Low-Carb Chocolate-Chip Ice Cream Bars
It’s almost impossible to find a healthy ice-cream in the store. They are packed with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, colours, flavourings, preservatives and generally a whole long list of ingredients you probably can’t pronounce. And it’s even more difficult if you want a dairy free ice-cream.

Why the no-churn method? Because so many people tell me they don’t want to buy an ice-cream maker.
Personally I love my ice-cream maker, and using it makes for a light and fluffy ice cream, but when you are wanting a healthy ice-cream bar, then the no-churn method is perfect.
The low-carb ice cream bar will be sturdy and solid. The creamy custard is luxurious, tasty and helps keep that sneaky sweet tooth from reappearing.
When you have a sweet craving and ice-cream is all you are hankering for, this is the perfect healthy low-carb sugar-free ice cream to always have on hand.
Make the quick and easy custard, then simply pour the sugar-free ice-cream into the baking tray.
Low-Carb Chocolate-Chip Ice Cream Bars – decorating
To make the healthy ice-cream bars look beautiful, sprinkle over some cacao nibs, raspberries and even some chopped macadamias would be incredible.
In fact, why not roll the sugar free ice cream bars in nuts for an authentic ice cream bar appearance?
Once the no churn ice cream has been frozen, remove from the baking tray for a few minutes to allow the plastic film to be removed easily from all sides.
Cut the low-carb chocolate-chip ice cream into bars. They could even be dipped or drizzled in chocolate at this point.
Once the bars have been cut, and possibly decorated (optional) then pop them into an airtight container, with non stick baking parchment between each layer, which avoids the low-carb chocolate-chip ice cream bars sticking to one another.
Store in the freezer and you have a ready supply when you want to reach fro something sweet, but avoid the carbs and other nasties.

Place the coconut cream and the egg yolks into a saucepan.

Once cool, stir through the raspberries and cacao nibs.
Pour into a silicon dish or metal baking dish that has been lined with plastic wrap (as shown above).
