Primal Keto Ice Cream

Primal aviaryThis is the keto ice cream you’ve been waiting for. It’s creamy, rich and luscious, and made with just 5 ingredients. Primal keto ice cream is pure, unadulterated, guilt-free bliss. There’s no dairy, no added sugar or artificial sweeteners, and no additives.

It’s almost impossible to make rich and creamy dairy-free ice cream without dumping sugar or additives into it. Here’s the secret: High-fat coconut milk and macadamia butter, pure vanilla extract, and PRIMAL KITCHEN® Collagen Fuel. This combination is all you need to make delicious dairy-free, high-fat, low-carb, low sugar, keto ice cream.

High-fat, low-carb foods are critical to the ketogenic diet, and this ice cream delivers on both fronts. Plus, you get collagen protein from the PRIMAL KITCHEN® Collagen Fuel. Even so, a daily bowl of Primal keto ice cream probably isn’t the best idea. It’s still dessert, after all. But when you need a treat, this ice cream is where it’s at. Primal keto ice cream is just sweet enough to gratify a sweet tooth, and the rich, full-fat flavor is truly satisfying, even in small servings.

The two recipes below make both vanilla and chocolate Primal keto ice cream. They’re delicious separately, or swirled together.

Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes, plus time to churn in the ice cream maker

Servings: 4 to 6

Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel Keto Ice Cream


  • 1 13.5 ounce can full-fat coconut milk (400 ml)
  • 1 scoop PRIMAL KITCHEN® Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel (16.5 g)
  • ¼ cup macadamia nut butter* (60 ml)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (without propylene glycol) (10 ml)
  • pinch of salt

Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel Keto Ice Cream


  • 1 13.5 ounce can full-fat coconut milk (400 ml)
  • 1 scoop PRIMAL KITCHEN® Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel (16.5 g)
  • ¼ cup macadamia butter* (60 ml)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (without propylene glycol) (10 ml)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (45 ml)
  • pinch of salt



Recipe Note:
Like all low sugar, additive-free, dairy-free ice creams, this one has the creamiest and fluffiest texture straight out of the ice cream maker. Once it’s frozen, the ice cream will harden. Before eating, let it sit out for 10-20 minutes to soften. The ice cream will return to a creamy texture, but won’t be as airy and fluffy. Running it briefly through a food processor, however, will restore the original consistency.
*To make macadamia butter, blend 1 cup raw, unsalted macadamia nuts in the food processor for 3 to 5 minutes until very smooth.

To make the ice cream, whisk coconut milk, PRIMAL KITCHEN® Collagen Fuel, macadamia butter, vanilla, and salt together until smooth. If making chocolate ice cream, whisk in cocoa powder.

Follow ice cream maker instructions for churning. Pour the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker and churn until desired consistency is reached.

Summer Break Begins

Mazen and I are off to a great start for our summer break! With all the traveling I just did, I was thrilled to wake up and have no where to be. Of course I do still have plenty of work to do, but I am managing that as efficiently as I can in pockets of time! These past few weeks have been intense, and I spent a lot of emotional energy on two rotten things that happened to me work-wise. So I was craving a few days to spend with Mazen and remind myself all I have to be thankful for.

The first day of summer, Mazen slept until 8:30!! (He was still a little on NOLA time…) He gave me the world’s biggest smile when I climbed into his bed for snuggling!

He got up, put on his bathing suit, and went to the fridge for a seltzer water. Sounds like summer!

He has really become a swimmer these past few weeks. Look at those muscles!

Mazen and our neighbor also both mastered the two wheeler last month. They were finally ready to leave the driveway, and I took them on a ride on the greenway while I jogged next to them. All went well!

Another morning they pulled Mazen’s teepee outside and made a fort.

I had to intercept when M took his bedroom pillows out in the dirt and gave him some outdoor ones in exchange.

We went to Kohr Bros for ice cream!

And we’ve been singing the Moana song “It’s so shiiiiiny”

One afternoon we met some friends at the Northside Library for Lego Mania.

And did a little summer spelling. Gotta stay sharp!

Poor Gussie was lured into the teepee with a treat and then Mazen got mad when he wouldn’t stay inside.

“Mommy, swaddle me like a baby!”

Happy Summer!
