Basically, It doesn’t matter how much time you have available, to prepare food. We are going to develop a program specifically for you. To help you reach your goals. So with that being said here are two fabulous recipes that are both low in calories and low in carbohydrate content. And each of them only takes a few minutes of prep time. One recipe is going to be for a healthy smoothie, and for this recipe all that you have to do is throw everything into a blender and then drink it. The other recipe is going to be for a delicious fudge.
- Mint Fudge Recipe*
Heavy cream – 2 cups
Powdered sugar substitute – three-quarter cup
Stevia glyceride – 1 teaspoon
Peppermint Flavor – 1 teaspoon
Unsweetened baking chocolate – 6 ounces chopped
Sea salt – 1/4 teaspoon
This is a super simple and easy recipe and it does not take a lot of time. First we should take and 8 inch square baking dish and line with parchment paper. Make sure that you grease the parchment paper so that it comes off easily. After that place a small saucepan over medium heat and stir together the peppermint flavor, Stevia, heavy cream and powdered sugar substitute. You should bring this to a very late summer and then remove it from the heat and stir in the chocolate and the salt.
Continue stirring until the chocolate is thoroughly melted. Next pour the chocolate batter into your baking pan and spread this across the pan using a spoon. Now, all you have to do is cover and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. I prefer to have mine stay in the refrigerator overnight. And the next morning just cut it into 18 squares. This recipe makes 18 pieces and each individual peas has 97 cal, 8 g of fat, 2 g of protein, 4 g of carbohydrates and 3 g of fiber.
- The I Can’t Believe It’s an Avocado Smoothie Recipe*
You definitely must try this smoothie recipe. It’s so good you won’t believe it’s an avocado smoothie. The cream cheese, powder sweetener and vanilla extract definitely turn this into a nice tasty treat.

Cream cheese – 2 ounces
2 tablespoons of sugar substitute such as Stevia
Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or any other flavor of your liking
salt – 1/4 teaspoons
This is a ridiculously simple easy recipe all that you have to do is combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend until everything is creamy smooth. This recipe makes 2 servings and each of them has approximately 200 cal, 18 g of fat, 6 g of protein, 5 g of carbohydrates and 3 g of fiber.
