Mia, who is one of our superstar weight loss patients asked me if we had some really good recipes for a butter cream and recipe for a quick breakfast for those mornings when there is never enough time to prepare a breakfast.
So here are 2 recipes. One is for a pralines and vanilla butter cream and the other is a nice chia seed pudding that can be eaten for breakfast or any other time of the day.
This is one of my most favorite low carb recipes. It is a low-carb version of a pralines and vanilla buttercream. This recipe makes about 4 servings and each of them has approximately 2 g of carbohydrates per serving.
- Pralines and Vanilla Buttercream
- 1/2 pound of unsalted butter
- vanilla extract – 2 teaspoons
- soy sauce – 1 – 2 teaspoons
- to make this recipe a little bit more sweet you can add 1 – 2 teaspoons of a sugar substitute such as Stevia or swerve and even erythritol.
First we are going to take 2 ounces of the butter and heat it in a small saucepan until it foams up a bit and you will see golden brown speckles. Just make sure they you do not burn the butter. Just before you start to see the golden brown speckles add your soy sauce and mix everything well. The addition of the soy sauce to the recipe gives it a very unique delicious flavor. Plus it also adds to the beautiful coloring of our cream.
The next step is to pour the butter and soy sauce combination into a pans and blend in the rest of the butter a little at a time, and add your sweetener to this as well and continue to blend – mix until all of the butter is blended and has nice fluffy peaks. You can either do this by hand or if you have a blender it makes the process much more easy. When this is finished just add the vanilla extract and once again stir everything together.
This recipe is so tasty that sometimes I will have just this by itself as a dessert or as a snack. What you can also add it over top of pancakes, waffles and almost anything that you could think of. You can also add ginger, cinnamon, cocoa and even some fruit to this and enjoy it as a snack.
If you are one of our weight loss patients you know that most mornings my breakfast is a nice cup of coffee with some half-and-half or heavy cream and a packet Stevia with an added teaspoon of coconut butter. But there are some mornings that I just need to eat something a little bit more than a cup of coffee. Personally I really like to have a low-carb type of pudding for a quick and easy breakfast. So one or two nights a week we will make this pudding and then just let it sit in the refrigerator overnight for whenever I am really hungry in the morning.
This is really one of the easiest recipes that we make, And it only takes about 5 minutes to prepare. Now remember you should let this refrigerate for 4 hours or more; that’s why we like to make it at night.
So here is the recipe for my Chia pudding:
This recipe makes one serving and it has approximately 5 g of carbohydrates.
- three-quarter cup of unsweetened coconut milk
- Chia seeds – 2 tablespoons
- vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon
Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan and stir it well. When it’s totally mixed just pour in into a jar and let it sit in your refrigerator preferably overnight. Just make sure that you refrigerate this for at least four hours otherwise it will be to liquid for you to enjoy. The next morning just open up the refrigerator and you can spoon the pudding into a bowl. I will usually add a little bit more of the coconut milk and just eat it that way or sometimes I will just add a little bit of fruit. Also I do enjoy adding a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder, ginger or cinnamon to this in the morning.
