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.
These beautiful crunchy crackers are the perfect partner to a big glass of good red wine, plus paté or a cheeseboard, at Christmas (or at any other time for that matter). Made with just 5 ingredients, they are low-carb, keto, vegetarian and free of wheat, gluten, sugar and artificial sweeteners. But you absolutely won't know from the taste that they are so virtuous, and non-low-carbers will love them too!
Also just as fantastic when made with butternut squash, this pumpkin soup is thick, velvety, piquant, slightly sweet, and hugely hugely comforting. It's great as a meal in itself on a cold day, or as a sumptuous dinner-party starter. It's lower-carb, gluten and sugar-free, and can be adapted to be vegetarian and vegan. Enjoy!
It's official, you don't have to give up pizza if you're cutting down on carbs! This highly-versatile, low-carb/keto and gluten-free crust recipe can be used as a base for both pizza and garlic bread. It's a miniscule 3g of carbs per serving, saving you at least 84g. And what it's made of might surprise you!
