Low Carb Strawberry Banana No Bake Lasagna

1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream

1/2 cup Splenda

1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract

2 small packages Sugar Free Jello Vanilla Pudding

2 cups Almond Milk (I actually use SO Coconut Milk)

2 sleeves Graham Crackers

1 pack of Strawberries (sliced)

2 bananas

Sometimes you just need a quick and easy dessert and/or you want something sweet without totally blowing your diet. This little dish accomplishes BOTH! (See nutritional info below, 12 net carbs isn’t too bad for a sweet, decadent dessert!)

On to the recipe!

I start off by prepping the whip.

Pour the entire pint of cream into a large bowl. Add the Splenda and Vanilla Extract. Beat with hand mixer on highest setting until it turns into a thick whipped cream. Set in the fridge.

Next prepare the pudding. In another bowl, mix the pudding and the milk with a whisk. Once we’ll combined, place in the fridge till quickset (10 minutes)

While waiting for the pudding to set, prep your strawberries by removing the tops and slicing them. Next slice the bananas.

Place a small amount of pudding in the bottom of the casserole dish. Place a layer of graham crackers on top, next a layer of pudding, next a layer of strawberries and bananas, then a layer of whipped cream. Another layer of graham crackers, more pudding, more strawberries and bananas and top with another layer of whipped cream.

I garnished the edges with a few extra graham crackers that I turned into crumbs with my food processor.

Linkin the beagle wants to lick the beaters (sorry pup, no Splenda for doggies)

Cover with foil and refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.

Six Ingredient Cupcake ♥️

I like cupcakes.

Screw it, that’s a lie.

I LOVE cupcakes.

Brown Butter Pineapple Upside Down Cupcake

I could probably survive life solely on cupcakes, coffee and bacon.

I enjoy making cupcakes almost as much as I enjoy eating them.

I have a very simple, basic recipe that never changes. I simply change out the additions to transform them into something new.

Sleepy Little Llama Crochet Pattern

I had this skein of yarn laying around that I had bought last summer. It wasn’t expensive, but the color just looked so appealing to me, however; I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I kept looking at it wondering what it could be. (this may the reason why my yarn stash is so, well….let’s just call it “healthy”!)

Sometimes I can’t imagine yarn just becoming a hat or scarf or blanket, sometimes it’s as if I can hear it begging to be something ultimately “cooler” and preferably with a personality! Maybe the yarn just wants to know it will be hugged and or loved by someone (I mean, can you blame it afterall? Who doesn’t want to be hugged and loved from time to time?)

Bacon is irreplaceable! BUT….just maybe…

It’s true! Bacon can simply not be replaced.

When I recently went to a Pescatarian lifestyle I knew the hardest thing about this change was going to be saying goodbye to bacon.

Seriously, Steak, eh. Chicken, meh. But bacon….I mean BACON, crispy, fried, heavenly, melt in your mouth bacon!!!!!!! How could I possibly say goodbye. Bacon is the boy that you just can’t let go…you know what I’m talking about! That bad boy that is terrible for you! The one your dad forbids you see! The one that treats you horribly yet you keep going back to whatever magnet he is hiding under his skin. You know that boy…..he is the same as bacon. Continue reading “Bacon is irreplaceable!

STARBUCKS PINK DRINK (keto version) 😮

Okay, so…I might be obsessed ❤️❤️❤️ this spring with Starbucks Pink Drink! Only, my obsession is actually with the KETO version you make yourself in your kitchen! Now mind you, this can be ordered in the store as well but only with careful planning! You see the problem is that Starbucks stores loves sugar, and they like to make their drinks with plenty of the sweet stuff! But us KETO folks know that sugar = carbs and other yucky things we want to avoid. Here is my way of making this delicious drink at home! If you want to read about how I order in the store, I’ve added that below.
