What Is a Carnivore Diet?

The Carnivore diet is an animal-based eating routine, allowing meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, and limited dairy while excluding all plant-based foods like vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes.

The Carnivore diet aims to boost weight loss, decrease digestive problems, improve mental clarity, and reduce inflammation by minimizing carbohydrate intake and maximizing fat and protein.

Substituting carbs with protein and fat leads the body to a state of ketosis, i.e., burning fat for energy instead of carbs. It means that your body uses fat to produce energy, which leads to fat melt and weight loss.

Tips to Make Healthier Carnivore Ice Cream

Using the following ingredients in your Carnivore ice cream recipes can help you make healthier snacks. Let's learn about them.

Try Raw Heavy Cream

Raw heavy cream is generally more beneficial than pasteurized cream. Studies indicate that consuming raw dairy results in 50% lower possibility of developing allergies and 41% lower risk of asthma in children (source). Raw dairy can also protect against various illnesses for having naturally immunizing effects (source).

Raw dairy contains 100% intact proteins, enzymes, and immunoglobulins, and higher levels of levels of vitamin A, E, zinc, calcium, iron, and B vitamins.

Add A2 Heavy Cream

Most dairy products contain A1 casein protein, which breaks down into beta-casomorphin-7 in the body, which is a peptide that can damage the pancreas and set off autoimmune responses throughout the body (source).

However, studies show that A2 dairy causes less digestive discomfort and does not get broken down into BC7 (source).


Carnivore ice cream is a yummy, zero-carb snack for the Carnivore dieters who wish to eat ice cream but don’t want to include dairy or sugar.

When making Carnivore ice cream, you’d better keep the sweeteners at a minimum and focus on Carnivore-friendly ingredients. Also, you can use your creativity and modify the Carnivore ice cream recipes to reach new tastes.
