Low-carb Chocolate Mug Cakes

Chocolate Mug Cakes

Dreamy, chocolate mug cakes that take just a few minutes to throw together. It took several trials to achieve this great texture, and they are best eaten warm with a dollop of extra cream. The recipe makes two, so you can tuck into them with your loved one as a dessert or a sweet breakfast.

Tart Berry Yogurt Lollies (Low-carb)

Yes, I am still churning out the lollies for Funnyman, but the look on his face when he sees a batch in the freezer is worth the time spent making them – which happens to be only 5 minutes! Here, I mashed up raspberries and cooked them down a little with some lemon juice bringing a sharp tart flavour. A quick mix with powdered Erythritol (my favourite brand is Swerve®), full-fat yogurt and some double cream and we had another winner! If you like the idea of frozen yogurt & cream lollies, check out the M&L Desserts page, as there are several other great flavours.

Mixed Berry Coconut Crumble (Keto)

A lovely, keto-friendly warm dessert to enjoy alongside pouring cream or my Keto Coconut 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 10 years later! My version of keto cookies are chewier than I remember theirs being, but just as fab.

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 is mainly due to artificial sweeteners which not everyone has a taste for). 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…)

Homemade Keto Coconut Ice Cream

If you are ambitious enough to own an ice-cream maker (I invested in this one), this Keto Coconut Ice cream should definitely be your first attempt. I struggle to find coconut cream at most stores (although ASDA sometimes has Blue Dragon brand – which is what I used). “Creamed coconut” or “coconut blocks” did not work for me, so I highly encourage you to source the Blue Dragon Coconut Cream. For your benefit, here is the link to get it online. I also toasted the desiccated coconut to add to the mixture before churning to make it even more coconutty. Get churning!

Keto Raspberry Rose Water 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 rose water 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!
