VANILLA ICE CREAM Summertime means that you have to have ice cream right? I was never a lover of ice cream as a child, but now that I make my own, I can think of little better than rich, creamy ice cream with a selection of toppings to suit your mood. So here is my
COCONUT ICE CREAM Summertime means that you have to have ice cream right? I was never a lover of ice cream as a child, but now that I make my own, I can think of little better than rich, creamy ice cream with a selection of toppings to suit your mood. I found it difficult
PISTACHIO PRALINE Oh, this is so wonderful. If you love sweet, crunchy, nutty toppings for your desserts, then this is a to-die-for recipe! So simple and so wonderful. The sweet tang of almost pure (keto) sugar combined with the distinctive taste of pistachio is the perfect combination for ice-creams, panna cotta and other creamy desserts.
RASPBERRY COULIS This lovely sweet and tart coulis is perfect for serving over Panna Cotta or Ice-Cream. It takes just a few moments to make, can be stored in your fridge for a couple of weeks (if it lasts that long) and one batch will make approximately 350ml of coulis, which equates to 24 tablespoons
CHOCOLATE SAUCE FOR DESSERTS Like the raspberry coulis and the pistachio praline on the two Panna Cotta recipes on this blog, you can mix and match the sauces, coulis and toppings on many different desserts. I find they are all just wonderful on panna cotta, but they are also rather wonderful on home-made keto ice-cream.
PANNA COTTA with RASPBERRY COULIS What could be nicer than a cool and refreshing, creamy and satisfying dessert with a sweet, but tangy raspberry sauce? This simple-to-make and delicious panna cotta recipe makes 6 wonderful desserts, it’s made in moments and has only 3 net carbs per serving, including the raspberry coulis, you can make
ROSE PANNA COTTA with PISTACHIO PRALINE I have always loved Turkish Delight and when making regular panna cotta, decided to try adding rose water and decorating with pistachios and chocolate to give that rich, decadent taste of Turkish Delight. This lovely, recipe is simple to make and looks just stunning when presented in glasses –
EGG CUSTARD TART You will not know the difference between this wonderful traditional tart and the non-keto version. The pastry is sweet and crispy and the egg custard is sweet and creamy with the delicious taste of nutmeg. At only 4.5 carbs per slice, you’ll be so glad you gave the recipe a try. INGREDIENTS
BERRY PAVLOVA with STICKY TOFFEE SAUCE Here’s a truly wonderful summer dessert. What could be nicer than soft, luscious, sweet pavlova with ripe strawberries and droplets of sticky toffee sauce? At only 3.5 net carbs per serving, this is going to be our favourite dessert throughout the summer. Ingredients – For an 8 serving Pavlova
LEMON MERINGUE PIE
Here’s another delicious, traditional, family-favourite for those sunny, spring and summer days ahead! This lovely lemon-tart filling is complemented beautifully by crisp, sweet pastry and soft, sweet meringue. With a dash of double cream to serve, it’s the perfect dessert or afternoon-tea treat.
At only 5 carbs per serving, what are you waiting for?
ALMOND & RASPBERRY MUFFINS
I just love the combination of almond and raspberries. There’s something rich and luxurious about these two flavours together and this recipe was inspired by my love of bakewell tarts. The muffins are simple to make, bake in 18 minutes and can easily be frozen. These lovely muffins have just 4.5 carbs each and are delicious with a cup of tea or coffee or warmed in the microwave and served with cream or custard as a dessert or pudding.
As a chocoholic, it has been lovely to work on my regular gluten-free brownie recipe to find a keto version – and here it is! These yummy brownies are incredibly rich and lightly gooey in the middle. I’ve baked them here in individual square tins (because they look pretty), but they can also be baked in a square or oblong tin and cut into portions. This recipe makes 16 brownies and they have just 1.8 carbs each. (2.3 carbs each if you add walnuts). Delicious, rich, yummy brownies.
