Tart Berry Yogurt Lollies

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

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

Creamy, Sweet Keto Fat Pots

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!

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 block” did not work for me, so I highly encourage you to source the Blue Dragon Coconut Cream which is what I used. For your benefit, here is the link to get it online. I toasted the desiccated coconut to add to the mixture before churning to make it even more coconutty. Get churning!

Mini Meringue Bites

Keto Mini Meringues

I made a batch of these to use in a Keto Blueberry Mess I was playing around with one day. They are so delightful and the perfect sweet treat to pop in your mouth when you walk past them. (They lasted about half a day in my house with Funnyman’s sweet tooth!) Add to whipped cream and blueberries and you have yourself a tasty mess..

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!

Best Ever Keto Brownies

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. 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 other sweet treats for him is my way of showing him how much I appreciate him going on this Keto journey with me. For this recipe, I did not use confectioners’ / powdered Erythritol like I do in most of my other baking, instead I used granulated. It’s a good idea to have a bag of each on hand. 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 pours a little cream over them. Happy Husband = Happy Wifey…

Keto Blueberry Lollies

Funnyman wasn’t entirely convinced when I broached the subject of doing keto with me. 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® (a brand that makes confectioner’s / powdered Erythritol) as a sugar replacement in my cooking and baking and I have never looked back. After Funnyman watched the documentary MAGIC PILL in May 2018, he was amped to start. These lollies were actually the first thing I made him. Of course, I then had to become a lolly-making machine because he happily enjoys one of these most nights. He is down almost 12kg / 26.5lb now and counting (read more about our journey here) …
