Vanilla Panna Cotta : Low Carb : Keto

Anne Aobadia at Diet Doctor site says 'Pure, unadulterated creaminess. For a luxurious keto/low carb dessert, look no further. Pomegranate and mint add colour, and you can enjoy this elegant, make-ahead finish to any special celebrations or get-together all year-round!'

Four servings
4g carbs per serving
2 tsp (5g) unflavoured powdered gelatine
2 cups (475ml) heavy (double) whipping cream
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp (4g) erythritol (optional)
2 tbsp. pomegranates, the seeds

fresh mint (optional)
Flavour options abound. Feel free to try saffron, liquorice powder, lemon/orange zest, cocoa, or coffee powder (diluted in some hot water). It is recommended that you add some vanilla extract to the recipe even if you choose another main flavour. Vanilla enhances the natural sweetness of the cream and balances other flavours.

Jewel-like pomegranate seeds are extremely versatile and add a burst of sweetness to everything they're added to. Choose pomegranates with smooth, shiny skin which are heavy for their size – they'll be juicier. To remove the seeds, cut in half and, using a wooden spoon, bash the back of the pomegranate over a bowl. Pomegranate seeds can be added as a bright finishing touch to all sorts of salads, tagines and side dishes but can also star on their own.

With Type2 Diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough Insulin (a hormone which regulates your blood sugar level) or the Insulin it produces doesn’t work properly, because your body cells are resistant to it. Type 2 is described as lifestyle disease as it occurs in people who have less physical activity, who are obese or overweight. This is the most common form of diabetes. Research has shown that type 2 can be prevented by exercise , proper nutrition and lifestyle changes.
