Fried Ice Cream - 8 net carbs per serving.

That's right, fried ice cream... and it is really good. These can be kept in the freezer and fried when you are ready to eat. They are best fried, but are also good uncooked. I got the idea yesterday when I ate the last of my Cinnamunch pork rinds. For the icecream, I used Breyer's Carb Smart Vanilla. Breyer's claims only 4 net carbs per serving. But, since I count half of the carbs from sugar alcohols, I count this ingredient as 5.5 net carbs. The chocolate syrup is made by Walden Farms. It has zero calories, zero carbs, and zero sugar. I bought it on netrition.com but have since seen it for sale at our local food co-op.


Serves 2.


Ingredients*

1/2 cup crushed pork rinds
1/8 cup Splenda (the kind that measures equal to sugar)
1/2 t. cinnamon
2 scoops Breyer's Carb Smart Vanilla Ice cream
Unsweetened Whipping Cream
Maraschino Cherry (Optional, 2 extra carbs)

Instructions

Crush pork rinds and mix with Splenda and cinnamon. The colder the ice cream, the better. Scoop ice cream and role in mixture. Press and pat well to insure the mixture holds. If desired, deep fry in hot oil for one second. Basically, just dip it and pull it out. If you leave it in too long, the ice cream will melt and the coating will come off. Place in dish, add whipped cream, chocolate syrup. If you can afford 2 more carbs, top with a cherry. mmmm...mmmm... good!

Surfing around looking at different weight loss type blogs and found this. Not sure if this article about fried ice cream is supposed to indicated that it is good for you or not ... thought is was interesting.

I make a similar recipe but I crumble a couple of blue corn chips on mine (about 2 carbs). I do not think pork rinds on ice cream seems worth the few carbs saved, IMO.

I eat low carb and have for 10 years with perfect cholesterol. This recipe sounds amazing! You can eat bags and bags of pork rinds since they are zero carb and lose weight and get healthy.

Corn Chips and NOT low carb and NOT good for this way of eating.
