Ferrero Rocher® is a popular chocolate truffle candy that starts out with a whole hazelnut which is coated by a thick layer of soft and creamy chocolate fudge, surrounded in a crunchy wafer, and then enrobed in milk chocolate with chopped hazelnuts.  It’s basically the definition of a foodgasm.

Too bad the ingredient list leaves much to be desired.  Those sweet treats are full of refined sugar and artificial flavorings.  So, I made a healthy homemade version!  They’re soooo good, but it’s been far too hot out lately here in Texas, so I wanted something that would keep me cool.  And BOOM.  Ice cream came to mind!

I adapted my Vanilla Protein Ice Cream recipe to make this chocolatey, hazelnutty variation.  For this Healthy Ferrero Rocher Ice Cream, I added Healthy Homemade Nutella to the “batter” and swirled in chopped hazelnuts after churning.

I topped my ice cream with Sugar-Free Chocolate Syrup and a sprinkle of chopped hazelnuts.  Every bite tastes like frozen Ferrero Rochers in the creamiest chocolate ice cream.  Every spoonful is like a dream come true!

Servings: 2 quarts
Prep Time: 30 mins

This mind-blowingly delicious Healthy Ferrero Rocher Ice Cream is so creamy, so chocolatey, and so hazelnutty, you might just fall in love!  Each spoonful is sweet, satisfying, and studded with chopped hazelnuts, it sure doesn't taste sugar free, low carb, high protein, and gluten free!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Freeze your ice cream maker bowl for 24+ hours (I used my KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment).
  • In a blender, add the yogurt, evaporated milk, Nutella, and stevia extract. Blend until smooth.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the protein powder, xanthan gum, and salt.  With the blender running, slowly add in the dry ingredients.  Blend until smooth.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Place the frozen ice cream maker attachment onto the stand mixer and turn on the "stir" speed. Pour the ice cream mixture into the ice cream bowl and churn for ~15 minutes (it will thicken, but not turn into ice cream).
  • Scoop the ice cream mixture into a freezer-safe dish and stir in the chopped hazelnuts. Cover and freeze until it's the texture you prefer (~4 hours). Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

After freezing solid, I find the best way to "thaw" the ice cream is in the fridge for a couple hours, rather than sitting on the counter or a quick blast in the microwave.
