Low Carbohydrate Recipe
A tasty low carb Homemade Yogurt with many, many uses! Ingredients to create this marvel are heavy cream, plain yogurt and Splenda sweetened Davinchi syrup.
1 quart heavy cream
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 tablespoons Splenda sweetened DaVinci syrup
Note: DaVinci has a large selection of sugar free flavored syrups to choose from that are delicious, sugar free, taste great and have NO calories. Visit DavinciGourmet.com for more information.
Put heavy cream into heat-proof container, and put in a pot of simmering water which comes about half-way up the sides of the container. Simmer the cream for 20 minutes.
Microwave the gelatin in 30-second increments until liquid. Stir into the tea along with the liquid sweetener, Splenda and lemon juice.
Remove the jar from the water and allow to cool to room temperature. Stir in plain yogurt, making sure it has live culture. Cover and leave at room temperature for 48 hours. Refrigerate.
Notes: We used the Davinchi vanilla syrup, and this was excellent. It was very rich. If that is too rich for you, you could use whole milk next time. (The yogurt culture converts the lactose in the milk to lactic acid, and thereby "eats" some of the carbs. One cup of yogurt made with milk has about 4 carbs, rather than the 11 to 12 that is listed on the container of milk.)
