Is So Delicious No Sugar Added Ice Cream Ketogenic Friendly?

This post is part of a series where I estimate a foods effect on ketosis, give it a keto friendly rating, and determine how it can fit into a ketogenic diet. Here I cover the six kinds of So Delicious brand no sugar added coconut milk “non-dairy frozen desserts” also known as coconut milk ice cream.

How So Delicious No Sugar Added Ice Cream Fits in a Ketogenic Diet:

Ice Cream Pyramid

Don’t judge me..

Probably not the best everyday treat because of the extra carbs, price, and how easy they are to overeat. Similar to Quest Bars, the best time to have some is as a reward after difficult muscle glycogen depleting activities like lifting weights so the extra carbs go to refilling glycogen instead of elevating blood sugar.[2]Eating Academy: Ketones and Carbohydrates: Can they co-exist? – Peter Attia, M.D.

I personally don’t buy store bought ice cream anymore because it’s too easy to overeat and often puts me over the edge into low ketosis (0.5 – 1 mmol/L). I currently recommend getting your sweet fix with Chocoperfection because it’s delicious and 10/10 ketogenic friendly.

Here is their store locator, the pints are under frozen desserts and the bars are under frozen novelties. The sugar alcohols are not currently listed in the nutrition facts on their website so I checked them all in store.[3]I also emailed and called them to let them know because I’m such cool guy
