Christmas Trifle : The Low Carb Way

At this time of year many of us are beginning to think about Christmas. You may be out and about buying Christmas cards and presents and enjoying the many Christmas trees that are already in the shopping malls and stores with their Christmas lights twinkling.

Whatever Christmas preparations you 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 (heavy) 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.

I hope you may enjoy this recipe suggestion

All the best Jan

Just what I need! I am making trifles for a party and will want to have some myself, plus a couple of diabetics, so I will be using this recipe. Thank you.

I've heard of trifle, but we never had it when I was growing up. It sounds good.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Sounds yummy! Thanks.

By the way, I treated myself to an air fryer recently. What a terrific tool for making foods taste fried without all of the unnecessary fat and calories!

Have a super weekend.
