27 Healthy Ice Cream Recipes You’ll Swoon Over

Although I have no problem eating ice cream all year round (in fact I used to work in an ice cream parlor — BAD idea, in case you were wondering), with the weather getting warmer, it most certainly is time for making and eating ice cream.

In celebration of that, I scoured the internet to bring to you all some fabulously yummy-looking low-carb ice cream recipes that also happen to be dairy-free.

Since my son has a life-threatening dairy allergy, and it appears that I don’t do well with dairy either, traditional ice cream isn’t an option–and since we’re all on varying degrees of the candida diet, low carb is a must for us as well.

If you’ve ever tried to find low-carb ice cream that is also dairy-free, you know that it can be extremely expensive.

We have occasionally treated ourselves to a pint at a Whole Foods while on a trip, but the $7.99 sticker makes the ice cream somehow taste not as good, you know?

So here are some great options for you and yours to enjoy low-carb ice cream without breaking the budget.

Time to break out the ice cream maker and popsicle molds for sure!

27 Healthy Ice Cream Recipes – dairy-free and low-carb

Just a note about these vegan ice cream recipes – some of them use coconut sugar, or a really small amount of honey.  If you like, substitute in stevia or another low carb sweetener of your choice.  If chocolate chips are used, you can use these sugar-free chocolate chips or my Homemade Chocolate Chips recipe for a low carb option.
