Valentine Dining


The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – although this is an old saying no one can deny the importance of food. This Valentine’s Day couples are more happy to share a romantic dinner for the other half and indulge in sweet desserts.

It is not without reason that this holiday of lovers is famous for delicacies made of…. chocolate. Thanks to the cocoa (so the more, the better!) chocolate is an aphrodisiac that is rich in stimulating phenylethylamine (which quickly releases endorphins) and theobromine, or caffeine, that increases activity and strengthen.

Probably a lot of you think, what, if I am on a diet? Don’t worry, we have some great Valentine snack suggestions for you to prepare that will be perfect for your next romantic evening. These are all tasty AND healthy!

Don’t forget that savory & healthy food is one of the best gifts that you can give to your loved one. These ideas are delicious and full of aphrodisiacs that will stimulate your evening. 😊

So let’s start the compositions of potential plates

  • Chocolate is one of the best Valentine’s aphrodisiacs. And yes ! You can still be on the diet and use this wonderful ingredient to make your valentine dessert. You just have to make sure to use real chocolate without too much sugar. One effective idea for sweets are chocolate covered strawberries. You only need a half cup of melted dark chocolate with two tablespoons of coconut oil and some sweetener of your choice. One of our favorites for example is made from monk fruit and of course the strawberries are sweet too. Now dip them in the melted chocolate and voilà the dessert is ready 🙂
  • A bowl of natural forest fruit like berries will also be perfect. They taste great and are simply very healthy! Rich in vitamins, minerals, macronutrients and micronutrients fruits are always the best.
  • Slices of ham and meats with cheese are also great because they contain a lot of protein which are useful for rebuilding and strengthening.
  • Mixed cheese platter. Parmesan Gorgonzola, and Ricotta are the the most recommended. Parmesan lowers blood pressure and also is low in calories. Gorgonzola is characterized by low cholesterol levels. Ricotta thanks to light texture and relatively high moisture content, is one of the least caloric cheeses.
  • Of course, don’t let your Valentine’s plate be without your favorite nuts. They are so full of benefits that we do not need to stress their health properties.

As all of you can see there are plenty of ideas out there and we hope you will use some these options for your Valentines day.

We wish all our readers a lot of love.

More Than Just Keto Ice Cream: ChocoMint


ChocoMint Keto Ice Cream

Summer is in full swing ! The weather really pampers us, we would like to say, the sun is exceptionally gracious this season. During the hot days, we are desperately looking for the best ideas to cool ourselves down. Like always BeLite is on alert and knows one trick that is really quite good. This will not only cool you down but also offers a great taste that will put a huge smile on your face. It will definitely make sure that your scorching concern will be a stranger to you now forever. Our new summer recipe will conquer your heart but not your weight, so don’t worry, and get ready for culinary delight that you will surely love.

First of all, the process of making ice cream can seem very difficult but it is not. You only need five ingredients and maybe a little patience because the freezing process still takes its sweet time… the sun is beating down on us so lets go ahead!

Here’s what we need :

1 1/4 cups of Heavy Cream

1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1/2 Teaspoon of Mint Extract

3 Egg Yolks

1/4 Cup of Erythritol (or equivalent of your favorite non-caloric sweetener)

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder

Preparation :

Heat the heavy cream and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat until simmering, remove from the heat and allow to cool to around to room temperature.

Whisk the egg yolks with the erythritol until the yolks are pale yellow, add the cocoa and mix well.

Whisk half a cup of the warm cream mixture into the eggs, then add the remaining cream and whisk well. It is very important to make sure the cream is only warm and not hot. If the cream is too hot it can cook the eggs and make the ice cream chunky!

Next pour the mix back into the saucepan and place over low heat while stirring continuously to thicken. Make sure to keep the heat low, you don’t want to scramble the eggs. This step can take up to 20 minutes. The custard will be ready when the mixture coats the back of a spoon.

Pour the custard mixture it into a serving container and place in the fridge to help it cool down before freezing. Stir this mixture every ten minutes. Depending on the size of your container it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to completely chill.

If you have an ice cream machine pour the cold custard inside and let the machine work its magic. When the ice cream is the proper consistency of soft-serve pour it into a container and place it in the freezer. You will have delicious ice cream very soon! If you don’t have a machine you can just keep freezing the chilled custard and it will still be ice cream! But be sure to stir it every fifteen minutes as it freezes for best enjoyment.

Enjoy and stay cool.

To start, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of cooked and mashed sweet potato

  • 1 teaspoon of honey or coconut palm sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/16 teaspoon of salt
  • Optional: milk (any type), to thin batter if needed

Once you have your ingredients together, it’s time to get cooking! Simply mix all the materials well in a large bowl and beat till a smooth batter develops. Once done, spread evenly over a heated skillet and flip accordingly. Enjoy!
