    Sugar Free strawberry jello with sliced fresh strawberries topped with cool whip!

    ARRGGHH, why use cool whip?? It's not even real food. Use real whip cream and do yourself a service.

    I needed a recipe to use up my plentiful harvest of blueberries but I hate using artificial sweetener. An internet search led me to an almond blueberry cake recipe that doesn't use sweetener - http://girleatsworld.co.uk/keto-cake/. I made it today and tried a slice once cooled - it is amazing. Please DietDoctor can you come up with desserts that don't rely on artificial sweeteners?

    Stevia is a natural sweetener and works wonderful in baking.

    As a British person I would like a low carb recipe for fruit crumble. It's the crumble bit I'm not sure how to substitute as it would be made with flour . Any suggestions ?

    Addy, I use this topping to make various fruit crumbles (frozen berries, granny smith apples, etc.) and it's wonderful.
    1 cup almond flour (I use the type with skin on)
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon coconut oil
    2 tablespoons xylitol

    Hello there, great website!I was wondering why your chocolate mousse has so many carbs? I use a zero carb heavy cream from Aldi, as well as a zero carb chocolate powder. I do not use the eggs, so my dessert should have zero carbs correct?

    Sorry one more question, why do you assess eggs with 1 carb? I checked the back of my eggs and it states zero carbs?

    Hi Eike!

    100 gram egg is about 1/2 gram carbs. That means ... 4 eggs is about 1 gram carbs ... that's negligible.

    Hi Paola!

    We usually say, eat until satisfied, but not more.

    Do you consider Stevia and Erythritol, artificial sweeteners?

    Look under the Recipes tab under bread. Also there is an Oopsie bread in the meals section under BLT.

    Hi DreMation!

    It really doesn't matter. We don't recommend sweeteners, at least not on daily basis.

    Do you consider Stevia and Erythritol, artificial sweeteners?
