A sugar free ice cream recipe is easy and delicious when you get creative. Why stick with plain old vanilla all the time?  Mix it up and keep life interesting with these creative flavours. You really can invent anything you like! Here I have Honey & Almond, Pistachio and a Cheesecake flavour. I think the cheesecake has to be my favourite, of course.

Easy homemade sugar free ice cream recipes

There really is no limit to your options. I've seen some crazy ice cream and sorbet varieties out there, especially on Masterchef. Wow! Cucumber ice cream, smoked tea, heaps of fruit flavours.... what will they dream up next? If you don't like to take a risk with your own sugar free ice cream recipe, then try one of mine below. If you have a favourite that I haven't tried why not tell us all? 

Honey Almond Sugar Free Ice Cream

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/4 cups dextrose
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond essence
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 50g flaked or slivered almonds, lightly toasted
  • 300mL thickened cream

Combine the milk and dextrose in a saucepan. Whisk in the egg yolks, almond flavouring and honey. Stir over medium heat until the mixture thickens slightly, but don't let it boil or you will curdle the eggs.

Chill in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.

Stir in the cream. Pour the mixture into your icecream churner and churn for about 20 minutes, or follow the instructions on your machine. When there are only a few minutes until it is finished, add in the flaked almonds.

The ice cream will be like soft-serve after churning. Spoon it into a container and freeze for 24 hours for a normal ice cream firmness.

This Cheesecake ice cream is fantastic with an Anzac Biscuit crumbled over the top. It makes it feel like a deconstructed cheesecake! It is also fantastic with berries.
