingredients five minutes before ice cream is finished freezing.

If any ingredients must be cooked or heated, cool completely before adding to ice cream maker. You can make an ice bath by filling a large bowl with water and ice and then submerging the pan or dish with the warm ingredients in the ice water.
