Butter pecan ice cream is a must-try!
It’s that time of year again. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and nothing goes with a warm spring day quite like a delicious bowl of homemade ice cream. It may not quite be summertime yet, but we dare say it’s okay to celebrate the changing seasons a little early this year!
Butter pecan ice cream is a creamy blend of amazing flavor. While the entire recipe only calls for a few key ingredients, most of the flavor comes from the maple extract, pecans, and powdered erythritol. While there is no sugar added, you’ll still get plenty of sweetness with the erythritol blended right in. This makes the perfect dessert for low carb foodies and people who may be watching their sugar intake for other health purposes.
