The taste of this ice cream is smooth, creamy and a little like a rich, frozen chocolate mousse.
The use of protein powder is great because it allows the cream to thicken but not solidify. As a result, the ice cream will be creamy and set, but not hard and solid.
Keto Mason Jar Ice Cream
Since this recipe is made using low carb ingredients and contains a large percentage of fats, it is classified as keto.
The macronutrient ratios for this mason jar ice cream recipe are as follows:
If you prefer the protein to be a little higher in ratio, you could try adding a little more protein shake to the mix in place of some of the cream.
Mason Jar Ice Cream Flavors
The brand, Atkins, has a whole range of other protein shake flavors, including iced coffee and chocolate.
If you would like to keep your ice cream plain and add your own flavor extracts, I would suggest using vanilla protein shake powder and adding the following unsweetened extracts:
2 drops banana extract (for banana flavored keto ice cream)
1 drop peppermint extract (for peppermint flavor)
1 drop rum extract (for rum and raisin type flavor)
Mason Jar Ice Cream with Condensed Milk
You could use a touch of my keto condensed milk recipe found here for some additional sweetness, but since there is plenty of sweetness from the protein shake, you are probably okay to just use this recipe as written.
