ChocZero Freeze Dried Marshmallow Bits elevate my ice cream game, capturing the essence of those beloved breakfast cereal marshmallows—minus the sugar rush. I'm steering clear of soggy substitutes for the cereal bits. Instead, I'll infuse my frozen treat with a burst of fruit-flavored cereal extract, ensuring a delightful flavor explosion in every spoonful!

Believe it or not, whipped cream can be low carb friendly. Even bariatric patients are typically allowed to gulp mouthfuls as a treat. The sugar content is low assuming the quantity consumed is also low. No-sugar-added whipped cream is available, but it's not palatable. All the ones I've seen use just one sweetener: sucralose. First rule of low carb desert conversions is to use more than one. I use erythitol and sucralose to create a light and fluffy treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth.
I splurged on a professional gourmet whipped cream maker. The best one is made by iSi and costs over $80 on Amazon. I usually like making a pint, but the price for the smaller model is not much different and I like the option to make a double batch. You can save money buying one made by a different company, but I didn't want poor results to be blamed on the equipment.

Ben and Jerry’s released a Festivus ice cream back in 2000. I never tried the original, but that didn’t stop me from making a low carb version based on the label. The warm, spicy notes of cinnamon and gingerbread and the sweet, rich flavor of caramel should be a good pairing. Brown sugar extract in the ice cream base adds a depth of flavor and a slight molasses-like sweetness.
