Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake

 itemprop

Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake – doesnt that sound delicious?!?


Ever since I lived in America Cheesecake definitely is one of my favouite desserts to eat. Not sure if someone has ever been to the Cheesecake Factory in the US, but it is one of those places I like to spend a lot of time in when I’m there. 

They have all kinds of magical cheesecake varieties you could only have imagined in your wildest dreams there. 

 

However, since normal cheesecake unfortunately is not very fitness approved or healthy I wanted to develop a recipe that still tastes amazing, but is way better for you than the sugary stuff you get to buy elsewhere. 

 

How I sweeten the cheesecake


Since I am also super fond of vegan recipes I took on the challenge to make a vegan cheesecake with delicious blueberries. I used Xylit as a sweetener which has 40% less calories than regular sugar. Also there is no kind of flour, oil or butter in this recipe, which makes it extra fitness approved! 🙂 

This recipe is really easy to make. All you need is a good blender. Since this is a raw cake you won’t even have to bake it. The cashew blueberry filling tastes so incredibly good – you will see! I would pick this cheesecake anytime over a regular one.

Low Carb Filled Zucchini

 itemprop

Today I would like to share one of my favorite low carb recipes with you. Let’s make some low carb filled zucchini – perfect for your fitness diet! 

This is super easy and fast to make, doesn’t have a lot of calories and is perfect if you are on a low carb diet. I was even eating this while I was on my ketogenic diet. It will provide you with clean protein and good fiber through the zucchini.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like to fill zucchinis but you can also use sweet potatoes, pumpkin, peppers or whatever veggie comes to your mind. Lately I have been seeing those awesome round zucchinis. They look so cute and are the perfect size. 

What I also like about this recipe is that you really don’t need a lot of ingredients or time to make it. You literally just throw everything together in a bowl and fill the zucchinis with it. 

But lets jump into the recipe:

How to make a unicorn nice cream bowl

 itemprop

We all see them on Instagram – the famous unicorn super smoothie bowls. It always looks like a magical creation sent from a different galaxy for you to enjoy.

Today I want to show you with this very simple blogpost how easy it is to make a unicorn bowl all by yourself. There are only a couple of simple tricks you need to know in order to make a beautiful creation and impress all your friends with it.

What I love about nice cream is that it is really so super easy to make. It takes about ten minutes and you have a delicious low fat snack. Working with frozen stuff however is also a great challenge – at least for me – as ice cream simply will start melting and you need to be fast before everything runs away.

But a little practice and soon enough you will be making the most magical bowls yourself.

So lets jump right into the recipe 🙂

This is what you will need:

3 frozen bananas 

100ml any kind of milk 

4g of blue spirulina powder

4g of pink pitaya powder 

And that is literally it. If you want you can add an extra scoop of protein, coconut flakes or a teaspoon of almond butter. There are many ways you can pimp the basic recipes.

There is only one thing you need to prepare before you can start making the recipe. You will need to cut the bananas into slices and freeze them overnight. Also, you will need four bowls. Make sure to also put them into the freezer so they will be cold once you start working with the nice cream.

Now pour the milk into the blender and add a couple of banana slices. Start mixing and keep adding more frozen bananas. You might have troubles mixing it at first. Stop the blender, use a spoon to mix up the frozen blend and start mixing again until you get a very smooth consistency.

Take out the cold bowls from the freezer. Divide the nice cream into three different bowls.

Now its time to add the color. Put a teaspoon of pink pitaya powder into the first bowl and mix it well until you get a beautiful pink color.

Add the blue color to the second bowl and again stir well. Take the third bowl and add a bit of the blue and a bit of the pink powder until you will get a nice purple color.

Now you need the fourth bowl. Divide the bowl mentally up into thirds and pour in the different colors from different sides. Take a spoon and slowly swirl the colors together.

Almost done! The final step is decorating your bowl. You can use bananas, strawberries, blueberries, granola, coconut flakes, sprinkles, macarons and what ever else you can think of!

Now quickly take a pic – it melts fast. and enjoy your beautiful bowl.

If you try this recipe please send me a picture of your bowl. I would love to see your wonderful creation.

Keto Bounty Bars – a low carb snack!

Keto Bounty Bars

Since I am currently on a keto diet, which is a very extreme form of a low carb diet, I wanted to share one of my favorite sweet recipes with you. When you are on keto it is seems to be quite hard to still satisfy your sweet tooth, however, with these delicious low carb keto bounty bars you won’t even miss the real sugar!  <3

My take on a keto diet

Being on a low carb diet can be quite tricky. Especially when you are trying to eat something sweet. On a ketogenic diet especially you have to cut out most of your carbs and replace them with fats. These tasty keto bounty bars will provide you with a good amount of healthy fats from the coconut. Your nutrition intake should be somewhere between eating 60-70% fat each day. Research says proteins should take up 25% and carbs only 5%.

The longest I have been on a keto diet was for 5 weeks. It has helped me tremendously to fix a bacterial problem I had in my stomach as the bacteria was survived by eating carb. Once I cut out all the carbs I was able to starve the harmful bacteria and was fine again. So a keto diet can actually have great health benefits. I would not suggest this diet to be your general way of eating though. I find it to extreme and at some point I believe your body will be missing valuable nutrients you get from eating fresh fruit for example. 

Keto Bounty Bars

How to make keto bounty bars

So, this is another really easy recipe. As you know my recipes usually don’t take longer than 15 minutes and this also a really quick one – no cooking skills required!

First you start out by making the filling. Simply put all ingredients together and mix well until you get a crumbly mixture. It should be moist and stick together. Shape the filling into little bar shapes and place them on a baking sheet. Let them harden in the fridge for 2 hours. They should be really cold when you take them out! You can even put the keto bounty bars in the freezer for a bit so they will harden faster. 

Ketogenic Bounty Bars

The next step is to make the chocolate coating. The darker your chocolate is the less carbs you will have. Of course a 99% dark chocolate also tastes bitter. I usually shoot somewhere between 75 and 80%. 

Melt the chocolate in a medium heat proof bowl. I usually do it in the microwave because it is faster, but if you want to do it the proper way then melt it over the steam of boiling water or at 45 degrees in the oven. I like to add a bit of coconut oil to my coating so it is easier to distribute over the keto bounty bars and also hardens better after.

Low Carb bounty bars

Take out the cold bars from the fridge or freezer and dip them into the chocolate. Let the superfluous chocolate drip off the bars and gently place them on the baking sheet again. If you want you can sprinkle them with coconut flakes now. Best you let them cool in the fridge again for another hour. 

You see how easy this recipe is. Done are your easy keto bounty bars. 🙂 I hope you will try this low carb recipe soon!
