This Keto Mason Jar chocolate ice cream has become my new obsession! It’s quick, easy to make and only 3 net carbs per serving!
Sure, there are other ice cream brands like Halo and Rebel that are just as delicious but at $4-$6 a pint that tends to get expensive. This recipe is fairly inexpensive to make and tastes just like Wendy’s chocolate frosty. I like to triple the batch and pour it into portion cups and freeze so I can have it on hand for the whole week.
To portion out the keto ice cream, I used these Snapwear portion cups. They are sturdy and have a suction cup lid that snaps on to keep it secured when freezing. There are also lots of other varieties of freezer portion cups to choose from if you want something different.
For this recipe I used Lakanto Monkfruit Classic sweetener, which is keto friendly. If you’re wanting to try the Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener or any other Lakanto products visit them here and enter the code KETO at checkout for a discount.
Can I freeze mason jars with metal lids?
Yes, you can. Some people say that the mason jars with the metal lids tend to hold up just fine in the freezer and a great way to make ice cream in but others have had them break. Others have said that the glass ones may break, you can use plastic mason jars instead. For this recipe I used a large plastic mason jar container versus a glass one.

Sounds great Alison! Can you suggest any other sweetener that might work the same?
AlisonFebruary 19, 2020 at 4:01 pm
You can use a granular erythritol. Or if you don’t want it keto friendly you can use regular sugar.
LarryJune 23, 2022 at 11:01 pm
Granulated Stevia would would work just fine🤔

Alison. I just made this with exact ingredients you have listed. I cup HWC is 789 calories and unsweetened cocoa is 40 so for 2 servings it would be around 415 calories per 1 serving and you have 222 per 1 serving. I am new to Keto so where did I go wrong.
AlisonFebruary 21, 2020 at 11:28 pm
The nutritional value is per serving and can vary per individual depending on which brand you buy. You can scan the ingredients you are using in the carb manager app to get the right information for the products you used.

Jenny, you did not go wrong! You are correct and the listed cal/portion is half actual.

this ice cream is not scoopable is it ? it becomes rock hard and you have yo thaw it out to eat?
RitaMarch 19, 2021 at 8:01 pm
We just made this for the first time and can’t believe how rock hard it is. We thought it was really good, but the hardness was disappointing.
AlisonMarch 27, 2021 at 1:19 am
You may need to shorten the freeze time a bit or you can thaw it out for about 20 minutes before consuming.
Kathy RickardsJune 6, 2020 at 9:45 am
1/2 c whipping cream has 400 cals and 43 gm fat!! Am just a little worried about this much in one serving. As a treat even…..
johJanuary 22, 2021 at 6:38 pm
its cold and creamy but does not taste like a frosty
Brandy BerryMarch 30, 2021 at 9:17 pm
My heavy cream says 1 carb per 1tbsp. So that would be A WHOLE lot of carbs.
AlisonMarch 30, 2021 at 9:41 pm
I would look for a different brand that has less carbs. I use my local store’s brand. It’s less carbs.
Jenn P.July 5, 2021 at 7:32 pm
Although this may not be keto friendly, I add 1 tbsp of vodka ( not for the alcohol ), this prevents the ice-cream from freezing hard. I would like to note that I also make a triple batch for the whole family and the alcohol is simply a preventative ingredient. For those that enjoy alcohol, feel free to use a 4tbsp amount if your favorite choice Rum, vodka, or liquor.
Hope this helps
