Orange Keto Fluff Salad is a fun dessert made with a whipped cream base that is filled with sugar-free orange marshmallows and topped with coconut flakes. It's an easy-to-make low carb treat with only 6g net carbs per serving.
What am I doing? Just trying to figure out how to do up my hair for a big date. I am torn between the “DATE-BAIT” and the “COCKADE”. (I just looked up the meaning of “cockade” and it is not as racy as it sounds.) Decisions, decisions.
While I decide, let’s talk about an equally absurd dessert: Orange Keto Fluff Salad.
Lately, I’ve been dreaming of this great orange Jello salad that I used to eat when I was a kid. It was a heady mixture of mandarin oranges, coconut, whipped cream, orange Jello, and marshmallows. But now that I am eating low carb, oranges and marshmallows are out of the question. Problem!
But not to worry, I came up with a work around: sugar free orange marshmallows.
Yes! It can be done. I tinkered around until I came up with a recipe for orange marshmallows made from Sugar-Free Orange Jello, arrowroot powder, and whipped egg whites. You can cut them up into squares, or make them look like orange slices by using a 1 inch round cookie cutter and cutting the circles in half.
And what about the fluff part?
The fluffy base of this Orange Keto Fluff Salad is a mixture of heavy whipping cream, sour cream, and powdered sweetener. It’s a throwback to a classic fruit and whipped cream dessert salad called “ambrosia”.
But is Sugar Free Jello Keto?
Yes… probably. Sugar-Free Jello has zero carbs so it is definitely Keto friendly. It does contain the sweeteners aspartame and maltodextrin though, which are controversial in Keto circles. But Sugar-Free Jello contains such a tiny amount of these artificial sweeteners, that they are very unlikely to knock you out of Ketosis.
What is in low carb orange fluff salad?
To make this low carb Jello salad, you’ll need egg whites, cream of tartar, powdered sweetener, arrowroot powder, Sugar-Free Orange Jello, unflavored gelatin, heavy whipping cream, sour cream, and unsweetened coconut flakes.
So you can whip this fluffy fruity dessert up in a jiffy.
Bring it to potluck dinners, Little League games, and Tupperware parties alike. Everyone will love it. And each serving has just 269 calories and 6g net carbs so you can eat it with a guilt-free conscience.
But enough bragging, now it’s time for me to get out my Dippity-Do and curl my hair into “THE TEMPT-TRESS”.Print
