Creamy Pina Colada Ice Cream

The tropics are calling with this no-churn Creamy Pina Colada Ice Cream!  Experience the flavors of coconut, pineapple, and fresh lime with this homemade ice cream recipe that is extra creamy, and dairy-free. When you think of ice cream, do you think of dairy-free?  Me either.  At first.  Then I made a few test protein ice cream recipes swapping canned coconut milk for dairy milk.  Now I’m a believer. I wanted to create a dairy-free ice cream recipe that was still creamy and smooth, and not icy.  There is a fine line when swapping out dairy milk and cream for non-dairy alternatives.

If you’re looking for a high-volume, protein-packed sweet treat… look no further than this Caramel Chocolate Protein Ice Cream! You get about four cups of “ice cream” for under 200 calories, and it’s low in carbs and fats so mostly protein.

10. Coconut Chocolate Protein Ice Cream Truffles

 Coconut Chocolate Protein Ice Cream Truffles

These high protein coconut milk ice cream truffles have a rich chocolate flavor with salty nuts on the outside. They are sweetened with monk fruit making them completely keto-friendly. A Coconut milk ice cream scoop is a great dairy-free alternative to traditional ice cream. What I have found is that homemade ice cream gets rock hard in the freezer. So, by breaking these down into bite-sized truffles I prevented a major issue with that. Here you have chocolate coconut milk ice cream truffles sweetened with monk fruit then rolled in macadamia nuts. You’re welcome to sub the nuts for a nut of choice. Crushed hazelnut will be an amazing choice. Toss in a little hazelnut extract in the keto ice cream as well.

I mixed everything together and scooped out the ice cream.
