If there's anything I've learned while living a keto lifestyle, it's that cutting out sugar and carbs is really easy as long as you prepare, prepare, prepare. For some of us, that means it's really the opposite of easy, but if you have your ingredients and some time, you can make just about anything keto.
Sometimes I want to make a quick dessert at home, but do not want to make a huge cake or a large pan of brownies because I know that I will just end up eating half the pan. I live with my boyfriend, but he does not have a sweet tooth as I do, and will leave much of the dessert left for me to drool over until I cave in and eat it all. It is then unhealthy if I eat too much of the dessert and wasteful if I throw it out. A good solution to this problem is making a little mug cake for one to enjoy. I found a basic recipe online, and change it up for myself depending on my mood. You simply stir a few basic ingredients into a mug or bowl and pop it in the microwave. It is that easy.
1. Loaf of Yum: Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap while softening ice cream on your kitchen counter. Fill loaf pan approximately ¼ full with ice cream and re-freeze. Repeat with 3 more flavors, re-freezing after each. When you are ready to serve, simply turn out onto a platter and remove the wrap.
Sound crazy? It's actually very logical...

1. Cheesecake: I admit that I am a cheesecake snob. If it’s not mine, it better be from Carnegie Deli in NYC. That’s just how I roll. No fruit. No sour cream goo spread on top. Everyone has their own preference though and what better time to have a friendly debate than a family get-together, right?!
