Now I’m going to give you three great recipes. I’m giving you the recipes for a blueberry and coconut smoothie, a low-carb pumpkin cupcake recipe and a low-carb chocolate pudding recipe.
Here are the recipes:
Blueberries & Coconut Smoothie
- unsweetened shredded coconut – 3 tablespoons
- unsweetened almond milk – three-quarter cups
- Total Solutions vanilla protein powder – 1 or 2 scoops
- chunks of frozen zucchini – 1 cup
- frozen cauliflower – ½ cup
- frozen blueberries – ½ cup
- cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
Let’s begin this recipe by mixing your almond milk and shredded coconut into a blender. Blend this for about 30 seconds. After that just put all of the other ingredients into the blender. I word highly recommend that the pulse setting and blend everything until it’s nice and creamy. This will give you more of a thick consistency and if you prefer to have it be a bit more liquid just added more unsweetened almond milk until you have the consistency that you prefer.
Low Carb Chocolate Pudding
- unsweetened almond milk – 2 cups
- sweetener – ⅓ cup
- unsweetened cocoa powder – 3 tbsps
- chia seeds – ¼ cup
This is a really fantastic recipe and it’s so easy to make. Just take all of the above ingredients put them into a nice sized bowl and mix them together until everything is blended nicely. After everything is totally combined all you have to do is put into the refrigerator and let it chill overnight. This recipe makes approximately 2 servings each of them having about 15 grams of carbohydrates, 12 grams of fat and about 8 grams of protein.
Pumpkin Cupcakes Low Carb Style
- pumpkin puree – 2 cups
- almond meal – 1 cup
- coconut flour – ⅔ cup
- Stevia – 1 cup
- pumpkin spice – 1 tbsp
- cinnamon – 1½ teaspoons
- vanilla – 2 tsps
- salt – ½ tsps
- baking soda – ½ tsps
- eggs – 2 large
This is a wonderful recipe and it’s one of my go to snacks. Let’s begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. Take a muffin pan and place cupcake liners in each slot. Then take a good-sized bowl and whisk together the eggs, Stevia and pumpkin until it’s nice and puffy. After that stir in all of the other ingredients until everything is thoroughly blended together. Now all that you have to do is pour the batter into each muffin pan and bake this for about a half hour to 40 minutes just until it is thoroughly cooked and if you stick a toothpick in it a comes out totally clean. Now all you have to do is just let this cool down for about 15 minutes.
So there you have it, 3 great low-carb recipes that will help you lose weight safely and effectively. And don’t worry I know these recipes taste too good to be diet food but as long as you stick with our weight loss program you should be fine.
