This Keto Maple-Walnut Frozen Custard is delicious all year round!

I was never a fan of vanilla ice cream. Chocolate all the way. However, I tasted frozen vanilla custard for the first time at an ice cream shop in York, Pennsylvania. Frozen custard can be created in 1919 in Coney Island in New York. Ice cream vendors Archie and Elton Kohr discovered that when they added egg yolks to ice cream, it had a smoother texture. The addition of egg yolks helped the ice cream stay cold longer. This was a fabulous discovery to help their frozen dessert stay cold on hot summer days along the Coney Island boardwalk. The treat made its way to Chicago for the World’s Fair in 1933, where it was quickly adopted as a regional specialty.

I fell in love with this frozen dessert right away. Frozen custard is different from ice cream. It’s the cooking. The process that makes this dessert taste so special.

My husband is not a big fan of ice cream. But he loves frozen custard, too. It has a whole different flavour because the egg yolks are slowly blended and cooked with the cream.  

This recipe is called French Vanilla rather than just vanilla because in the making of ice cream if egg yolks are added it’s called the “French” recipe. Since this custard contains egg yolks I decided to call this custard French Vanilla!

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO FROZEN CUSTARD?

The addition of egg yolks (from pasture raised chickens) to cream (or full-fat coconut milk) and sweetener add more protein, calcium, and potassium to this Keto Low-Carb Maple-Walnut Frozen Custard. Pasture-raised egg yolks are known to be highly nutritious compared to those from caged hens. They are an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals.

The nutritional value of pasture-raised egg yolks is largely due to the hens’ diet, which is rich in natural food sources such as insects, plants, and seeds. The yolk of a pasture-raised egg is packed with essential nutrients, including vitamins A, D, E, and K, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. Vitamin A is crucial for maintaining healthy vision and immune system function, while vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and supports bone health.

Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that protects cells from damage, and vitamin K plays a vital role in blood clotting. In addition to vitamins, pasture-raised egg yolks are also rich in minerals such as iron, phosphorus, and selenium. Iron is essential for healthy blood cell production, while phosphorus is necessary for strong bones and teeth. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent cellular damage and supports thyroid function.

Consequently, pasture-raised egg yolks are a highly nutritious food source that can provide a wide range of health benefits. Incorporating them into your diet can help ensure that you are getting the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to function optimally.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO FROZEN CUSTARD?

If you want to partner wine with your  Keto Low-Carb Maple-Walnut Frozen Custard, you have a couple of options.  In following a Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle, we don’t want to use up your carbs on a glass of wine.  You have a couple of options. Drink whatever wine you like (as long as it’s bone dry) and don’t worry about pairing the wine to dish.

Enjoy your wine the way you like it. If you like to create harmony between the wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the wine to match the sweetness.  Add a pinch of monk fruit sweetener to your glass of wine.  Choose a white like Riesling or Gewurztraminer or a pink rose. These varieties taste great when bone dry or sweet.  So they taste great with the added sweetener.  The wine’s sweetness will complement the sweetness in the dessert. 

WINE TIPS:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ICE CREAM AND FROZEN CUSTARD?

While ice cream is classically made from milk or cream and sweetener, the Keto Low-Carb Maple-Walnut Frozen Custard is prepared with cream, sweetener, and egg yolks. During the preparation, the simmer custard, when added, heats without cooking the yolks, thus ensuring that they are not raw. The yolks thicken the custard.

WHAT DAIRY DO YOU USE TO PREPARE YOUR KETO FROZEN CUSTARD?

Your Keto Low-Carb Maple-Walnut Frozen Custard can be made with cream or full-fat coconut milk. It will thicken with the added egg yolks. You can sweeten your custard with a natural sweetener like Swerve granular or brown sugar, stevia or erythritol. You can also make custard using coconut yogurt rather than milk or cream.
