Well good morning fine folks!
Well, it’s day three of back on the wagon and the sugar cravings are torture.
I broke down last night and made some ice cream — but I ketofied it.
I partially stole it from THIS recipe.
Essentially, this is a fat bomb in ice cream form.
Hokay! This is what I had:
- 16 oz cream cheese
- 1 cup heavy cream
- about cup of stevia (in whatever form you prefer; I use the Truvia Baking Blend. I know it has a minute amount of sugar in it to make it “bakeable”, but it’s the only one I’ve found that doesn’t taste like death and chemicals). Half of that will go to the strawberry mix and the other to the cream cheese mix.
- Stick of butter
- Vanilla extract or sugar free syrup
- 1/2 cup Almond Milk
- Bag of frozen strawberries — the amount varies depending on how much strawberry you want. One large strawberry is one net carb, so that’s something to take into consideration.
And this is what I did:
I put my 16oz of cream cheese in a large mixing bowl, added the heavy cream, and started to blend it together with my hand mixer. I softened the stick of butter in the nuker and mixed that in too. Half a cup of stevia. It started to get really thick, so I added the almond milk to thin it out to the right consistency. Also add your vanilla — enough so it “tastes right”.
Also in the nuker, I thawed out my strawberries and softened them up — roughly 4 minutes on high. I also put the other half cup of stevia in there to sweeten it up.
Then I mixed the two together and threw it into the freezer in a large plastic bowl.
I had more cream cheese mix than would fit in the bowl, so I made a smaller bowl of the ice cream, but instead of strawberries, I used natural peanut butter (not necessarily keto, but in moderation it’s good).
Also, since I’m in a sharing mood — bacon wrapped stuffed chicken thighs. I’m in love with the deboned/skinned chicken thighs because they roll up really nicely. So far I’ve stuffed spinach in there, mushrooms, muenster, and other savory stuff.
For lunch today, I stuffed tupperwear bowl full of spinach, green olives, half a roma tomato, some cracked pepper lunch meat, and two slices of pepper jack.
Also BPC… because that stuff is liquid golden loving energy energy.
