This rich-buttery ice cream, like our easy keto yogurt recipe,  is way better than a store bought version. And with all of it’s delicious crunchiness from the pecans, this keto ice cream, along with our yummy chocolate ice cream, is all you will need this summer.

 

This ice cream is the perfect treat if you are on a keto diet as it has only 1g of net carbs. How cool is that?

The recipe is basically vanilla ice cream with added butter and chopped pecans. However, the butter has been gently  browned to emphasize its aroma which pairs perfectly with the pecans. If you want more intensive flavor, make sure you toast the pecan nuts.

This ice cream is also great as you can play with the flavors. The vanilla we used gives a nice sweet aftertaste, but if you are for a richer flavor, you can add some natural butter pecan flavoring.

 

Tips to make the best butter pecan ice cream

  1. For extra creamy ice cream add 2 small egg yolks, instead of one.
