Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Stir and swirl it enough that it doesn't separate or brown. Add 2 cups of heavy cream and your powdered sweetener. Whisk together and bring to a boil.

2. Simmer

Reduce to a simmer and stir occasionally. Simmer this mixture until it coats the back of a spoon, it should take about 30-40 minutes.

3. Cool

Once you've reduced your mixture, remove it from the heat. Allow it to cool to room temperature. Once cool, add your vanilla extract and vanilla bean (remember to scrape the seeds into the bowl and then add the full bean).

4. Finish Mixing and Chill

Add your remaining heavy cream and mix thoroughly. Chill your final mixture in the fridge for four hours.

5. Churn it
