Okay I am in love. Frozen strawberry Yogart

Greek yogart large Dannon nonfat container drained over night
1-2tsp stawberry jello
splenda to taste
splash of almond milk (I will use more next time)

I put all this into my ice cream maker. It was a bit on thick side and will next time add in more almond milk. It was delicious. Really hit the spot of ice cream. I can think of so many differant combinations from this.

dd8 ate half of it on me.

I am wondering if I really need the ice cream maker. I am going to try next time to blend all the above and put it in the freezer and see if that works just as good

We must have been thinking along the same lines, Jodi!! I was thinking about ice cream tonight, so I tried this:

1/4 c. ff yogurt
1/4 c. ff ricotta
2 pkts splenda
cinnamon -- don't know how much, but I use lots!!!

Mixed it all together and froze it for two hours. Just the right consistency for me. Might try freezing it for 3 or 4 hours next time and see how it is. Hits the spot tonight!!

plain ff yogurt. Can't afford the greek yogurt, though one of these times I'd like to try it.

I love trying new recipes!!! I want to try some more, but it's too hot to cook!

Lenise...Have you ever drained your FF yogurt. Thats what I did the other day to make the ice cream. I did it over night and came out just like buying the container of it. Saved money

I read a hint about that -- especially if you're going to freeze it -- but I haven't tried it. Isn't it supposed to be more like Greek yogurt if you drain the ff stuff? Can't remember where I read that!!

The longer you drain it the thicker it is. I like mine drained for a 24 full hours. It reduces the amount of yogurt by half.

Thanks for that last tidbit! I was wondering how much yogurt would be left.

Last week Martins had their brand of nonfat yogurt on sale. 2-24 oz containers for $3.00!!! Wish I would have extra room in the refrigerator to buy lots!!

Hi! I have a question about draining yoghurt! If you drain ff natural yoghurt does the carb count become lower--like the carb count for greek yoghurt. Is that why people drain it or is just because it's a lot cheaper than buying greek yoghurt?! Thanks!

I'm sure it changes the nutritional information I'm just not sure how. I found all the information on full fat yogurt but not fat free.

I just realized my yogurt containers were 32 oz too. Yeah, I had more than i thought!!!

Well, since I forgot my oat bran this morning and I don't have any more ff ricotta, I tried a new mixture.

ff cream cheese
ff yogurt (about twice as much yogurt as cream cheese)
cinnamon
splenda
dash of vanilla

And I stuck it in the freezer. That's my dessert for tonight!! So we'll see how it turns out!

I'm seriously tempted to buy one or both of these by Dana Carpender, the author of the 2nd book mentioned above. If you own one or both of these, please share your thoughts!
  • 15 Minute Low-Carb Recipes: Instant Recipes for Dinners, Desserts, and More! by Dana Carpender. Just previewing the early pages about stocking the kitchen is very helpful with hints like: put your low-carb thickener in a dedicated salt shaker. Why didn't I think of that?
  • 200 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes: Healthy Dinners That Are Ready When You Are! by Dana Carpender. The crock pot is a great friend to the lean meats of the Dukan diet.
When I started lc at the end of January, I purchased the Atkins book and Dana Carpender's 1001 Low-Carb Recipes. I have been enjoying this book as it seems to have a bit of everything in it. My family (not lc) and I have liked everything I have tried in it so far. Most of her recipes seem to have a pretty short list of ingredients, which I love.

Dukan Herb Mayonnaise

1 raw egg yolk
1 TB Dijon mustard
3 TB non fat fromage frais or quark (fat free greek style yogurt will be fine too)
1 TB chopped herbs of your choice
salt and black pepper

Put the egg yolk in a mixing bowl and combine with the mustard. Season with salt and pepper and add the herbs. Gradually mix in the fromage frais, quark or greek yogurt, stirring continuously. Mayonnaise must be refrigerated.


Alternative oil-free Mayonnaise

1 hardboiled egg
2 oz non fat fromage frais, quark or greek yogurt
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
salt and black pepper

Crush the hard boiled eggs with a fork and mix into the non fat fromage frais, quark or greek yogurt. Then add the mustard, salt and pepper and herbs or garlic if you wish. Mayonnaise must be refrigerated.


Bearnaise sauce

2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 small shallot, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon tarragon, fresh and finely chopped or crushed according to taste
2 egg yolks

Put the vinegar in a bowl in a saucepan over simmering water, then add the chopped shallot and tarragon. Slowly warm over a low heat. Let the vinegar mixture cool a bit, then pour over the two egg yolks, beating well as if making mayonnaise.


Vinaigrette Maya

1 TB Dijon mustard
5 TB balsamic vinegar
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 garlic clove
7-8 fresh or frozen chopped basil leaves
salt and black pepper

Take an old jar and fil it with all the ingredients, mixing very thouroughly. If you like garlic, leave a clove to marinate in the bottom of the jar.
Thanks for sharing all of these. I want to try all of them. What I like most about them, is not only the short list of ingredients, but the small amounts they make.

That's always a good things. I hate these recipes that have things I don't normally have in the house and SO much in them that it's overwhelming.

I posted this on our regular thread and then realized I should put it here. I found this recipe on a site, but I haven't tried it yet.

Quick N Easy Cookie

1/8 t. cinnamon
2 T. oat bran
1 T. ff milk
1 pkt splenda

Mix all ingredients together and shape into a cookie. Microwave on high for one minute on a microwave safe dish (do not use a paper plate).

From what I understand, draining yogurt reduces the carbs because most of the carbs are in the whey that you drain off.

amazinggrace thanks for the link. I found this Vietnamese Beef Dukan Diet Recipe and I'm making it now. I'm gonna add some onions. Onions are fine, right? As long as it's not too much. I didn't know that soy sauce is okay in place of salt! Then I bet fish sauce is okay too. Yay! Yum!

Just a personal taste, I don't like the greek yogurt, but LOVE my homemade plain yogurt. I like the tartness of the homemade and did not like the creamy and plain texture of the greek. But as you mentioned, you can drain the regular overnight in the frig and have a really thick spreadable texture. Thanks for all these wonderful and easy recipes!

I own both of the Dana Carpenter books and they are my staple--they stay in the kitchen next to the stove. I am on 17 day diet and most of the recipes can be tweaked.
