Delicious, creamy, frozen custard...

Hello everybody! I was looking for a good ice cream recipe! Ice cream has been my "stumbling block" more than once while on Trim Healthy Mama... Particularly because I am not satisfied with just any ice cream... and while I had found really great recipes out there that could kind of keep the cravings at bay... I hadn't really found what I was looking for... Especially because I had been spoiled with the best ice cream of all: "Wisconsin Frozen Custard" while I lived up north for 4 years when I had just gotten married.

You already know Wisconsin is famous for its dairy... the delicious cheeses! YUM! Custard is a specialty there.... whether  you get it at places like:


Adrian's is our very favorite
or even "old style" at Grandma and Grandpa's backyard

... When you have frozen custard there... you become an "ice cream snob" whether you like it or not.

Culver's has great frozen custard as well... and when we first moved to Texas (about 4 years ago) we were so thrilled to find out there was a Culver's less than 1 mile away from our new home... But, then, I wasn't so happy when, in my efforts to lose weight I felt I had to just forget about frozen custard entirely... unless I "cheated" so cheating I did... not often because I am pretty strong and strict when it comes to staying on plan... but when I did OH I DID! So just recently I took on the challenge to make my own frozen custard at home... but this time... it would be SUGAR FREE!!!

What's even better, my recipe is simple yet truly satisfying (even for the most strict critic)... it does require a bit of patience but the result is definitely worth the effort! This recipe is so good that you could even have it for breakfast! Why not?

If you are a "Trim Healthy Mama" you know why a "heavy" dessert like this one is COMPLETELY GUILT FREE ... if you don't know what Trim Healthy Mama is yet... You are missing out! Get your Trim Healthy Mama book here

Here's my recipe:

Paloma's guilt-free VANILLA frozen custard
THM - "S" for Satisfying

Yield: 1 pint
Servings: 2


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 10 Packets of Truvia
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk
  • pinch of sea salt
  • splash (about 1/2 teaspoon) of vanilla extract


  1. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and truvia until well combined. Whisk in cream and cashew milk until yolk mixture is fully incorporated.
  2. Place pot over medium-low heat (from 1 to 8 it would be a "2") and cook, constantly whisking (don't stop or you'll get scrambled eggs, don't turn the heat any higher either), until a thin (it won't thicken much yet) custard forms on a spoon and a finger swiped across the back leaves a clean line, or until custard temperature reaches 170°F. Stir in salt and vanilla.
  3. Strain custard through a Fine Mesh Strainer and chill in the refrigerator until it is very cold (at least 4 hours). Churn in Ice Cream Maker according to manufacturer's instructions, then serve right away or transfer to an airtight container and chill in freezer for 1 hour to let custard firm up slightly. Serve custard within two hours of it being made, don't store for another day.
  4. Optional and not so purist: Drizzle sugar free chocolate syrup on top!
