5 Five-Minute KETO Recipes that Make you go MMMMM
5 Five-Minute KETO Recipes that Make you go MMMMM

Following a KETO diet doesnt have to be hard, complicated or time consuming! Try these 5 five-minute KETO lovin' recipes that will definitely shave off time and keep your tastebuds going MM good!

#1 TAVO Sandwich

Tuna and avocado are two wonderful sources of healthy fatty acids (omega three among them!). Mix up a lovely can of tuna with some ripe avocado, add a dollop of mayonnaise and layer it between two crunchy iceberg lettuce leaves. It’s as easy to eat as a sandwich without the hassle of high carb bread. Or, as an alternative, roll up smaller lettuce leaves and serve it as a lovely finger food or snack at the next dinner party or as an alternative to popcorn on movie night!

We love to season our sandwich with a variety of Do You Bake? spices (especially for the LOVE of garlic) that can be found in our seasoning collection HERE

#2 - PB and C

Peanut Butter and Jam might be your go to comfort food, but scratch the J and replace it with some fluffy cream (sugar free) and a sprinkle of your favorite sugar free KETO approved sweet spice blend from your pantry.

Melt the peanut butter in the microwave, and slowly add the whipped cream until it forms a creamy, light consistency. It will feel like cake batter as you tuck into this gorgeous treat. Try to avoid artificially sweetened peanut butter, though. PB is a healthy source of protein and the right kind of fat, but it goes out the window if a ton of sugar has been added to it in the manufacturing process, so be mindful of that.

PB and C is an ultimate topper to a cup of full fat greek yogurt or even a delicious smoothie. Or delish on its own as a perfectly created fat bomb of a snack!

#3 - Spinach and Shrimp

Chop some onions and garlic, fry it golden brown in a pan. Then, add some shrimp until cooked to perfection. Then, stir in some fresh spinach leaves. For flavour add our kick in your THAI seasoning blend! and let the spinach get just slightly mushy (to taste). You’ve got yourself a keto meal that will delight everyone and is beyond healthy. For a vegan option, replace the shrimp with tofu.


#4 - Oven Baked Salmon

Love the taste of salmon, but hate the smell of fried fish in your kitchen? The perfect solution comes with the help of one of the most useful household items: aluminum foil. Get a nice cut of salmon, which is filled to the brim with the healthiest kind of fatty acids found in nature, season it to taste with curry powder, bay leaves, sea salt and coriander leaves. Wrap it up in some foil, put it on a baking tray and bake it for about 20 minutes (depending on the size of the cut and if it was frozen). You can add some green beans or asparagus right into the foil, that way the fish will absorb the subtle flavours of these veggies and give you a tasting experience that is complete and very rounded.

#5 - Cabbage and Bacon

Any Irish person (or any grandmother) will tell you, there is nothing quite like cabbage and bacon as a comfort food. And surprisingly, this staple of western society is completely in line with a keto diet. And it could not be simpler to make. Get the best streaky bacon you can find and fry it up until it’s nice and crisp. Then, simply cut up some white cabbage and sear it in a pan. Gradually add some beef stock to give it flavor. Serve with some butter or ghee dollopped on top.

A Closer Look: The Cauliflower
A Closer Look: The Cauliflower

The cauliflower is a marvelous wonder of nature. Not only does it look like a tiny albino tree (which in and of itself is awesome), it can also transform into a million different and delicious meals.

It’s main benefit is, that it is a low carb alternative to the potato, while being just as versatile. This makes it a huge deal for people with restricted diets or someone who is looking to cut down on their carb consumption.

Here are a few ideas on how to utilize and get the best out of this amazing vegetable.


Chickenless Chicken Wings

Ever wondered what to put on a BBQ for a vegetarian or vegan? It does not have to be hard!

Spice up some florets of cauliflower with some Luisiana hot sauce or BBQ sauce, toss the florets onto the grill for a few minutes and watch the spices and flavours infuse into the taste. You can treat the florets exactly like you would a chicken wing (except you don’t ever need to wonder if it’s cooked all the way through yet, because it always is).



Craving some buttery goodness on some lovely mash, but hating the idea of having to get potatoes? Use cauliflower instead. The huge advantage here is, that cauliflower soaks up any flavour you add to it much easier than potatoes do (in general). This means that whatever you add to make the mash taste better (a pinch of salt, a hint of pepper, or even some cardamon or nutmeg), will bring out that flavour like a firework in your mouth.


Pickle It

Want to create something really nice to give away or store for a long time? Create some colourful and tasty mason jars with pickled cauliflower.

All you need is some raw cauliflower, vinegar solution, cherry tomatoes or peppers (for a dash of colour), sweet baby onions, and some mustard seeds. Pickle them, and enjoy them a few weeks later with some freshly baked bread or as a side to your grilled chicken or burgers.


Chop It Up

Another idea is to use cauliflower as a meat substitute in a casserole or shepherd’s pie. For this, you simply need to chop it up finely (but not so fine that it loses its texture when cooked) and use it the same way you would use ground meat, but with a slightly shorter cooking time. Again, the easiness with which the cauliflower collects and infuses itself with other ingredients will lead to a taste experience unlike any other.


Fry It

Similar to the idea above (chickenless chicken wings), for this recipe you can cut the vegetable into big chunks of about a half inch in height (think, flat and wide). Then, season it to taste with a bit of butter or olive oil, pepper, salt, coriander or curry powder or marinate it in your favorite spicy sauce.

Then, bake it in the oven until it becomes slightly supple and have yourself a steakless steak. This idea goes great with egg plants or as a side dish to chicken seasoned in a similar way.

The ulmighty cauliflower is so versatile and easy to incorporate into your low carb fare!

Bulletproof Matcha Keto Latte Recipe

Bulletproof Coffee is a rich, creamy coffee drink filled with healthy fats.

We've taken the concept of bulletproof coffee and turned it into a KETOGENIC green tea matcha latte. 

The principle behind a bulletproof coffee for KETO followers is this : When you add additional fat into your morning routine, you will feel fuller longer.  If you are not a morning breakfast person, this is a good go to breakfast when following a KETOGENIC diet to maintain healthy fats and reduce your sugar cravings.

It has been said to help with weight loss for those that nibble all day long or are much more used to snacking on sugary snacks.

Our Bulletproof Matcha Latte Recipe :

1 scoop Do You Bake? KETO Matcha Ginseng Latte Mix

10oz almond milk (0 sugar)

1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/2 tablespoon unsalted grassfed butter

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil or MCT oil

In a large mug add your milk, butter, coconut oil and heavy cream. Heat in the microwave for about a minute.  Pour in your scoop of Matcha Ginseng latte (1 - 2 tablespoons) and stir away.
