The Living Force
OK, so following on from this thread here , I thought it might be an idea to share our keto recipes, as most of the other threads on this topic are pre-keto. I'll start with Laura's great recipes:
Laura said:I invented a new way to get more fat last night:
Make deviled eggs and use homemade mayo PLUS a big chunk of softened butter to whip with the yolks to make the egg filling. And when I say big chunk, that's what I used! They were yummy and buttery tasting!
I can attest to the absolute yumminess of the shake, as I made it this evening. Maintaining a high fat intake while keeping the protein and carbs in check, AND keeping it tasty can be challenging. It would be great to build a Ketogenic recipe-book. Looking forward to hearing from you all :)Laura said:Another: if you tolerate coconut, use coconut cream, several egg yolks, big chunk of melted butter, vanilla, a small bit of xylitol, to make a FAT milkshake!
Just put the butter, xylitol (tsp) and coconut cream in a saucepan, bring ALMOST to a boil, take off the heat, beat in several egg yolks thoroughly, chill in fridge for a bit, and then maybe put in the blender before drinking or stir well.
You could also use it as a hot drink, like a warm vanilla milkshake.
Using cocoa is okay, but when you do that, you have to increase the xylitol to counter the bitterness of the chocolate and that sort of cancels out the super low carb state. With coconut cream and butter, you hardly need any xylitol.
Anyway, if you need to get a couple hundred grams of fat into you, this is one way.
