Keto chocolate ice cream + chocolate chips + chocolate cake = ka-ching!
Hear me out. Chocolate ice cream? Good. Chocolate cake? Great. Keto chocolate ice cream with choco chips and fat chunks of chocolate cake interspersed through it so you get chunky mouthfuls of chocolate deliciousness with every bite? OMG YES, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!
You know when you’re not on Keto, eating chocolate ice cream is already a guilt-inducing indulgence. I know it is for me, so adding cake to it just turns it into a sugar-, fat- and guilt-loaded calorie bomb. It’s the fastest way to nuke any diet you might even be considering. So imagine my absolute delight when I was able to turn out a Keto version of the dessert that tastes as good, if not better, than the real thing. And it’s perfectly diet-friendly!
A cheat’s recipe that doesn’t cheat on your diet!
Does it already sound like a lot of work? You know the advantage of being a lazy cook – have you met my three-ingredient and five-ingredient recipes? – is that you’re always looking for shortcuts to make life easy. The chocolate cake comes together in minutes because we’re making a mug cake. There’s no whipping and folding and multiple steps for the ice cream component – it’s just a one-bowl mix.
I was actually surprised by how not icy the ice-cream was – it was as deliciously creamy as any store-bought, factory-manufactured ice cream. That, of course, is partly because of the Jack Daniel’s whiskey added to the mix. Alcohol lowers the freezing point of ice cream so it stays creamier without the formation of those pesky ice crystals. If you don’t like the taste of whiskey, you can try a small splash of vodka, or just skip the alcohol altogether if you don’t mind a slightly icy final product. And if you feel like you’re not ready for the triple threat that is this ice cream, go try my coffee and hazelnut Keto ice cream. It’s not only a great starting point, but it’s also the perfect base recipe that you can customise as you like.
