Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream – Low Carb Keto Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present
my low carbohydrate mint chocolate chip ice
cream. This recipe exceeded my
expectations with texture and taste, and
in my opinion, is better than any of the
varieties of low carbohydrate ice cream you can
buy. Also, with only two and a half net
carbohydrates per half pint serving, you can
satisfy your real ice cream craving
without any guilt. Now when it comes to
knowing a little bit about low carbohydrate ice
cream, my buddy Aaron over at A.D. Keto
has reviewed quite a few low carbohydrate ice cream
brands and renders his assessment based
upon four elements. Texture; taste; carbohydrate
count and the list of ingredients.
I think my mint chocolate chip ice cream
recipe hits the target on all four, so I
hope to be seeing this thumbnail in the
weeks to come. Let’s get started.
Begin by placing four egg yolks in a
mixing bowl. Add some vanilla extract;
some peppermint extract; about a quarter
cup of MCT oil; a quarter cup of clear
rum; and this little bit of rum will
actually help with two things. First,
it’ll be a natural bacteria preventative.
And second, it’ll lower the temperature
at which the ice cream will freeze so we
don’t wind up with an ice cream so hard
we can’t serve it. Finish with a powdered
sugar substitute equal to two cups of
regular sugar. The powdered substitute
works best to give us a creamier result.
Mix well with an electric mixer until
well combined. After cleaning the beaters,
in a separate bowl, whip four egg whites
until stiff peaks form.
Pour one and a half cups of heavy
whipping cream into a separate mixing
bowl and add a half, to one teaspoon of
green food coloring. With clean beaters,
whip until thick and fluffy.
Add the egg yolk mixture to the whipped
cream and with a spatula, gently fold and
mix until the mixture is fully combined.
Now add the egg whites to the cream and
gently mix again until the egg whites
are no longer visible. Our final
ingredient is my homemade roughly
chopped low carbohydrate chocolate chips. I’ll
have a link in the description below for
that recipe. Gently give a final mix
until the chocolate is evenly
distributed. Pour our ice cream mixture
into a container for freezing. You can
divide this up if you like for multiple
servings, or just put it in one container
like I did here. Cover and freeze for at
least 8 hours. Once it’s ready, grab an
ice cream scoop
and begin serving one of the best
low carbohydrate, ketogenic friendly, ice creams you’ll
ever try. There you have it folks! My mint
chocolate chip ice cream. A super simple
dessert recipe that’s short on work, but
long on flavor and texture. I hope you
enjoyed this video. If you did, please

something new every week. As always,
thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time!

    Glen, my jaw is on the FLOOR!!! Not only is this recipe getting a review at some point, but that thumbnail is a thing of beauty. I laughed for a good four minutes. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  3. Pascale Devalet Posted on August 2, 2018 at 11:13 am

    Do I have to use the mct oil. I don’t have access to it. Thank you.

  4. Renea Riffel Momma Bear Keto Posted on August 2, 2018 at 11:14 am

  7. Stuart Pierce Posted on August 2, 2018 at 12:44 pm

  8. mica weatherman Posted on August 2, 2018 at 1:05 pm

  9. Fury Smith Posted on August 2, 2018 at 1:57 pm

    I love your recipes but dammit, you never show total carbs (and fiber); not everyone follows net carbs!

  10. Keto Meals and Recipes Posted on August 2, 2018 at 2:01 pm

    I will add your ice cream to my collection. Thanks

  11. Bill Conley Posted on August 2, 2018 at 2:03 pm

    Would love to try this but can’t do the booze. Is it required? Substitutes?

  12. Jefrey Valencia Posted on August 2, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    Hi any other substitute for the clear rum?

  13. Nicole Carrico Posted on August 2, 2018 at 2:39 pm

    Awesome I can't wait to give this a try. Thanks so much for another awesome recipe.

  14. Eileen Vogel Posted on August 2, 2018 at 3:02 pm

    Oh YUM!!! Thank you so much!!!

  15. CJsKetoKitchen.com Posted on August 2, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    That looks incredible 🤤 Can’t wait to try it!!!!

  16. Judy Colson Posted on August 2, 2018 at 9:02 pm

    Looks yummy. Could you substitute no-flavor vodka for the rum and get the same results? My favorite flavor of ice cream which I would love to have a Keto-friendly recipe of is Baskin Robbin's Mocha Almond Fudge. It is stupendous. But very carby unfortunately. I love that you put MCT oil in this. Important for Keto-ers. What do you think of using this recipe in an ice cream maker? Thanks for the recipe to add to my collection.

  17. Sharon Roe Posted on August 2, 2018 at 9:38 pm

    Can I use vodka instead of rum ?

  18. Cheryle Peikert Posted on August 3, 2018 at 2:33 am

    Can’t wait to try it!!

  19. Mikey Land Posted on August 5, 2018 at 2:27 pm

    Hey Papa G! I made this last night. The flavor and sweetness were on point, I just had a question about the consistency and was wondering if I did something wrong. Mine came out a little "grainy" instead of creamy. I followed the recipe, I omitted MCT oil and just added 1/8 cup more rum like you suggested. It froze overnight in a glass sealed Pyrex. It almost has a freezerburnt type consistency if you know what I mean. Any thoughts?

  20. The Low Carb Canuck Posted on August 6, 2018 at 2:39 pm

    A perfect ice cream needed for this East Coast heatwave. Once again thank you Papa G!

  21. bonnie rush Posted on August 7, 2018 at 2:26 am

    Matcha tea powder could be used to color it!

  22. Ashton mariah Posted on August 11, 2018 at 4:02 am

    I used the same exact ingredients and it was super super gritty. Any ideas?

  23. vanessa reyes Posted on August 11, 2018 at 4:27 pm

    Mine got hard 😥… but is sooo good I dont care

  24. Marita Wallace Posted on August 28, 2018 at 11:32 pm

    Two questions! Can I substitute dark rum for the clear rum? Also, I have an ice cream machine, is it okay to use that instead of freezing it in a container?

  25. Marita Wallace Posted on August 28, 2018 at 11:33 pm

    Oh, yes! Is it okay to use the low carb commercial chocolate chips instead of making our own?

  26. puregoddessuniversity Posted on September 6, 2018 at 1:38 am

    Can you omit the vodka?

  27. Homeschool Mama of 11 Posted on September 14, 2018 at 4:17 pm

    Subbed just cause of this!!! Now off to look through the rest of your videos!

  28. Keto Cricket Posted on September 14, 2018 at 7:39 pm

    Will this work in an ice cream maker?

  29. Kevin Gant Posted on September 14, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    came here because of A.D. Keto. Great job and will make this weekend. Also, thanks to Morgan Freeman for the narration.

  30. Abby K Posted on September 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    I'm curious, why did you use egg whites?

  31. Foodie Turned Sleevie Posted on September 15, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    Looks amazing!

  32. Jen Tuesday Posted on September 23, 2018 at 10:18 pm

    can you sub coconut oil for the mct?

  33. Pretty Perry Posted on September 27, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Followed The Directions To A T And Though It Taste Okay The Texture Was Very Gritty 😢

  34. Mark Hatfield Posted on September 30, 2018 at 9:13 am

    Gross!! Sorry, not a good recipe.

  35. Sarah R. Trenchard Posted on October 23, 2018 at 10:57 am

    OMG! I love love love mint chocolate chip! I will sooooo be trying this recipe! Thanks so much! Keep up the great work!

  36. Idriss Pukka Posted on December 11, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    I have a question, instead of peppermint extract could you use butter rum flavoring oil and make butter rum ice cream? I think it would be 1 tsp of the flavoring oil, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions?

  37. Areya Black Posted on December 12, 2018 at 12:46 pm

    Could I add a tiny bit of juiced spinach for the green color instead of food coloring??

  38. Thomas Posted on December 19, 2018 at 3:25 am

    I tried to make from your recipe and the taste is really good. But I used granulated swerve and it cannot mix well and all sink to the bottom of the container. Can u recommend a way to dissolve it in the mixture? Thanks!

  39. Sandy Gilbert Posted on December 26, 2018 at 1:32 pm

    Papa G what can you substitute MCT oil for?

  40. idogtv Posted on February 8, 2019 at 2:57 am

    After going through a number of these videos, this video especially convinced me I should really get myself a hand mixer (at the moment I don't have any sort of mixer, because I'm a single 24 year old dude living in an apartment and have always done super basic keto food). This looks great.

  41. idogtv Posted on February 9, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    Dumb question, but is this recipe using large eggs? If I only have jumbo eggs on hand, should I cut it down to 3 jumbo egg yolks/whites, or does it not matter so much for this?

  42. UTR UTR Posted on March 4, 2019 at 12:00 am

    I just made this for the first time. This looks amazing! It's in the freezer and I can't wait to try it. Thanks as always PapaG

  43. Matt Brown Posted on March 30, 2019 at 3:25 am

    Dumb question but will the rum make me buzzed if I eat too much?

  44. Donna Sides Posted on April 6, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    Hey Papa G, made this last night, takes fabulous, but doesn't appear to be frozen. I did grind my sugar to "powder". Any suggestions?

  45. Anita T Posted on April 16, 2019 at 2:29 pm

    Papa, I used your basic recipe to make a wonderful creamsicle ice-cream using a package of sugar free Jello in the mix. I had been wishing for something like this for a long time time without having to use the ice cream machine. I think yours is a great recipe to tweak and make various flavors as it is easy, flavorful ice cream. Chocolate mint for me is about as much fun as getting a tooth pulled but your ice cream texture is amazing!

  46. Who’s NaeNae Posted on April 21, 2019 at 2:58 am

    Is it safe to eat raw eggs like that?

  47. MichaelMing Posted on May 2, 2019 at 4:27 am

    No cooking is needed for the 4 whole eggs?

  48. Aaron Bailey Posted on June 17, 2019 at 8:59 pm

    I guess all these egg truthers have never had the joy of eating cookie dough. Poor guys…
