keto vanilla ice cream in a jar

Ready to make keto ice cream at home using a mason jar?!

Yep, it’s a fun and simple way to create delicious homemade keto ice cream without using an ice cream maker.

The best part – this dessert recipe requires just 3 main ingredients, and it happens to be a great arm workout, too! Get your kids involved and make it a family activity – so fun!

All that shaking will eventually result in a rich and creamy keto ice cream you can customize in so many ways. Add berries, nuts, or any other keto toppings such as sugar-free caramel.

I could personally LIVE on simple vanilla ice cream, but feel free to customize this idea to your taste!

Hip Recipe Tips:

  • Swap traditional sugar for a keto-friendly sweetener. Ice cream is one of those recipes that’s way EASY to make keto-friendly because all you really have to do is change the sweetener to a keto-approved one. I’m using Swerve for this, as it’s my favorite, and it works great here! Check our Guide to Keto Sweeteners for more info.
  • Shake it for a full 5 minutes! This will ensure the cream will double in size and result in yummy ice cream.
  • Plan for freezing time. You will need about 3-4 hours for the ice cream to freeze (it’s worth the wait)!

We love making this yummy and easy keto ice cream!

In my opinion, this rich dessert doesn’t even taste keto, and it’s a nice treat to help you stay on track when you’re having ice cream cravings. The clever mason jar method is a pretty handy trick to know about!

    How do you convert the swerve measurement to monk fruit sweetener?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      1 tablespoon Swerve sweetener = 1 tablespoon of Monkfruit Sweetener
      Hope this helps!

  2. Jessica

    Looks awesome! Do you use granulated swerve or powdered?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jessica! You can use the granulated. Find that variety through the link above. Hope that helps!

  3. Melissa

    Can you use a food processor or blender instead of shaking the jar for 5 minutes? Then put it in an ice cream maker? Would this qualify as a fat bomb? So simple, and delicious for a once a week treat. Thanks.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Melissa! Maybe try a hand mixer or whisk instead. This way you can still incorporate air into the cream and get the desired consistency. Hope that helps!

  4. Sally

    Can you use a plastic jar? I have some I use instead of the glass mason jars.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya I would think that could work too! Let us know 👍

  5. Joe

    Ive got an Cuisinart ice cream machine, ill give it a try!

  6. Joe

    Was it sweet? My Cuisinart recipe I usually use is 2 cups cream, 1 cup milk and 3/4 cup sugar. I realize this is 1 cup cream , so it must make a third of the amount but that would be 1/4 cup sugar ratio…Ill try it in my machine tonight

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You’ll have to let us know what you think, Joe!

  7. Sandy Flint

    Could you possibly substitute honey or pure maple syrup for the Swerve sweetener? If so, how would you convert the sweeteners? I don’t have Swerve in my house and I’m trying to stay away from the grocery store.

  8. Tara

    Could I add unsweetened coca powder to this?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      YES!

  9. ybacat

    Just made this today; SUPER easy and tasty! Thanks for helping me along my journey. Stay well.

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! We are so glad that you loved it❤ Thanks for your awesome feedback!

  10. michellebadair

    We just put it in the freezer so so don’t know how it tastes, but we had so much fun making it. I let my daughter smash an Oreo and put it in hers (not Keto…I know) and we added NS cocoa powder to my son’s. We can’t wait to try it!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, How fun! Enjoy! 😋

  11. Brenda

    Hey there,
    Does this ice cream get rock hard? That’s the problem I have when making Keto ice cream.
    Thank you

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm it does get pretty hard since mostly cream. You can just set it out a bit before hand – or just not let it get super frozen.

  12. Ellie

    I bought a whipped cream dispenser that I’ve been using to make desserts. it has been fantastic and I recently wondered what the output would do in an ice cream maker. Maybe I’ll just try releasing some into a freezer container and freeze for a few hours. Not as much “fun”, but might be scrumptious.
    I highly recommend a whipped cream dispenser. Mine is from Amazon, of course. I add a bit of vanilla and some “fake sugar” (whatever is on hand). I mix it with thawed frozen blueberries — just a few — and it’s delicious.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! Thanks for the suggestion, Ellie!

  13. Izzy143

    Can I use whipped cream instead oh heavy cream ?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yep!

  14. Jaime

    Oh my goodness, made this tonight and it is heavenly!! So much creaminess, and vanilla is my favorite flavor! I had the hardest time not eating the entire jar. Thank you! 😋

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome, Jamie!
