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.

Guiltless Sweet Potato Pancakes


There are countless of ways to drop weight. Some are better than others. Whether you are exercising or have opted for surgeries like the lap band or gastric bypass, any weight loss plan can and will be frustrating if it is not supported by a proper diet.

Sweet Potato Pancakes|BeLite Weight

Pancakes are undeniably delicious and filling, but they are also a great way to kill any weight loss diet. Packed with loads of carbs from the flour and calories from sugar, pancakes can throw off and ruin anyone’s diet. But, should we just give up on pancakes entirely? No way, they’re too good. Instead, try this healthy and delicious weight loss recipe for Sweet Potato Pancakes.

To start, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of cooked and mashed sweet potato
  • 1/3 cup of egg beaters or 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of peanut flour (Any flour will work, but peanut flour is a healthy alternative)
  • 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda and/or baking powder (again, this is a personal preference)
  • 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!
