I have fully tweaked this!
My wife likes it!
But it is NOT vegetable based ... treat it as a treat!
This recipe uses a mix of "healthy" sweeteners and limits caloric sweeteners and avoids sugar and fructose,
reducing excessive high glycemic value. Adjust to your tastes.
I do not like any more Xylitol nor Stevia than what I use here,
otherwise you could add more Stevia and reduce the amount of maple syrup.
(I also use organic, pastured butter, instead of EVOO, but that's not Zone friendly ...)
1/4 cup marscapone cheese
6 oz cup Greek Yogurt (0%)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp Craem of Tarter
1 tsp maple syrup
1 TBL Stevia (10 drops)
1 tsp Xylitol
6 Tbl raw, virgin cocoa powder
1 Tbl EVOO
In blender or bowl with mixer:
Add 1/4 cup marscaponee cheese and 6 oz 0% fat Greek (Oikos) plain yogurt.
Add 1 tsp vanilla extract, butter, chocolate, maple syrup, xylitol, and Stevia.
Separate 2 eggs. (Feed egg yolks to dogs, if desired...)
In large bowl add pinch of salt and 2 egg whites and beat 2/3 through, until nearly stiff.
Add 1/4 tsp Cream of Tarter and whip until stiff peaks.
Fold in chocolate mix base.
Dole out into 3 dishes of your choice.
Chill at least 2 hours.
Serving Size: 3
Fat 14 g (Sat 6 g)
Protein 11.1 g
Carbs (10.9 - 4.3) 6.6 g
4-2/3 blocks fat
2 blocks protein (nearly)
2/3 blocks net Carbs (add some favorable fruit!)
I have not tried adding a bit of Protein powder to get P up to 14 grams,
However I calculated that 2 TBL (roughly) of a good (o fat, 0 Carb plain) Protein Powder brings ea serving up to 14 g Protein.
And fat is as low as I could get it, without sacrificing too much flavor and texture.
But as my wife and I are both adding fat and dropping a little Carbs,
this works for us as is, and tastes good.
Our 20 year old daughter, I always let her have some, even remarked that for a "healthier" version, it tastes pretty good !!!
