Ingredients used for the sugar free butterscotch ice cream
Simple ingredients that make you feel good without the sugar spikes.
- Butterscotch Pudding: we used this Simply Delish Sugar Free Butterscotch Pudding for this recipe.
- Cream Cheese: for that mild sweet taste and pleasant tang makes this pie feel like a cheesecake.
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk: keeping it low carb while adding some almond and vanilla flavors.
- Erythritol: this is my favorite sweetener as I find it is the closest sweetener to sugar and as a type 2 diabetic it does not seem to spike my blood sugars.
