Keto Ice Cream Options Perfect for a Low-Carb Diet

One of the most searched phrases among those new to a low-carb or ketogenic diet is "keto ice cream." That's because a top concern when considering or starting the keto diet is having to give up your favorite desserts.

But with a little creativity and tasty sugar-free substitutes, most desserts can be keto-fied and taste very similar to their traditional carb-loaded counterparts. 

Keto ice cream is one of them and we're happy to see that more and more delicious options are available every day. 

How keto ice cream differs from traditional ice cream

Traditional ice cream contains cream and sugar, and eating one serving will put you over your daily carb limit if you're on the keto diet. 

Keto ice cream cuts most of the carbs by replacing the sugar with carb-free sugar substitutes. The most popular keto sweetener options include erythritol, xylitol, monk fruit, and stevia. To mimic the creaminess of traditional ice cream, manufacturers use ingredients such as chicory root, guar gum, xanthan gum, and acacia gum.

Many brands have responded to the consumer demand for keto ice cream. Most recently, Halo Top announced seven new keto-friendly flavors:

  1. Peanut Butter Chocolate
  2. Jelly Donut
  3. Caramel Butter Pecan
  4. Berry Swirl
  5. Chocolate Cheesecake
  6. Banana Cream Pie
  7. White Chocolaty Macadamia Nut 
According to Halo Top’s news release, they launched their keto line to support consumers looking to limit their sugar intake.
