No Sugar, No Carb Healthy Snacks

Love the Pudding!

Love the Pudding!

I seem to find myself in the clutches of a strange and peculiar diet– No carbs or sugars in any form except vegetable and  very limited fruit, oh and limited meat/no dairy too.  I have to admit it is a great diet plan, and if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m not sure what my ailment is (yeast? rogue bacteria?), I would be completely happy with the results.  I’ve lost 20 pounds.  How did I do it?  Short of moving to a deserted island and eating coconuts and seaweed in peace, it’s tough without the tools.  I have 4 wonderful temptation stoppers, that everyone enjoys including the kids!  But don’t tell the squeamish ones the secret ingredients.

Nut Butter Fudge

Nut Butter Fudge

Nut Butter Fudge:   Creamy, sweet.  You can use any nut butter you like.

  • 10 dates
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 5 drops vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Blend dates and melted coconut oil.  Mix together all other ingredients.  Pour into a pan lined with plastic wrap.  (No problem since we aren’t going to cook it.)  Put it in the refrigerator for a couple hours.  It is easy to pull out of the pan with the plastic.  Chop into the shapes you want and eat.  I keep some covered in the fridge for times of temptation.  One piece is all that is needed.

 

Chocolate Banana Pie:

This is like a chocolate banana cream pie.  The crust is out of this world too.

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp stevia leaves
  • Walnut Crust (recipe follows)

Blend, pour into crust and refrigerate. (Double for thick pie)

Walnut Crust:

  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 10 dates
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal

Blend walnuts, salt; add flaxseed, dates then oil.  Press into pie pan.  Bake 325 for 10 minutes. Watch it closely it will burn fast and your oven may be different. Cool

 

Banana "Vanilla" Milkshake

Banana "Vanilla" Milkshake

“Vanilla” Banana Milk Shake:

This is so very close to a milkshake.  There is a lot here so you will have to share.  It has a hugh amount of potassium (both coconut and bananas are high in it.)

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 5 drops vanilla stevia

Add ice and Blend
