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.
