I've tried the strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla and they are all great! Recipes courtesy of Bellaonline. I use xylitol, erythritol and stevia and it always turns out great.

Butter Pecan

3/4c heavy whipping cream
1/2c half-n-half
1/4c cold water
1 egg
3/4 Tbsp Splenda-sweetened maple syrup
1/4 cup Splenda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup pecans


Put all but the pecans into a saucepan and heat up. Grind up four halves of pecans to a fine powder and mix those in. That will give the ice cream a pecany base flavor. Chop up another 2 pecan halves medium-fine to give texture to the cream.

On medium high heat, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and chill for an hour or until cold. Now make the ice cream following your maker's instructions, and enjoy!

This is definitely one of our favorites, even though it requires a little ahead of time preparation.

************************************************** ************
Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Recipe

3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup half-and-half
3/8 cup Splenda
1/4 cup ice cold water
1/4 tsp vanilla dash salt
1 frozen CarboLite milk chocolate bar ... cut into small chunks

Mix all but the chocolate chunks and put it into your ice cream maker. Turn on and watch for about 20 minutes. Toss in the chips and it should be done in another 5 or 10 minutes.

Makes 2 servings
6g carbs per serving

************************************************** ******************************************

Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

Chocolate ice cream is a summertime favorite, and delicious year round. Here's a great low calorie, low carb version that is tasty. Note that this isn't *super rich* - it has a light chocolate flavor.

3/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup half-and-half
1/4 cup Splenda
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp Atkins chocolate syrup
dash salt

Mix all thoroughly and put it into your ice cream maker. Turn on and watch for about 25 minutes - it should slow to a halt when it's thick enough. You can easily double the recipe if you'd like.

This is a creamy chocolate ice cream with a gentle flavor. If you really need some more depth to your chocolate flavor, take one of the 0g chocolate bars you find in the supermarkets and shave it into fine slices. Mix that into the ice cream at this point. It won't really taste like "chips" - the shavings will be so small - but it will give your ice cream an added chocolate punch without any extra carbs.

Makes 2 servings
4g carbs per serving

************************************************** ******************
French Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

French Vanilla ice cream is even more vanilley than normal Vanilla ice cream, and is much richer and creamier. I actually like this recipe the best out of all the ice cream recipes we use! It does have to be prepared at least an hour in advance of actual ice cream machine time so plan ahead for this.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 cup ice cold water
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
dash salt

Mix all thoroughly. Cook in a saucepan over low heat. This won't thicken as much as a sugar-based custard will, but it will thicken so stir regularly. Cook 15-20 minutes until medium thick. Now put it in the fridge to cool down for at least an hour. Put the mix into your ice cream maker. Turn on and watch for about 25 minutes - it should slow to a halt when it's thick enough.

Makes 2 servings
3g carbs per serving

************************************************** **********
Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 cup ice cold water
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash salt
5 low carb peanut butter cups

Mix all but the peanut butter cups thoroughly and put it into your ice cream maker. Turn on and watch for about 25 minutes - it should start slowing to a halt when it's thick enough.

At this point chop up 3 of the cups into six pieces each and mix those in. Now really dice up the remaining 2 cups so that there is a good general mix of flavor and stir that in as well. Let it go around a few times to blend those in and serve.

Makes 2 servings
3g carbs per serving

************************************************** ******
Strawberry Ice Cream

1 1/2 cup whipping cream
1 cup half and half
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup strawberry juice/puree
7/8 cup Splenda

1/2 cup coarsely chopped strawberries

Place a handful of strawberries in a blender or food processor to create the strawberry juice/puree. Mix the first 5 ingredients and add to machine, add the coarse strawberries once the mix has started to firm up.

If the mix is not solidifying, add 1 tsp of water and mix it in well with a rubber spatula, make your own determination of how to safely do this with the type of ice cream maker you have.

Strawberries are 1.8g / 4oz serving, in case you use some for decoration or consumption on the side

Makes 4 servings
3.5g carbs per serving

************************************************** ********************
Vanilla Ice Cream

3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 cup ice cold water
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash salt

Mix all thoroughly and put it into your ice cream maker. Turn on and watch for about 25 minutes - it should slow to a halt when it's thick enough.

Makes 2 servings
3g carbs per serving

Do you have an ice cream maker? ;-)

Here is a search for "ice cream"...8 pages of references... ;-)

Low Carb Friends - Search Results

I suppose that by 'simple' recipe you may want a recipe without special ingredients, however, they really add to a more perfect, low carb ice cream (They are all available from Netrition.com ;-). Here is my favorite using a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker:

Basic Sugar Free Syrup Ice Cream Recipe:

2c Heavy Cream (13.2 carbs)
1c Liquid Stevia, DaVinci, Atkins, or Torani Sugar Free Syrup, choice of many flavors (0 carbs)
2c Sugar equivalent sweetener (1/2t liquid Splenda or Stevia is 0 carbs)
2T Vegetable Glycerine (0 carbs)
3T Lecithin Granules (1.5 carbs) [or 3 egg yolks for a custard mix]
1/4t Xanthan Gum (0 carbs)
1/8t Salt (0 carbs)

You may wish to add 1/3c pecans and 1/3c SF chocolate chips or 1 cup of fruit to your ice cream.

I mix all ingredients in a 4 cup measuring cup with a hand mixer, place in a covered plastic container (4 cup size), let age overnight in the refrigerator and then place in a 1.5qt Cuisinart Ice cream maker and freeze. Makes ~4 cups of ice cream that will be spoonable days later, right from the freezer...only 14.7 carbs... ;-)

Hope this helps...

LindaSue has many ice cream recipes that don't require an ice cream maker but use a food processor.
Heres one: Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes
There are recipes for bag ice cream too, made in, wait for it, a baggie or two. Haven't tried that method. Enjoy!

Glycerin is great for ice cream but remember that it is NOT 0 carb.
More like 12g per tbsp. Use it sparingly

Lisa, I'm with ya on the shaved ice! It's been a life saver for me. I bought 30 flavoring concentrates that I make with Splenda, so it's a new treat every day!

Just for the record... ;-) Vegetable Glycerine is a non-impact carbohydrate, treated in a manner similar to fiber...

From Netrition.com:

"Although glycerine is a carbohydrate, it has a different metabolic effect on the body. Unlike typical carbohydrates, glycerine reportedly has minimal impact on blood sugar levels."

Been away from here a few years (still lowcarbing) and
have the original very strong splenda ordered here for some
of us. Need to know what strength you are using now in
recipes to adjust my sweetener which I assume is no longer
available (but I have plenty to use). Time for ice cream.

This seems to be debated often...
Diabetes Update: Is Glycerin a Carbohydrate?
I'm actually not really sure though I just heard that is was really a carb.

Technically, the FDA has ruled Glycerine a carbohydrate based upon it's chemical structure...

From a low carb perspectived, we are interested in keeping those carbohydrates that affect blood sugar low...

Dr. Atkins coined the term 'non-impact carbohydrates' to include those carbohydrates that do not affect blood sugar such as fiber and glycerine...

Therefore, in my recipes, I exclude 'non-impact carbs from my 'low carb' carbohydrate count...

David Mendosa does say (in your reference about the fight between protein bar manufacturers and the FDA over technicalities regarding the use of the label carbohydrate) "But what is the glycemic index of glycerin? I'm not sure, so I haven't added it to my Glycemic Index Lists. But apparently the reason that glycerin is not listed as a carbohydrate by these manufacturers is that glycerin does not effect blood glucose or insulin levels, they say." which would appear to support Dr. Atkins contention that it is a non-impact carbohydrate with respect to a low carb diet.

I will continue to ignore non-impact carbs in my carb counts... ;-)

Hi Twokitty ;-)

The original strength Liquid Splenda (Sucralose) is available at Netrition.com as EZ-Sweetz. Sucralose powder used to make any strength you wish is also available now online by Google Search.

Twokitty, if you bought Trish's sucralose syrup, 1 t = 1 cup of sweetener. Also 1 t of Trish's sucralose=1/4 t Sweetzfree. Is Trish's the kind you bought?

24fan, thanks for the shout out!

I've been making the following for breakfast:

1/4 cup cream
2 fresh egg yolks
Sweetener, to taste (I use NuNaturals stevia)
1 tsp cocoa powder, or 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee granules
Few grains sea salt
Tiny pinch xanthan gum

Blend it up, pour it in an empty yogurt container, and freeze overnight. It's a low tech, yummy meal for the summer heat! I nuke it for 10-15 seconds in the microwave before consuming. It's perfectly melty that way!

missm,

My simplest and quickest summer treat is to mix 1/4t liquid Sucralose and 1/4t liquid Stevia into 1 cup heavy whipping cream, stir in frozen Blueberries until they just peek above the cream, let sit in the fridge (not the freezer ;-) for a few minutes and my Blueberry Special is ready to go...love it! ;-)

Sorry, must be a function of the Search option to last only temporarily... You may do as I did, click on Search v at the top of the page and in 'Search Forums' type in "ice cream" (without the quotation marks ;-) then click on GO. This should bring up past ice cream posts...

I just did the above and here is the 'current' thread...don't know how long it will last...

Measuring splenda

Yes, I believe it was Trish who ordered
the sucralose for us.
But my question is what is meant in these
recipes by 1/4 cup splenda, for instance.
Powder or liquid, and what strength?
Equivalent to 1/4 cup sugar?
I haven't kept up or used anything else in
a long time. Usually use DaVinci syrup for
ice cream but like to try new recipes.
Thanks

I imagine it's the bag o splenda when a recipe says 1/2 cup. Like the regular kind that comes in a big bag? I only use splenda quick packs or liquid now but if it says 1/2 cup splenda, yes, it's the same as 1/2 cup sugar. I use whatever it says on my directions to equal 1/2 cup sugar, Twokitty.

Hope I'm right

I have gotten xanthan gum, erythritol, and xylitol from a health food store. Or you can get it online at Netrition or Amazon.

splenda amounts

"I imagine it's the bag o splenda when a recipe says 1/2 cup. Like the regular kind that comes in a big bag? "

Thanks, makes sense.

Rather than making ice cream just for myself, I have
been using up my frozen berries (wild picked), mixing
with some half and half and a few drops of liquid splenda
in the small chopper. Like the old Vita-Mix instant ice
cream, refreshing and delicious. Sometimes use a pinch of
cinnamon or vanilla, depending on type of berries.
