Butter Pecan Ice Cream
, ,

If you’ve enjoyed our Pecan Sandies recipe you will love this Butter Pecan Ice Cream. This keto-friendly ice cream is dairy-free, sugar-free, and sweetened with our BochaSweet granular sweetener. Typically, most pecan ice cream recipes have added butter, but for this recipe we will substitute with coconut oil for a vegan-friendly version.

This recipe has a creamy vanilla taste with the added crunchiness of pecans. For this recipe you will be using full-fat coconut cream and then “buttered” pecans that are sautéed in coconut oil for a delicious taste. This non-dairy butter pecan ice cream is plant-based and totally 100% guilt free.
