Butter Pecan Ice Cream Bites

My keto butter pecan ice cream recipe is a total hit on my blog! The only complaint I get about it is that the ice cream is so delicious that many people overeat when they make it. I totally get it! I am a part of the “clean plate club” where you feel the need to eat the whole thing! That is why I practice portion control.

These Butter Pecan Ice Cream Bites are perfect for portion control! AND they are very easy to make on vacation! We are currently in Maui and we love to have a little dessert!

Author:
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
  • 1 cup cream cheese, softened (or Kite Hill brand if dairy free)
  • ¼ cup Swerve confectioners, or equivalent (to desired sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • BUTTER PECAN LAYER:
  • ½ cup butter
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup pecans, plus more for garnish
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup Swerve confectioners
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Place the heavy cream in a chilled bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Add in the softened cream cheese, natural sweetener and vanilla; combine until smooth.
  2. Place the mixture into a bendable chocolate mold (I used this muffin pan and placed it on a cookie sheet for stability). Place in freezer until frozen.
  3. To make the Butter Pecan layer, Place the butter in a medium saucepan over high heat. Use a whisk to stir occasionally. Heat until butter starts to froth. Start to whisk often while brown flecks appear. Continue to heat and whisk until the butter turns a dark golden brown (not black).
  4. Place the brown butter and the rest of the ingredients into a blender and puree until well combined. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking. Divide the mixture into each ice cream bottom. Garnish with additional pecans.
  5. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving. Store covered in the freezer for up to 1 month.

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY

“Hi, Maria! I’m so happy I met you! This is my first keto pregnancy after having 3 children and 1 miscarriage, and it is by faaaar the easiest. I started keto to manage my PCOS, but it’s not only enabled me to lose 90 lbs pre-pregnancy, but cured a fatty liver, normalized my A1C levels, cured my chronic hives, enabled me to get pregnant the very first month of trying (where it’s taken years for #2 and #3) and now virtually has eliminated my nausea throughout my entire pregnancy so far (whereas for my last pregnancy I was sick and on several meds the whole 9 months).

 I also do not have gestational diabetes this time around, where I have before. My increased energy is remarkable, and my other kids love your recipes so much, they often eat them up before I get much of them! 
Thank you so much for helping me to have such amazing health for my husband, kids, and the ministry work we do! It’s completely changed my lifestyle for the better!!️”

    These sound amazing! I think I’ll be making these when I’m done de-cluttering the kitchen! Also, the link to the muffin pan doesn’t seem to be working! But thank you for sharing this recipe, I love all things butter pecan! 🙂

  • Pebbles Worthington says:

    Hi. This (& MANY of your recipes) sounds so good! I tried to hit the print button on the actual recipe but it comes up as a blank page. I have had this problem several times on your blog so figured you might wish to know about it. Anyway, thank you for all you do and I will be making these bites this weekend! Yum.

  • Michelle McGee says:

    Wish they were made from non dairy ice cream! Won’t eat dairy due to cruelty in the dairy factory farms. Especially because the mommas and baby calves are ripped apart so humans get the calves milk they need, and not them!😢🐮🐮Momma cows grieve terribly, babies are in terror!

  • Susie says:

    Actually, Maria, I’ve had a problem with ALL of your links. They just turn blue. And nothing happens.

    Gorgeous recipe!

  • Shannon says:

    Oh my! 2 hours is going to be a long time to wait for these to be ready. The two individual layers taste amazing separately, I really can’t wait to taste the finished product. Thanks for another amazing recipe!

  • Lyn says:

    Good morning~ When I try to type in your search engine, the letters type in backwards. I’m not sure if it’s my computer, or the site. Just letting you know, and maybe you can take a look at it. Thank you! Lyn

  • Tracy says:

    This looks so yummy, I’m going to make it today! Thanks for sharing so many wonderful recipes!

  • Brenda Gadzik says:

    Do you have a way to do your program without dairy and be successful? Thank you!

  • Kelley says:

    Hi Maria – I’m fairly certain this is not something you want to hear ever but especially on vacation – there is definitely something going coocoo with your search bar. It truly is putting the letters in backwards… sorry. Thought you’d want to know! Thanks for this delicious recipe!

      Yes, the developers are looking at it. For now you can skinny up the browser window until the menu goes to the 3 lines. Then the search in that menu works.
