I used to love chocolate , vanilla , coffee ice cream since childhood. Any moment I felt like celebrating , ice-cream was one of my favorite go to. An year back when I decided to switch to low carb/Keto diet for keeping healthy lifestyle , I started missing all the desserts which I used to enjoy a lot!!!
So I came up with this recipe which helped me in maintaining state of ketosis. If you are wondering what is KETO diet , you check here. It was a long journey to adjust in this new way of lifestyle change, I have created a blog for that also, it describes how you can start a keto diet as a beginner . Many people have few misconceptions about themselves that they cannot loose weight irrespective of anything because they have Obesity as a genetic factor in their family. So just to clarify your doubt this is not true, you can check complete details here .
Long Sweet History :
- According to IDFA, Ice cream’s origins reach back as far as the second century B.C., although no specific date of origin nor inventor has been indisputably credited with its discovery.
- Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavored with honey and nectar.
- Biblical references also show that King Solomon was fond of iced drinks during harvesting.
- During the Roman Empire, Nero Claudius Caesar (A.D. 54-86) frequently sent runners into the mountains for snow, which was then flavored with fruits and juices.
With time, ice cream evolved and eventually it’s ingredients. It has changed in such a rapid way that today most of the ice-creams are made with processed food like condensed milk / sugar /artificial flavours which has drastically impacted today’s health. And the fun fact is that most of the people are not aware of such changes in their day to day life .
BUT with few Keto friendly ingredients we can actually make a delicious healthy ice cream , with no preservatives!!!! So here is my take on the classic.
