Yep.  This is finally real life.  

I have been trying for SO LONG to make a high-protein ice cream and/or frozen yogurt to satisfy my never-ending craving for the stuff without going into sugary overload.  Sure, I'll indulge in a high(ish)-quality store-bought ice cream every now and again.  It's my weakness. But I have an ice cream maker of my own (that DOESN'T need rock salt, mind you!) that I like to use.  I have a bomb Maple Vanilla recipe for it already, which doesn't use processed sugar.  But sugar is sugar is sugar.

yada yada yada.

Since discovering I can handle dairy, I've become a regular yogurt eater again.  So I apologize if you cannot have it, but this stuff uses high-quality organic Greek yogurt as part of the base.  But man, is it a game-changer for the consistency!

All of this is basically to say that my Maple Vanilla base is great on its own or as a base to add other chunks of stuff into it, but I wanted a version that had a different macronutrient profile.  Because I'm into that kind of thing.  The result?

Yeah, I thought you'd like a visual.  Now stop drooling and go make this for yourself!

Keto Froyo

Prep time: 5 minutes   Freeze time: 20 - 30 minutes   Total time: ~35 minutes

Yield: 1 pint



  1. Pour all ingredients into a sturdy mixing bowl.
  2. Use an electric hand mixer to whip them all together.  It will get foamy at the top and the consistency will be even after about a minute; this means it's done.
  3. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker, according to machine's instructions.  Run the maker until a solid, hard ice cream-like consistency occurs.  The time for this varies based on your maker.  Mine takes about 20 minutes.

1 1/3 cup full-fat organic Greek yogurt

1 cup almond milk

1 pastured egg yolk

1 scoop Vital Proteins Vanilla Coconut Water Collagen Peptides

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Liquid stevia or xylitol, to taste*

*omitting this will leave a more "standard" froyo flavor.  Adding this will bring out the vanilla more for a sweeter version.

And then devour, of course. :)
