Keto Soft Serve Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

OMGosh, guys!!!  This recipe is going to knock your socks off!  Not only does this keto soft serve ice cream recipe taste creamy and delicious but the whole family will be entertained by the dry ice reaction when you make it!  What a great thing to teach the kids during the summer.

If you are not familiar with dry ice, there are a few things you need to know ahead of time.  I purchased dry ice at my local HEB.  It’s towards the front of the store in a special freezer.  The employees at HEB are super helpful and willing to get the dry ice for you.  They have safety gloves right next to the freezer and they have paper bags to put the dry ice in when you pick your block.  Easy, peasy.

You want to make absolutely sure you don’t touch the dry ice with your bare hands.  You do need to wear gloves or else you could get a burn.  Very important!  Do not let the kids near the dry ice.  What a great lesson for them.

I took the dry ice home and laid it out on a towel on the counter.  I used a heavy meat tenderizer mallet to break off a small corner of the dry ice block.  While wearing gloves (the only gloves I could find at the moment where my husbands motorcycle gloves) I took the small piece of dry ice and put it inside a large ziplock freezer baggie.  I sealed the baggie with very little air trapped inside the bag.  I placed it on the of the towel and lightly pounded the dry ice with the smooth part of the mallet until it was fully crushed and turned to powder.  Make sure you crush it into very small pieces and a powder consistency.  You can see in the video exactly the size it needs to be.  The smaller the better.

This recipe doesn’t take long at all to whip up.  The hardest part is crushing the dry ice.  I promise you that you will make this recipe over and over again!  It’s pretty easy and fast to make too!  If dry ice was sold in powder form, it would be really simple!  Not sure if they sell it in that form but that would be nice.

Keto Soft Serve Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and pulse it until all the ingredients fully combine together.
  2. Start to prep the dry ice. Be very careful not to tough the dry ice with your bare hands because it could cause a burn to your skin. We placed the dry ice block in a towel using gloves on our hands. We used a meat tenderizer to break off a chunk of the dry ice. We placed that dry ice into a large ziplock baggie. We continued to use the meat tenderizer tool to crush the dry ice until it formed a powder (very fine) texture. You need 1 1/4 cups of crushed dry ice.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients into the bowl of your stand mixer and attach the paddle attachment.
  4. Turn the stand mixer on to level 2 power (slow) and slowly start to add the powdery dry ice mixture to the liquid mixture one tablespoon at a time.
  5. Once you’ve added all of the dry ice, turn off the mixer and use a rubber spatula to scrap down the sides of the bowl and mix up the bottom just in case any of the ice cream got stuck at the bottom of the mixing bowl.
  6. Continue mixing the ice cream on a speed of 2 or 3 until it’s thick and creamy!

You can serve this keto soft serve chocolate ice cream immediately or you can store it in a freezer friendly airtight container for later use.
