Vanilla Ice Cream


Of all of the products I’ve tried in terms of sweet from LCFood Corp, I was really excited to share this one, because as far as sweets go, this is definitely our favorite as a family. Just look at this lusciousness. It’s OK. I’ll wait.


What’s even better than it’s ginormous deliciousness? It’s simplicity. While many mixes require an ice cream machine, for this mix, all you’ll need is a big mixing bowl, a spoon, and a little bit of time.

Bowl me Over Vanilla Ice Cream

1 3/4 C ice water
9 ounce package of LC-Ice Cream
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
1 -3/4 Cups heavy white cream
Add ins (optional)

In a mixer, blend all ingredients. Pour into bowl. Freeze. Every 2-4 hours, stir ice cream mixture, repeating the process for 8 hours. In the last two hours, go ahead and add whatever flavors you’d like to add. I used mixed berries.

Keep cold and covered in freezer. To serve, allow mixture to rest on the counter to soften slightly.

Nutritional information: 3 net carbs per 1/2 cup servings.

Bam! You can use this to make you own low carb Blizzards with sugar free candies, your own milkshakes, you name it! And all without the fuss of dealing with an ice cream maker or a food processor.

So go ahead. Mix it up. Stir it up. No matter how you fix it up, your family will never look at diet ice cream the same way again.

  1. I love Breyer's Carb Smart Ice Cream, it tastes just like regular: 1/2 cup = 13g total (4g fiber, 5g sugar alcohol, 4g sugar. I am T2 diabetic and use 1/4 cup in a protein smoothie all the time.

  2. please please please keep the reviews coming!!! i have no problem spending the money but it helps to know i'm not wasting it on something nasty. its been so long since i've had ice cream that wasn't protein powder tasting. yuuuuuck. thanks!!!

    Hey, Duzzi! Thanks for the heads up! You rock!

    Meli– Thanks for the kudos. Sometimes I feel I write a ton of reviews, but it's also a blessing to be able to test these things and let you know what I think!

  4. Tried the website that sells the ice cream but could get no info. I clicked on several items and it brought me to blank pdf screens.

  5. Is this as easy at it sounds? Low carb website that sells the ice cream mix has very complex directions with ice cube trays, masher, etc. They also use less cream. Is yours any softer?
