Keto Ice Cream Sandwich

These particular Ice cream sandwiches were a staple in our house growing up and I definitely continued that into adult hood as well. I am so happy to have these back in my life. Soft and creamy ice cream treat for these hot summer days.

It all started with trying to make a thinner keto brownie to use as the bottom of a domed dessert for the bakery. Well needless to say I made it a little too thin but after it was in my cooler for awhile, I realized it looked like the the sandwich part of an ice cream sandwich. I had been meaning to test some of my recipes to make an ice cream sandwich shortly after I made my no churn ice cream recipe. I commented in that video that the ice cream tasted like the inside of an ice cream sandwich. So i cut it in half and filled it with my no churn ice cream, froze it and cut it into ice cream sandwiches and it tasted delicious. It was a soft cake like outside with creamy melt in your mouth ice cream in the center, just like I remember. Of course it has been over 2 1/2 years since I've eaten one, lol. But it definitely satisfied that craving for an ice cream sandwich.

For the sandwich part I used a half batch of my brownie recipe and baked it in the biggest sheet pan I had, which is a restaurant half pan. It measures 18 inches x 13 inches, if you don't have one that big you can use one as close to that size as possible or if you have 2- smaller sheet pans that would equal about the size of the one big one. Definitely want to spray and parchment to make assembly of the sandwiches easier. I use a combo of powdered monkfruit/erythritol and allulose for my sweetener. The allulose is less sweet and makes the baked goods softer but you can swap out the allulose for more powdered monkfruit/erythritol but I would use a little less. You can also use straight powdered erythritol like swerve.

I use a dutch chocolate whey protein isolate from Isopure for my brownies. This adds more chocolatey flavor and a little sweetness but no extra carbs. If you only have unflavored I would add some cocoa powder to the unflavored then measure out the grams or scoop you need for the recipe. Can use perfect keto or quest protein powders for sure, I just had a bad experience with one protein powder before so now I don't deviate from what I know works. Different protein powders may change your carb counts though.

The sweetness level of this keto ice cream is up to you. I made it with and without the added sweetener. Without it, it wasn't quite sweet enough for me, with 15 g it was a little too sweet. I might just add a few drops of liquid stevia next time or just 1 Tbs. powdered monkfruit.

This ice cream has a caramel undertone to it because the allulose caramelizes when you simmer it for awhile. This is nice because it gives it a little bit more flavor to what would essentially be just sweetened frozen whipped cream. Which also makes this ice cream a little higher in carbs, calories and fat compared to my churned versions of keto ice cream

My no churn ice cream is heavy cream and my allulose sweetened condensed milk. I tried 3 times to make sweetened condensed milk with erythritol and I couldn't get it to come out smooth and creamy like my allulose version. So pick up some allulose and make this deliciously creamy and smooth sweetened condensed milk. This is going to be a staple in my refrigerator for sure.

Keto Sweetened Condensed Milk (Big Batch)

2 Cup Heavy Cream

3/4 Cup Allulose

4 Tbs. Salted Butter

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract


  1. Place heavy cream and Allulose in a heavy bottom sauce pot and turn heat to medium and whisk until all the sweetener is dissolved

  2. Once mixture starts to simmer, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 20-30 minutes, depending on how low the heat is set, stirring frequently

  3. When the mixture has reduced to a little over 2 Cups of liquid (I test in a measuring cup first) and it has become a tan color, turn off heat, strain into heat proof vessel and add the butter and vanilla extract, stir to combine

  4. Chill for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator or overnight (stir every ten minutes if possible to distribute the butter, not crucial)

With using my big sheet pan I was able to get 10 ice cream sandwiches with pretty thin cake/brownie outsides and a decent amount of ice cream in the middle using a small batch of my no churn ice cream. I stored mine in a ziplock freezer bag. They will be fine like that for over a month. You can also wrap them individually in parchment paper to further protect them for longer and to fool your kids into believing they came from the grocery store.
