Since starting keto, I've had very few cravings. The fat is where it's at, people! Not only do healthy fats keep you feeling full, they help prevent cravings, too.* That said, at certain times (ahem!), I do still crave chocolate. Once, in desperation, I tried eating baker's chocolate with ZERO sugar in it. I won't do that again. Ick! There is also Stevia-sweetened Lilly's brand chocolate, which many people rave over, but I haven't gotten around to ordering any yet.

So one day, in desperation, I whipped up my own chocolatey creation. Not only did it turn out delish, but it totally knocked out my chocolate craving!  

You can vary the experience of eating this quick and easy dessert according to how long you keep it in the freezer. A short freeze will give it a very icy/slushy texture, whereas a longer freeze makes it hard (so you'll need to thaw it just a bit before serving.) Give it a try!

Chocolate Frozen Icy - keto, low carb, LCHF, and sugar free.

1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream**
2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
4 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon stevia (I use Pyure)   

Only four ingredients!

1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Pour it all in and whisk.
2. Pour into three different, small ramekins, coffee mugs, or cute little ice cream dishes. Place in the freezer until the desired consistency is achieved.

* Whether you experience cravings on keto is really a matter of how you eat before you start keto. I was on a lower carb/sugar whole foods diet.








** Be sure to read the label on your heavy whipping cream (sometimes just called "heavy cream"). Some brands contain more carbs that others; choose a brand that says it has zero carbs. However, do note that it will have some carbs - the amount is just under 1 carb per serving, which means it doesn't require reporting on the label.
