I saw a Spanish Cream dessert recipe being made on an old cooking show, late at night, recently. I watched with some interest but thought that it sounded a lot like a Panna Cotta, so didn’t think I’d give it a whirl.
Imagine my surprise when she showed me the end result of a fabulous light and fluffy dessert, begging for me to dip my spoon into. This keto Spanish Cream recipe is light as a feather, much lighter than a mousse, yet still rich and complex in flavour.
You can set this healthy low-carb treat in one single dish and scoop it out with a serving spoon, but I love individual serving glasses.
This low-carb Spanish Cream can be served with a fruit compote, fresh berries or even sugar-free jam but I love it as is, with just the soft vanilla to add a lovely flavour.
How to Make Nut-Free Keto Spanish Cream
This recipe uses macadamia milk but any unsweetened nut or seed milk (such as poppy seed milk) will work. You could even use coconut milk or heavy whipping cream although the result will be richer and contain more fat and calories — fat bombs anyone? Enjoy!
