Chocolate Ice Cream

Ingredients (Makes about 4 servings):
  • 3 eggs (and some cream of tartar, if you have any)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Choice of sweetener, to taste
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, to taste
  1. Get three bowls
  2. Separate egg whites and egg yolks in two separate bowls
  3. Put the heavy cream in the third bowl
  4. Use hand mixer (or whisk) to mix the egg whites first. Mix until stiff peaks form. Basically meringue. No biggie if you don't have cream of tartar, but a dash of it helps to form the meringue.
  5. Use the same mixer to mix the whipped cream. When somewhat stiffened yet still a little loose, mix in the sweetener and cocoa powder. It'll get kind of gloopy.
  6. Next, use the same mixer to mix the egg yolks until smooth and creamy-looking.
  7. GET RID OF THE MIXER! Use a spatula to fold egg yolks into the whipped cream mixture until fully incorporated.
  8. Fold egg whites into the mixture in #7. If you work with meringue a lot, you know how to do this. If you're a beginner, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Yie5V37E1w[2] and see how he folds the egg whites into the batter.
  9. Put the finished mixture into a freezer-safe container. Wait until frozen solid. Serve, enjoy.
You can leave the cocoa powder out and put vanilla extract in for a vanilla ice cream. In this case, mix heavy cream until stiff.
You can probably mix some strawberries in there too.
I dunno what the net carbs are, since I was wingin' it on the cocoa powder and truvia, but shouldn't be too much.
You can use the same mixer if you go exactly in order from egg whites -> heavy cream -> egg yolks. If for some reason you want to switch it up, clean your mixer each time.
