Recipe: Keto Berry Ice Cream

Although I don’t regret stepping back from my previous job, it’s been almost seven months unemployment. This is around the time when the “oh my god why won’t anyone interview me” gloom sets in. It’s been so long that I wanted to title this post Motivation Monday, because I am genuinely having trouble keeping track of what day it is.

So today, I tried a new method for responding to job ads: blatant self-bribery. Continue reading “Recipe: Keto Berry Ice Cream”


Recipe: Lazy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Ice Cream

I recently experienced a life-changing revelation: it is possible to make ice cream without an ice cream maker.

… Some of you might already know this. But just to be clear, I’m not talking about the baggie of ice cream mixture inside a bigger baggie of water, ice, and rock salt. The recipe below is based on another recipe I found online, but different enough to be new on the grounds that I didn’t have several of those ingredients.

Also, I rue the day I got fat free Greek Yogurt without realizing it. I keep adding heavy whipping cream to everything to help balance things out… Hitting the right ratio of macronutrients for keto is hard.


Lazy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Ice Cream


  • 60g non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 20g heavy whipping cream (1 tbsp = 15g)
  • ½ cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1½ tsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp granular Swerve sweetener


  1. Whisk everything together. If it ends up frothy, that’s okay.
  2. Freeze for one hour, then take it out and stir thoroughly.
  3. Freeze for half an hour, then stir.
  4. Freeze for half an hour, then stir and serve.

For those keeping track, all of this works out to…

Recipe: Banana Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Pancakes

This weekend I brought home a bunch of bananas and a half carton of eggs, and had a go at my own version of these healthy pancake recipe(s) from Buzzfeed. Flipping things is usually my weakness, yet I keep taking it on. Regular pancakes, green onion pancakes, blinkity blanking crepes… but I am happy to say that by the third round of pancakes I had it down pretty good.

Made with The Country Hen eggs every time, because they are free range, organic… and the only 6-egg carton available at my local grocery store, which works out quite nicely.

And as for the syrup, that came about mainly because I had some still hard cider that had been hanging out in the fridge for a while. It was still okay, but, you know… a little past its Best By date. Whoops. So I used it for cooking, and the results were very tasty with a hint of boozy — let’s hear it for 6.9% AVB!

On their own the pancakes are quite good, moist and almost bready with bursts of hot blueberry juice here and there. With the syrup they were absolutely perfect, although that does send the “healthy” part into a little bit of a decline.
