  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries or strawberries

Low Carb Mini Cheesecakes

Cheesecake is by far my absolute favorite dessert and I am in love with this super easy low carb modification, it honestly tastes just as good and is the perfect snack when you’re having a sweet craving. I had been researching for a while to find a healthy sugar substitute that isn’t artificial and full of chemicals when I came across Xylitol, it’s 100% pure, vegan, non gmo and tastes great with no weird after taste. I purchased mine on Iherb.com, which is one of my favorite websites to shop for natural, organic foods and supplements.  New customers can get $5-$10 off their first orders by using code WWv680 and everything ships for free with orders over $20! I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! 🙂

Low Carb Mini Cheesecakes

♦️6 Carbs per cheesecake

  • Note: *Using a different sugar substitute will lower the carb intake. Xylitol is on the higher side of the carb scale.
  • 16oz cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup xylitol (or your favorite sweetener will do)
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients into large bowl, use hand mixer and blend well. Pour into 12 cupcake liners. Bake for 20 mins. Allow to cool, then eat. Store all left overs in the fridge. 

Honey Lemon Green Tea

Photo: I love a good cup of tea, better yet a cup of tea that is full of good for you ingredients and tastes amazing. 
Here's what I'm drinking on:

Ingredients: 
1 Green Tea Tea Bag 
8 oz water (depends on size of cup)
Drizzle of lemon juice (to taste)
Drizzle of Raw Organic Honey (to taste)

*Green tea has been shown to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol. A 2013 review of many studies found green tea helped prevent a range of heart-related issues, from high blood pressure to congestive heart failure. Via Webmd.com

*Lemon Juice:There are many health benefits of lemons that have been known for centuries. The two biggest are lemons’ strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and their use as a weight loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many substances--notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene--that promote immunity and fight infection. Via beliefnet.com

*Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Via naturalnews.com
