There are few treats that the Ketogenic diet allows. But today we tried something new…

Snow ice cream!

I found a few general ideas for making snow ice cream online then adapted it for Claire.

I decided to replace the milk or cream commonly used in this recipe with the KetoCal formula. Then, I measured 25gm of the KetoCal formula (powder form, mixed with water) and the girls set out to gather some fresh fallen snow. I think the key to achieve the best taste is having good CLEAN snow!

 

There wasn’t much to it,

1. Pour the milk:

2. Add snow

3. Keep mixing until it turns to ice cream

4. Smiles sprinkled on top 🙂

Snow ice cream was the perfect answer for a “keto kid” that hasn’t had a treat like this in ages. I would say it was a success. I also made a small batch with whole milk and sugar for everyone else, however they are used to the good stuff and were not as impressed with this.

I have to say I was impressed with the texture. It turned out better than previous times I’ve tried to make “special” ice cream for Claire. Normally, Claire has to eat or drink every drop of every morsel on her plate since it is measured so accurately to achieve the proper diet ratio. The nice thing about using the formula is that it already has the proper ratio. So, if she doesn’t finish it all, it’s ok, since it’s calculated correctly. It just means fewer calories than figured. Too confusing? Let’s just say this is an easy treat for me to prepare and let her go.

We had lots of fresh snow today, but it was too windy & cold to play in,so this was a good way to have fun without getting Claire too cold.

It is possible on a butter diet to say hello Snowy Treats while we also say…Hello Butter

PS~I apologize for the poor quality of pictures, I was using my cell phone. When I grow up I would love to have a beautiful photography blog,it’s just not today!
