Low Carb Almond Meringue Cookies

Meringue cookies are similar to pavlovas, but they aren’t supposed to have a chewy marshmallow-like interior. Instead, a properly made meringue will be dry through the center and will melt in your mouth with very little effort. The end result is light, airy, and incredibly delicious.
Tip: Eggs are easier to separate while they are still chilled. Once separated, reserve the yolks in the refrigerator for another use, if desired, and allow the whites to come to room temperature for at least 30 minutes prior to beating.

Pizza-Stuffed Poblano Peppers

This delicious and satisfying low carb pizza alternative really hits the spot. It features mildly spicy Poblano peppers filled with sautéed mushrooms, chunks of pepperoni, and melted Mozzarella cheese for a classic pizza taste without all the carbs.
<b?Tip: For an easy lunch-to-go option, double this recipe for plenty of leftovers over the next few days.

Warm Black Cherry Crisp

Tip: Frozen cherries are much easier to use than fresh for this recipe. Place frozen cherries in a small strainer set over a large bowl to collect the liquid while thawing. Reserve the liquid to use in smoothies, cocktails, or non-alcoholic beverages. For example, you can combine some of the cherry juice with club soda and some crushed mint for a refreshing spritzer.

Instant Pot® Savory Apple Chutney

This super versatile apple chutney can be used in so many ways. For example, it is wonderful as a tasty sandwich spread or as a decadent glaze for roasted chicken or pork. It can also be served with an assortment of different cheese varieties, cured meats, and gluten-free crackers or crostini for a delicious appetizer.

The garlic chili sauce used in this recipe is available in most grocery stores or online. It is spicy, so start with a small amount and add more to reach the desired level of heat.

Instant Pot® Baked Brie & Apple Appetizer

This super easy and delicious appetizer is perfect for holiday and other gatherings when your oven is already in use for other items.

Tip: For a nice presentation, use a ramekin or other heat-proof bowl just large enough to fit the Brie round (approximately 4½ – 5-inch diameter and at least 1-inch deep). If you don’t have a container this size, you can wrap the round of Brie tightly with aluminum foil, as well.

Tip: Batter ingredients must be room temperature for this recipe to work. Allow 2 hours or more to achieve the correct temperature.

Sparkling Paloma Cocktail

The Paloma is the national drink of Mexico. Many traditional recipes feature a blend of blanco tequila, lime juice, and grapefruit-flavored soda. This refined sugar-free version replaces the grapefruit soda with fresh pink grapefruit juice and club soda. If desired, a little powdered monkfruit simple syrup or agave syrup can be added to sweeten.
Palomas are commonly served in highball glasses. If none are available, whiskey glasses, stemless wine glasses, or other forms of glassware can be used.

Tip: One large pink grapefruit should yield approximately 6 oz. of juice if using a manual juicer.

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri

This fresh and fruity homemade daiquiri recipe eliminates the need for sugary prepared mixes full of artificial colors and flavors. With just a few ingredients and your blender, you’ll be sipping a delicious frozen drink before you now it.
Note: Simple syrup is normally prepared using a 1:1 ratio of refined white sugar to water. In general, monkfruit sweetener is considered a 1:1 replacement for sugar, but in this case, a 1:2 ratio (one-part sweetener to two-parts water) works well without being overly sweet.

Frozen Pina Colada

Many pina colada recipes call for cream of coconut, which is a sweetened version of coconut cream. This refined sugar-free version uses the rich coconut cream found on the top of a can of unsweetened coconut milk. A simple syrup made with powdered monkfruit provides the perfect touch of sweetness to balance out the other flavors.
Note: Simple syrup is normally prepared using a 1:1 ratio of refined white sugar to water. In general, monkfruit sweetener is considered a 1:1 replacement for sugar, but in this case, a 1:2 ratio (one-part sweetener to two-parts water) works well because the pineapple is inherently sweet.

You can use fresh, frozen, or canned pineapple for this recipe. For best results, use fresh pineapple that has been cut into chunks and frozen prior to blending.
