You can always "let them eat cake" with this mug cake recipe. This cake has an amazing texture, 6 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar. It's a treat I feel good about giving my kids for dessert and it's so quick to make that once everyone is in bed I can whip one up for myself for a moment of red velvet decadence!
You will need a microwave-safe mug and the following ingredients:
1 Tbsp Sweet Cheat Chocolate Milk mix
2 Tbsp ground almonds
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp water
1 tsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
1 drop red food colouring
1 Tbsp cream cheese
1/2 tsp Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit
Start by assembling all your ingredients:
Now, I like to show every step and make more dishes dirty than I have to for some reason that my husband can't understand. But in reality, you can go ahead and melt the butter in the mug and then whisk in all the other ingredients until smooth and microwave on high for 40 - 50 seconds. Top with the cream cheese icing or some Sweet Cheat Vanilla Whipped Cream, maybe some strawberries, and eat. Easy peasy.
But if you're like me and you find it oddly therapeutic to take twice as long as necessary, start by mixing together the dry ingredients in a bowl.
In another bowl, melt the butter in the microwave and then whisk in the egg yolk, vanilla, and food colouring.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together until smooth.
Scrape the batter into the mug and microwave on high for 40 - 50 seconds.
To make the icing, mix together the cream cheese and Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit and spread on top of the mug cake. Tip: to make the cream cheese and Monk Fruit easier to mix, either bring the cream cheese to room temperature or warm it slightly in the microwave.
Serves 1 (until the rest of the family comes running at which point you'll have to start a mug cake assembly line!).
It seems right now that mother nature is intent on melting us. Nothing helps beat the heat better than an ice-cold treat. Here is a quick, creamy sugar free version of a classic frozen fudge pop.
I’ve mentioned before how ridiculously high in added sugar store bought popsicles are. Store bought will cost you 11g of sugar, this version clocks in at 0g. The cream cheese is gives them a nice creamy texture. Feel free to also add a splash of cream if you don’t mind a few extra grams of fat.
The recipe comes together in a snap. Make a bunch and freeze for later so that you’re always ready to combat the heat!

After creating the recipe for Sweet Cheat Frozen Hot Chocolate, I got a lot of comments from people loving the “grown up” version with Irish Cream. That got me to reminiscing about the Frozen Mudslide drinks I drank in University.
The original recipe calls for both Kalua and Irish Cream. Delicious, however not low sugar by any stretch of the imagination. I thought there had to be a way to create a low carb, no sugar version. Guess what, I did it!!!
As excited as I am about this recipe, I figured that people following a keto, or other low carb diet would love it too. It’s only 1g net carb!
All this one takes, is a few ingredients and a blender (or not, if you prefer no slush).
Combine. Mix or blend. Drink.
Just in time for the weekend.
