KETO CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM

With this recipe you can make your own delicious keto friendly chocolate ice cream with just 5 ingredients!

For this recipe I used an ice cream maker, but if you don’t have one, not to worry. You can still prepare this delicious ice cream.

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter on medium heat. When the butter is melted, add 2 cups of heavy cream and the powdered erythritol.
  2. Higher the heat, and bring the mixture to a boil, when it starts to boil, lower down the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Stir inbetween.
  3. When the mixture is ready (when it sticks to the back of a spoon), add the cacao powder, mix with a spatula or whisk. Set aside and let it cool down.
  4. When the mixture is cooled down, add the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream. Mix until everything is incorporated and transfer to the ice cream maker. Let it run until the ice cream is formed.
  5. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, transfer the mixture into a container, place in the freezer and stir every 30 minutes, until the ice cream is formed.

KETO LASAGNA STUFFED BELL PEPPERS

If you liked the stuffed bell peppers recipe I posted in the past, you’re in for a treat with this one! These are just amazing!

Instead of stuffing the bellpeppers with just the seasoned ground beef, like I did before, I actually cooked the ground beef with tomatosauce first and then stuffed the bellpepers. Then I added a layer of cream cheese and added some mozarella cheese on top (just like I do with the keto lasagna) which makes them nice and moist. Absolutely delish!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large bell peppers
  • 17 oz. ground beef
  • 1 onion, cut in small pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Italian seasoning to taste
  • 4-6 tbs cream cheese
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh or dried parsley to garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut the bell peppers in half and take out the seeds.
  2. Prepare the ground beef: in a large pot, melt the butter on medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic. When the onion starts to glaze, add the ground beef. Break up the meat as is cooks, and add the tomato sauce, salt and pepper and Italian seasoning.
  3. When the meat is ready, preheat the oven to 400 F and line out a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking sheet.
  4. Stuff the bell pepper with the meat and top them off with the cream cheese. Sprinkle some mozzarella on top and bake them in the oven for around 20 minutes, until the tops start to brown.
  5. Garnish with some fresh or dried parsley.
  6. Enjoy!

KETO ENDIVES WITH HAM AND CAULIFLOWER SAUCE

Endive is a typical vegetable from Belgium that is not very well known abroad. It’s a leafy vegetable that is high in folate, vitamin A and K, and is high in fiber. It tastes a bit bitter, but when you cook it in a recipe like this one, it’s delicious!

In the traditional recipe, béchamel sauce is used, but I replaced it with a cauliflower sauce that tastes just as good, if not better!

INGREDIENTS (6 endives)

  • 6 endives
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 2 cup of water
  • salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste

For the cauliflower sauce

  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbs of butter
  • Half a cauliflower head, cut in florets
  • 1 cup bone broth/ beef stock
  • Salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Start by preparing the endives. Remove the outer leaves and cut off the bottom and cut out the hearts.
  2. In a pan, melt 1 tbs of butter on medium heat. Add the endives to the pan, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Fry both sides for 2 minutes and add the water.
  3. Lower the heat and let the endives cook for 40-45 minutes until they are done.
  4. Prepare the sauce: in a medium sized pot, melt 1 tbs of butter on medium heat, add the cut onion and minced garlic. When the onion starts to glaze, add the cauliflower florets and the bone broth. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Lower the heat and let simmer until the cauliflower is soft.
  5. When the cauliflower is soft, add some juice from the pan with the endives (about 4 tbs) and mix everything together with a blender until you have a creamy consistency. Add the grated cheese and mix. Set aside.
  6. Preheat the oven at 400 F.
  7. When the endives are done (they are done when you can poke trough them with a fork), roll them up in a slice of ham and place them in a baking dish. Cover them with the cauliflower sauce.
  8. Sprinkle some cheese on top and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. To get a crust on the top, use the grill modus for 5 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
