Since my mashed "fauxtato" mix was gross to everyone (btw, just mashed cauliflower); maybe you would think this is gross, too.

My faux milk!!


Living a low carb lifestyle is a challenge for me because I grew up on pretty much, all carb based foods so, once I was put on this to further enhance my training, I got so bored with the same crap everyday. No flavor, no fun.....I hated forcing the same food down my throat everyday but I was seeing the results in the gym better than ever (I'm not focused solely on weight loss but also weight training for career purposes) so I just did it but I about gave up until I researched it further.

I found so many, carb-LIKE foods that imitated the tastes of the foods I was craving so badly.

One was, milk and smoothies! I LOVE smoothies and needed protein shakes for afterwork out but just ate an extra serving of meat for a while, instead then:

I found a recipe for faux milk! Finally!! Protein shakes have returned!

At only 3g carb per cup and 65 calories, perfection!!


It tastes, imo, BETTER than regular milk.


Recipe:
1-2tbsp heavy cream (I only use 1 per cup bc it's too thick if I use 2)

1 1/3tbsp non far dry milk (I only use 1tbsp)

1 cup cold water

Sprinkle of salt

Sprinkle of Splenda (optional)

I don't HAVE to refrigerate it before you use it but I like it cold.

I would love the recipe as well!We eat low-carb and I'm always on the look out for low-carb "copy cat" recipes of the high carb foods that I love!
