By Bree

Did you know that it’s possible to enjoy a phenomenally good slice of ice cream cake without having to feel even the least bit guilty about it? That isn’t just a dream. It can be a reality for everyone thanks to this cookies and cream keto ice cream cake recipe. It’s made with a fantastic mix of healthy, all-natural ingredients that even includes a homemade “ice cream” made with heavy cream and a low carb sweetener like Stevia. My kids used to always beg me to take them to Dairy Queen to get an ice cream cake for their birthdays, but after trying this recipe, now they aren’t just begging me to make this for birthdays — they want it all the time!

Cookies and Cream Keto Ice Cream Cake

A Delicious Frozen Treat

You’re going to want to prepare your cake base before doing anything else, so go ahead and mix your almond flour and coconut flour together in a bowl. There are quite a few reasons why you’ll be using those two types of flour in particular for this recipe. For starters, they’re both excellent keto-friendly baking ingredients as they’re good sources of fat, protein, and fiber. Almond flour and coconut flour are both also low in carbs, unlike refined wheat flour. Worse yet, all-purpose flour made with wheat has also been found to be linked to the inflammation of chronic health conditions due to a protein found in wheat. (1)

After setting aside your flour mix, you’ll want to beat together your eggs and Stevia until the mixture is pale and fluffy. Next, reduce the speed to low and gradually mix in your melted butter, vanilla extract, and melted dark chocolate. Adding sugar-free dark chocolate like this will help to give your cake base it’s “cookies” aspect in addition to providing quite a few benefits when it comes to your heart health and reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Cocoa and dark chocolate are both known to provide some impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties thanks to polyphenols found within them. (2) Just be certain to use a dark chocolate that is sugar-free in order to keep the carb content of this cake to a minimum.

You can then add the almond flour mixture into your dark chocolate mix until they’re both well combined before throwing the cake batter into the oven for about 25 minutes. While the cake is baking, you can make the condensed milk by adding one cup of heavy cream into a saucepan, bringing it to a boil, and then allowing it to simmer for 45-50 minutes over a low heat. You can then finish it off by stirring in a bit of Stevia.

Once your cake comes out of the oven, slice it into two layers. After placing one layer into your springform pan, crumble the remaining layer into small crumbs. With that out of the way, whisk together two cups of cold heavy cream and ¼ cup of Stevia, and then fold half of this mixture until your cooled condensed milk before adding in the cake crumbs. You’ve now got a rich and creamy low carb cookies and cream “ice cream” mixture all set and ready to go, so go ahead and and pour it over your cake base. You can add the rest of your whipped cream mixture to the cake as decoration before you freeze it for 4-6 hours.

  1. Hi..I just found your page..These recipes sound and look AMAZING!! WE are new to the Keto lifestyle change, and as a Gramma ..I love having the option to bake again for my son, whom I live with and his boys who visit, on weekends.Dad is doing Keto, and misses his desserts with his boys.And hard to have them in the house when the boys are not here. Thanks for all these recipes I can make and he doesn’t feel left out or deprived. Sweets aren’t a problem for me as I have health issues that restrict me from sugar .
    I do have a question?? Can I sub monk fruit for the sweetness you suggest or xylitol??
