Heavy whipping cream is the main ingredient in premium ice cream. Ketogenic ice cream can be made from a simple recipe of heavy cream plus fruit, nuts or cocoa powder. Shown here are blueberry and strawberry ice cream. These were prepared by mixing crushed fruit into whipped cream then freezing for 15 minutes. The chocolate version is heavy cream plus unsweetened (powdered) cocoa. Ice cream can be planned as a snack or as part of or an entire meal (what kid wouldn't love to be offered ice cream for dinner)! Egg white powder can be incorporated to increase the protein required in a meal. Adding a high-fat yogurt such as Fage Total in about the same amount as the cream will result in a custard-like icecream (and more protein). Oils can be stirred into ice cream mixtures to increase the ratio. MCT oil is lighter in taste than vegetable oils and mixes in beautifully. An ice cream maker is helpful for making a great texture but you can also freeze your mixture. Thanks to Leslie Moccia (Zachary's mom)for contributing to this recipe.
