This sugar-free keto-friendly dessert is made with my favourite combination: luscious strawberries, tangy rhubarb and sweet-spicy cinnamon. All blended into custard lightened up with egg whites and whipped cream.

How To Make Raw Eggs Safe to Consume

If a recipe calls for raw eggs and you are concerned about the potential risk of Salmonella, you can make it safe by using pasteurized eggs. To pasteurize eggs at home, simply pour enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs. Heat to about 60 °C/ 140 °F. Using a spoon, slowly place the eggs into the saucepan. Keep the eggs in the water for about 3 minutes. This should be enough to pasteurize the eggs and kill any potential bacteria. Let the eggs cool down and store in the fridge for 6-8 weeks.

Tips & Substitutions

The main reason I use two sweeteners in most of my recipes is that a combination of more sweeteners mask the aftertaste or bitterness of some of them.

For a dairy-free option: To “cream” the coconut milk, simply place the can in the fridge overnight. Next day, open, spoon out the solidified coconut milk and discard the liquids. Do not shake before opening the can. One 400 gram can will yield about 200 grams of coconut cream.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This looks awesome!  Honeyville sells organic unsweetened freeze dried strawberries which I have powdered and used in your recipes!  I am going to try them in this dessert!

That sounds great and may work even better for the texture. Let me know if you make it 😊

strawberries & rhubarb = the best keto combo!!! Thank you 8-)

Thank you Ivy!
