Chocolate Almond Ice Cream Pies (Low Carb)
Now that summer days are upon us a good ice cream recipe sounded like a great idea, plus it has been a while since I have been wanting to try a keto/low carb ice cream for a while. I will get more into detail below, but for now let's focus on the basics of the recipe.
Since we have been in lockdown (I'm currently writing this during quarantine) my freezer is pretty much stocked with all the goods. I'm feeling extremely grateful for that and that I still have the opportunity to create fun recipes to keep my entertained and sane during these times.
With this recipe I wanted to step up the game of the typical ice cream treat and I wanted to create a delicious recipe combining different flavors and textures while keeping it low carb, diabetic friendly and enjoyable.
I can tell for you fact that this recipe hits the spot! For each serving we have 8.8 grams of protein making this a great filling afternoon snack or post workout. This recipe is also very low in net carbs since the ice cream I use (Real Good Foods) has allulose as a sweetener.
This is made from natural food sources and it doesn't have a glycemic impact. It's also keto friendly and it doesn't have a weird after taste.
As for step up I wanted to add a chocolate mint base using Natural Force - Organic Plant Based Protein in Chocolate Mint Flavor. This is one of the best brands, all of their quality is amazing, minimal ingredients, great sources and the taste is amazing.
I love playing with their protein powders I have some recipes using for example their Vanilla Chai Plant Based Protein and they Organic Vanilla Whey, all linked below!
Anyways, back to this recipe. Yes! The base is made from their Chocolate Mint Protein Powder, topped with this low carb ice cream, some chopped almonds and Magic Spoon Cereal! My favorite low carb, keto friendly cereal that always takes me back to my childhood.
If you haven't tried it yet you cannot miss out, use the code PURELYHL for discount! You are going to love them all! In here I decided to use the Cacao one, for more chocolate goodness.
This is a great easy peasy, No-Bake recipe that you are going to love! Creamy, dreamy, flavorful and will make your tastebuds happy, trust me! And without no further ado, let's get started on the recipe!
