Immunity-boosting Low Carb Dessert Recipe

Need an immunity-boosting low carb dessert recipe to fight this upcoming cold season?

I can’t believe that this year has flown by so quickly and it’s now November. With LA’s fluctuating temperature changes, it can feel like fall during the morning, summer during mid-day, and winter during the late evenings. Because of the rapid weather changes, it’s so easy to get sick. One way to boost our immunity systems is to add the Algenist’s Irish Moss supplement to our meals. Here’s what it contains and why it’s helpful for us:

Red Marine Algae & Irish Moss – fight the imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body

Vitamin C & E – supports your body’s immune system

This is the immunity-boosting supplement by Algenist.

For an easy dessert recipe, try my immunity-boosting low carb meringue. Check out the recipe below:

Ingredients:

3 egg whites

1 tsp of cream of tartar

1/8 cup of Algenist’s Irish Moss

1/2 cup of monk fruit sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200F
  2. Place egg whites and cream of tartar into a clean mixing bowl
  3. Whip these ingredients together with a mixer (medium speed) until it’s white and begins to form soft peaks.
  4. Slowly add monk fruit sugar (1/4 tsp at a time) into the same bowl while the mixer is on. Whip until the meringue until it is glossy and has stiff peaks.
  5. Carefully sprinkle Algenist’s Irish Moss supplement into the bowl and fold in all the ingredients with a spatula.
  6. Transfer the meringue into a clean cake decorating pouch with a metal tip and create circular treats (approx. 3” in diameter and 2” in height) by squeezing the bag; you can make smaller meringues if you’d like.
  7. Bake in the oven at 200F for 2 hours (do not let it turn brown). I suggest waiting a few hours before serving it so it will be crispy and airy.
  8. Enjoy! Serving size for 4.

Crispy Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

Want to make a crispy air fryer coconut shrimp dish for your staycation this summer? Sometimes it’s hard to get away to a tropical vacation. As a travel and food blogger, I am very fortunate to discover different types of cuisines from all over the world. With this, I love sharing these healthy and delicious ways to eat. Since I will be heading out to the island of Nevis in this coming week, I felt inspired to create a Caribbean inspired dish that’s low carb and keto-friendly but also taste delicious. Check out this recipe to make you feel like you are island hopping.

coconut-shrimp-2

Ingredients:

  • 10 pieces of raw medium-size wild-caught shrimp, deveined with the tail on
  • 1/2 tsp organic black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp organic sea salt
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp organic cayenne pepper (depending on your heat preference)
  • 1 tsp of organic lime juice
  • 1 cup of organic coconut flour
  • 1 cup of organic coconut milk
  • 1 cup of organic shredded coconut flakes

 

Directions

Mix the shrimp with the black pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and sea salt. Let it marinate for 10-30 min in the fridge.

Lightly coat the entire raw shrimp in the coconut flour; this will help absorb more coconut milk.

Quickly dip each shrimp in the coconut milk. Shake off any excess liquid.

Press the coconut flakes onto all sides of the shrimp

Place into the air fryer for 10 min at 400°F (204°C); feel free to add an extra 1-2 min to make it extra crispy.

And you’re done. Easy, right?

 What I love about this crispy air fryer coconut shrimp recipe is that it’s low carb and tastes like a tropical getaway. The coconut coating provides for a crunch that’s the opposite of the tenderness of the shrimp on the inside. I also wanted to include additional flavors of cayenne for a slight kick and lime juice for a citrusy complement to the seafood. But my favorite condiment for air fried dishes is ketchup. It’s the one condiment that rounds out all the flavor for this dish with its sweet flavor. My latest discovery has been Hunt’s Best Ever Ketchup, which is non-GMO and has no high fructose syrup (the sweetness comes from the sugar cane and California grown tomatoes). If you are looking for an alternative to the standard bottles of ketchup, check out this site (click HERE) to read more about this ketchup. Thanks again, Hunt’s for sponsoring this post.

Enjoy!
