At the moment my life is very much consumed with low-carbing; Be it counting carbs, hating carbs or dreaming up carb-less recipes, in one way or another everyday is a carb day! And that has become very apparent on my blog, I hope you all are still finding my posts interesting and are happy to follow me on my low carbing journey. I promise, there will be some more travel related posts soon! *Cough* I’m heading to Suffolk shortly, and I’m sure my travel juices will begin to flow again! *Cough* But for now, let me continue overwhelming you with my low carb recipes and ideas…
My Mother recently gifted me a loaf of Livlife Low Carb bread, I was very excited when I saw it, my mind instantly turned to sandwiches, toast and well, an amalgamation of both, toasties!
Having indulged in a few Violife fuelled late lunches, I started thinking about all the sweet treats I could make. And from that tiny thought came a delicious, low carb, fruity ‘jam’. Super easy, low fat, low carb and really delicious served along side toast I was pleasantly surpised by the result.
If you would like to give it a try, the recipe is below
What You’ll Need
Makes Enough Jam for 4 Slices of Toast
40g Peach – Chopped in to Small Chunks
40g Frozen Mixed Berries
3g Chopped Walnuts
7g Dairyfree Butter (Vitalife)
A Squirt of Lemon Juice
Roughly 200 ml of Cold Water
What You’ll Need to do
Heat the butter in a pan and while it’s melting, chop the peach in to small cubes. In to the melted butter add the peach, the mixed berries and the nuts. Stir and add a quarter of the water.
As the water dissolves the mixture will begin to thicken, continue this process of adding water and thickening the jam until all your water has gone. Should take about 15 minutes on a medium heat. Then add a squirt of lemon juice, mix and taste! Be careful, it’ll be hot! It’ll be sweet and tangy, sharp and bitter, but 100% totally delicious! Serve with toast, crackers, vegan cheese or just simply a spoon 😉
