Dear Health-Conscious Dessert Lover,
It means getting smart about the ingredients you use. Krista Van Houten says: Moist vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream… warm pumpkin pie… crème brulée … carrot cake with cream cheese frosting… fresh brownies… Or just imagine the smell of freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies wafting from your kitchen… Just thinking about these decadent creations makes your mouth water and few of us have the willpower to resist. And for those of us who enjoy baking at home, the options were just as limited. You can use the refined coconut oil for no coconut flavor. ClickBank is the retailer of products on this site. Thanks for sharing too.
Sugalight – Sinful Ice Cream Made Guilt-Free
Melt in your mouth deliciousness!! When you need a quick boost of energy and you head to the refrigerator for something to pop in your mouth. No time to cook anything, just-need-a-little-something-to-get-you-through type of thing.
The flavor alone is incredible, but the health benefits are a sweet bonus! How do you make them? Whisk the ingredients together. Pour into molds and freeze. I made one batch with softened coconut oil, and another with it fully melted and they work either way. BUT the softened version freezes quicker, so you get to eat them sooner. Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. MUST be kept refrigerated or frozen. Melts at room temp. Store tightly wrapped for about weeks. If frozen, set at room temp for a few minutes to soften.
My husband is on keto but does not like EV coconut oil because of the coconut flavor. Is the coconut flavor detectable in this recipe? I use organic expeller pressed coconut oil for most cooking since there is no coconut flavor or aroma.
I also use NOW brand stevia glycerite which is like a syrup. I am excited to try this recipe! Thank you so much! You can use the refined coconut oil for no coconut flavor.
I have not tried that brand of stevia, but it should work. The Sweet Leaf adds extra vanilla flavor. Let me know how it turns out! Thank you for your prompt reply. I love coconut too so maybe I will use the EV so I will get more of the caramels!
We have a cashew allergy in our family…any thoughts on what this would be like if made with peanut butter? These are so yummy and help me with a candy craving when I get one. So happy to hear that, Mandy! These are my current favorite too! I used Swerve as the sweetener what I had but that was my only change.
Just put a double batch in the fridge. I licked the bowl, the spatula, the drops on the counter! This recipe may be too good…. Sounds like you liked them as much as I do! Thanks for this terrific recipe. Do you happen to know how many net carbs per serving? My Mom asked me to buy the sweetener and mold for her on Amazon so she can make them too. Can anyone post them here for me please? Calorie information I ended up putting in a bit more salt just so you know it could be more or less for you.
I just made these with my grandkids. They were so easy and yummy. Moist vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream… warm pumpkin pie… crème brulée … carrot cake with cream cheese frosting… fresh brownies…. Or just imagine the smell of freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies wafting from your kitchen…. Just thinking about these decadent creations makes your mouth water and few of us have the willpower to resist. But we often feel guilty for indulging in sweet treats. After all, most desserts are filled with sugar, refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats, and they pack more calories than the meal itself!
But what if you could…. Without a care as to how it might affect your waistline or your health? For the longest time, there have been very few truly healthy dessert options. And for those of us who enjoy baking at home, the options were just as limited. There were simply no recipes or guidebooks for creating divinely delicious desserts with all-natural, low glycemic ingredients. But you can feel good about making and enjoying these sweet treats.
Because not only do they come without the sugar, carbs and consequences you wish to avoid… but they have health benefits to boot! You can also enjoy the toasty, fluffy and flaky goodness of breads… crackers… pizza crust… biscuits… bagels and more… without the carbs and health-harming effects of grains! For more than 10 years, Healing Gourmet has provided life-saving education to our readers about the benefits of a natural diet… and the proven power of foods and nutrients to promote health and protect against disease.
And we have received hundreds of positive testimonials like this one from Deborah in Scottsdale, AZ who says:. You have been very helpful for me in making healthy choices. Best of all, I have lost about 50 pounds! These desserts had to be truly healthy. And we refused to settle for anything less than extraordinary taste. We began our mission by collecting dozens of the most decadent dessert recipes we could find, including all the favorites… from brownies to pumpkin pie… carrot cake, custards and soufflés… ice cream… cookies, macaroons and more!
The first step was to remove every ingredient from these recipes that was unnatural or refined, as well as anything that would spike your blood sugar or cause your body to store fat. Then we substituted these items with proteins, healthy fats and fiber. They promote the feeling of fullness.
And for the last several years, we have been firing up the ovens in our test kitchen, testing dozens of these all-natural ingredients in over 50 different dessert recipes.
We constantly tweaked the ingredients and proportions until we had replaced the sugar and flour in these classic desserts. We gave each one a total health makeover, while keeping all the moisture, taste and decadent sweetness! Please allow me to introduce….
Just imagine biting into a luxuriously rich, sweet chocolate cake that serving for serving provides more fiber than whole grain cereal, more protein than chicken, less sugar than an apple and fewer calories than a serving of yogurt. Or how would you like to promote lean, sexy muscle growth… as you snack on a Lemon-Ricotta Soufflé with 10 grams protein and only 1 gram of sugar!
Here is just a small sample of the desserts you can easily create in just minutes with your copy of Guilt-Free Desserts…. Or how about these gourmet delights….
And of course, each recipe also comes with time-saving tips, nutritional information and your estimated preparation time. You will be delighted by just how delicious and healthy these recipes can be and how easy they are to make, but…. Guilt-Free Desserts includes everything you need to know about the latest baking ingredients and how to use these inexpensive and readily-available products in your own kitchen.
It can also add bulk and moisture. It helps caramelize desserts. And it can also provide a crisp texture or crunch factor. And grains also contain gluten — an allergenic protein that causes health issues for many people.
