KETO RECIPE: STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE MOUSSE

I love this super easy dessert that any dairy eating, cheesecake loving person will devour! It takes 5 minutes to make and can easily be customized to include your favorite flavors! 

This is one of my favorite recipes from my cookbook, The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.

KETO RECIPE: STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE MOUSSE by Jen Fisch via Keto In The City

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ounces of Cream Cheese 
  • 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream
    •  This can be unsweetened full fat Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, or Heavy Whipping Cream.  Whatever you have in the house is fine! Today I used Califia Farms Coconut Almond Milk, but usually I use Heavy Whipping Cream. 
  • 1 scoop of Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder 
    • This ingredient is optional, but justs boosts up the healthy fats even more and is flavorless. 
  • 1 teaspoon of Swerve natural sweetener or 1 drop of liquid stevia
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Strawberries
    • You could also use a handful of blackberries or raspberries instead
The first 5 ingredients in the food processor. Strawberries get incorporated in the next step.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Break up the cream cheese block into smaller pieces so that it is evenly distributed around the blade. Add the cream, sweetener, vanilla, and MCT Powder. 
  2. Mix together on high. I usually stop and stir twice with a small rubber scraper to make sure everything is mixed well. 
  3. Slice up 4 strawberries and place them in the food processor with the cheesecake mixture. Again mix until combined and use rubber scraper to incorporate everything. 
  4. Divide strawberry cheesecake mixture between 2  vessels.  Then I like to slice up additional strawberries and put them on top.
  5. You can eat this right away or chill it for an hour before eating, it is delicious either way! 

INGREDIENT TIP- Set the cream cheese out on the counter for 20 minutes or so working with it. If the mixture still seems thick, mix in a little more cream to help it incorporate. 

You can customize this dessert in so many ways! I have added lemon zest in the past for nice freshness!

KETO RECIPE: Peaches & Cream Perfect Keto Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup

You're probably reading the title of this recipe and wondering how on earth anything with peaches could be keto...

 

The secret is Perfect Keto's Peaches & Cream  Base. I simply added it to my Keto Pancake/Waffle batter! It was super easy and definitely added a nice, subtle, sweet flavor while also giving us the added benefit of exogenous ketones

 

Perfect Keto Base is effective at raising blood ketone levels (up to 1.5 mmol) and can be used in the following ways: 

  • First thing in the morning fasted for mental performance (I add Perfect Keto's Chocolate Sea Salt Base in coffee, easy peasy)

  • Between meals for extra fat burning

  • Before exercise for better energy production

  • After eating a higher carb meal to get back in ketosis

 

Now back to Pancakes! 

To start I used my original Cream Cheese & Coconut Flour pancake/waffle recipe. It is also featured in my cookbook THE 5-INGREDIENT KETOGENIC DIET COOKBOOK now available on Amazon. 

 

For this batch, I added the following: 

Perfect Keto Base comes in 4 different flavors: Peaches and Cream. Chocolate Sea Salt, Coffee, and Vanilla. They also sell Keto Collagen which is featured in a number of recipes in my cookbook including one of my favorites, Fudge Ice Pops.

Step 1: 3lbs of halved Brussels sprouts, 3 shallots sliced thin, olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 425 for 15 minutes, stir halfway through.

KETO PUMPKIN RECIPES! PERFECT FOR FALL!

Fall means pumpkin flavors, cool weather, and cozy clothes... unless you live in Los Angeles like I do- then fall means heatwaves and lots of sunshine! But I can still eat keto friendly fall recipes and pretend right?!? So here are a few of my fall favorites using pumpkin. 

 

During this time of year I purchase the Trader Joe's brand of pumpkin, they only carry it seasonally. During the rest of the year I buy the Target brand (Market Pantry), because they seem to always have it.

TIP! You want to make sure you are buying pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling, which is loaded with sugar and carbs.

KETO RECIPE: Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Mmmmmmmmm Peanut Butter + Chocolate is always a winner!

KETO RECIPE: CHOCOLATE CHIP PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES by Jen Fisch via Keto In The City

Typically I am not a big peanut butter person, but every once and awhile I get a craving for it and when I do I make these cookies! They are SO EASY and they're really delicious, I've even tasted them on my non-keto friends and they like them too! 

I love them with and without chocolate chips, so I always make 1/2 a batch of each. The peanut butter, Swerve and egg are things I always have in my house. The chocolate chips I try to pick up everytime I go to Whole Foods, which is the only grocery store I am always able to find them at. 

 

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup of chunky peanut butter
    • You could use creamy, but I wouldn't, the chunky adds a lot of great texture to the cookies!
  • 1/2 cup of sweetener (I use Swerve or Xyla
  • 1 egg (Vital Farms)
  • 1/4 cup of Lily's Chocolate Chips

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Add the peanut butter, sweetener and the egg to a bowl.
  3. Mix completely, I use hand mixer. 
  4. Roll 1/2 the batter into 6-7 balls and place on cookie sheet.
  5. Add the chocolate chips to the rest of the batter and stir to combine. 
  6. Roll that half of the batter into 6-7 balls and place on cookie sheet.
  7. Press down on each ball with a fork to make a cross pattern.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until nice and brown.
 

IMPORTANT TIP ON COOLING!

Cookies cooling on the cookie sheet.

Cookies cooling on the cookie sheet.

DO NOT try to transfer these cookies right after pulling them out of the oven, they need to cool or they will crumble. So leave them on the cookie sheet for about 20 minutes. 

 

Then I carefully move them onto a plate with a spatula and place the plate in the fridge for another 20 minutes before eating. 

A batch of peanut butter cookies calculates to about 35g of net carbs for the whole batch (measure you own since every peanut butter is slightly different). Divided by 14, that makes each cookie 2.5 net carbs. 

The chocolate chip peanut butter cookies are 44 net carbs for the whole batch, so divided by 14 that is 3 net carbs.

I've been a fan of Keto Kookie since they started, so I was super excited to meet up with Kris, one of their founders, and get to try their newest flavors Peanut Butter and Birthday Cake! 

 

We met up at the Bulletproof Coffee shop in downtown LA and the combination of butter coffee and keto friendly cookies was basically heaven. Both flavors are so delicious! The Peanut Butter Keto Kookie is rich and creamy, everything you would want in a peanut butter cookie. The Birthday Cake Keto Kookie had a great texture from the coconut and definitely tasted like birthday cake!
