Keto Raspberry “No Pretzel” Salad

It is one of those desserts that always popped up at family reunions, Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas. With its jello top layer, cool whip inner layer and pretzel bottom it was salty and sweet and delicious!

Now with my keto version you can have 2nds and feel zero guilt! Plus it is gluten free and is the perfect blend of sweetness!

All of this was created with my favorite jel dessert by Simply Delish! I chose a flavor that would pair with a keto fruit……raspberry!

You HAVE to get some for yourself because the old sugar free jello at the store will not cut it! You want the fresh taste that Simply Delush gives to this wonderful dessert!

Low Carb Crepes

I have not really had many crepes before in my life. Pancakes, yes, but crepes, no. So when my husband asked for some I had to figure out a low carb version that would work, and this one does!

I had strawberries with mine, but you could easily go with a different berry! Berries are low in carbs and high in fiber so they are a perfect fit for a low carb lifestyle!

Low Carb Crepes

Enjoy crepes again with this quick recipe that comes together easy in your blender! Use cream cheese in place of mascarpone if you cannot find mascarpone. Makes 2 to 3 large crepes @ 1g net carbs each. Add in berries, I used 1/2 cup fresh strawberries at 6g net carbs. Blackberries are less, blueberries are more.
