Butter pecan ice cream was always one of my favorites… The other day I really wanted it.. I’ve made low calorie ice cream so much, I don’t know whyyyyy it took me so long to make a butter pecan one!!
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 stevia packets
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 TBSP butter extract
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 TBSP chopped pecans (Optional)
Mix the 1 cup of almond milk, stevia packet, vanilla extract, and butter extract. Pour this into ice cube trays and allow it to fully freeze; it’ll take around 1.5-2 hours. When you’re ready to have ice cream, place the ice cubes in a blender with the xanthan gum and 1/3 cup more almond milk. Blenddddddd. Stay patient with this; the longer you blend it, the thicker it gets. Eventually it hits a point where you just KNOW it’s done – the thickness becomes perfect. Stir in the pecans.
If desired, top with more pecans. I also put a chopped up PB blondie on mine! Delicious.
