How To Make Sugar Free Vanilla Ice Cream

Finally, a homemade ice cream for diabetics or those watching their sugar intake. Freezing cold sugar free vanilla ice cream is the perfect accompaniment to many no sugar desserts and cakes. It is also delicious served on its own, or with fresh fruit, in a bowl. Liven it up by adding one or two extra ingredients or combining it with a different flavor.

Use a vanilla pod for maximum flavour in this variation of a traditional recipe. Serve with a little grated sugar free chocolate or make into a sundae with chopped nuts, sliced banana and freshly whipped cream.


  • One vanilla pod
  • Three large eggs
  • Two tablespoons granulated sweetener (or as per manufacturer’s instructions)
  • 350ml fresh double cream
  • 350ml fresh single cream


Take a medium sized pan and pour your single and double cream into it. Take your vanilla pod and slit it along one side. Then take a teaspoon and scrape out all the seeds. Put the seeds into the cream. Cut the pod into quarters and drop it into the pan too. Put to one side for half an hour to allow the liquid to draw the flavour. Then heat the cream and milk over a low heat, stirring occasionally, until it almost reaches boiling point. Once again, set aside – this time for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, crack your eggs and separate your yolks into a medium sized bowl. Mix with a fork and then pour your warm vanilla cream in. Return to your pan and place back on a low heat. Keep stirring until the liquid thickens and becomes custard-like. Once again, do not allow the mixture to boil, however. Then remove from the heat, pick out your pieces of vanilla pod and stir in your sweetener. Pour your mixture into a large metal bowl and allow to cool. Stir every so often if a skin seems to be forming. Once cool, cover and place in the freezer. Allow to freeze for about three hours then remove from freezer and whisk in a blender. Replace in the freezer then repeat at least three more times every three hours or so. When you are ready to serve the ice cream, remove from the refrigerator 10 minutes before scooping.
