4. Key Lime Tarts

This dessert is perfect for all phases of the Ideal Protein diet.

Ingredients

Directions

For the filling:

  1. Dissolve one teaspoon of True Lime flavoring in about 3 ounces of water.
  2. Add a little Stevia or Splenda for taste; it should be sweet but tart.
  3. Add one Ideal Protein Vanilla Pudding and mix well until smooth. It should have no lumps, with a consistency thicker than the usual pudding.
  4. Cover and refrigerate.

For the crust:

  • Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • Mix 1 packet of Ideal Protein Maple Oatmeal with the egg white and 1 to 1 ½ oz/30-45ml of water. It should be just enough for a stiff but manageable dough.
  • Coat your muffin tins with non-stick spray.
  • Moisten your hands to avoid the dough sticking to them, then form little balls using about 2-3 teaspoons of the dough.
  • Place one ball in each baking cup.
  • Press the dough down as thinly as possible across the bottom and sides to form a little ‘cup’ because it will rise and arch over during baking.
  • Bake for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the tarts from the cups, turn them upside down, and bake for a few more minutes until they’re crispy brown. However, don’t do this if the cake shells are too hard.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Take the lime filling out of the fridge and stir in the last packet of True Lime flavoring to give in an extra tangy taste.

You can add 3 eggs white, whipped, for the meringue, but this is optional. Note that three tarts equal one Ideal Protein serving, and the recipe makes 2 servings. Enjoy!

Nutritional Value of Ideal Protein Dessert Recipes

The major components of these desserts are Ideal Protein meal mixes, so you don’t have to worry much about carbs and calories.

Why Eat Dessert?

  1. Dessert, which is a French word for clear the table, helps to digest the meal. That is especially so with fruity desserts that add digestive enzymes.
  2. Dessert, usually a sweet treat, makes you happy. It is the last part of the meal that you can indulge in and relax into the evening, afternoon, or whatever time it is.
  3. It helps to cure cravings.
  4. It adds missing nutrients.
  5. It helps you to feel fuller, prevents frequent eating, and thus helps with weight control.

These delicious Ideal Protein desserts are perfect to be eaten as snacks (they will not be ‘desserts’ then, but who cares), or after meals. They will help to keep your sweet tooth cravings in check.

Do not be put off by the seemingly lengthy procedures of some of these desserts. They are really quite simple to prepare. However, they are packed with nutrients, so be sure to keep track of your overall intake. Keep yourself in check!
