Dukan Diet Dessert Recipes
For many people, the craving for sweets gets in the way of the best laid diet plans so Dukan Diet Dessert recipes are an absolute must. You will probably find that the first few days of sugar cravings are the most challenging and the hardest to fight. When you are used to having sugar (and sugar is in a lot of what we eat – not just sweets, cakes, candies and biscuits) – the physical cravings for it can be intense when you restrict it from your diet.
Dr. Dukan comes to the rescue with some great recipes for every stage of the Dukan Diet to allow you that sweet fix but without getting off your diet track. Dr. Dukan recommends using aspartame or nutrasweet as well as sucralose or splenda as alternatives to sugar artificial sweeteners. If you are okay with those artificial sweeteners, follow Dr. Dukan’s recipes exactly as they are low in calories and have the sweet taste you want to satisfy your cravings. However, we don’t think aspartame is good for you so we’d recommend stevia or other sugar substitutes instead of aspartame. You must avoid fructose, a fruit sugar based product as it is not allowed in the diet. If you get a good stevia and use it properly, you shouldn’t have the aftertaste that people sometimes complain of with stevia.
The first Dukan Diet sweets recipe that is high on protein and great to curb those sweets cravings is the Cafe Chocolate, Coffee or Vanilla Creme. This is an easy, basic recipe that you need very few ingredients for. Make it to taste and enjoy the delicious Dukan approved sweet treat in every phase of the diet.
Cafe, Chocolate or Vanilla Creme
3 eggs, separated
¼ tsp cornstarch
1 c skim milk
Flavoring (choose one): 1tsp instant coffee, 1 tsp non-fat cocoa powder dissolved in water or 1 vanilla pod, split lengthwise, insides removed and mixed with a few drops of vanilla extract. Sweetener to taste. Dukan uses aspartame (nutrasweet). You can also use Splenda. We recommend Stevia because it is a natural sweetener with no calories that has no negative long term side effects.
Now – how to incorporate the ingredients: First, make the ‘creme anglaise’: In a bowl, mix the egg yolks with the cornflour and beat until you have a smooth mouse. Pour the milk into a sauce pan and add the flavoring of your choice – either coffee, cocoa or vanilla. Warm over low heat. Remove from heat. Add the warmed milk mixture to the egg yolks. Put back on a low heat and stir well until the mixture thickens. Turn off the heat as soon as the mixture sticks to the spatula. You can now add sweetener like aspartame or stevia to taste. Pour into a large souffle dish or individual ramekins. Allow to set in the refrigerator. Serve very cold. You could also put this in an ice cream maker following the instructions that come with your ice cream maker.
Dukan Diet Dessert Recipes #1
Dukan Bavarian Mousse with Strawberry Jelly
Prep time: 15 min Rest time: 3 hours
Phase: PP (Attack phase approved!)
2 egg whites
1 sheet of gelatin
2 Tbsp 3% Bridelight cream (tolerated item – limited amount each day) This doesn’t appear to be readily available in the US – you will likely need to find a replacement cream that is 2-3% fat and remember as a tolerated item, you cannot have unlimited amounts each day! (We’ve not tried it yet but read a possible alternative could be low fat sour cream with a bit of sweetener and a couple of drops of fat free milk.)
4 ½ Tbsp powdered sweetener (stevia, aspartame, splenda, etc)
1 tsp Strawberry Flavoring
3 drops red food coloring (this of course is optional and we would recommend avoiding it as it is an artificial color)
1 pinch salt
6 level Tbsp of fat free fromage frais – if you have a difficult time obtaining fromage frais in your area, you could try mixing fat free cream cheese with no fat smooth cottage cheese or use fat free mascarpone or even a fat free yogurt and fat free smooth cottage cheese combination. However, if you can find fromage frais – go with that!!
Use a Chinese strainer lined with kitchen towel to drain off 6 table spoons of fat-free fromage frais overnight.
The following day, add 2 table spoons of 3% fat Bridelight cream and 2 tablespoons of
sweetener and mix. Whip 2 egg whites with a pinch of salt until very stiff. Work them into the fromage frais and hang in gauze, leaving it to drain in a cool place for 3 hours. During this time,
prepare the jelly:
put a sheet of gelatine, 1 teaspoon of strawberry flavoring, 3 drops of red food coloring and 2 ½ tablespoons of sweetener into 80cl of warm water. Make sure that the gelatine has melted fully and put in a cool place until you are ready to make up the plates. To do this, place the gauze and its contents into a heart-shaped mould and press it in a little so that it takes shape. Take out of the mould onto a plate and remove the gauze. Mash up the jelly with a fork and arrange it around the bavarois (or your little cream cake).
