Almond Caramel Prebiotic Cookies (Keto)

These are possibly the highest fibre cookies you will ever sink your teeth into. The more I read about our precious microbiome, the more I realise how we need to nurture it. Soluble fibre is essential for the probiotics in our colon and we need to do everything we can to ensure they are well-fed and looked after. Many foods that contain prebiotics (soluble fibre) are too high in carbs, which is why I love inulin powder. The one I use is made from chicory root and you only need 5g a day (5g = 0.4g carbs). I stir inulin powder into my yogurt every day (that’s a double-whammy: a probiotic and prebiotic all-in-one-bowl!), but here I decided to add it to my cookie mix. The high-fibre, sugar-free syrup I use is also packed with fibre – resulting in these delicious cookies coming in at only 2.7g carbs and a whopping 16g fibre each!

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream (Keto)

Until the stores can offer us a decent keto ice cream, we are left to our own devices. Making your own ice cream is dead easy and very satisfying. I invested in this ice cream maker that I bought from Amazon and I love it. Its excellent quality and does the job perfectly. Funnyman loves this simple vanilla ice cream and enjoys it sprinkled with nuts or topped with fresh blueberries. Macros are calculated that one serving = two scoops (50g per scoop), therefore one serving is 100g / 3.5oz. All that at 2g carbs! Enjoy!

Madagascan Vanilla Cream Lollies (Low-carb)

Keto Vanilla Lollies
Keto Vanilla Lollies

I always have a batch of lollies for Funnyman in the freezer (they usually take me less than 10 minutes to make once a week). He loves them as after-dinner treats, and enjoying them most nights has never knocked him out of ketosis. This time, I decided to go back to basics with a simple vanilla-cream. He was not disappointed. Unlike the majority of the other lolly recipes on this site, here I used mostly double cream and only a dash of Greek yogurt for some acidity. I scraped the seeds from a good quality Madagascan vanilla pod (hence the name), but if you are on a tighter budget, you can get away with two teaspoons of vanilla essence you probably already available in your pantry. (Just be sure to check the labels: vanilla paste contains sugar)…

Chocolate Mousse Lollies (Low carb)

Creamy and chocolatey, these lollies were made with whipped cream, giving a light, airy texture which makes me rethink how I have been making all the other lollies up until now. A simple addition of confectioner’s sweetener and melted 85% Lindt®, and you have a dreamy after-dinner treat. I marked this low carb and not strictly keto, due to the presence of soy in the Lindt®. As we know, soy should be avoided on the keto lifestyle. However, if you are simply living the ‘if it fits your macros’ lifestyle, these lollies will be a great addition to your summer creations. The lolly moulds I use are 100ml / 3.4 fl. oz capacity, but there is so much air whipped into the mixture, you will only use about 70g of mixture to fill each mould. This was how the macros were calculated. I also added a few drops of chocolate essence which really lifts the flavour to another level – you will love it! NOTE: If you choose not to freeze the mixture as lollies, enjoy these as a simple chocolate mousse served up in six ramekins. Unlike other chocolate mousse recipes, these do not require any ‘setting’ time in the fridge – they can be enjoyed immediately.

Yogurt Cream with Raspberries & Ground Flax (Keto)

Yogurt with Raspberries and Ground Flax
Yogurt with Raspberries and Ground Flax

These are great little yogurt pots, made using a combination of full-fat Greek yogurt and whipped double cream (sweetened with a little confectioner’s Swerve). I mashed fresh raspberries to stir through for some lovely natural sweet tartness, and I couldn’t resist adding ground (milled) flaxseed for added goodness and fibre. I LOVE the combination of plain yogurt and ground flax – it reminds me of the milk I slurped up as a child after finished a bowl of All-bran flakes. It adds a lovely ‘bran’ flavour to these yogurt cream pots and I am sure you will love it as much as I do. It will make for a great high-fat breakfast, but I marked this under dessert category too because… well, why not? (Be sure to check out all the Breakfast recipes and Dessert recipes on this site.)

Low-carb Chocolate Mousse

Low Carb Chocolate Mousse
Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

Only 5.8g carbs per serving for a lovely low carb chocolate mousse dessert! I used 85% Lindt® chocolate (only the best for Funnyman) to make this airy, creamy mousse. Very dark chocolate can be quite bitter, but its the best option when baking. I added a little Swerve® (my favourite brand of confectioner’s Erythritol) which adds just the right amount of sweetness. What a treat! (NOTE: If you choose to use completely unsweetened chocolate buttons (as opposed to 85% Lindt), you will need to increase the amount of sweetener.)

‘Turkish Delight’ White Chocolate Mousse (Keto)

Keto Low carb Turkish Delight Mousse
Keto Low carb Turkish Delight Mousse

Something for upcoming Valentine’s Day… This easy, low-carb white chocolate mousse was made using only a few ingredients, with a distinct ‘Turkish Delight’ flavour coming from the necessary addition of rose water. Its a lovely, fragrant dessert that is so pretty to look at – and even better to tuck into! I added a little pink food colouring, but that is entirely optional. Each serving is approx 135g / 4.8oz, which is very generous, and only 2.8g carbs per serving, – you can get away with it! You can choose to simply divide the mixture between 4 dessert bowls, or you can pipe them in like I did. It was only afterwards I realised it resembles a pink rose (well, at a stretch), so I encourage you to put in the little extra effort. Important technique tip: Allow the melted cocoa butter buttons to cool sufficiently before adding to the cream to avoid a grainy mousse. Also, be careful not to over-whip the cream, nobody wants rose water butter…

Mixed Berry Coconut Crumble (Keto)

A lovely, keto-friendly warm dessert to enjoy alongside pouring cream, my Keto Coconut Ice Cream or Keto Vanilla Ice Cream. The sharp, tart berries shine alongside the coconutty flavour of the crunchy crumble. If you have 6 ramekins, you may be better off baking these in them (as opposed to one pie dish), which makes for easier serving. If you choose to do this, place all the ramekins onto a tray when baking to ensure safe removal from the oven. #SafetyFirst

Sweet and Creamy ‘Fat Pots’ (Keto)

Keto Cream Bombs

Super simple little creamy sweet keto fat pots (topped with tart raspberries to cut through the rich creaminess). The recipe makes 4 small pots and can be done in ramekins, but I used little plastic pots which I found on amazon. (Ignore the product description that says they are disposable – I wash and re-use them.) Simply wrap in clingfilm and take these babies to work with you! Be sure to check out other Fat Bomb ideas on the site (some are sweet, other are savoury) or check out the Dessert section for great sweet treats!

Double-Chocolate Macadamia Cookies (Keto)

Keto Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

I first tasted dark chocolate-and-macadamia nut cookies on honeymoon in Malaysia more than 10 years ago. This was LBK (life-before-keto) and Funnyman and I were literally eating our way through Kuala Lumpur and Penang (it’s a foodie heaven!) One afternoon, when strolling through one of the enormous department stores* in KL, we found a mainstream cookie kiosk called Famous Amos. Their dark chocolate and macadamia cookies were sublime – and here I am, still thinking of them more than 10 years later! My version of keto cookies are chewier than I remember theirs being (this is because mine doesn’t feature sugar which is the reason why real cookies are ‘crunchy’), but they are just as fab. (Arb side note: Funnyman and I had a relatively quick engagement (he proposed 5.5 months after we met, and we were married 6 months later), but I knew he was the one for me because of our shared sense of dark humour. We still joke about the great cookies at Famous Anus

Berry Meringue Baskets (Keto)

Keto Berry Meringue Baskets

Funnyman and I don’t make a big deal of our keto journey (unless asked). When hosting, I simply make exact versions of the desserts I serve my guests and serve as normal, making sure we get the keto-friendly versions. This past summer, when making little berry meringue baskets for my guests, I whipped up a sugar-free version for  us. While my rustic meringue baskets weren’t snow-white like the store-bought versions my guests received, they were still pretty damn tasty and hit the sweet spot. If you prefer to make a mess of this (I mean, to literally make a Berry Mess), simply use the Mini Meringues recipe and mix it all together just before serving… (as opposed to making a pretentious, deconstructed version like I have done here by piping them into baskets…)

I told you I was a lolly-making machine! My Homemade Keto Coconut Ice cream was so popular with Funnyman, I used the leftover mixture to make keto coconut popsicles. If you like the idea of keto lollies, do check out all the lolly flavours on this site (all of which make Funnyman giddy with excitement when he notices a fresh batch in the freezer… :) I struggle to find coconut cream at most stores (although ASDA sometimes has the Blue Dragon brand – which is what I used. “Creamed coconut” or “coconut block” did not work for me, so I highly encourage you to source the one I use. For your benefit, here is the link to get it online.
