After whipping up about a dozen keto ice cream recipes in the last few weeks, I can’t say that I’m getting enough of it.
Not at all, actually.
It’s so amazing to always have a great frozen keto treat at hand, especially on those super hot summer days.
I’m always more drawn to creamy ice cream recipes, whereas my boyfriend Alex is a bigger fan of fruity recipes.
In addition to liking fruity keto ice creams more in general, he is also known as the blueberry guy in our house.
So making a keto blueberry ice cream was a no brainer.
This sugar free blueberry ice cream recipe is perfectly suitable for the ketogenic diet with only 4g net carbs per serving and it’s also one of the most beautiful ice cream recipes I made so far.
Just look at that color!
And it’s not even edited in Photoshop or enhanced through food coloring, that’s just natural blueberry goodness.

KETO BLUEBERRY ICE CREAM INGREDIENTS:
This section is where I share a few tips and suggestions regarding the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe. ☺️
(You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card that’s embedded below this section!)
- heavy cream
- powdered erythritol:Why do I love Erythritol so much?
In my opinion, Erythritol is the best keto-friendly sweetener.
– it doesn’t spike your blood sugar,
– it’s completely safe and
– has a very fresh & natural sweet taste.
Because of its natural origin and natural production process (fermentation), I also consider erythritol to be paleo-friendly.
You can use other powdered keto-friendly sweeteners that won’t spike your blood sugar as well, but be aware that you may have to add more or less sweetener if you do so.
Erythritol is about 70% as sweet as sugar whereas other keto-friendly sweeteners like monk fruit and stevia are much sweeter than sugar.
Keep that ratio in mind when using a 1:1 sugar replacement.
- frozen or fresh blueberries:
It doesn’t really matter if you use fresh or frozen blueberries, just make sure the blueberries are ripe and sweet – the ripeness of your blueberries can affect your the taste of your final blueberry ice cream quite a bit.
- (optional) lemon juice:
A bit of additional lemon juice enhances the natural sourness of the blueberries.
- eggs: one whole egg and two egg yolks
- vodka or gin (optional):
Adding (low carb) booze like gin or vodka will improve the consictency of the ice cream.
Booze that’s high in alcohol content has a very low freezing point and adding even very small amounts will lower the freezing point for your ice cream as well.Don’t worry if you think that it will kick you out of ketosis – like I already mentioned, you only need about 2-3 tsp for the whole recipe.
This amount is so miniscule that it most certainly won’t affect your state of ketosis whatsoever.
