Cherries Jubilee Fool Trifles
Greek yogurt, cream, and freshly pitted cherries are the stars of this creamy, yet light, dessert. Oh and a little rum too.
Creamy Frozen Raspberry Mousse
All it takes to create this mousse is some quark, sugar, raspberries, fresh lime juice, and almonds. Yep, it’s that simple.
Double Chocolate Mocha Mousse
Not only is this an easy, low-carb treat, but it’s also low on sugar. Talk about a win-win.
Green Tea Coconut Ice Cream
You can eat ice cream when you’re on a low-carb diet — just make it vegan. This extra-creamy option uses coconut and almond milk.
No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Bars
These low-carb bars don’t require any baking whatsoever. All you need is a microwave and a little patience while they harden in the fridge.
Tofu Chocolate Pudding
To create a healthier — and protein-packed! — version of chocolate pudding, just blend silken tofu and cacao powder. “Tofu is surprisingly low in carbs,” Goodman says. “And by using a protein powder like PlantFusion Chocolate Brownie Protein Powder that has a rich chocolatey flavor, you’ll save on carbs and sugar.”

Did somebody say brownies? This version cuts carbs by using minimal flour and a whole lot of beets.
