There seems to be much interest in the Keto Desserts recipe book, and to be honest, I’m not surprised. When people discover that they can literally ‘have their cake and eat it too’ – without expanding their waistline or raising their blood sugar and they realise that they can eat delicious cakes and dessert without the guilt, they (understandably) want to know more.
What makes these dessert recipes ‘guilt free’?

What about the sweetener?
The recipes in the Guilt Free Desserts recipe book are sweetened with Erythritol. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol (or Polyol), like Xylitol and various others that are found in various plants including fruits and vegetables such as grapes and mushrooms.
Erythritol is the sweetener of choice for these recipes because it contains no calories, no carbs (unless you eat a huge amount of it) and it is better tolerated than other sugar alcohols which can have a laxative effect on some people. It has about 60-80% moderate sweetness compared to sucrose.
Erythritol is not an artificial sweetener and does not contain alcohol. You can find more info here.
What recipes are in the Keto Desserts book?
The following are just some of the most popular desserts that you’ll be able to make from the Keto Desserts recipe book:

Take a look and you’ll see that it’s jam packed with mouth watering, delicious dessert recipes and remember while you read the list, you can eat these without the guilt. This even includes sugar free brownies and sugar free cake. YUM!
But remember folks, just like everything you have to consume this moderately and what is allowable in your dietary intake based on your own individual health conditions.
If you’re not sure where to by Erythritol, you may find it at your supermarket or health shop, otherwise you can order online from a number of places:
Netrition have a great brand that has combined Erythritol with Stevia. Great idea! That’s the way I use it and it works well.
If you’re in Australia, these guys have also have an Erythritol/Stevia blend which I might have to try some time…
