Keto Chocolate Ice Cream

Keto Chocolate Ice Cream recipe & content provided by Jennifer Winder

Best keto ice cream on the planet?

The problem with most traditional ice cream recipes is the high sugar content. That problem is solved by substituting out the high glycemic sugar content with BochaSweet.

This chocolate ice cream gets not only a keto upgrade but the sweetness you crave. Healthy fats like egg yolks and cocoa powder blended into a creamy, delicious ice cream so satisfying you won’t recognize the difference from traditional ice cream.

Thanks to our friend Jennifer Winder for this awesome keto recipe!

Keto Chocolate Ice Cream

Keto Chocolate Ice Cream

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup BochaSweet

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat heavy whipping cream and vanilla to hot but not boiling (about 120 degrees if you use a thermometer).
  2. Remove from heat and whisk in unsweetened cocoa powder. Let stand for a few minutes to cool a bit.
  3. With a stand mixer whip egg yolks and sweetener until pale yellow.
  4. Leave stand mixer on medium and very slowly add the hot egg mixture (drizzle). If you add it too fast you will make scrambled eggs. Once everything is mixed together, pour back into the pot.
  5. Place pot over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken and remove from stove (it should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon).
  6. Cool completely before pouring into your ice cream maker. Follow the ice cream mixer directions.

NOTE: If you want ice cream quickly you can cool the hot mixture using an ice bath. If you want to make ahead and store in the refrigerator, make sure you touch the surface of the custard mixture with plastic wrap so that a thin rubbery layer does not form.

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
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 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.
Making The Cheesecake
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Make sure all of your ingredients are warmed!
  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.
  6. Turn off the oven and allow to set for 4 hours or overnight.
  7. Remove your baked cheesecake from the oven and allow to cool completely before placing it in the refrigerator.
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!

Make the batter for the cinnamon rolls:
  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine eggs, avocado oil, heavy whipping cream and whisk together.
  2. Add salt, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla and BochaSweet and whisk until combined.
  3. Finally, whisk in the almond flour. Whisk until the batter isn’t lumpy.
  4. Using a scoop or small measuring cup, scoop the batter into the muffin tins on top of the caramel sauce–divide the batter equally between the 12 tins.
  5. Place filled muffin tin in preheated oven (350 degrees/325 degrees if convection) for 14 minutes or until muffins are set up in the middle.
  6. Once done, remove from oven and immediately invert onto a cookie sheet. See the video for a demonstration. The caramel sauce will be on top and you’ll have delicious caramel sticky buns!

Beetroot

Bocha-Beets blog image

 

It has arrived…the only pre-workout, 50:1 beet root extract on the market sweetened with 100% kabocha extract. Typically many pre-workouts out on the market leave a BITTER or FUNKY aftertaste because they need the artificial flavors, artificial colors, additives, and bitter sweeteners to mask the unappealing taste. That all ends now that there is BOCHA-BEETS. A pre-workout drink that tastes great while boosting nitric oxide!

WHAT IS BOCHA-BEETS PRE-WORKOUT ALL ABOUT?

Male bodybuilder

In each scoop of BOCHA-BEETS you will find an enhanced blend of vitamins, amino acids, and electrolytes to help with maximum endurance and increased nitric oxide production. BOCHA-BEETS contains very little glycemic index which results in a keto-friendly and diabetic-friendly product that is 5x more potent in nitrates than leading brands.

Nitric Oxide Boosting Ingredients

Beetroot is a unique superfood which contains a high concentration of nitrates which dilate blood vessels for enhanced oxygen-carrying capacity of blood. This is beneficial for building muscle and recovery with 750mg BCAAs, 350mg Arginine, 2g Citrulline Malate, and 1.5g Betaine Anhydrous for a supreme nitric oxide performance booster.

Branched Chain Amino Acids are comprised of three amino acids: L-leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine. These are found in a variety of proteins sources and help in protein synthesis and muscle growth.

L-Arginine is an amino acid found in seafood, pumpkin seeds, spirulina, and chickpeas. It help to support vasodilation within the blood vessels for better overall blood flow.

Citrulline Malate is a non-protein amino acid found abundantly in watermelon rinds, this natural substance found in many fruits helps to increase aerobic energy production, enhanced blood flow, and better physical performance.

Betaine Anhydrous is a compound found in beet root also known as trimethylglycine that helps to boost muscle strength and endurance.

BOCHA-BEETS also contain Vitamin B12 and Vitamin B6 for energy metabolism. To finish off, a blend of electrolytes are added to help support electrolyte balance prior to physical exercise.

HOW TO USE BOCHA-BEETS

Beet juice

 

There are two options to go when it comes with using BOCHA-BEETS. Our suggestion is to start off with one scoop for supporting cardiovascular health. Easily mix with 6 ounces of water, juice, or smoothie once daily. The other option is to mix two scoops with 14 ounces of water 15-30 minutes prior to exercise to help support exercise stamina and performance.

Also great for athletes to support endurance and extend exercise tolerance.

WHAT’S THE BREAKDOWN?

L-Citrulline + L-Arginine: For Nitric Oxide Production

The combination of Arginine and Citrulline Malate work together to produce nitric oxide which enhances blood flow resulting in better performance.

An increase in energy efficiency from Citrulline Malate enables you to work out harder and longer reducing the time to exhaustion. It is  actually created in the body by one of two ways, either recycled from arginine (arginine converts to nitric oxide to produce citrulline) or from nitrogen.

For exercise, citrulline is definitely something you want to be taking to increase the rate of recovery after exercise [1] and for nitric oxide synthesis [2].

In two scoops you got yourself 2g of Citrulline Malate and 350 mg of Arginine to help assist in the vasodilation of the blood vessels for that sought after “muscle pump”.

Bocha Beets Supplement Facts

Betaine Anhydrous: For Muscle Strength and Endurance

In two scoops of BOCHA-BEETS there is 1.5g of Betaine Anhydrous. Betaine is gaining increasing popularity among pre-workout formulas and is an important component of beetroot.

TMG (trimethylglycine) is essentially glycine with three methyl gr0ups attached. This nutrient have been reported in studies to help improve muscle strength and endurance [3][4]. Betaine also can synthesize creatine in skeletal muscle, lower plasma homocysteine concentrations, reduce inflammation, and help support healthy cardiovascular health. [5]

For a supercharged workout, you want to have betaine to help aid in pushing through those tough final repetitions.

BCAAs 2:1:1 (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine)

BCAAs are well known to help promote protein synthesis and naturally available in protein sources. From a bodybuilding perspective, BCAAs help to enhance muscle growth.

BOCHA-BEETS adds 750mg of BCAAs in a total two scoops. These are plant-based derived and 100% vegan.

In a study, [6] “BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), particularly leucine, have anabolic effects on protein metabolism by increasing the rate of protein snythesis and decreasing the rate of protein degradation in resting human muscle. Also, during recovery from endurance exercise, BCAAs were found to have anabolic effects in human muscle.”

Vitamin B-12 (Methylcobalamin)

Vitamin B-12 is added to the formulation in its “methyl” form for superior bioavailability. Vitamin B-12 helps to support enzymes in DNA synthesis and energy metabolism.

This nutrient is often times found to be deficient for many people and hard to obtain sometimes through diet alone. A deficiency in Vitamin B-12 predisposes someone to neurological disorders and a form of anaemia (macrocytic).

BOCHA-BEETS contains 50mcg per 2 scoops to help combat the deficiency that can be seen among older individuals [7].

Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine HCL)

BOCHA-BEETS contains 5mg of Vitamin B-6 as Pyridoxine HCL. Vitamin B-6 is an essential vitamin that helps to maintain a healthy nervous system along with key metabolic processes. This means it is responsible for the communication between the brain and the nerve cells, which also aids in production of neurotransmitters.

Electrolytes

Electrolytes are key for optimal levels of hydration. By providing the body with adequate electrolytes prior to exercise it negates the drop in performance due to low mineral levels [8].

We made sure to add 50mg of Magnesium, 150mg of Potassium, and 50mg of Sodium. Many of us know how critical electrolytes are for our health.

BOCHA-BEETS Summary

BOCHA-BEETS is a synergistic blend of natural nitric oxide boosting ingredients which provide a true energy boost, enhanced blood flow, maximum endurance, and activates performance. By consuming a high potency nitrate beet root powder you will not only improve nitric oxide levels but also boost energy during exercise.

The unique thing about BOCHA-BEETS is the expected sweetness you desire from our BochaSweet™ 100% kabocha extract: there is no need for additives, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, or added stimulants.

BochaSweet Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is inspired by nostalgic store sold cookie dough and utilizes all-purpose flour for those who can tolerate gluten. If you are gluten-free feel free to substitute with a different type of flour of your liking. Chocolate chip cookies go great with a glass of milk or if you prefer dairy-free, may I suggest a glass of almond milk.

What’s even more awesome about these delicious cookies is that they only take 10 minutes to bake in the oven. And if you make extra you can refrigerate or freeze the dough to save for later use. Enjoy!
