Keto Chow 1.5… ice cream?

This entry is part 129 of 176 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

The overwhelming consensus of Keto Chow 1.5 is

tastes like melted ice cream

I agree and decided to see what would happen if I tried making it back into ice cream. So I mixed up 6 meals worth of Cookies&Cream and put it into (one of) my ice cream makers. One of my daughters did a science experiment on salt/ice ratios for ice cream 2 years ago so I have the technique down solid (30+ rounds of ice cream will do that).

So, I think that Keto Chow has too much water in it to make ice cream. It would be fine for shaved ice or something but it turned out more like Ice Milk than Ice Cream. I put it into pint mason jars and into the freezer, once frozen you could easily see the clear ice. I later softened it and had my awesome wife try it out. She likes how it’s cold but has been letting it melt and drinking it – there are easier ways to make cold Keto Chow =)

    Seems like the answer is to make a shake out of it instead then.

    Have you tried using coconut oil instead of MCT? One of my favorite desserts is mixing whipping cream with coconut oil and cocoa powder, and whip it up. I used MCT once, and it just won’t whip. Somehow whatever makes MCT oil not solidify at low temperatures also seems to prevent it from being whipped. Maybe this is what’s happening to your ice cream.

      Nope, haven’t tried that.
