Desserts

A lot of development has gone into perfecting the desserts and sweet treats listed here. My preferred sweetener is Erythritol, which leaves no awful after-taste, and has no associated bad press! It can be purchased on amazon, as granulated and confectioner’s. Be sure to use the brands listed in the recipe, as that’s what I used for optimum results. Happy baking!

Keto Raspberry Rosewater Lollies

Keto Rosewater Raspberry Lollies

Funnyman loves his after-dinner treats so much (my Blueberry Lollies and Keto Brownies are his favourite), but I am getting bored churning them out since we started keto a few months ago, so I am now on a mission to shake things up and experiment with different flavours. These lollies were made using raspberries and rosewater and I added a drop or two of pink food colouring to make them pretty! Fragrant and creamy with little tart raspberry bits throughout, you should definitely give these a try!

Bribing Funnyman with my brownies is a nifty way to get him to do stuff around the house. I learnt this in wife-training school. He loves these keto brownies. (At 0.5g carbs per brownie, who wouldn’t?) They are the perfect size to hit the sweet spot and they make great fat bombs. I don’t have a sweet tooth at all, so making a batch of these along with a batch of Keto Blueberry Lollies for him once a week is my way of showing him how much I appreciate him going on this Keto journey with me. The brownies store well in the fridge (although they would disappear in a day if I did that), so I freeze them individually after cooling and slicing. We always have double cream in the house, so he often reheats them slightly after they have defrosted (2-3 hours in the fridge to defrost) and then he pours a little cream over them. Happy Husband = Happy Wifey…

Funnyman wasn’t entirely convinced when I broached the subject of doing keto with me a few months ago. He has a massive sweet tooth and the thought of giving up his after-dinner treats didn’t sit well with him. A client of mine in the US suggested I try Swerve® as a sugar replacement in my cooking and baking and I was delighted to find it had no strange after-taste. Now, I will only use Erythritol. When Funnyman tried my lollies, it gave him the push to do keto with me. Of course, I had to become a lolly-making machine because he happily enjoys one of these almost every night. He is down almost 10kg (22lb) now and counting…
