Ready for a fat-burning, health-promoting dessert? Yes, please. Introducing Keto Zone MCT Oil Powder Double Chocolate Ice Cream made with Dutch Chocolate MCT Oil Powder.
It’s a mouthful to say, and a mouthful of deliciousness to eat. And what’s more, it only contains 6 ingredients and is easy to make.
No ice-cream maker? No problem. You can make this ice-cream in the freezer.
Here’s how to make Keto Zone MCT Oil Powder Double Chocolate Ice Cream and the top 3 reasons you should.
- In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add 2 cups heavy cream and erythritol.
- Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
- Stirring occasionally, simmer for ~35, until the mixture thickens. It should coat the back of a spoon, and the volume should be reduced by 50%. Last check: The mixture will pull away from the sides of the pan if you tilt the pan.
- Pour mixture into a large 9×13 baking dish. Whisk in vanilla and Dutch Chocolate MCT Oil Powder.
- Then, beat the remaining 1 cup cream using a hand mixer with a whisk on high for several minutes (2-3), until stiff peaks form. Warning: Don’t overmix, stop once stiff peaks begin to form.
- Fold the stiff-peak cream into mixture in dish, just 1/2 cup at a time. Do this carefully in order to not deflate the cream. Smooth the top of the mixture with a spatula.
- Add cacao nibs or high-cacao chips/chunks.
- Place parchment or wax paper over the top in to decrease ice-crystal formation.
- If you have an ice-cream maker, you can use it at this point instead of adding parchment paper and freezing.
- Freeze mixture in the dish for 5-6 hours, or until firm, stirring every 30 minutes for initial 2 hours and then every 60-90 minutes thereafter.
- To serve, allow to soften on a countertop for 10-30 minutes. Serve and enjoy! Yield 8, 1/2 cup servings.

3 Amazing Reasons to Eat Keto Zone MCT Oil Powder Double Chocolate Ice Cream
1. MCT Oil Powder Health Benefits
MCT Oil Powder is the powdered form of MCT oil. And, like all MCT oils, it has a concentrated amount of the most healthful medium chain triglyceride: caprylic acid (C8). This fatty acid supports:
- Heart Health: MCT Oil Powder has been shown to improve cholesterol profiles by decreasing LDL cholesterol, decreasing the number of LDL particles, and increasing HDL cholesterol (2, 3).
- Reduced Inflammation: MCTs can reduce inflammation in the body. In 2014, 30 adults with high cholesterol and inflammation consumed MCTs for 30 days. When retested, scientists found significant reductions in LDL, increases in HDL, and reductions in C-reactive protein (a marker for inflammation) (1).
- Brain Health: Ketones produced from the Keto Zone diet and MCT Oil Powder are associated with many benefits, including reduced brain degradation from aging and improved brain function (4).
- Weight Loss: MCTs have been shown to improve weight and BMI while keeping dieters more satiated than those eating high carbs.
- Energy: MCTs feed the mitochondrias of cells. These cellular components are the energy producers.
- Healthy Blood Sugars, Healthy Digestions, and more
Cacao (from the high-cacao nibs or chips) is highly antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. This improves health in cells throughout the body.
In addition, cacao contains nitric oxide, which increases artery dilation and blood flow to reduce blood pressure especially in older adults and those with hypertension (5, 6).
Cacao may also reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. One review of over 157,000 people showed that higher chocolate consumption was associated with a significantly lower risk of heart disease, stroke, and death (7).
