A few months ago, I started following a Keto-based diet. It took a little trial and error in the beginning but after a few days, and a few slip ups, I’ve settled into a new routine and mindset when it comes to eating. While meals have been easy for me, it’s my gigantic sweet tooth that was setting me back. Once I found some simple and delicious Keto-friendly dessert options, things became a lot easier for me. This Orange Vanilla Keto Ice Cream, made with Atkins® Shakes from ACME, is one of my go-to desserts.
