After the fiasco of last week’s cheesecake in a mug, I was on the hunt for an easy, tasty Keto dessert. Thankfully, Pinterest delivered!
Here’s what I used:

~One packet sugar free Jell-O cheesecake mix
~2 cups heavy whipping cream
All you have to do is mix the two together until it starts to thicken up. Then, either eat right away or divvy them up into individual containers and refrigerate!

You guys, this was DELICIOUS! Seriously, it was so good! The calorie count was a little high BUT, it is Keto and it’s not bad for a dessert or a “treat”! Here are the stats:

I’m still going on the low-carb bandwagon, mainly because I had a little bit of a hiccup in January. I was literally sick for 21 days out of the month. TWENTY. ONE. DAYS. Now, to clarify, I wasn’t running a fever or had the flu. But I battled a sore throat, ear infection, cough, congestion, runny nose, and headaches for the entire three weeks. It wasn’t until last weekend I actually got some relief. Anyway, since I’m back doing low carb, I decided to try a recipe I pinned on Pinterest a while back for a microwave Keto cheesecake in a mug! Woohoo!

Here’s what I used:

~2 oz cream cheese, cubed

~ 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

~1/2 teaspoon stevia

~1 large egg

First, I put the cream cheese in my mug and popped it in the microwave for 15 seconds. Then, I added the vanilla and Stevia.

After that, I added the egg. I had to stir a for a hot minute to get the batter smooth, so remember that if you try this!

Then, the mug went back into the microwave for another 90 seconds.

After that, I put the cheesecake onto a small plate and refrigerated it for an hour. When it was done, I added some whipped topping and strawberries.

Y’all…this was…in a word: DISGUSTING.

OMG this is probably one of my biggest Pinterest fails EVER. Seriously. It was so freaking gross. It legit just tasted like creamy eggs. I took one bite and then threw it all in the trash.

Very disappointing.

One of my favorite shows in high school was MTV’s Cribs. It was basically a total ripoff of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous–another one of my family’s fave shows growing up. Anywhoo, the hilarious momma over at That’s Inappropriate thought it was time for some reality on reality TV and did her own spoof of those programs and LAWD it is so relatable:

 

“I do endless amounts of laundry in here and, if we’re honest, its completely soul-sucking.”

Agreed, honey. AGREED.
