Vanilla Ice Cream
It's Creamy! It's Rich! It's definitely a favorite! This is the ice cream that gave me the nickname "Ice Cream Becky"! Even Pearl and Serene said it was the best ice cream they ever had! That made my day. In June 2019, I got to meet the sisters, the authors of Trim Healthy Mama, and I took them some of my ice cream.

Servings: 11 5 oz servings
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup half & half
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup Gentle Sweet with Xylitol, will keep your ice cream scoopable from the freezer
- 2 tsp pure Mexican vanilla
- 1/8 tsp mineral salt
- 1 Tbsp vegetable glycerin
- 1/2 tsp THM gluccie
- FIRST Blend everything EXCEPT the gluccie, in the blender for 30 seconds. (I use a Vitamix)
- While blender is running on lowest setting add your gluccie. Mix for another 30 seconds.
- Turn your counter top ice cream maker on and pour mixture in to it.
- Spin 20-25 minutes in countertop ice cream maker.
Storage of your ice cream
- Portion into 5.5 oz portion cups for easy grab and go. Or store in a shallow container for easy thawing. But if you use THM Gentle Sweet with Xylitol it will stay soft in the freezer.
On the THM Plan this recipe is a THM S. I prefer the Cuisinart 2 Quart Ice Cream Maker. Click on any of the ingredients above in the recipe to shop with my affiliate links. To see all of my recommended items click HERE.

What is gluccie an what’s it for?.
It’s a thickener. If you click on the word gluccie in the recipe, you’ll see a full description on the thm website.
This ice cream is amazing!!
can this be made without cottage cheese
Yes, simply skip or you can sub with 3 egg yolks.
I loved this ice cream!!
This is the best homemade cream I’ve made yet! I love the flavor and how easy it is to make healthy ice cream!
Thanks, Kelly! I’m glad you love it!
My newly turned THMan asked me if I was sure it wasn’t his regular ice cream. WIN!! Terrific ice cream Becky…thank you for sharing it!
You’re welcome! That’s a huge win!!!
This is so yummy! I love it and my granddaughter requests it often.?
YAY! I’m so glad!!!
Can this be made without the gluccie? It upsets my stomach terribly.
Can this be made in a Ninja creami?
Can I sub gluccie? My stomach doesn’t tolerate. We also cannot use xylitol. Can I sub regular Gentle Sweet?
Yes some have used xanthun gum.
The reg gentle sweet has xylitol.
Yes, you can use any sweetener. It will be hard from the freezer. It will need to be portioned in serving size before freezing for an easy thaw.
This is wonderful! This is the first keto recipe for ice cream that isn’t hard as an ice cube out of the freezer and it taste amazing! I made it with Xanthan gum instead of the gluccie, since I don’t have that. Thank you for your recipe!
This is amazing!!! My whole family loves it. Thank you so much for sharing.
Is there another option vs xylitol to keep this scoopable? Can’t use xylitol with a dog in the house but really want to find a way to make a scoopable ice cream that is dog home friendly. Any recommendations?
Any substitutions to make this dairy free?
Hi Becky, could I just use xylitol or does it have to be Gentle Sweet?
Delicious!!!! I didn’t have the vegetable glycerin and it still came out great. I’m curious what that does to the ice cream? I will try it with that next time. Thank you:)
