Who doesn't love a delectable, creamy French pastry? I know I do! And I've been craving one. So I came up with this recipe for Low-Carb Mille Feuilles! It uses fat head dough instead of puff pastry. And for the filling, I've used whipped sweetened cream. Or you can mix it up by using instead my crème anglaise (from my recipe for Low-Carb Summer Berry Crème Anglaise Tarts). Only 3.8g net carbs per slice, these save you a massive 57g over a high-carb version.

On a low-carb diet? Well you absolutely don't need to skimp on some indulgence. This luscious blueberry cheesecake saves you 53g of sugar and 200kcal a slice over regular cheesecake, without losing any of the flavour. Tasting just as good, if not better, than a high-sugar version, it's low-carb, vegetarian, and free of gluten, added sugar and artificial sweeteners.
Right, no frills with this one - it's Christmas Eve, so I'm running out of time, and so are you! But I am sooooo pleased with this. After some experimentation, this is my very own recipe for buttery, rich, low-carb rum or brandy sauce and it is absolutely AMAZING!!! And with just 5 ingredients, it takes literally 5 minutes to whip up from scratch. Free of sugar and artificial sweeteners, it's fantastic on my low-carb Christmas pudding!
