Inspired by Jeni’s Wild Berry Lavender ice cream, I created this blueberry lavender ice cream recipe, which is free from sugar, corn syrup and corn starch (ingredients in Jeni’s original recipe) in my efforts to make it keto friendly and sugar free.
It’s still creamy and delicious with a rich blueberry taste, a hint of lavender and a small hint of orange.
Although I skipped the corn starch and corn syrup to keep this sugar and grain free, the ice cream still churned beautifully, making that creamy Philly style type ice cream Jeni’s Ice Cream is so famous for.
I replaced the sugar with Swerve and stevia glycerite, used Nature’s Way wild blueberries, Nielsen Massey’s Orange extract, and Lavender Essential Oil. Be very cautious with lavender oil. One drop was all I needed, even if her original recipe says two drops.
Lavender Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe is Philly Style
Her ice creams are made Philly style which means cream cheese based and not custard based (using eggs). I like this style a lot. It tastes fresher, cleaner to me and is incredibly creamy. There is xanthan gum in cream cheese which helps to hold the ice cream together.
As she says in her book, her recipes are flavor driven as much as they are about consistency and texture. The first thing people are usually attracted to are her unique flavors; but they leave talking about how well balanced the ice cream is.
Make this Sugar Free for a Lavender Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe that is Keto Friendly
I am so happy to have my very own sugar-free version that doesn’t feel like a compromise. This lavender blueberry ice cream high in fat, and I’m not going to lie about that, but it’s low in carbs and a keto friendly ice cream. I’ve put it in small jars, which I can freeze for portioned out servings.
You could play with this recipe by using different berries, or skipping the lavender and orange. I use this ice cream machine.

Wild Berry Lavender Ice Cream (Keto Friendly) Sugar Free
- 1 cup wild blueberries see notes
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons swerve
- 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
- 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum Order xanthan gum here.
- 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 cups whole milk I use lower carb Fairlife
- 1/2 cup Granulated Swerve
- 10 drops teaspoons stevia glycerite if using swerve
- 1 drop Lavender Essential Oil
- 1/4 teaspoon Orange Extract Order Here
- Make a blueberry compote by bringing the blueberries, 1/4 cup water and two tablespoons granulated swerve to a boil.
- Simmer for a few minutes.
- Another option is to put frozen blueberries in Vitamix, when you're ready to mix the milk, cream and cream cheese and not use compote.
- Mix two tablespoons milk with cream cheese, salt, xanthan gum until well-incorporated. I use a blender.
- Heat 1/14 heavy cream, remaining milk, 1/2 cup granulated swerve until you reach a boil. Reduce heat, continue to boil for 4 minutes.
- Remove from heat, pour into cream cheese mixture.
- At this time, add either blueberry compote or frozen blueberries.
- I like to use a Vitamix and mix the berries completely to have a smooth mixture.
- Put in a stainless bowl over a big bowl of ice to bring an immediate chill. If you put in a plastic bag, the ice cream will get cold enough to churn right away.
- You can also refrigerate overnight.
- Take through ice cream machine for about twenty minutes..
- The ice cream will will take form, but still be a little soft.
- Pack in container with parchment or plastic wrap pressed against it and freeze for four hours.

Can I substitute coconut milk for the whole milk, and Monkfruit for the stevia?
I can’t answer about coconut milk, but you can use monkfruit.
I am a huge fan of Jeni’s ice creams and eager to try this recipe. I’m confused by the stevia glycerite amount listed in the ingredients. Is it 10 drops or 10 teaspoons? Do you heat the stevia glycerite with the heavy cream, milk, and granulated Swerve?
Where did you get your lavender essential oil?
I use Young Living.
At what point does the xanthan gum, orange extract, lavender oil, stevia and sea salt get added? Thank you
I redid the recipe to make it more clear. Thanks.

Hello. Thanks for the recipe.
Ice cream is a treat that everyone has known since childhood
Many mothers are afraid that cold sweetness provokes angina and other colds, especially in the summer. But this is nothing more than a myth. In fact, ice cream can not provoke a sore throat or cold if it is not eaten in large slices. Moreover, with regular use, the walls of the throat are hardened.
