I’m still working on shedding those last few pounds I’m still carrying from having Huff the Babe (yes, he’s two and a half; no, I don’t think I should have lost this a long time ago) but it gets a little frustrating to stay within my macros–especially in the summer heat–when I just really want some ice cream to chow down and cool off. Thankfully, I found a great dessert that won’t bust my macros and actually tastes good!

I found this delicious dessert from the site Hip 2 Keto, which has a ton of Keto Diet-friendly recipes and food ideas! Here’s what the recipe called for:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoons almond butter

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

5 drops liquid Stevia (I would actually use Splenda; the Stevia didn’t “sweeten” it that much and it was a wee bit bitter)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

First, mix up all the ingredients in a small bowl until soft peaks form. This took me about 2-3 minutes.

 

Then, place your mixture in the freezer for about 30 minutes to an hour. You want it to be *just* on the edge of freezing without being completely frozen. Then, remove from the freezer, stir, and place your mixture into a gallon size, zip top bag. Cut the corner off and pipe the frozen treat into three cups, distributing evenly.

Then, enjoy!

This was pretty good! It was a little bitter for my taste, but Huff the Hubs really liked it! I added some fat free whipped topping to mine and it helped the taste IMMENSELY! If you’re wondering, here are the nutrition facts for the “frosty”:
