Luxurious Low Carb Christmas Trifle

The weekends pass so quickly, and at this time of year many of us are out and about buying Christmas cards and presents, Christmas trees etc ... perhaps you may already have your tree up ... and the Christmas tree lights are already twinkling. 

Whatever Christmas preparations you still need to do, I’m sure it will get done and in the meantime here is a good recipe that may help with your Christmas food ideas.

It's a very tasty low carb trifle, it’s quite a favourite with us and the family. Why not give it a try and see what you think.

Serves 6-8
100 grams of ground almonds
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon of melted butter
2 tablespoons of double cream
A 500g pack of frozen low-carb summer fruits ... thawed
(I use ones that are 4.1g carbs per 80g serving)
300ml of extra thick cream
A handful of toasted flaked almonds
2 x 12.5 grams of instant raspberry, sugar free, jelly crystals

1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
2. Mix the beaten eggs and double cream in separate bowl.
3. Melt the butter in microwave, just use a small microwaveable dish.
4. Slowly add the melted butter to the eggs and cream, keep stirring slowly.
5. Then add the dry ingredients and mix well together (I usually add the mixture approx 50g i.e. half, at a time).
6. When mixed well, pour into a 6" microwave proof dish, and microwave in a 700watt for 3 minutes.
7. Allow almond sponge to cool and break up into small pieces.
8. Layer up in a Pyrex bowl, 7" wide by 4" deep, (or similar dish of your choice) the fruit, and sponge.
9. Make up your low carb raspberry jelly, as per instructions on pack, and pour the liquid jelly over the sponge and fruit.
10. Allow to set in the fridge.

Just before serving:
Cover top with extra thick cream and toasted flaked almonds.


All the best Jan

We don't eat trifle but my mum is a big fan of it so perhaps I could make a smaller version just for her.

Many thanks to Eileen, Annie, Jane, Martha and Jo ...
It's always lovely to receive your comments.

Trifle is an 'age old' favourite in our family, from my Dear Dad at 90yrs down to the youngest grandchild 3yrs we all like it, and this lower carb version is a winner. I think every home at Christmas should have one - or at least a smaller version !

Hope you've all had a good weekend. Every good wish for the coming new week ahead.

All the best Jan

I love to see metric recipes. It's the only kind of cookery and bake books I'll buy. And if I could eat some of these ingredients, I'd make this.

Thanks for comment. I was offline and unplugged doing house projects and getting stronger. Hope all is well with you.

So pleased to see you back posting. Sometimes it is good to have a break from the computer, and get things done ... but so pleased to hear you are getting stronger.

Take Care - my good wishes coming your way ...

All the best Jan
