I absolutely love mince pies, but they are certainly a huge no, no when following a keto or low-carb diet. It’s been a challenge to create mincemeat without dried fruit and sugar, so I’ve played around with several recipes and eventually settled on this one. At just less than 4 carbs per pie, these mince pies are certainly going to satisfy that desire for crispy, sweet, shortcrust pastry and Christmas-spiced fruit filling.
BLACKBERRY JAM with BRANDY & VODKA
Blackberries are one of my favourite fruits, so it is wonderful to have developed a recipe that will allow me to eat sweet, juicy blackberries, on my keto diet. I use frozen blackberries for this recipe as I pick them myself at the end of each summer season and freeze them at home. They have a much better flavour than forced out-of-season blackberries you can buy in the shops. At just 2g per tablespoon, this jam is a daily treat you can easily afford – even on keto!
STRAWBERRY & CHERRY VODKA JAM
OMG – Who can eat jam like this on a diet? This fantastic, sweet, and flavourful jam is a must for anyone with a sweet tooth on a keto, low-carb or regular low-calorie diet. The only carbohydrates come from the strawberries themselves and at only 1.65 carbs per tablespoon, it’s a lovely breakfast or afternoon treat you simply can’t afford to miss. The cherry vodka adds a wonderfully decadent feel to the jam to make it a special Christmas treat.
