Tiramisu Ice Cream
My son Kai turns 8 years old on October 21st and he asked for coffee ice cream! My boys are true Ethiopians and LOVE anything coffee flavored. When I ask Kai what flavor of keto ice cream he wanted with his keto birthday cake, he said coffee and I thought Tiramisu! Yes! When I was in college I remember getting Ben & Jerry’s Tiramisu Ice Cream and I would eat the whole pint! Enjoying this sugar-free Tiramisu Ice Cream almost felt like I was cheating on my keto diet! It was that good!
Keto Ice Cream can often get too hard but if you click HERE, I have a lot of tricks on how to keep ice cream soft!
I LOVE this ice cream testimony!
