4 Easy Collagen Ice Cream Recipes (They’re Dairy-Free & Keto-Friendly!)

July 28th, 2020

We put collagen in everything—mocktails, coffee, brownies, you name it. And this summer, we’re adding it to ice cream. What better way to cool off and get an added boost of protein? Among other benefits, of course.

These four ice cream recipes are no-churn, dairy-free, keto-friendly, and conveniently created using Thrive Market flavored collagen. For each of these recipes, you’ll need to plan a bit ahead by refrigerating cans of coconut cream for 12 hours. When opening the can, scoop out the coconut cream, which you’ll use for these recipes, and reserve any liquid for another use.

Mocha Caramel Swirl Collagen Keto Ice Cream

If you’re looking for a unique ice cream flavor this summer, this mocha caramel recipe is creamy (but without the dairy) and perfect for backyard star-gazing. To make this recipe dairy-free, select your preferred dairy-free chocolate.

Yield: 3 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 16 hours and 15 minutes

Ingredients

For the Ice Cream:

2 14-ounce cans Thrive Market Coconut Cream, refrigerated for at least 12 hours
3 scoops Thrive Market Mocha Caramel Collagen
½ cup Thrive Market Cacao Powder
¼ cup Monkfruit Sweetener
1-2.8oz Lily’s Sweets Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Bar, chopped
½ cup Keto Caramel, recipe below

For the Keto Caramel Sauce:

½ cup Thrive Market Coconut Milk
3 tbsp Monkfruit Syrup Sweetener
1 tbsp Thrive Market Almond Butter
1 tsp Thrive Market Vanilla Extract
½ tsp Thrive Market Sea Salt

Instructions

Add coconut cream to the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Whip until creamy and fluffy, similar to whip cream. Add collagen powder, cacao powder and monkfruit sweetener. Whip until fully incorporated. Stir in chopped chocolate.

To make the Keto Caramel Sauce, add coconut milk, sweetener, almond butter, vanilla and salt into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil for one minute and whisk to combine. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for five minutes, until it becomes a thick caramel consistency. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

Transfer half of the ice cream mixture into a 9×5 loaf pan and spread evenly. Drizzle half of caramel sauce and create swirls. Top with remaining ice cream mixture, drizzle remaining caramel sauce, and repeat with the swirling process. Cover and place in the freezer for two to four hours—you want it to be frozen, but still scoopable. If it becomes too hard, let sit at room temperature.
