no-churn chocolate ice cream


Adapted from:



Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: 3/4 cup (175ml) // 1 large scoop OR two small scoops




1/2 cup (120ml) erythritol or xylitol 

2.5 cups (590ml) heavy cream (>30% fat) // OR // coconut cream, CHILLED

4 Tbs. (20g) cocoa powder

(optional) 1 Tbsp. CHILLED vodka // OR // other zero-carb liqueur // OR // MCT oil

(optional) 2 tsp. vanilla extract

(optional) 1/2 tsp. salt



1. Place 1 cup (240ml) of cream, the cocoa powder, erythritol and salt in a large microwaveable bowl and heat until the erythritol has fully dissolved, about 2-3 minutes on high (make sure to stop and mix every 30 seconds to ensure even heating).


2. Once fully liquefied and well combined, mix in the vodka and vanilla, then chill this cocoa mixture in the freezer while you whip up the remaining heavy cream to soft peaks. 


3. Once the cocoa mixture has cooled to room temperature or colder (ideally between 40-60 degrees F), whisk in a few spoonfuls of the whipped cream. Then gently fold in half of the remaining whipped cream at a time into the cocoa mixture until everything is fully combined, making sure not to over-mix.


4. Spoon into an air-tight container and freeze for at least 5 hours, ideally overnight. Let soften for 15-20 minutes in the fridge before serving.

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
