When you’re going low carb there really is very little you can do to satisfy a sugar craving, you can’t even have a peice of fruit! So when I saw a recipe floating around on Pinterest for home made Greek yoghurt I got the idea to try and invent some keto-friendly fro yo with what I could scrape together in my kitchen.
- 1 pot of Total Greek yoghurt
- 225ml double cream
- 2 tbsp Green & Blacks unsweetened cocoa powder
It was all very simple to make; as it should be when you’re needing a quick fix. Just whisk it all up in a bowl until thickened.
Stick it in the freezer for an hour or so and it’s ready to serve. Looks pretty convincing huh? Just like chocolate ice cream!
The reality? Hmmm, not so good. There is no sugar in this dessert, which makes it horribly disappointing to eat. It’s like eating ice cream that had all of the fun sucked out of it. It is lovely and creamy mind, but with no sweetness whatsoever the cocoa is very bitter.
If you’re hell bent on keeping on the straight and narrow this low carb frozen yoghurt will do the trick with around 2g carbs per serving. But otherwise, stick to the Ben & Jerry’s.
