the best No Carb Dessert




Most classic desserts contain carbs, often in the form of added sugar and white flour in cookies, cakes, and tarts. It can be difficult, but not impossible, to come up with creative and tasty no carb desserts. You will need to use sugar substitutes like Splenda or Stevia, and in place of flour you can use almond meal or another nut-based flour. In general, look for dairy-based desserts like cheesecake, as these will be high in protein and low in carbs.



1. No Carb Cheesecake


No Carb Cheesecake is a great choice for low carb dieters, as it consists mostly of cheese and eggs. And no crust!

Cheesecake gets baked in the oven but then must cool for two to three hours in order for it to set and hold its shape. Here are two basic no carb cheesecake recipes for you to try.

1 Teaspoon Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
¼ Cup Water
Artificial Sweetener to Taste
Directions:

In a small saucepan, whisk together unsweetened cocoa powder with water until hot.
Sweeten, if desired, with your favorite artificial sweetener.

4. Cheese

Cheese is naturally low carb; one ounce of cheese has less than half a gram of net carbs. Enjoy an ounce or two of nice cheese after dinner for a guilt-free dessert.

5. Low Carb Mousse

This mousse is similar to no carb cheesecake, but has no eggs and thus does not require baking.  Because of the cheeses used in this mousse, there are about four grams of net carbs, so it is not completely carb-free.

½ Cup Ricotta or Cottage Cheese
Artificial Sweetener to Taste
Cinnamon to Taste
Nutmeg to Taste
Ginger to Taste

It is hard to create a completely carb-free dessert, but the ideas above come quite close, most having less than one gram of net carbs per serving. Remember that dessert does not have to be sweet; cheese is a common finisher in many countries, and it’s a great choice for the low carb dieter. Get creative, too; you can make no carb cheesecake in a variety of ways, and you can flavor pudding and mousse with various spices and extracts without adding carbs.  Get in the kitchen and try your hand at one of these no carb desserts!
