KETO RECIPE: Keto Blueberry-Blackberry Ice Pops


Keto Blueberry-Blackberry Ice Pops

Blueberries are my favorite fruit, and blackberries are a close second. So I created a creamy, refreshing ice pop using both. The color of these ice pops is gorgeous! These also make yummy fat bombs!

INGREDIENTS

  • 6.5 oz of coconut cream from a can

    • You could also use 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream or 3/4 cup of full fat coconut milk

  • 2 tsp of Swerve or 2 drops of liquid stevia

  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup mixed blueberries and blackberries (fresh or frozen)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a food processor (or blender), mix together the coconut cream, sweetener, and vanilla.

  2. Add the mixed berries, and pulse just a few times so the blueberries retain their texture.

  3. Pour into ice pop molds and freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.

KETO RECIPE: Creamy Slow-Cooker Chicken


Creamy Slow-Cooker Chicken

A creamy slow-cooker meal is perfect for those chilly days. You can make this dish very quickly and then enjoy the aromas for the next 4 hours while it cooks. The fresh spinach added toward the end of the cooking time adds beautiful color and freshness.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp of ghee

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 cup of alfredo sauce

  • 1/4 cup of chopped sun dried tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 2 cups of fresh spinach

  • Pink salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, melt the ghee. Add the chicken and cook, about 4 minutes on each side, until brown.

  2. With the crock insert in place, transfer the chicken to the slow cooker. Set the slow cooker to low.

  3. In a small bowl, mix to combine the Alfredo sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese, and season the pink salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the chicken.

  4. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through.

  5. Add the fresh spinach. Cover and cook for 5 minutes more, until the spinach is slightly wilted, and serve.

Substitution tip: You can replace the chicken with pork chops and follow the same instructions.

KETO RECIPE: Festive Reindeer (and Santa) Pancakes!


KetoReindeerPancakes.jpg

One of my favorite parts about Christmas is making these festive pancakes! I started making them a few years ago and they have now become a family tradition right after we finish opening Santa presents. I make non-keto pancakes for my parents and my keto pancakes for Kaia and I.

I use my Cream Cheese & Coconut Flour Pancake recipe and then let the bacon, berries and whipped cream do the rest of the work!

You can let everyone make their own creations or you can do the honors for everyone, just make sure the pancakes have a little time to cool or your whipped cream will just melt right off!

KETO RECIPE: Mississippi Pot Roast


This is by far one of the easiest dishes to make! I love a slow cooker meal on a busy day. I throw it all in before I go to work and by the time I get home the house smells amazing and the beef shreds in seconds.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2lb Chuck Roast

  • 8oz of butter

  • 1 packet of Dry Ranch Dressing

  • 1 packet of Aus Jus Gravy Mix

  • 1 jar of whole Peperoncini

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put the slow cooker on low.

  2. Season the meat with salt and pepper and place it on the bottom of the slow cooker. 

  3. Pour the packets of dry ranch dressing and gravy mix over the meat. 

  4. Place the sticks of butter on top of the meat and seasoning mixes. 

  5. Add the peperonicinis (I don't add the liquid, just the peppers) all around the butter on top of the meat. There will be plenty of liquid from the meat and the butter, no water or broth is needed. 

  6. Let it cook for 8 hours on low. 

  7. Shred beef with 2 forks.

  8. Place shredded beef and peperoncinis in serving dish. Buttery liquid can be used as a gravy, I pour it into a separate container. 



Mississippi pot roast pairs great with cauliflower rice or mashed cauliflower. Sometimes I also put it inside a low carb tortilla like a Mississippi Pot Roast burrito- it is super messy, but yummy!

Mississippi Pot Roast is also a great potluck dish!

KETO RECIPE: Cozy 5 Ingredient Keto Soups


It is officially soup season!

Not much is better than a cozy bowl of delicious soup. I have a variety of keto friendly soup recipes in my 2 cookbooks. All are super easy and will please the whole family.

BROCCOLI-CHEESE SOUP

A fat-filled combination of butter, broccoli, heavy whipping cream, chicken broth, and cheddar make this soup filling and delicious. Great for a night when you feel like going meatless, but you could also add crumbled bacon on top if you want some added protein. The easy to find ingredients can be kept on hand anytime for a quick dinner. 4g of net carbs per bowl.

Full recipe available in my 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.

TACO SOUP

This soup has a nice kick from taco seasoning and seasoned tomatoes. The base of the soup is rich and creamy with a mixture of ground beef, beef bone broth and and cream cheese. 5g net carbs per bowl.

KETO RECIPE: Cream Cheese & Coconut Flour Pancakes & Waffles

Who doesn't love pancakes and waffles?! I know I do and one of the first keto friendly recipes I experimented with was this one. It's a mixture of eggs, cream cheese, coconut flour and baking powder that makes fluffy, golden pancakes possible on keto.  

TheEasy5IngredientKetogenicDietCookbook.jpg

I used my Cuisinart Pancake Plate today so they were all uniform in size to make cute little pancake stacks. As soon as they come off the griddle I butter them up with Vital Farms Grass-fed and Pasture Raised Butter, my favorite! 

INGREDIENTS

This is two servings and makes 6 pancakes. Just double it, triple it etc... for more people! 

  • 4 pasture raised eggs (I use Vital Farms)

  • 4 oz of softened cream cheese

  • 1 teaspoon of liquid Stevia 

  • 1 tsp of Vanilla extract 

  • 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder

  • 4 tbsp of coconut flour (I used Bob's Red Mill

  • 4 tbsp of butter, divided

  • Sprinkle of cinnamon (I love cinnamon so I am generous) 

DIRECTIONS

  • Put all ingredients in a food processor and mix thoroughly! You could probably also use a bullet or blender. 

  • Heat skillet/griddle to medium high and melt butter on pan 

  • Pour in batter, I made my pancakes about 4" wide

  • They will get puffy when it is time to flip, they won't really get the air bubbles like a typical pancake but they will set. Second side will cook faster. 

  • For waffles, heat your waffle iron, grease it (I use coconut oil spray) and pour in batter
