Hazelnut, the magic and nutritional factor! Also a healthy alternative, the ice cream we are using is low carb and gluten free, along with the pea protein, coconut flour with the fiber and tahini this is a just a satisfying snack or dessert idea.


The base is soft and the filling of these is creamy thanks the the keto friendly ice cream, I used Killer Creamery. Other delicious low carb ice creams I love is Real Good Foods and Enlightened.


The base of this Hazelnut Caramel Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake:

The base is made with simple ingredients and Nuzest Smooth Vanilla pea protein and coconut flour to keep it nutrient dense and gluten free. Since we are not using any eggs we are tahini as our tasty ingredient that will keep the dough of this cake together.
