Easy keto dessert for the win!
This keto 3-ingredient berry ice cream can be whipped up in a matter of minutes with components you may already have on hand! So if you’re needing a last-minute refreshing and sweet keto dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth, you’re going to love this quick and easy keto ice cream idea.
Recently, we saw this delicious ice cream idea over on the @traderjoeslist Instagram page where she used some frozen blueberries to whip up the sweet dessert. And the best part, only 3 simple ingredients were required, so we knew we had to give this refreshing summer treat a try, and of course, make it keto! 🙌
Are you a visual learner? This 3-ingredient keto ice cream recipe is SO easy to make that we even created a YouTube video:
Here are a few recipe tips to keep in mind when making this 3-ingredient keto ice cream:
- Store-bought frozen berries are perfect for this recipe, however, when berries are in season, you could also pick some delicious fresh berries and freeze them prior to making this recipe.
- I had delicious results with unsweetened almond milk mixed with heavy cream. However, if you want a smoother consistency, use all heavy cream instead. For a less heavy and rich ice cream, go with all almond milk.
- You can try this recipe with many different frozen berries that mash up easily. I tried it with blueberries and raspberries, but strawberries and blackberries could be another option.
- I found I needed to add less almond milk/heavy cream with the raspberries. You may want to start with a little less than the recipe below calls for when testing out different berry varieties.
- A keto-friendly sweetener, such as monk fruit or erythritol, can help minimize the tartness of the berries if needed. Plus, if you like your ice cream on the sweeter side, I’d definitely add some.
Making the recipe is incredibly simple. All you need are your favorite frozen berries, milk of your choice, and a little time to mix it together!
We tried this recipe out with blueberries and raspberries and loved the results with almond milk, although, you can get an even creamier consistency with some heavy cream. SO YUMMY!

Thanks! This was so good and so easy! I was in need of something sweet but had no energy to make anything too involved. Threw this together and the whole family loved it and asked for seconds!
Question though, I went to input this into the Carb Manager app, using their recipe upload feature and it is calculating the nutrition differently. It has the fiber content for a serving at 2.5, not 5. So I went and checked the package for the Trader Joe’s blueberries I used, they have 17 carbs and 4g fiber per cup, making the blueberries alone 6.5 net carbs per 1/2 cup serving. Can you confirm? Thanks!
Hi Leanne, I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed this recipe! I think the confusion was that our nutritional information was based on the recipe using raspberries rather than blueberries, but it definitely makes more sense for us to show both.
I’ve updated the post to include both variations and I think it will now align with your findings on the frozen blueberries. I hope that helps clarify the nutrition, and thank you for sharing your feedback with us! 😊
I appreciate you clarifying! 😀
Hi Leanne! So glad your family loved it! I just made some myself last week and it quickly dissapeared ❤
Nice. But when you are hooked on sweets a half cup is a trigger to disaster. Maybe when I on Keto diet longer.
Hi Ellen! It’s super delicious and healthy. But I can understand it being a trigger. Once your fat adapted you can easily add keto treats back in at your discretion ❤ Good luck on your journey! If you haven’t already your welcome to join us in the community on Facebook.
Can you make this with undiluted evaporated milk instead of cream? I always have evaporated milk in my pantry. I rarely buy heavy cream
Hi Kaydee! That is a great question, however evaporated milk is not a low carb/keto food. Due to the high lactose content it can cause fluctuations in your glucose levels adversely effecting your state of ketosis. You could just use all almond milk or coconut milk. The macros would change but it would still be low carb/keto. You can use a free app like carb manager to decipher the macros as well as find out what foods are best for a Ketogenic lifestyle.
We have some great resources too such as what foods to avoid. Hope this helps🥰
Do you put it in the freezer, or eat as is?
Just eat it!
Hello, thank you for the recipe. I am wondering if I can use xanthin gum as a thickener because I will be using coconut milk and strawberries only in your recipe. Thank you for taking the time to answer.
You can, BUT use it sparingly. Start with 1/8 teaspoon and mix very well. Let us know how it works for you, Leslie!
Hello Jennifer, thank you for taking the time to answer and giving me a starting place for the measurement of the gum. I WILL let you know how it works. I have strawberries that I have frozen and am going to start with those. Have a great day and please stay safe.
Looks delicious. Can you blend it to make a smoother consistency?
Hi Pamrin! I did throw mine in a Ninja blender and it had a soft serve icecream consistency. I saved half for the next night and just had to let it defrost a bit before eating. It was delicious. Hope this helps❤
Berries of any sort has sugar. Albiet natural sugar.
Is natural sugar Keto approved? If so, then I can enjoy my bananas.
HI Keeton! Yes, berries do have some natural sugars, but their carb counts are much lower than other fruits which is why we find them fine to enjoy in moderation. Bananas on the other hand are very high in natural sugars/carbs so we don’t typically recommend them unless you’re spreading a single banana across a large number of servings, like we did with our keto banana bread.
