Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte Ice Cream

Keto Pumpkin spice latte ice cream recipe

🎃🍨 When you start playing around with all different recipes, you can begin to make up your own.  This turned out better than most “regular” ice creams I’ve ever had!  Perfect for pumpkin spice lovers… even those who are not following a ketogenic diet.  I recently purchased the Cuisinart ICE-21 1.5 Quart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream Maker.  It’s much less expensive than many other ice cream makers, but after reading all the reviews, many people preferred it over pricier models.  It’s worked great so far for us.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Set a medium size bowl in the freezer.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine cream, sweetener and coffee over medium heat. Stir until sweetener and coffee dissolve and are heated through – about 2 minutes.
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk egg yolks with maple flavoring, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
  4. Slowly add egg and spice mixture to saucepan of cream and coffee, whisking to combine and heat through – about 90 seconds to 2 minutes.  Take off heat and allow to cool about 2 minutes.
  5. Remove bowl from freezer and pour mixture into bowl. 
  6. Add pumpkin, coconut oil and vanilla and whisk to combine. 
  7. Return bowl to freezer for 20-30 minutes to allow to cool enough to add to ice cream maker.
  8. Pour into the canister of an ice cream maker and churn according to directions. (Mine always churns a little faster than they say it will take, so keep an eye on it.)  Once churned, transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.

    If you’re like my daughter, Olivia and I, you will want to have a bowl straight out of the ice cream maker first!  (Not so pretty… but oh, so delicious!)

Keto Bagel Recipe

Keto Bagel Recipe

🍞🥖One of the biggest things people are concerned about when starting Keto is that they’re going to miss bread.  There are so many different Keto bread recipes…. I absolutely LOVE this bagel recipe.  SUPER Easy and so delicious.  💥Lord! I had one today –  sliced,  and then slathered with Grass Fed Ghee and a little extra Everything But the Bagel Seasoning.  SOOOO Good! And filling!! 

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cup Almond flour

1 tbsp Gluten-free baking powder

2 1/2 Cups Mozzarella cheese (grated)

2 oz Cream Cheese 

2 Large Eggs 

Everything But the Bagel Seasoning or Sesame Seeds (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.   Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

2.  Stir the almond flour and baking powder together and set aside.

3.  Beat the eggs with a fork in a separate small bowl – set aside.

4.  Combine the mozzarella and cream cheese in a large bowl.  Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Stir again at the end until well incorporated.  Or to heat on the stove, use a double boiler over low heat, stirring frequently, until completely melted and easy to stir.
*TIP* Spray your spoon with coconut oil cooking spray to avoid the cheese sticking.

5.   Stir the flour mixture and eggs into the melted cheese.  Work quickly while the cheese is still hot.  Knead with your hands until you have a dough. It will be very sticky, but  knead together until everything is well incorporated.

6.  Divide the dough into 6 parts.  Roll in your hands to get some length with each part, then press the ends together to make a bagel shape on the lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.  Spray lightly w/a little coconut cooking spray and then sprinkle the Everything But the Bagel Seasoning or Sesame Seeds and press into each bagel lightly.

7.  Bake for 10-14 minutes, until the bagels are firm and golden.  Keep an eye on them so they don’t get too dark. (I missed the timer the first time I made them and they were a little darker than I would’ve liked – but still Oh So Delicious!)

*Store in the refrigerator and slice to toast if you’d like it warm and crispy.

Banana Cream Fat Bombs

Banana Cream Fat Bombs

👨🏻‍🍳 I created this recipe after reading lots of other fat bomb recipes.  I made them tonight and even before they were refrigerated – they tasted amazing.  I mean, I HAD to lick the beaters and the spoon, right?  😀

Tip 1 :  Try some other flavors instead of banana.  I’m currently having orange 🍊(like a creamsicle flavor) and going to try lemon next. 🍋

Tip 2:  🥄Spray your spoon with coconut or avocado cooking spray and they’ll slide off much better into the mold.

Tip 3: To find the flavors/extracts I use – click on the underlined words.

Ingredients:
1 ¼ cups Cream Cheese – room temperature (1 brick plus 2 oz)
¾ cup Heavy Whipping Cream ( I use Horizon Organic)
1 tablespoon Banana Extract  or Banana Flavor
10 drops Vanilla or Plain Stevia (Add or lessen to taste) AND
1 Tsp Swerve confectioners sweetener (OR You can use all stevia or all swerve or another sweetener of your choice.  Just add slowly and taste after blending in each addition.)

Banana Flavor Vanilla Stevia

Instructions:
1. Spray a 30 well silicone mold with coconut oil baking spray or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  – Set aside. (Here’s the one I use: http://bit.ly/30CavitySiliconeMold)

2. In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, heavy cream, banana extract/flavor and sweeteners until smooth and very thick, about 5 minutes.

3. Spoon into the silicone mold (I filled 25 of the 30 wells) or if using baking sheet, spoon into mounds leaving some space between each.  Place the baking sheet into the freezer until firm – about 30 mins to  1 hour.


4. Pop them out and store and store your banana cream fat bombs in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
