Good morning everyone!

Here is my dilemma...........

My in-laws are coming to dinner this weekend and I have decided on a meal of roast chicken, green beens, mashed cauliflower with a bit of cheese melted on top and a green salad. The problem is dessert! Anyone have any brilliant dessert ideas tucked away that they would share?

I would really like to find something that I can enjoy as well as everyone else...........*sigh*

Whipped heavy cream with a few wild berries stirred in (frozen berries are fine -- makes it a bit like ice-cream) and dark chocolate shaved over top just before serving.

Cheese plate with a selection of full fat cheeses and nuts... and dark chocolate :whistle:

Do a Google search for flourless black bean cake. It's outta this world and you can eat it too if you modify with art. sweetener. Or one I had in Yugoslavia...yogurt (Greek), layered in a tall wine glass with crushed walnuts or other nut, with honey for them on the top and sweetener for you. Put several layers. Then top with whipping cream...simple, fast and delicious!

Chocolate topping for Vanilla Carbsmart ice cream..

Bugg's ice cream topping… just because you need a fix….
or you just feel like something rich and sweet….Hea!:eek:

two parts …. sugar free Hershey’s chocolate topping
two parts …. sugar sub, crystal ( what ever you use is OK )
three parts ….Cream or half n half (+ or – according to the thickness you like)
one part …. Peanut butter, any kind, crunchy or reg.

Combine all ingredients and mix until soft and thick. Pour about 1 tbs. or amount desired over Brayer’s Carbsmart vanilla ice cream…

S.O.B. it’s wonderful… Man Please..!!! … and carb friendly…

Bugg :D very, very tasty treat ….

Thank you to everyone. What is peanut butter pie? All of your ideas sound wonderful and now the hard part will be to choose which dessert will be served.

Thanks again for your suggestions! You guys are all great!

I have a few that I like. One is Jello Sugar-Free Instant chocolate pudding. It has a few carbs but I cut the 1/2 cup servings down to 1/4 cup to bring it down to about 3-4 carbs. I take the mix and add in 1 cup of cream diluted with one cup water, add a little flavored extract (I use peppermint) and beat it till it's a really thick mousse, pour in 1/4 cup bowls, then sprinkle flax meal on top, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for about an hour. I also do the same with the banana cream flavor mix and throw in a few tsps of unsweetened cocoa with a bit of Truvia and the same cream mixture - it comes out fantastic! Using 1/4 bowls, I usually get between 6-8 servings from one package.

You can also use my grandmother's South Philly cheesecake recipe - 2 bars Philly cream cheese, 2 eggs, Truvia (to taste) and a little anise, bake in 1/4 glass bowls at 350 for about 5-10 minutes, just enough to get the egg cooked. Don't let the top brown, or it will come out firm - it is meant to be kind of gooey. Hope you try them and enjoy! :D

Sounds great, but don't you need to cook it some because of the raw eggs? :confused:

Raw eggs are actually quite healthy. Cooking an egg changes the protein's chemical structure and actually destroys many nutrients in the egg.

There is a risk of salmonella, yes. But it's very RARE, and in HEALTHY individuals salmonella is rarely a problem. Most don't even notice it's presence, believe it or not. (If you have a compromised immune system, or other reasons to avoid salmonella, then don't take the chance, I guess. But I have no problems with raw eggs.)

And many people don't cook an egg enough anyway... For example, eating an egg cooked sunny-side up (with a runny yolk) isn't actually cooked enough to kill salmonella anyway... Most of us have eaten eggs that way...

The best way to avoid problems is eat FRESH eggs, preferably organic and free-range rather than from a large mass-production farm.

no its basically like a classic French mousse...not cooked...thats why I make sure I use really fresh eggs...I add all the flavourings to the yolks...and usually some colour....so peppermint ice cream for my son I add a couple of drops of flavourings and green food colouring...its amazing...you just have to remember to gently fold...its stunning...really light and low carb....also I like it as I know all the ingredients....lol I dont buy anything with ingredients I cant pronounce

real mayonnaise is also made with raw eggs :) that's probably French too!

and yes I do get very fresh eggs...in the 70s everyone made mousse that way...now people use gelatin...and I guess vegans would use agar agar...
