Gathering of low carb/diabetic friendly recipes

My favorite snack to whip up:

Chocolate Mousse:

In a blender or using a whisk, beat 1/2 cup cream, 1 heaping teaspoon cocoa powder, and 2-3 packets of Splenda (depending). Can top with a shot of whipped cream out of the can for a couple extra carbs. Makes 1-2 servings... 9 carbs for entire recipe

Vanilla mousse:

Substitute 2 teaspoons vanilla for the cocoa. 7 carbs

Fruity mousse:

1/2 cup cream, 1 teaspoon sugar free Jello from a packet. Mix as above....YUMMY!!

The BOMB sugarfree chocolate cream pie:

Chocolate Cream Pie
INGREDIENTS
1 pound silken tofu
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup granular Splenda or 20 packets Splenda, or 1/2 cup with 1/2 cup other sweetner
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) prepared low carb crust (1 cup almond meal, 2 T melted butter, 1 packet Splenda -mix, press into pie pan, bake 10 min or until browned)

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Blend tofu in a food processor or blender until smooth. Blend in cocoa, sweetener, and vanilla. Pour into prepared crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

I was gonna make a chocolate/cinnamon/chili pepper pie so I mixed in 1 T cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne...it was so good I forgot to add the cocoa powder and it was the bombdiggity!!

Don't be scared of tofu. Soy is good for you in moderation.

I like to make a passable sugar free ice cream by blending 1/2 cup cream, a couple packets Splenda with some frozen berries, but this is a BOMB sugar free ice cream and hot fudge recipe...borrowed from Healthy Indulgences website:

Sugar-Free Vanilla Ice Cream (Semifreddo style)

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 vanilla bean, split (optional)

Sweetening options:
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons erythritol, powdered, or 1/2 cup xylitol, powdered plus 1/8 teaspoon NuNaturals pure stevia extract
OR
3/4 cup Splenda

4 fresh, organic eggs (whites and yolks separated)
2 cups organic heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Preparation:
In first bowl, beat sugar and egg yolks until mixture is a light creamy yellow, then beat in vanilla extract and bean scrapings. In second bowl, beat heavy cream until soft peaks form. In third bowl, beat egg whites, add a pinch of salt, and then keep beating until you have stiff peaks. Fold together cream and egg yolk mixture gently. Then fold in egg whites thoroughly, but with as few strokes as possible to keep the airiness. Spread into loaf pan lined with plastic wrap, or a metal mold. Freeze, covered loosely in plastic wrap, for at least 4 hours. Scoop out with an ice cream scoop. Alternatively, run water over the bottom of the pan for a few seconds, unmold, and slice.

~15.5g net carbs for the whole recipe using erythritol and stevia
~31.5g net carbs for the whole recipe using Splenda

Sugar-Free Hot Fudge Sauce
Adapted from a recipe at AllRecipes.com

Ingredients:
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate (I like Ghirardelli)
2 teaspoons unsalted organic butter
1/2 cup organic heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
6 tablespoons xylitol, powdered, OR 7 tablespoons erythritol, powdered
Pinch NuNaturals pure stevia extract
4-6 teaspoons water

Preparation:
Powder xylitol or erythritol in coffee grinder with pinch of sea salt. Chop chocolate finely. Melt together unsweetened chocolate and butter in a double boiler, stirring occasionally until smooth. I make my own double boiler by placing my steel bowl over simmering water in a small saucepan. Stir in cream and sweetener mixture, and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and add vanilla and water. Add more water to thin it out if necessary. Taste and adjust sweetness with a bit more stevia or powdered erythritol, as necessary. Keep in mind that the sauce will firm up over ice cream. Store in a jar in the refrigerator, and reheat and whisk well to use.

~10g net carbs for the whole batch

The BOMB brownies

Ingredients:

1 cup butter
2 cups splenda(or whatever sweetener you like and use)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
5 eggs
3 Tablespoons coconut flour
1 1/3 cup unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350F
Line a 8×8 or 9×9 square baking dish with parchment(or grease with butter) set aside.

Sift together cocoa powder, coconut flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.

In a large microwave safe dish, melt butter.
Let cool slightly(a few minutes)

In a large bowl whisk eggs, splenda, and vanilla. Slowly whisk in melted butter. Mix until incorporated. Whisk in sifted coconut flour/cocoa powder mixture. Mix until smooth.

Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth evenly.

Bake at 350F for 18-20 minutes*

Let cool completely before cutting.

*Brownies will look a little under done. But for me I have figured out that this works best with coconut flour. Bake any longer and you end up with super dry brownies.

The BOMB fudge:

Velveeta Cheese Fudge

1/4 pound Butter
1 cup sugar substitute

1/4 cup Cocoa
1/2 teaspoons Vanilla

Melt butter and cheese together. Mix in remaining ingredients. Spread in greased pan. Cool. Cut in squares. Keep in refrigerator. cut into 9 pieces - from 2-4 carbs per piece depending on sweetener.

OK, you can use cream cheese if you're not keen on Velveeta.

Have you heard of semifreddo? It's kind of like icecream. Actually it is! It's frozen cream. I want to try and make it this weekend. It seems easy to make low carb.

I don't know about everyone else, but I don't eat as much on a low carb diet. I don't feel hungry a lot. So I can eat few spoonfuls of full cream icecream then I'm done. My portion sizes are a lot smaller.

I made stuffed peppers last night. There's two variations on the filling.

Cut 2 big bell peppers in half and parboil them for 3-5 minutes.

Brown 1 pound ground beef. Dice and saute 1/2 onion and a stalk of celery in with the meat. Add a small can of diced tomatoes...the spicy ones are great! Let simmer about 10 minutes.

Stuff the peppers and top with shredded cheddar. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Variation: For a stuffing more like traditional rice, only use 1/2 pound of ground beef. Soak 1/2 cup of TSP or TSV in 1/2 cup boiling beef broth. Mix in after your meat and veggies simmer.

Tonight I'm cooking meat and gravy to pour over a puffy omelet. The puffy omelet if great for gravy dishes, like sausage gravy, chicken ala king, beef stroganoff,

Puffy Omelet:

Separate 4 eggs, beat the yolks with some pepper and 1T of butter or milk. Beat the whites until stiff but not dry, then fold in the yolks. Pour in an ovenproof skillet. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, then bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Or you can cook for 5 minutes, then spray the top with nonstick spray, flip it onto a plate, then slide it back in the skillet to finish it on the stove top.

Makes a great omelet too!!

For sausage or hamburger gravy, brown the meat, and then remove from the pan, reserving the drippings. Add some butter if there aren't much drippings, then a cup of cream. Season it with salt and pepper, and stir until the cream gets thick. Don't overcook or it might break down.

Serve over the puffy omelet!! Deelish!!

TSP or TSV: This is a good product to have in your low carb pantry. It's cheap and a good source of protein and very versatile. It makes a great rice substitute, and an awesome granola too. To rehydrate for rice, use equal parts TSP and either boiling water or broth. Chicken or beef broth makes it AWESOME!!

To make fried "rice": Dice and saute 1/4 of an onion in 3 T oil. Rehydrate a cup of TSP in a cup of chicken broth. Pour in the pan and saute it for a little bit. Optional: add in leftover diced meat or veggies. Sprinkle on a couple teaspoons of soy sauce.

Move everything to the side of the pan. Pour in a couple beaten eggs and scramble on the side of the pan. then before the egg is totally set, mix it in with the whole panful of 'rice'.


As "rice" rehydrated TSP makes a good base for jambalaya, chili, beans, or an asian-style stirfry.

I have a granola recipe somewhere for TSP. It just involves about about 1 cup of chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, filberts, pecans), 1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, 3/4 cup dry TSP. Melt 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil in the microwave and stir in 1/2 cup of sugar free maple syrup. Pour over the dry ingredients, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 300 for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

TSP or TVP is found in most grocery stores. Bob's Red Mill makes a good one and it's very inexpensive, unlike most low carb staples. Health Food Stores even carry it by the pound.

For Thanksgiving stuffing, substitute TSP for the dried bread crumbs and it will be WONDERFUL. A good low carb stuffing also has lots of veggies and maybe even meat (think sausage or oysters).

Here's a "cornbread stuffing" recipe:

POULTRY STUFFING

1 C texturized vegetable protein (TVP)

1 1/3 C crushed pork rinds (bakenetts are mildest)

1 stick butter

4 stalks celery, chopped

1/2 C chopped scallions

1C sliced mushrooms

2C chicken broth

1 tsp sage

garlic, salt and pepper to taste

Sauté celery and onions in butter in large skillet until transparent. Add mushrooms, broth, and bring to boil. Add texturized vegetable protein and pork rinds. Add spices, remove from heat. Let the mixture absorb the juice. This will be very moist. This is much better after it has refrigerated for a day and then is reheated in the microwave. It takes on the crunchy roasted flavor of stuffing.

This freezes very well. Very yummy.

Data per my TVP for a small serving of stuffing (8 servings for whole recipe) Cals 220, Fat 16, Carbs 11, Fiber 10, net carbs 2 , Protein 16 grams

I almost forgot I made oatmeal cookies with TSP once.

TVP Oatmeal Cookies

12 cookies approx 1 carb per cookie

1/2 cup TVP (6 carbs)
1/4 cup almond flour (3 carbs)
1/4 cup wheat protein isolate 5000 (1 carb) or Wheat gluten for 5 carbs
1 Tablespoon old fashion Quaker Oats (3carbs)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
3 packets splenda
1/2 t molasses

1/3 cup equivalent liquid splenda
2 Tablespoons Crisco green (no trans fat shorting)
2 Tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all the dry ingredient together in a medium bowl.
Cut in the Crisco till well incorperated,
then stir in the remaining wet ingredient till well mixed.

Form into 1 inch balls and space several inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Smash each ball with the bottom of a water dipped glass.

Bake in a 375 degree oven 9 to 11 minutes until golden brown.

Other things in my low carb pantry:

Almond Meal: Bob's REd Mill is good but expensive ($10). If you have a Trader Joe's around it's about half the price of what I pay ($5), but you can stretch it. You can also make your own in a blender or food processor from unroasted whole almonds that you can get in bulk ($4). Another substitute is unsalted sunflower seeds - blended.

Coconut Oil: Kinda pricey too ($8 a pint) but it is SO good for you and so mild in flavor..doesn't really taste like coconut. It's good for your skin, good to butter toast with. Good to fry with and an essential in low carb baked goods.

Butter: Much better for you than margarine. If you can't afford coconut oil, just get butter.

Cream: heavy whipping cream for recipes, and table or light cream for coffee, or as a milk substitute by mixing it with half water.

Vital Wheat Gluten: again Bob's Red Mill is the kind I get for about $5. Kinda high in carbs, but needed for some low carb baked goods to help it stick together

Coconut Flour: cheaper than coconut oil and the 'new' thing in low carb baking. Made a gritty gravy, but is excellent in low carb biscuits and other baked goods.

Sweeteners:

I use Splenda (sucralose) a LOT. The unsweetened coffee syrups are made with sucralose for the most part. Some people may not like the 'artificiality' of Splenda even though it's made from sugar. My jury is out on this. As such, I go thru a LOT of the unsweetened coffee syrups, vanilla, Kahlua, carmel, hazelnut, raspberry. Just remember the fillers in the powdered Splenda contain carbs, about 1 carb per packet and more for the spoonable Splenda. You can get liquid sucralose which equals about 1 drop for a teaspoon's worth of sweetener, so it's kinda pricey but last a long time.

Erithritol: I bought some at a health food store, looks like sugar, but has a 'cool' taste. Best when used with other sweeteners, like Stevia...hence the TRUVIA you can buy in stores. But I can use 1 packet of splenda in a cup of tea and it takes 2 Truvia packets to make it just as sweet...but very good for baking. Unless it's melted in your recipe, you may have to powder it in a blender or a spice or coffee grinder to avoid graininess. This is by far the best sugar alcohol you can get. I sure miss the Hersheys 1 Carb bars that they used to have that were made with Erithritol.

Xylitol: also got this at the health food store. Great mixed with erithritol, but should be powdered too in most recipes. But this is a sugar alcohol that may have a laxative effect, or a gaseous one anyway.

Stevia: All natural and not too expensive, but hard to find a non-bitter one...so don't buy the cheapest LOL. Google "good tasting stevia" to find a good one available in your area...like NuNaturals.

Stay away from Equal or any aspartame cuz it has more carbs and is probably pretty bad for you.

So for the most part: Splenda is good for recipes, or Splenda/Erithritol, or Erithritol/Stevia or Erithritol/Stevia/Xylitol.

Here's a great recipe for calzones. I used meatballs, pepperoni, sauteed mushrooms, onions, and peppers, olives and sliced provolone cheese. Don't be freaked out by this zucchini crust...it's great.

My coconut macaroons: (made with what I had on hand)

1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup Davinci sugar free vanilla syrup
3 egg whites
2 packets Truvia (or Splenda)
2 Tablespoons coconut flour (or almond flour)
1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 cup cream

Mix the sugar free syrup with the coconut and let sit, covered for awhile. Beat the egg whites until peaks form. Sprinkle the 2 packets of sweetener on the egg whites and mix in.

Mix the coconut flour, baking powder, and cream in with the coconut. Fold in the egg whites. Drop by rounded teaspoons full on parchment paper or shiny cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until tops begin to brown. If you don't have parchment paper, move the oven rack to the top of the oven.

This makes about 24 small macaroons for .75 carb per cookie. And they are YUMMY!!

HOT CHOCOLATE!! Yummy!!

Boil 1 cup of water.

Mix 1 heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder (dutched is best for non-cooked stuff), and 3 capfuls of Davinci sugar free syrup. (vanilla is good as well as Kahlua, and I'm sure Caramel would be great).

Pour in the hot water while stirring to melt the cocoa.
Pour in cream to taste. 2-3 T or so.

Enjoy!!!
