Atkins dessert ideas

People on the Atkins diet have to restrict themselves from eating nearly all carbohydrates. While many desserts are full of stodgy carbs, there are many others that you can eat while on this diet. Remember that while the Atkins diet is low in carbohydrates, it is actually high in some fats, such as cheese and cream.

Chocolate cinnamon ice cream sandwich

Just because you are on the Atkins diet doesn't mean you have to pass on ice cream sandwiches. Make this option, which contains only 3 g (0.1 oz) of carbs. Make the filling for this ice cream sandwich using 50 ml (1.4 cup) of protein chocolate shake mix. Add 125 ml (1/2 cup) of whipping cream and a little ground cinnamon to the mix and whip it. For the sandwich part, cut four sugar-free chocolate almond bars in half lengthwise with a serrated knife. Put the shake mix in between the halves and then place the sandwiches in the freezer for about four hours.

Cranberry parfait

Create this sweet and tart parfait for your next dessert. In a blender, mix together 250 ml (1 cup) each of fresh cranberries, sugar-free vanilla syrup and unsweetened strawberry milkshake mix. In a separate bowl, mix together two packets of unflavoured gelatin with 250 ml (1 cup) of water. Let it stand for a minute. On the hob, place 500 ml (2 cups) of water and four sugar substitute packages in a saucepan and let it come to a boil. Add the hot water to the gelatin mixture and stir until the gelatin dissolved. Add the berry purée to the water and stir until everything is combined. Pour the mixture into serving cups and leave them in the fridge for about three hours, or until they set.

Strawberries with French cream

This elegant dessert is yummy and classy enough to serve for a dinner party. Wash 1.1 litres (2 pints) of large strawberries. Serve them whole, or cut them in halves or quarters. Mix together 15 ml (1 tbsp) of sugar substitute and 125 ml (1/2 cup) of whipping cream. Beat the mixture together until peaks form. Fold in45 ml (3 tbsp) of sour cream to give the whipped cream a slightly sour flavour.
