Blackberries blended in. I was called on to "bring dessert" for the family Mother's Day gathering. One problem. I haven't been eating dessert since starting my low carb high fat lifestyle. What to do?... I visited, Ditch the Carbs, found a recipe for blueberry cheesecake using stevia. Blueberry were very pricy at Costco this week but blackberries weren't so into the cake they wen't. I used Truvia instead of stevia because it's what I got. In principle I've not been utilizing much artificial sweeteners because, sweetness makes me want to eat more of something that, without the sweetness i wouldn't choose to eat or at least not that much of. Stevia and erythritol on paper look better than other non-caloric sweeteners. No insulin bump, so it is my sweetener of choice. I'll have to wait to taste the finished product once I get to Cherry Hill tomorrow but I can tell you what I licked off the the mixing bowl was sooo good... Cravings? perhaps...
