Low Carb Mango Ice Cream with Lime Chili Pistachios

Mangoes and cream go together nicely, but mangoes and low carb, not so much. Fortunately, LorAnn Oils offers a mango ice cream flavoring that’s actually very authentic tasting. I looked up some popular flavor combinations for mangoes and found lime, chili, and pistachios all pair well. My experience making sugar-free spiced nuts allowed me to come up with a lime chili pistachio mix-in that works perfectly.

Low Carb Sweet Corn Buttermilk Ice Cream and more!

Sweet corn and low carb go together like oil and water. However, my recent procurement of sweet corn concentrate from Natures Flavors means that I can impart that wonderful essence without that starchy vegetable spiking my insulin. I decided to base my recipe on Salt & Straw’s Sweet Corn Buttermilk flavor. I liked the tanginess of the buttermilk so much that I decided to try two other buttermilk flavor combinations. Three low carb ice cream recipes for the price of one!
