Sugar Free Balsamic Glaze

This glaze (or reduction) is perfect drizzled over some mozzarella, grape tomatoes, and basil (hello caprese). Make it even more fun by making a salad on a stick using skewers. Balsamic glaze is also great drizzled over bruschetta, grilled veggies, margarita pizzas, and essentially any summer time fare like berries, goat cheese, crudite, etc!

Sugar Free Balsamic Glaze

This two ingredient recipe is super easy to make and pairs well with many fruits, cheese, and veggies. The consistently should be like a warmed honey.

Sugar Free Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sugar Free Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

OMG ya’ll…these taste just like the grocery store bakery ones…like dare I say almost like the packaged Nestle Toll House cookies too. The trick to these is to really watch them or they will burn easily and also let them cool 100% before digging in or else they will fall apart in your hands.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Use a hand mixer or thoroughly mix the butter, egg, vanilla, and sweetener.
  • Add baking powder, almond flour, chocolate chips, and instant pudding mix to the butter mixture and continue mixing until everything is incorporated.
  • Use a small cookie scoop or tablespoon to portion out the cookie dough onto a baking tray. Pro-tip: line the tray with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  • Use a rubber spatula or your fingers to slightly flatten the dough as it will not flatten like a flour/sugar cookie.
  • Bake the cookies at 350 degrees between 5-10 minutes depending on your oven. I use a toaster oven, so the bake time will vary for you. The cookies are ready as soon as you seen any golden color to them. You don’t want them to be golden all over as almond flour can burn quickly.
  • Let them cool completely before eating!

FAQ: “What do you do with your leftover fry oil?”

Well let me answer that question – something we get almost 20 times daily any time we feature a video of us frying food on our Instagram account.

Short answer: we save it and continue using it until it is too dark or gets cloudy.

Here’s the scoop…

Our families have always deep fried foods since before we can even remember. Back in the day, there would be a designated “frying pot” where the oil would sit until someone needed to fry something – nowadays, in our own homes, here is what we do:

  1. Let the oil cool completely.
  2. Place a mesh strainer at the mouth of a large jar and pour the oil in there. You want the big bits to get caught so it doesn’t end up floating around in the jar. The reason you want to strain the oil is so when you reuse the oil, it doesn’t make the oil darker than it needs to be. It also helps keep the oil tasting fresher (in our opinion).
  3. Close the jar and store at room temperature.
  4. We reuse the oil until it becomes a brown color but that is completely up to you. The darker the oil, the darker your food will look after you fry it, so just adjust the amount of times you reuse based on the color and preference you have.

Now some additional questions we know y’all are going to have:

  1. What kind of oil do you use? We like to use avocado oil because it is clean and has a high smoke point. Use what oil you can afford and are comfortable cooking with. Canola oil, peanut oil, and soybean oil are all oils we have fried with – they are just very processed.
  2. How many times do you re-use oil? Depending on what we fry, it’s 5-6 times. If we fry fish, the oil is dunzo because the smell and taste will not go away.
  3. What deep fryer do you recommend?

Sugar Free Pudding Cookies

These are an OG recipe for us because when we jumped back into the keto lifestyle, these kept us afloat as the pounds started to melt off. Now, we aren’t saying these are going to help you shed the lbs, but they will satisfy your sweet tooth so you don’t reach for the sugar filled carbs. For those of you who practice a clean way of eating – THESE ARE NOT FOR YOU. Since this recipe calls for instant pudding powder, we like to call this “dirty keto”, which means there are processed ingredients in the pudding mix – so please keep that in mind as you start gathering the ingredients for these delicious cookies. BY THE WAY – THE COOKIES IN THE FEATURED PHOTO ARE BANANA CREAM PIE FLAVOR AND THEY TASTE LIKE BANANA TAFFY, just sayin’.

The texture of these cookies is soft and chewy, especially if you under cook them like I usually do. I can make 20 cookies from this batch and store them in the fridge to keep them super fresh.

Some notes:

  1. I have no idea if coconut flour will yield the same result – but if you try, know that you it’s a 1:4 coconut to almond ratio.
  2. I use vanilla flavor for chocolate chip cookies. In the past, we have also done pistachio cookies, double chocolate chip cookies as well using pistachio and chocolate pudding packets.

Fall into Ketosis Challenge

@theketodashians

New season, better habits! Join us to reset for fall! Daily updates on our instagram page 💕##learnontiktok ##keto ##lowcarb ##fallintoketosis ##easyketo

♬ You Got It – Vedo

W T F happened to Summer 2020?! With the official start of Fall commencing on Sept 22, we thought it would be fun to jump start the new season with a keto based health and wellness reset week starting on Monday, Sept 21st. This challenge will run from Sept 21- Sept 25th and will focus on total grams of carbs, upping your step game, and being better with your water intake.

The guidelines are simple:

  1. Stick to 20g TOTAL carbs or fewer. That means DO NOT SUBTRACT ANY FIBER to get to 20g of total carbs. This also means you will be depending on very low carb foods to get you through the week instead of many processed foods with added fiber or sugar alcohols. This is a great way to refocus your low carb intake and challenge yourself to eat more unprocessed, whole foods.
  2. Aim for 10K steps a day. Yes, we understand that many of you can barely fit 3K steps into your daily routines between your jobs, families, activities, and general schedule. However, there are many opportunities you can take to fit steps in, like take the stairs at work, taking a walk during your breaks, parking further away from the entrances if businesses, etc. If you want to achieve something, you’ll make it work.
  3. Try to be consistent with your hydration patterns by hitting 100oz of water each day of the challenge. Water is so beneficial on ANY diet, but it’s super helpful when you’re entering a deeper state of ketosis. Your coffee and electrolytes count as water too.

We will support you throughout the week by answering your questions and documenting what we do ourselves to reset for the Fall. Follow us on Instagram to watch for story updates, meal ideas, and live q&a sessions.

Before you start, take pictures, measurements, and weigh yourself. This will show you how small changes can make a difference. Make sure you plan ahead by making sure you have plenty of food and ingredient options that will nourish you this week and keep you satiated. Do not plan to wing it the morning of Day 1.

If you need a little TLC because you are new to keto or have never tracked total carbs, here is a sample meal plan with product links to get you through the week. Please note that these are suggestions and you can customize them to ensure success with your reset. If you need more meal ideas, search the #20gtotalreboot hashtag on Instagram to see past meals we have eaten during this type of reset.

No Bake Sugar Free Jello Pie

If you’re a fan of jello salad, then you’ll be fan of this pie. This is a major throwback to some retro desserts but it’s so darn easy to make and is no fuss with the no bake aspect. I used the shortcut method to set the jello which makes it even quicker to put together.

The texture of the filling is like a super fluffy mousse. Add any extra filling into mason jars to have a nice sweet treat the rest of the week!

♬ Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat) – Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo

Literally the easiest dessert EVER!! If you’re strict keto or tracking total carbs, this one’s not for you. If you’re a little lax and want a sinful dessert without the guilt, this is perfect for you. It is definitely dirty keto but you can EASILY clean it up with your own home made version. I used to make this all the time with pre made pie crust and chips ahoy and OMG I could probably kill an entire pie.

If you have leftover keto cookies and want to use them up, use these in place of the High Key Cookies that we use for the demo. It’s super hot and muggy in Minnesota right now so baking is not an option until it cools down.

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: cookie pie, cookies, no bake, pie
Servings: 10 people

Ingredients

  • 2 bags keto chocolate chip cookies (if you don't have access to packaged keto cookies, make your own – our chocolate chip pudding cookies are a good sub)

  • 1 keto pie crust i used Diamond Pie Crust from Walmart. They have walnut or pecan options. You can make your own if you want to clean it up.
  • 6-8 oz Sugar Free Cool Whip (thawed) You can also make your own if you want to clean it up.

Instructions

  • Dip a little over 1/2 of a bag of mini cookies in milk and place them on the pie crust (if you're using your own cookies, dip 4-5 cookies in milk)
  • Spread 1/3 of the cool whip over the cookie layer.
  • Dip more cookies in milk to form the next layer of the pie.
  • Spread another 1/3 of the cool whip mixture over the second cookie layer.
  • Crumble up the remaining cookies and sprinkle them over the second cool whip layer.
  • Cover the pie and let it cool for at least 4-6 hours before serving for the best results. You want the cookie pieces to soften.

How to Order the Keto Pink Drink + Matcha Cold Foam at Starbucks

We love to ketofy our favorite comfort foods and beverages so there’s something about being able to ketofy this Starbucks drink that makes it feel even that much better.

Here’s how to order:

“Hi, may I please get a Grande Passionfruit Iced Tea, no water, add light heavy cream, with 1-2 packets of stevia… and can you please top it with cold foam made with heavy cream, sugar free vanilla, and a scoop of matcha powder?”

They should be able to make this beverage request for you with no issues. They will point out that there is sugar in the matcha powder – so order based on your keto preferences. There is about 5g of sugar in one scoop of matcha powder. We eat and drink to fit our macros, so this works as a treat for us.
