Low Carb Cool Down

Here is a selection of my favourite low carb dessert options for a nice refreshing sweet fix.

Flip O's Ice blocks

This new product has been a hit with my clients this summer. Each water ice has only 10 calories and zero carbs. It's a great option when you are feeling hot and bothered and need something cool.

Zilch Ice cream

Zilch is a popular option with my clients. It is available at all supermarkets and has no added sugar. It does have maltitol and sorbitol so be wary if you follow a low fodmap plan due to IBS.

high protein berry gelato

Blend up 1/2 a cup of frozen berries with a scoop of protein powder, ice and a dash of milk. It has the thick texture of gelato and is a great, high protein dessert.

Low carb ice cream

Make your own ice cream with this recipe from Wholesum Yum. It has five ingredients: Butter, cream, MCT oil, vanilla extract and powdered allulose.


This ice cream is keto-friendly and comes in 6 different flavours. It's available at Pak n Save Silverdale and New World Orewa.

protein ice blocks

Make a protein shake (protein powder, milk, berries) and freeze it in ice block molds. Great to have after dinner!
