Sugar-Free Sorbet

I recently was asked why I allow desserts and sweets on a ketogenic diet and I responded by stating that I have been able to stick to the ketogenic lifestyle for almost 20 years now and that is because I have found ways to celebrate holidays, birthdays, special occasions and simply enjoy food that I am bombarded with every single day, just in a little different way.

I grew up overweight and loving food, I will always love food. I do not want to eat boring food. I have ice cream just about daily and still am able to keep my weight off. If I didn’t allow things like this sugar-free Sorbet, I most likely would cheat because I would feel deprived, but since I do allow keto treats, this doesn’t feel like a “diet” to me. It is a lifestyle.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups carbonated water (I used from our Soda Streamer) or unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 tablespoon Everly drink mix (any flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt (keeps it soft)

Instructions:

  1. Place all the ingredients into the food processor and blend the mixture until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking.
  2. Place the mixture in an ice cream maker and churn according to instructions.
  3. Once it is done churning, place it into the freezer for at least another hour.
  4. Transfer the sorbet to the fridge for 20 minutes before serving.
