Sugar Free Desserts
Sugar free desserts can be a real treat once you've completed Phase I.
Do be careful though. We can become quite comfortable and treat ourselves daily to desserts. This is a mistake. These recipes are generally quite nutrient dense and pack a lot of calories which may not make you gain but it can certainly bring your losses to a screeching halt.
Toasted Coconut Flakes
Melt coconut oil in stainless frying pan on medium heat. Add coconut flakes constantly stirring to slowly toast coconut.
When finished, transfer to paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with sea salt.
Optional seasoning is within your imagination and turns sugar free desserts into a snack instead!
This recipe is acceptable for all stages
Strawberry Ice Cream Treat
Add all ingredients to a Magic Bullet or blender and mix, serve topped with dollop of heavy whipping cream and strawberry slice, serve immediately.
You can also make this recipe in an ice cream maker per the instructions.
This is one of my favorites because it is so simple.
This is a Phase II recipe
Sugar Free Lemon Cheesecake
Combine ingredients for crust, and press into the bottom of a spring form pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 375 until slightly browned.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 and mix cheesecake ingredients. Pour onto nut crust and bake for 60-90 minutes. Every oven is different so watch your cake closely. The internal temperature of a completely baked cheesecake is generally 155 degrees F.
This is best refrigerated for 24 hours before serving.
Substitutions include, Strawberry, Blueberry, Orange and Pumpkin. 1/2 Cup fruit/pumpkin will suffice. Save additional fruits for garnish. If you eliminate the crust, you will save carbohydrate value. I generally do not use a crust on my cheesecakes. One of my favorite sugar free desserts!
This is a Phase II recipe
Mixed Nut Brittle
In a bowl, add 2 egg whites and beat until fluffy, add 1 cup powdered (I use a Magic Bullet ) xylitol/erythritol and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice mix. Blend together in bowl and add nuts. Mix together thoroughly and spread out on greased cookie sheet or baking paper approx. 3/4 inch thick.
Bake in oven at 300 for approx. 20 min. This mixture can burn easily so watch closely!
Allow to cool for more than an hour.
Peanut Butter Cookies
Preheat oven to 350. Begin by powdering your sugar substitute. As above, I use a Magic Bullet but a food processor will do. Mix all ingredients together, roll into balls and with a fork, smash in a criss cross pattern. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
This is an old simple recipe that we used to make in our high sugar days. I'm glad I remembered this for sugar free desserts!
This is one of the most warming sugar free desserts.
