If you are looking for a perfect after-dinner holiday treat to curb your sweet tooth then look no further. This is not your ordinary peppermint bark. This low-carb version combines coconut oil and cream cheese for a deliciously creamy white layer, while the chocolate layer is made using a technique similar to how you’d make low-carb sweetened condensed milk to create a silky, rich chocolate swirl. Plus the pecans and coconut or whatever else you throw on top is just bonus. 😉 This is one treat even your non-keto family members will be asking for again and again.

GOOOOOOD MORNING!! Are you a volume eater? Do you like strawberries? Do you like cake? Well then, your in the right place. If not then..well, goodbye. Haha, no but really you should all try this shake especially if you are low on calories and in need of something to really fill you up while meeting your protein needs for the day minus a ton of fat. This shake turned out hugeeeee! It filled 2 of my huge tall glasses, I literally am so full as I write this.
But not only that, this shake tastes AMAZING. Just like shortcake in a cup. It’s very light and fluffy but not watered down or too thin (I hate shakes that have no flavour!). It’s just the perfect amount of sweetness without being overly sweet and all you want to do is keep eating more of it…which isn’t a problem since there is SO MUCH. You can drink it through thick straw or use a spoon, your choice!
-10 mini ice cubes (or 92g)
-3/4 scoop(26g) cellucor Cor-fetti Cake Batter Whey(Could replace vanilla but this flavour is best!, this is what gives it part of the creamy cake-like taste!)
-112g frozen strawberries(around 3/4 cup)
-1 cup(240g) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese(TRUST ME, even if you hate it, you won’t even know it’s there and it’s part of the secret behind the creaminess of the shake)
-3 tbsp fat-free cool whip(14g)
-1/8 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp sweetener of choice (I used truvia, closest thing to sugar in my opinion!)
-1/2 tsp xanthan gum (maybe just under, I usually just measure with my hand and go by the texture but this is what creates volume and makes the shake smooth rather than icey!)
Directions: Combine all ingredients using a good blender and serve! This could easily make 2 servings.
