If you love ice cream as much as me, but you are both feet in with the high fat/low carb lifestyle: this is for YOU! Such a treat, especially on these sweet summer evenings!
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 1 8oz brick full fat cream cheese
- 1/4 cup grass fed butter
- 1-2 tsp stevia (sweeten to taste)
- 2 Tbsp whipping cream (NOT whipped cream!)
- 1 tsp vanilla
Put all ingredients in food processor and blend on pulse. Do not over blend! This is great with little chunks of strawberries!
Pour mixture into small casserole dish. Spread evenly & freeze until set well (should be abt 2 hours).
Remove from freezer & let sit out to slightly thaw just a couple of minutes before you cut into squares.
Whatever you don’t eat right away needs to go straight back into the freezer…it will melt like ice cream!
We have been thoroughly enjoying eating a high fat, lower protein, low carb diet. I have very little cravings, feel leaner, healthier and have dropped some stubborn pounds! These treats are just some of the amazing things you get to enjoy living this lifestyle!
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (or almond)
- 2 oz DARK chocolate (72% or higher)
- 1 cup butter
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 4 packets stevia
Melt chocolate and butter together in microwave or on the stove. Be sure not to over cook. Once completely melted and mixed well, add stevia and heavy cream. Mix well.
Using a mini cupcake pan, line with mini cupcake liners: cover the bottom of each liner with the chocolate mixture (abt a tsp). Follow with a dollop of peanut butter. Then go back and add one more layer of chocolate. Cupcake liners should be full.
Place the entire tin in the freezer for about 30 minutes to set.
That’s it! Enjoy! Keep the remaining Peanut Butter Cups in the fridge.
We had been following a PALEO diet for quite a while and recently, do to hormone issues, I decided to take it up a notch and go high fat, low carb to test it out. Feeling amazing! I’ve dropped 4 pounds and my husband has dropped several as well. We even just got back from a 5 day vacation and LOST weight! Who does that?!
We love trying new recipes to keep things interesting! This one is SO tasty! I guarantee we’ll be making these a lot ❤️ It’s really easy and you can modify for your own tastes.
- 1/2 cup nut butter of choice
- 8 oz block of cream cheese
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1.5 tsp stevia (add more if you would like this sweeter. I don’t like too much stevia as the taste is a little overwhelming for me)
- Unsweetened, shredded coconut: enough to roll each ball in
Mix all ingredients (aside from coconut). Be sure to mix well! Scoop spoonfuls of dough and roll into balls. Roll each ball in the coconut then freeze 30 minutes to firm up a little. Store in airtight container in fridge or freezer. ENJOY!
I LOVE baking and I LOVE peanut butter cookies! Today was the perfect drizzly Oregon Spring day to get my bake on 🙌🏻 Oh these are SO tasty! Definitely a treat as they do have some sugar…but far healthier than your typical cookie!
1 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
2/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup DARK chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a large bowl mix peanut butter, coconut sugar, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add dry ingredients & mix well. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop cookies by the teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I like using a cookie dough scoop).
Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes and remove when edges barely begin to turn a golden brown.
Makes about 20 cookies
For those of you wanting a delicious, chocolatey, peanut buttery treat that is on the healthier side…here you go!!
*WARNING: these little guys are super CALORIE DENSE and they go down very easy!! So, consider yourself warned! I recommend keeping them in the freezer and allowing yourself one per day.
Also note, you can use whatever kind of nut butter you prefer!
- 1 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup coconut oil 🌴
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/4 cup oats (not instant please!)
- 1/2 cup DARK chocolate (72% or more)
Melt chocolate, coconut oil, peanut butter & honey in medium pan on medium. Stir frequently.
When chocolate is completely melted and all ingredients are mixed well, remove from heat. Stir in vanilla & oatmeal. Mix well.
Drop spoonfuls of batter onto parchment paper or foil. Place in fridge or freezer to set.
Again: these are very calorie dense! Regardless of the healthier ingredients you can very quickly over do it with these scrumptious treats.
Makes about 24, depending on size of spoonfuls of course!
