I don't know a single person who doesn't love ice cream. I also don't know a single person who doesn't love easy and convenient recipes. We've combined both with this Low Carb Mason Jar Ice Cream! We recreated my favorite ice cream flavor, butter pecan, into a easy to make, no equipment needed recipe. Does it get any better?!
Our Favorite Low Carb Ice Cream Brands!
A lot of the time we are simply looking for a quick and convenient dessert to grab and take to the couch! We get it. We are the same way. However, sometimes the price of low carb ice creams in store can be very off putting and the macros aren't exactly what you're looking for. Our keto mason jar ice cream costs a fraction of the cost of store bought and the flavor can be tailored to your preference!
If you are feeling a little spendy, however, some of our favorite low carb ice cream brands are So Delicious (butter pecan or mint chip), Enlightened ice cream popsicles, and Halo Top (mainly the original flavors - vanilla, strawberry and chocolate)! Give those a try and let us know how they compare to our homemade version.
Heavy Cream Recipes
You may be thinking, "this recipe goes hard on the heavy cream," and that is totally understandable, but it sure beats the part skim milk they use in Halo Top. We want real full fat recipes and smaller portions in my opinion. Some other great recipes we have with heavy cream are the Low Carb Chocolate Gelato, Easy No Bake Cheesecakes, and one of my favorites, Cheddar Bacon Soup!
Easy Mason Jar Ice Cream!
The best part about this recipe: it takes ten minutes to put together and it's homemade. The worst part about this recipe: you have to wait three for it to set in the freezer before you can dig in. I would say weighing the good vs the bad we have a sure winner with mason jar ice cream recipe.

Mason Jar ice Cream
- In a small skillet, melt butter. Toast pecans until lightly browned, 5-6 minutes, then remove from heat and cool completely.
- Combine all ingredients in a wide mouth 24 ounce-sized mason jar. Secure the lid and shake vigorously for 3-5 minutes. The liquid in side should double in volume, filling the mason jar.
- Freeze for 3 hours up to 24 hours.
- <b>Note:</b> at the three hour mark we found the ice cream to be perfect consistency. If you are freezing for significantly longer/over night be sure to let it sit out for 5-7 minutes prior to enjoying.
Serving Size: 1/8th recipe **This recipe is high in fat (basically an ice cream fat bomb) so feel free to balance it out by cutting out some of the pecans or making a different flavor using your favorite protein powder!
