Keto Vanilla Ice Cream

Keto Vanilla Ice Cream recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

Creating the perfect Keto Ice Cream is a project I’ve been researching for awhile. The end result of this recipe is a Keto Ice Cream that comes out in a soft-serve consistency. Freezing it for a few hours firms it up nicely. The best part is, it’s scoopable like a traditional hard ice cream the next day!

The secret? It’s in the gelatin and the BochaSweet. Both of these work together to create the perfect ice cream! Substitute at your own risk. The first few Keto Ice Cream Recipes I looked at used raw eggs. I knew my kids would be eating this and wasn’t thrilled about feeding them raw eggs in this quantity.

So, I pulled on my past homemade ice cream making knowledge and went ahead and cooked the entire mixture. I was a little worried about using the whole egg–but figured it was worth a shot! The gelatin is an additive that helps the ice cream be scoopable a day or two later.

If you plan on your family and friends eating the entire batch when it’s made–you could omit this without any worry.

Keto Vanilla Ice Cream

This keto vanilla ice cream recipe results in a creamy, satisfying ice cream that’s perfect for a low carb, high fat diet! Even better, it freezes up to be scoopable in the following days because of the gelatin and BochaSweet. Plus, this keto ice cream recipe is cooked and does not have raw eggs in it. A bonus when you’re feeding a family or prefer to avoid raw eggs.

Course: Dessert, Keto
Cuisine: Keto
INGREDIENTS:
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon gelatin
  • 2 cups unsweetened unflavored almond milk
  • 3/4 cups BochaSweet
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a medium sized sauce pan with NO heat, combine eggs, almond milk, heavy cream, BochaSweet, salt and gelatin. Whisk together.
  2. Prepare your mesh strainer, a bowl of ice and a bowl that will sit inside the bowl of ice. Place these items beside your cooking area.
  3. Now it’s time to turn on the heat!! Whisking constantly, turn your stove onto low heat. Gradually increase the heat to medium until your mixture reaches a minimum of 160 degrees. Stir constantly.
  4. If you don’t have a thermometer to measure the temperature, watch the video to see what the consistency looks like when the mixture reaches approximately 160 degrees. Our goal here is to cook the eggs so they aren’t raw.
  5. Once your mixture is cooked. Working quickly, pour your cooked mixture through the mesh sieve into the bowl underneath.
  6. Cover and refrigerate mixture until thoroughly chilled. This takes from 2-4 hours.
  7. Once chilled, mix vanilla into the ice cream mixture.
  8. Freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  9. For a firmer ice cream, pour into a container and seal tightly. Freeze for 2-4 hours prior to serving! The gelatin in the ice cream helps this ice cream scoop up well even the next day or two.

Keto Coconut Bonbons

Keto Coconut Bonbons recipe provided by Amanda Hokanson

These keto coconut bonbons are bursting with sweetness from a fusion of coconut, chocolate, and our BochaSweet zero calorie sweetener. To top it off, a dark chocolate glaze is melted on top and encrusted with chopped almonds.

Coconut bonbons are quite easy to make: You only need a saucepot and silicone ice cube molds to prepare them. With only a few simple steps you will have these ready in no time (around 20 minutes).

Not only are these delicious coconut bonbons low carb, but they’re also gluten free, sugar free, and contain no added high glycemic ingredients. After trying these coconut bonbons, you will be quite surprised that they are not sweetened with cane sugar!

Keto Coconut Bonbons

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can (13.5 fl.oz.) full fat coconut milk
  • 9 ounces dark chocolate to 1 tablespoon coconut oil (to preference)
  • Chopped almonds (to preference)
  • 1/2 cup BochaSweet 
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3/4 cup fine unsweetened dried coconut flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine sweetener with coconut milk in a heavy bottom saucepot and heat over medium to boiling while whisking occasionally.
  2. Keep at a soft boil–whisking constantly–for 10 minutes allowing to reduce until slight syrupy in consistency. Add in butter, coconut flakes, and extracts.
  3. Allow to cool slightly and fill molds–we used silicone ice cube molds. Place in freezer at least 4 hours (better overnight for chocolate dipping). We dipped these in dark chocolate that we melted with some coconut oil and encrusted with roasted, salted chopped almonds. 9 ounces chocolate to 1 tablespoon oil.
  4. Store them in the freezer and let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before eating.
  5. They are an explosion of coconut in your mouth.

INGREDIENTS:

Crust:

  • 4 tablespoons BochaSweet 
  • 1/2 cup roasted, salted pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 3 tablespoons shelled hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1  cup + 2 tablespoons almond meal or flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)

Peanut Butter Filling:

  • 4 tablespoons BochaSweet
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar of natural, unsweetened peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons powdered peanut butter
  • 1/3 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Chocolate Ganache Topping:

  • 1 cup BochaSweet
  • 4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 4 fl. ounces heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (salted works too), softened

DIRECTIONS:

For crust:

  1. Place the rack in the middle of the oven, preheat to 350F, and line a 10 x 15 inch rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Measure the ingredients and add into the bowl of a food processor.
  3. Mix and pulse and scrape and mix and pulse and scrape some more until it comes it starts to come together in a large crumbly mixture. Press this mixture into the bottom of the baking sheet getting it as even as possible. This mixture will just cover the bottom of the pan–you may be left with a few small voids but these will fill in.
  4. Bake for 10 min, rotating pan halfway through.
  5. Allow to cool on rack for 5 minutes then use something flat to compress the crust into the pan (it will have puffed up a bit). Set aside while you prepare the peanut butter layer.

For peanut butter filling:

  1. Combine all ingredients together with a stand or hand mixer.
  2. Press over the crust (a rolling pin comes in handy) to help get it flat and even.
  3. Place the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes (I use this time to clean up the kitchen) and then start the chocolate ganache topping.

For chocolate ganache topping:

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Heat 30 seconds at a time in the microwave, whisking frequently, until it is hot enough for the chocolate to finish melting (mine takes less than 2 minutes. Stir gently until it is thoroughly combined and glossy. Whisk in the butter and continue to stir until it is slightly cool.
  2. Remove crust and peanut butter layer from the freezer and pour the chocolate over the top. Use an offset spatula or butter knife to smooth out the chocolate.
  3. Place in fridge and allow to set for at least 2 hours.
  4. Use the aluminum foil to remove from pan and use a hot knife to cut into squares (wiping the blade frequently). I cut them into pretty small squares; they are rich and calorific. Store in refrigerator. Allow to come to room temperature for 5 minutes before consuming–although I happen to like them cold!

Do you love coffee?? Silly of me to ask since you’re reading this blog post! We love coffee–a nice rich, steaming cup of coffee first thing in the morning is just the thing to get the day started right.

So–of course–I had to create a Keto Coffee Creamer with a delicious vanilla flavor! Even better…It’s fast and easy to make. I mix this up in a mason jar and slap a lid on it and then enjoy it throughout the week.

The perfect keto vanilla coffee creamer should be rich, thick and oozing with vanilla flavor.

Keto Coconut Cheesecake

Keto Coconut Cheesecake recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

What in the world am I going to use for a keto cheesecake crust? That was the first question I asked myself when getting ready to create a Keto Cheesecake. Then I thought about coconut! We LOVE coconut around here!

This crust uses shredded unsweetened coconut and coconut oil. Make sure you allow enough time for the crust to cool while making this. Now that we have the crust down, it’s time to tackle the filling! I found that using a water bath provided consistent, creamy results.

It’s well worth the extra time of wrapping the pan and setting up a water bath!

If you haven’t already tried BochaSweet, I highly recommend you do. It’s a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the kabocha pumpkin. Daily consumption of BochaSweet may help to support healthy blood sugar levels. Unlike many other artificial or alternative sweeteners on the market, BochaSweet won’t spike your blood glucose!

Even better–it tastes amazing. So amazing, I give friends a spoonful to taste when they come over.

Keto Coconut Cheesecake

Keto Coconut Cheesecake

 

INGREDIENTS:

To Make Crust

  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted 100 g
  • 2  cups unsweetened coconut shredded
  • 2 tablespoons BochaSweet

To Make Cheesecake

  • 4 packages cream cheese (8 ounces)
  • 1 1/4 cup BochaSweet

  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:

Making The Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 convection).
  2. Prepare a springform pan by lining it with parchment paper. This makes removing the cheesecake from the springform pan a breeze!
  3. Combine melted coconut oil, shredded unsweetened coconut and BochaSweet and stir until completely mixed.
  4. Press into a parchment paper lined springform pan paying special attention to the edges. Once pressed in, bake in a 350 degree (325 for convection) oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove and allow to cool while making your cheesecake.

  2. Prepare your springform pan for a water bath. See the video and instructions on the blog post.
  3. Combine cream cheese and BochaSweet and mix on low until smooth. If your mixture is lumpy, this means your cream cheese isn’t warm enough. Warm it now before proceeding further. Also, make sure your other ingredients are warm. See the blog post for tips.
  4. Add eggs, heavy cream, sour cream, vanilla, salt and almond extract to the cream cheese mixture. Mix on low until smooth.
  5. Bake in a water bath for 60 minutes at 300 degrees. The water bath creates creamy, amazing results and is well worth the extra effort.

Keto Caramel Sticky Buns
, , ,

Keto Caramel Sticky Buns recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

These low carb sticky buns use almond flour for the keto flour. The caramel sauce is made possible by my favorite sugar substitute, BochaSweet as well as just a hint of molasses for that brown sugar flavor we associate with caramel!

I recommend that you do not use cupcake liners or any liner in this recipe because it would make inverting the finished rolls difficult. Grease your muffin tins with coconut oil and they will slide right out and not leave a big clean-up job behind!

These should freeze very well. I didn’t get a chance to freeze any of these because they were quickly consumed by my family!

My absolute favorite dessert on the planet is a cheesecake with lemon curd on top! As soon as I mastered my Keto Cheesecake, I knew Keto Lemon Curd was my next challenge!

I really like a tart lemon curd and to get the perfect tart flavor, I used Lemon Vitality Essential Oil by Young Living.

Coconut Powered Pancakes
, ,

Coconut flour is a popular choice for people following a ket diet but often it’s very difficult to get the right texture or taste. These coconut powered pancakes have a delicious, moist texture that will make your taste buds explode. Especially, when served with our keto-friendly DIY BochaSweet™ maple syrup.

A distinct variation to many typical recipes you will find is the addition of coconut yogurt to add a clean, dairy-free source of probiotics. Plus, these pancakes are packed with collagen protein and MCTs for sustained energy and gut health. Make sure to use an eco-friendly non-stick pan to easily flip these pancakes after a few minutes on each side.
