Lately I’ve been craving ice cream, but I am avoiding added sugars. It’s summer and I NEED Ice Cream. I didn’t like many of the options at the store. They were sorely lacking in creaminess. That’s where these Frozen Chocolate Whips were born.
I wondered if I could just whip up some chocolate whipped cream and freeze it for a Easy Low Carb Ice Cream treat. I have to say that I think these are even better than I expected.
Frozen Chocolate Whips are so light and creamy! My Low Carb Ice Cream dreams have come true.
I think they are perfect when they sit out for a few minutes before biting in (if I can wait)! They become soft and yet they have that frozen/icy bite to them. So why didn’t I just try my hand at a traditional low carb ice cream recipe?
The short answer is that I wanted to have something that didn’t take a bunch of time or equipment. There is no churning, no scooping, and all you need to do is whip the cream! EASY!
Frozen Chocolate Whips Low Carb Ice Cream really hits the spot for all my ice cream cravings.
Best Tips for Making Frozen Chocolate Whips Low Carb Ice Cream:
- Whip the cream until it’s a thick consistency. Watch out for whipping too long which will cause the whipped cream to become butter!
- Use a silicone mat or parchment paper. I can’t stress this enough because you’ll want to be able to pull up the whipped ice cream easily!
- Wait a minute before eating if you can. Just like regular ice cream… Frozen Chocolate Whips get creamier if they are allowed to warm up just a bit. I think the whips are even better because if they completely thaw out… they keep their shape since they are whipped cream!
- Try different flavors. This recipe will work with many different flavors. I would add around 1 tsp. of any liquid flavoring for the best results. For example instead of the cocoa just add 1 tsp. of vanilla for a vanilla flavored version. I think strawberry or caramel would be great too.

FAQ about Frozen Chocolate Whips Low Carb Ice Cream
- How long will these last in the freezer? If these are stored in an air tight container they should last a couple of months. The biggest issue is freezer burn. I don’t think you’ll need to worry about these lasting that long, though! 🙂
- Can I make these dairy free? Yes! Just use your favorite dairy free whipped cream recipe and as long as the fat is comparable to this recipe they should hold up well. For example a coconut cream whipped cream would work really well.
- Can I use other sweeteners? Yes. Any sweetener should be fine and it’s what makes this recipe so unique compared to traditional ice cream. Ice cream relies on the sugars to keep it creamy and this recipe relies on the air inside the whipped cream to make it creamy. Using regular sugar would only make it even more stable, but it’s not necessary. The only issue would be with anything like corn syrup or other liquid sweeteners that might thin out the recipe too much. If you want to use a liquid sweetener just know that I have not tried it with a liquid before so it might not work as well. I did have someone suggest they used honey and that worked out okay for them.
- Are these Keto friendly? Yes they are. These would be about the equivalent of a fat bomb in the Keto world. Just make sure the vanilla extract that you are buying is sugar free. Sometimes they have added sugar. You can always omit the vanilla if you need to. It’s just there for added flavor.
- Can I make these with canned whipped cream? You sure can (that was an unintended pun LOL) with some caveats. I have been known to do this on occasion when I am not watching my carbs as heavily. The whipped cream in a can is not as thick so they need to be transferred to the freezer immediately! They also won’t keep their shape like the homemade version. This method will work in a pinch though.
- Are these good for the Trim Healthy Mama plan? Yes. This would be considered a DEEP S dessert.
- What is a piping bag? A piping bag is the plastic (or sometimes paper) bag that is used typically for icing cakes. They are triangle in shape and can be found at most craft stores. You can use a gallon zip lock bag in a pinch by cutting off the bottom corner of one side and using that hole to pipe through. You can also just dollop the whipped cream onto the parchment paper without piping it on too. The piping just adds a nice touch, but it’s not essential.
