Blue Moon Ice Cream
EXITING NEWS! I started a CLOSED Facebook group called KETO. This way you can ask keto questions or post recipes of mine that you made without your Facebook friends seeing your post. Click HERE to join!
When I was a little girl I adored going to our little town of Medford Wisconsin and enjoying the 4th of July events along a cute river. Every year I would get a huge cone filled with Blue Moon Ice Cream. The Fourth of July was the only time I could get Blue Moon Ice Cream so on that day I savored every bite!
I had no idea what was in the delicious flavor of Blue Moon Ice Cream. It may have been the bright blue color that attracted me to the flavor, as well as the fact that my mom thought the flavor was disturbing and told me not to order it (even at a young age I liked to do the opposite of the “norm.”)
As I tested and tried this Blue Moon flavor of ice cream I discovered it was really quite easy! One thing that people complain about with low carb ice cream or Keto ice cream is that it hardens like a rock. I have a few tips to stop Keto ice cream getting too hard:
1. Add a pinch of salt: salt helps keep the ice cream salt. Salt also should be added to desserts! Click HERE to read why.
2. Use less Swerve (or erythritol): erythritol doesn’t melt and instead it crystallizes which causes low carb ice cream to get hard. Plus when you blend sweeteners you get a better flavor profile. What I always do is use less Swerve and I use a few teaspoons stevia glycerite which is a non-bitter stevia which is a thick honey-like sweetener. Click HERE to find stevia glycerite.
I also add a third natural sweetener called Monk Fruit extract or lo han go. Make sure it is an extract because actual monk fruit powder will have a lot of carbs. Click HERE to find Monk Fruit Extract.
Do NOT add alcohol. Some food bloggers recommend a tablespoon or two of vodka which may help keep low carb ice cream soft but if you are like me you will gain weight and most likely be kicked out of ketosis. On my trip to Italy, we discussed food a lot! Lani, a lovely woman on our trip told me she added little vodka to her ice cream to keep it soft and she was out of ketosis for 3 days! Not worth it!
With those tips, I highly suggest you make this delicious Blue Moon Ice Cream AND please post your lovely photos on my Facebook page Keto Adapted OR post on Instagram and tag me @mariaemmerich . Happy Fourth of July! 🇺🇸

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
“Hi Maria! I wanted to share; Because of the transformation Keto made for my husband and me, so many of my friends on Facebook keep sending me messages wanting to know about it. I am posting Maria’s book The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse for all to see.
Our bodies and well being can be an advertisement board! Everyone needs to know the truth about food and health! I had started off Paleo in beginning then switched Keto. Wow! Instant change for the better. People are amazed that we are in our 70’s and so healthy and active. Thank you Maria and Craig! My biggest size was size 18. I am now in size 4. I wasn’t that small as a child. If I did it anyone can! It’s the easiest journey I ever took! ” – Lillian
