Frequently Asked Questions 

Is Ice-Cream Keto-Friendly?

Regular ice cream recipes or most ice cream brands you can find on the market are not keto-friendly since they are made with ingredients that are too high in carbs.

However, you can still enjoy delicious ice cream during a keto diet by making a few changes to the ingredients and using only low-carb ones, just like we did in this recipe.

Why Is My Coconut Milk Ice Cream Too Hard?

Due to its lower fat content, coconut milk ice cream can freeze harder than regular ice cream. But there is no problem since you soften it by letting it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before enjoying it.

  1. Do you use all the coconut milk or just the cream. At one point in the recipe you mention refrigerating the coconut milk so it’s easy to scoop out the cream.
