No carb dessert recipes??? Quick!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
If anyone has any ideas for a no carb dessert can you let me know asap?! A coworker of mine has been on the Atkins diet for a few months and lost a lot of weight and we are celebrating with a small party tomorrow. I signed up for dessert and unfortunately can't find any ideas!!

Please help!

My parents are on this, and they always eat jello with whip cream for desert......I don't know of any others, but it kinda sounds good if you are in the mood for jello..

I did a search as well and found tons of low carb recipes, but do you think there is anything for dessert that is NO carbs?? I wish I knew if she'd eat something that's just low carbs, but I'd hate to bring it and then she would say no. I know the only way the whole diet works is if you're really strict about it and so I've never seen her give in for anything, no matter how small.

Shoot! Thank you for trying to help me though!

I'm thinking some kind of cheesecake should be doable but can't find a recipe that for sure is no carbs.. .

Here is a link to the actual Atkins site. It has some great LOW carb recipes, but haven't come across anything with NO carbs. I'll keep searching and I'll let ya know.

..... tell her to take a carb pill or 2...
Why not take both jello & a small cheesecake?? There has to be something that you can make that has no sugars and carbs.

Sunni..You've got me stumped! I can not find one single no carb dessert anywhere!
I did find a Jello low carb recipe. I bet you could get low carb whipped cream for this and I read on my journey that you can get a "diet" version of Jello. Here's the recipe in case if you're interested.

Low-Carb Pie
adapted from several Jell-O recipes
2/3 cup boiling water
1-4 serving size any-flavor sugar-free gelatin dessert
1/2 cup cold water
ice cubes
8-ounce tub whipped topping, thawed

Stir boiling water into gelatin for at least 2 minutes. Add enough ice to cold water to make 1-1/4 cups. Stir into gelatin mixture until thickened. Discard any remaining ice. Stir in whipped topping with wire whisk until smooth. Pour into glass pie plate. Refrigerate until firm, about 6 hours. If desired, garnish with additional whipped topping.

Note: To add more flavor, use diet soda, in complementary flavors, instead of cold water. Also adding a teaspoon of extract adds few carbs and more flavor.

These are definitely "outside of the box" when it comes to desert, but here goes:

1. Filet Mignon wrapped in Bacon Medium Rare

2. Deviled Egg

3. Beef Jerkey

Or if you must go with the traditional desert, I think that the sugar free jello and sugar free whipped cream will work or Tofutti (I have never tried the latter). Good Luck, and remember it's the thought that counts!

I was watching a show called 30 minute meals tonight and the lady on there made a dessert that looked really yummy and healthy.

She cut a melon in half, scooped out the seeds, put a little lime juice in the bottom and then filled the melon half with some mango sherbert. It looked really yummy!
That might get a little expensive if everyone gets a whole melon half though. Maybe you could cut up some melons and serve the sherbert on the top of it.

Hey,

You can take plain port rinds use one or two packs of spelndia and cinammon, place in oven I think for 5 mins on 250. Taste just like the twist at taco bell.

if you make a baked cheesecake, using splenda instead of sugar & crushed roasted nuts for the crust, it's very low in carbs & also tastes pretty good. take whipped cream sweetened w/splenda & a bit of vanilla extract for dolloping on top [get a pint of the real stuff from the store & whip it yourself!].

If you just type in LowCarb deserts you'll find a TON of them. I used to make pumpkin custard (low carbs and no sugar) for the SO when he was on Atkins. I used Splenda and it turned out really well, actually.

Here's the site.

oh grasshopper, let me educate you....carbs are simple or complex, depending on chemical structure, and include sugars, starches, fiber...specifically fruits, sugars, pasta/breads/flours/grains. Even vegetables have carbs...so that some of us limit which veggies we eat.

So your low carb dessert would blow my blood sugar all to heck...fruit and ice cream indeed!
