This keto Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream is my absolute favorite strawberry ice cream recipe, and I’ll tell you why. The strawberries are macerated to extract more of that delicious fresh strawberry taste, and then you add sour cream to complement the sweet strawberries with a bit of creamy tang.

If you’ve ever had strawberries and sour cream together, you know this is a winning combo! Also, this ice cream can be made in an ice cream maker, but it has instructions for the no churn method, too.

Two Methods for Keto Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream

In making this keto strawberries and cream ice cream, I’ve included two different methods: ice cream maker and no churn.

While I will always prefer the ice cream maker method for it’s convenience and slow-churned creamy taste, I totally understand that not everyone has an ice cream machine.

Though, if you’d like to try it out and see what I’m talking about, this Cuisinart machine is my favorite ice cream maker. I’ve been using it for years!

Below, you’ll find step-by-step photos for both methods, and under that, you’ll find the simple recipe card.

Keto Strawberry Ice Cream in Ice Cream Maker

If you choose to make your keto strawberry ice cream in the ice cream maker, follow these instructions (or skip to the recipe card below if you prefer).

  1. Prepare the strawberries

    Add the strawberries, sweetener, and vanilla to a bowl. Stir till the sweetener is completely dissolved. strawberries, monkfruit sweetener, vanilla in bowl for ice cream maker

  2. Macerate the strawberries

    Allow to sit at room temperature, stirring from time to time. The juices will start to come out of the strawberries (this is called maceration and makes for some really yummy ice cream!). I wasn’t sure if maceration would be possible with a sugar free sweetener, but I’m pleased to say it is! Your macerated strawberries should look like the photo below. macerated strawberries for keto ice cream

  3. Into the blender it goes!

    Add strawberry mixture and the rest of the ingredients to a blender and process till mostly smooth. If you prefer bigger chunks, you can process the strawberries separately and just slightly, and then stir the strawberry mixture into the cream mixture. Refrigerate for about an hour.Stirring strawberries into cream mixture

  4. Freeze the keto strawberry ice cream and enjoy!

    Freeze the ice cream according to your ice cream maker’s instructions, and enjoy! I use this Cuisinart ice cream maker and LOVE it! I’ve had mine for about 13 years and it’s still going strong.
