Can you eat ice cream on keto?
Keto dieting requires significantly reducing your carbohydrate intake while simultaneously eating the majority of your calories from fat and a decent amount of calories from protein. Regular ice cream is PACKED with sugar and therefore extremely high in carb it would not be a standard food to eat on keto (unless you’re having yourself a little cheat day!) However, luckily, there are ways to enjoy ice cream that is sugar free and low carb! While standard ice cream is made with granulated sugar, keto ice cream is made with low- or no-calorie, low-carb sweeteners, like stevia, monk fruit, and sugar alcohols, such as erythritol and/or xylitol. You can find some at the grocery store or make your own!
