Best sugar free ice cream EVER!!

We used our normal sugar free vanilla ice cream recipe (which is like the best sugar free ice cream recipe in the world!) and then added…wait for it…



OK. Seriously… My dad who always only likes vanilla ice cream (with a passion), said this was EVEN BETTER than vanilla. Say whaaat?! And my mom said it was the best ice cream she’d ever tasted…OK, enough bragging, haha, let’s get to the recipe! 😉

We used our normal sugar free vanilla ice cream recipe (which is like the best sugar free ice cream recipe in the world!) and then added…wait for it…cardamom and licorice powder!! If you don’t like licorice at all you can skip it since cardamom ice cream is heavenly by itself, but the combination of vanilla, cardamom, and licorice in this ice cream was BEYOND AMAZING, so I dare you to try it!

We always sweeten our ice cream with xylitol and real undiluted stevia extract. You can sweeten only with xylitol if you’d like, but we choose the combo of both xylitol and stevia extract because they work together to create a perfect sweetness, without any sugar! I’ve provided you with both options in the recipe.

(Disclaimer about measurements: If you’re in the States where metric measurements are not common, then use google to convert the measurements for you. That’s what I always have to do when I use American recipes. A tip is to buy a set of measuring cups that also show ml.)

3 egg yolks
300 ml cream
200 ml milk
50 ml xylitol and a pinch of stevia extract
OR 75 ml of xylitol
½ tsp Bourbon vanilla powder (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp licorice root powder

How to:
1. Pour milk, xylitol (or xylitol & stevia extract), egg yolks, cardamom, licorice, and vanilla into a pot. Whisk while heating up the mixture for approx 5 min on medium temperature. The mixture should thicken like a curd but is not allowed to come to a boil!

2. Take the pot away from the heat and put in a cold water bath to cool. Stir occasionally so the mixture doesn’t start to clump.

3. Pour the heavy cream into the cooled mixture and stir.

4. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the instructions for the specific ice cream machine you have.

5. Put the ice cream into a bowl and either serve right away or store in freezer for a few hours before serving. If the ice cream has been in the freezer over night it needs to sit for about 10-15 min in room temperature before serving.

Enjoy!! 🙂

The Dark Chocolate Diet

The fun not-a-diet that focuses on what you get to enjoy, sets you free from sugar and teaches you to control your blood sugar levels.



When I started as a nutritional counselor I had a 100% success rate with my weight loss clients. I thought I had figured it all out… If I could keep your blood sugar stable until the end of the day, you win – as in lose the weight, beat the cravings, stop the snacking – win.

In part that’s still the program I walk my clients through, but now I know that it’s more about you than the method.

You have your own life, with your own history, your own struggles, and your own body. Very few things are ever simple and when things don’t work like they are “supposed to,” then somehow the blame seems to land on you. Let me be very clear about this – you are not the problem.

I designed the Dark Chocolate Diet to be everything that dieting isn’t.

The Dark Chocolate Diet focuses more on what to eat rather than what not to eat.

When I first took charge of my own health, sugar-free dark chocolate was one of the tools I used to do so without falling into the same traps I did in the past – without failing, again. I took joy in what I was moving towards rather than what I was walking away from.

When I learned to focus on eating the right things for breakfast, I realized I didn’t have to struggle so much with lunch, dinner, or anything after that.

When I began focusing on what I get to eat rather than on limitations, my journey towards a lifestyle of health became fun.

The Dark Chocolate Diet is a program focused on fun, on joy, on hope. It’s a lifestyle with the right tools to keep you from failure.

There’s a lot that’s special about the Dark Chocolate Diet, but here’s what matters. You.

If you are ready to end the sugar cravings, be done with the snacking, get out of the cycles of trying and failing again, then I want to invite you to sign up to the Dark Chocolate Diet community.

I’ll see you there!
