The best sugar free chocolate ice cream recipe ever!!!!!

The mouth watering sugar free / fructose free choc ice cream with mint chop chips.

I have been experimenting with different sugar free ice cream recipes over the last week or so. I’m finally pleased to say I have mastered it! The best part is that, the recipe is for the base and you can add what ever flavours you like. So its really flexible and you can get wacky and wild with your ingredients!

OK so here it goes….

What you’ll need

1tsp gelatine
2 1/4 cup cold milk

 (use skim milk if you care about fat)
1 cup powdered  milk

 (again use skim if concerned about fat)
3 whole eggs (or 4 egg whites if you care about the fat factor)
Half cup dextrose (or how ever sweet you like it)
1/8 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract concentrated (make sure it has no fructose or sugar in it) ( or 2 tsp if not concentrated)

How to make it

Sprinkle gelatine over milk in a small saucepan and allow gelatin to soften for a few minutes. Stir mixture over low heat until gelatin completely dissolves. Remove from heat and place saucepan in another bowl of cold or ice water to cool to room temperature. Whisk remaining ingredients in kitchen aid until well combined. Add milk-gelatin mixture and mix for a few more seconds. Chill in refrigerator until cool (I’ve found for best results chill for 3 hours+, its not necessary but does improve texture a bit, depends how quickly you want to eat). Pour into ice cream maker and churn for about 20-30mins.


At about 5 mins before the churn has finished, you can add your other flavours to mix in. Its like coldrock without the fructose! 

Some suggestions:

  • Fresh blueberries
  • Finely chopped strawberries
  • Pure cocoa
  • Sugar free mint choc chips ( I smashed down a sugar free chocolate bar in a mortar and pestle to get this, they also have other flavours like orange choc or even sugar free caramel)
  • Mashed banana
  • Ground almonds or hazelnuts

Put in freezer to store.

Makes about 1 litre

NOTE: because there is no table sugar added this can alter the consistency. When eating its recommended to take out of freezer about 10 mins before eating so it can soften up. It is a bit of trial and error. 

Heres some pics to help you when shopping for fructose free ingredients….

Dextrose/Glucose which can be found at places like GNC live well or supplement stores.

Sugar free chocolate. This is found in health food isle at Coles or Safeway. It does contain stevia so treat it as a sometimes food.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I made a chocolate choc-chip version last night. Not strictly FF as I used 2 rows of chopped up 70% cocoa chocolate for the chips to appease my yet to be converted 14 year old. “My” batch will be vanilla with strawberries and blueberries. I am thinking of replacing some of the milk with cream to make it a little thicker. My daughter wants mint choc chip. Any suggestions as to when to add the peppermint essence? At the beginning in the milk mixture or at the last minute with the chips?

    • Hey cathy. It’s so great you gave this a go and loved it!!

      My advice would be to add that essence at the beginning. Only so you can get t he flavour consistency. I think if you did it at the end with the choc chips it would be patchy with the flavour spread as its already thickened.

      P.s great idea!! I’m going to use the same next time.

      Thanks for the question, hope that was helpful. Xox
