Zero carb sweets?

Does anyone have a zero carb sweet recipe they know of? I'm sooo PMSing and craving something sweet. I've almost eatin my daily carb intake and I haven't had supper yet.

Help

Why not have a cup of decaf tea made with stevia / SF syrup for zero carbs, or Splenda for close to zero? By far the safest choice, but you can check out the recipe board for more options.

There is a huge debate on whether the Atkins bars are appropriate for induction or if they are ever appropriate given that they deduct both sugar alcohols and glycerine from the carb count. I can only say that my experience with them has been that I can eat them -- IN MODERATION -- and I am still in ketosis and still losing weight. Also, they are DELICIOUS...

Also, I really love the sugar-free jello (strawberry) and I found some zero carb Land-O-Lakes whipped cream (made from heavy cream) and the combo of these two are delicious!

I make the mock brownie and top it w/ a spoonful of whipped cream (homemeade w/ stevia) and it is delish...and super easy! I use one egg, one tbs of butter, 2 tbs of DARK cocoa powder and a few drops of stevia w/ some SF Davinci syrup. Whip it all together and nuke it for 1.5 mins or until firm. I put it right in the freezer to let it set and chill...it is great!

Isn't the jelly beans a bit high in carbs??? I am a newbie.. but I was thinking even if food is sugar free you still have to watch out for the carbs? I don't know though, like I said I am new at this..

I subtract sugar alcohols and fiber...so each serving of jellybeans(35 beans per serving) are 4grams of carbs.

I can't eat a whole serving, though..sugar alcohols make my tummy 'talk'...I eat 12 beans and call it good.

Sugar alcohols do have carbs-not as many as regular sugar but 1/2 to 3/4 should be counted.

"There are some claims that sugar alcohols don't have carbs, and therefore don't count; that they can be completely subtracted if listed on the label. This statement is not entirely "false" but it is misleading. Sugar alcohols do have carbs, and approx. 1/2 to 3/4 the calories of regular sugar. They are more slowly and incompletely absorbed from the small intestine than sugar, thus producing a much smaller and slower rise in blood sugar ... and consequently insulin. But this is a YMMV thing. Some Type 1 diabetics have reported that they sense an immediate "sugar rush" from eating even a small amount. Others notice no change, and absolutely no effect on ketosis."

Some people count ALL carbs, other subtract fiber and sugar alcohols (like me) it just depends on how your body reacts to it. My insulin levels don't rise w/sugar alcohols, some people's do...

Acceptable Foods

If you are on induction and the SF candy, or anything else for that matter, is not on the acceptable food list, stay away from it….

Try to stick with the cream cheese sweetened with SF Syrups sweetened with splenda. But remember only 3 - 4 oz. of cheese a day....

For something crispy and sweet try Jicama It is sweet to me and pretty good….

I am sure a few small bites of forbidden foods won’t hurt once in a while but I don’t think you should be straying away from the food list every day. Remember that Dr. A says one small bite is the kiss of death..

[COLOR="SeaGreen"]If I buy sugar free candy, I only use it when its an EMERGENCY!! But the sugar free Jelly Belly's are wonderful!!! I only eat maybe 3 or 4 beans a day!! Thats hardly any carbs considering 17 is a serving! Desperate measures, calls for desperate measures!!!

Also you can whip some sugar free jello dry with heavy whipping cream!! Hardly no carbs in that either. I keep this mixed up and just eat a spoon full at a time. [/COLOR]

sugar-free gum
blueberry or other sweet tea w/splenda
crystal light frozen pops
TB of chunky peanut butter <-- this works so well for my cravings and if my energy feels low
vanilla atkins shake blended w/ice, nutmeg, & vanilla <-- tastes a bit like eggnog

This isn't "zero carb" but it's cheap and fast. I like the fat free hot cocoa packets (the generic ones at the grocery stores here have 4 carbs per packet). I mix 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream and the rest water, then heat it in the microwave. Mix in the cocoa packet and that's it! It's rich, creamy and chocolatey!

Net carbs: 6 (4 in the cocoa packet and 2 in the 1/4 cup of heavy cream).

What about cocoa nut bark

1/4 cup coconut oil (melted just a few seconds in microwave. You just want it liquid, not hot.)
1 TBSP Cocoa powder (I get mine at Aldi and it's 2 carb per TBSP)
Stevia to taste

I melt the oil a bit and add the cocoa powder. Add a few drops of liquid stevia and taste. Add more stevia if needed. Pour into a plastic (I use square) bowl. You only want it about 1/4 of an inch thick. Freeze for 10 minutes. Take out of freezer and crack it. The whole recipe with the cocoa I use is 2 TOTAL carbs and I never eat it all in one day. Store in freezer.

Or Coconut Fudge

3 TBSP coconut oil (room temp or chilled a bit. You want it semi-solid)
1 oz cream cheese
1 TBSP cocoa powder (adjust if you like it darker or more like milk chocolate)
Stevia to taste

Cream the oil and cream cheese. Add cocoa and stevia to taste. Spread in pan and chill. Store in fridge.

Here's what I've been enjoying... Its from Lindas Low Carb Menu's

CREAM CHEESE CLOUDS (I call them frozen frosting!!)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (I use a little less than this cuz the first time I made them exactly and thought I could "feel" the butter in my mouth and didn't care for that)
1/2-3/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda *
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or other flavoring (I put 1/8 teaspoon mint extract and a drop of green coloring)

Beat everything with an electric mixer until fluffy. Drop by bite-size (bite size is the KEY! don't make bigger than that, they are too sweet and really a quarter sized drop is perfect!) spoonfuls onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, at least 1 hour. Store in the freezer and eat frozen.

Makes 24 clouds

* I didn't think they were quite sweet enough with 1/2 cup so I used liquid Splenda to equal 3/4 cup granular. The counts are based on 3/4 cup Splenda.

NOTE: You can store these in the refrigerator and they will hold their shape quite well as long as they are good and cold.

With granular Splenda:
Per Cloud: 70 Calories; 7g Fat; 1g Protein; 1g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 1g Net Carb
Per 2 Clouds: 140 Calories; 14g Fat; 2g Protein; 2g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 2g Net Carbs

With liquid Splenda:
Per 2 Clouds: 134 Calories; 14g Fat; 2g Protein; .5g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; .5g Net Carbs
Per 4 Clouds: 268 Calories; 29g Fat; 3g Protein; 1g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 1g Net Carb
