Dilly Bar Recipe

July is National Ice Cream Month! But honestly, I think every day is a great day for ice cream and who doesn’t love a Dilly Bar? I get asked all the time for a keto ice cream recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream machine and here is one of my low carb ice cream recipes that do not require one. You could also make this Cherry Dilly Bar recipe dairy free if needed!

  • Dan Burse says:

    Hi Maria
    My name is Dan Burse. I am 52 years old. I have type 2 diabetes and suffered a heart attack 5 years ago. I have been folliwing the keto lifestyle for the last year and a half. I cut out dairy after purchasing your 30 day keto cleanse book. I also do intermittent fasting most days. I am having trouble losing the extra weight. My glucose levels still fluctuate between 4-7. I want to make sure I’m getting my protein levels in daily but how do I do that in a 6-8 hour eating window? Also my cholesterol levels are very high. But I refuse to take statins. Any advice you might have for me would be greatly appreciated.

  • Chrissy Bryant says:

    Hi Maria, I just got done reading you and your husbands books “Keto”, wow amazing book and so much information. I do have one question for you that I’m hoping you can answer for me. I’m a vegeterian(I I do eat dairy but no meat) is it possible to do a Keto diet if I don’t eat meat?

  • Shelley LaFortune says:

    Does eating keto change sensitivity to sun? I have not used sunscreen this year (a first) and have been outside lots and have not burned. I recall finding a reference to this (by you, I think) and cannot recall the source (to return to it myself).
    Thank you kindly (for all that you do and share),

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      There is a lot of N=1 evidence from our clients that this is the case. They burn much less when keto. I believe this is due to the diet being low in inflammatory omega-6 vegetable and seed oils so the skin gets made up of more stable saturated fats making the skin less susceptible to burning. And of course eliminating the sugars. 🙂

  • We have nut allergies in my family. Can coconut milk be substituted for the almond milk?
