The summer heat is persistent! We have shared many recipes for ice cream and ice pops in the past. They were all delicious and low in carbs. Frozen treats can be a great way to stay cool and refreshed when the weather is sweltering. So today, we are sharing more frozen delights. This time we’re staying away from ice cream and ice pops but keeping everything low in carbs and fat!
These are a different sort of a treat. A part of us wants to call them fat bombs, but they aren’t high in fat. Instead, they are just delicious, creamy, coffee-flavored morsels that will satisfy a craving for a sweet treat and give you a small coffee boost in the afternoon. A serving has 74.6 calories, 1.9 grams of carbs, 1.2 grams of fiber and 7.8 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
A few years ago, Ben and Jerry’s brought their famous cookie dough to the freezer section without the ice cream. There are a couple of problems with it. It’s pretty expensive per serving, and it’s high in carbs. It’s way better to make your own at home for less money and way fewer carbs. We love frozen cookie dough, and everyone should be able to enjoy it! This recipe calls for a raw egg. Be sure to use a pasteurized egg to reduce your risk of salmonella. A serving has 102 calories, four grams of carbs, one gram of fiber and nine grams of fat. Get the recipe.
Ice box pies are a wonderful dessert. You get a pie without baking that hits the sweet spot on a hot day. This one is sharp and sweet! It does use thickened eggs to make a custard that requires heat from a stovetop. But, other than that, you don’t need to cook anything. The pie crust is frozen to harden it, not baked! You are sure to love this delicious frozen pie! A serving has 240 calories, six grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and 23 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
If you are a fan of Christmas bark, welcome to summer! This summer variant uses jam, berries, pistachios, and sugar-free chocolate chips to make a beautiful, sweet, low-carb dessert. It’s sort of a deconstructed yogurt parfait. You could eat this for breakfast and not feel guilty! It couldn’t be easier to make. You spread yogurt on parchment paper, layer on your toppings and freeze it for three hours. Then you can enjoy the results. A serving has 69 calories, nine grams of carbs, 6.3 grams of fiber and 2.9 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
Hot summer days won’t last forever. But, if you try these recipes, you might find that one will become a favorite in your house that sticks around long after the hot weather has passed. We love them, and we hope you will too!
