Strawberries and lemon are a match made in heaven in this easy summer gelato! This keto ice-cream recipe uses creamy coconut milk, fresh strawberries and zesty lemon to balance the sweetness and creaminess.

Here's what you need to make this easy summer treat:

  • Berries. We're using strawberries but you can use other options such as blackberries, blueberries or raspberries instead.
  • Coconut milk. To keep this recipe dairy-free we are using full-fat coconut milk. For a creamier ice-cream you can use coconut cream instead.
  • Low-carb sweetener. We are using Allulose although it may not be available where you live. Powdered Erythritol, Swerve or a few drops of stevia are all good alternatives.
  • Protein powder. We are using collagen for that extra protein boost and creaminess. Instead of collagen you can use the same amount of whey protein isolate, egg white protein powder or plant-based pea protein powder.
  • Lemon zest. Fine lemon zest will add extra flavor! Make sure you are using organic lemons.
  • Vanilla extract. Alcohol-based vanilla extract will add flavor and keep the ice cream from freezing too hard.

We all have different dietary needs so it's only natural that you may need to adjust the macros in this keto recipe. You can make any adjustments directly in the KetoDiet App by cloning any of the recipes from my blog and customizing them to fit your macros and preferences.

Ice Cream Without an Ice Cream Maker

No ice cream maker? No problem! Simply swap frozen strawberries for the fresh strawberries. Additionally, place about a cup (240 ml) of the coconut milk in an ice tray and freeze for at least 2 hours. Blend the frozen strawberries and frozen coconut milk with all of the remaining ingredients. Pour into a container and freeze for 1 to 2 hours before serving.

How about low-carb sweeteners? You can use Erythritol or Erythritol-based sweeteners which are available in most countries. However, if you have the option, use Allulose. It's your best bet if you want to keep your ice cream soft.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

   Can I use canned coconut milk?  

Hi Patti, yes you can! The only difference might be the fat content as it is typically higher for canned coconut milk (unless you use light).
