Summer Sundae : Scrumptious and Low Carb


With all this hot/warm weather, it must be time for a Summer Sundae 😋

( If it's not hot where you are you may prefer a slice of berry pie - see here )

Libby at Ditch the Carbs Site makes a simple low carb sundae which has layered raspberries, blackberries, chocolate cream and whipped cream. She say's it’s a much better option than a McDonalds strawberry (?) sundae which has 65g carbs and a whopping 54g sugar!

This simple low carb sundae (6g net carbs per serving) is a winning dessert, and so easy to whip up after a meal.

Ingredients
Serves Four
6g net carbs per serving500 ml double/heavy cream
2 tbs. granulated sweetener of choice or more, to your taste
100 g raspberries
100 g blackberries
coconut chips unsweetened
1 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
Instructions

Berries
Did you know that berries, including strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, are not only delicious but also an excellent source of important minerals; they are a good source of potassium, magnesium, and manganese.

The berries would make it for me! I love all kinds of berries and eat some every day! When you don't eat sugar, fruit tastes so much sweeter!

This sundae looks delicious. Is there any kind of crumble that you could add to the top of it that doesn't detract from the nutrious value?

Hello Arthur
Many thanks for your comment and question.
You could perhaps use a few chopped pecan nuts to give it a more crunchy top.
Or why not try this recipe suggestion for a low carb Blackberry Cobbler/Crumble, find it here

Hello Jenn
Many thanks for your comment.
I popped over to your blog and pleased to see that 'Grandma Camp' is going well.

I am pleased the grandies enjoyed their Korean ice cream, apparently you can get some that are shaped like a shark ... more to read here
