Why I made Strawberry Fluff Salad

When you are eating keto, it can be difficult at times to get enough fiber and fat in your diet. This is where chia seeds and heavy cream come into the picture! Chia is high in fiber and fat and basically negates the carb count. The heavy cream is high in fat and super delicious when whipped with a little sweetener.

Since we are now Keto, I decided that we had to have a go-to creamy, delicious fat bomb recipe that we could enjoy whenever we needed to up our fats. Most fruit is out on Keto, but berries are definitely in. After eating a chia pudding one day, I started thinking about how I could make it fluffier! Not to mention add some extra fat to our diet.

What Chia Seeds are and why they are good for Keto

What is Chia Seed?

Chia is an edible seed that comes from a flowering plant. They can be black or white, and will absorb up to 12 times their weight in liquid. After they have soaked in liquid, they will form a gel-like substance around the seed. This makes them perfect for thickening jams and puddings.

Why are Chia Seeds good for the Keto diet?

When eating low carb, your diet may lack in fiber. So this miracle seed is a perfect solution due to its high fiber and fat content. Just 1 serving of chia is 11 grams of fiber and 9 grams of fat!

Are Chia Seeds high in calories?

Chia Seeds have 137 calories per two tablespoons. However, for the most part, calories on Keto do not count. When eating a high-fat low carb diet, you tend to feel less hungry and have fewer cravings. Therefore, you tend to eat less. Chia seed in tablespoon being poured into liquid

Do I need to limit the amount of Chia Seeds in my diet?

I highly recommend you don’t consume a large quantity of chia in any one day. Due to their high fiber content, they may cause digestive issues.

How to make Strawberry Fluff Salad

While it takes only 10 minutes to mix the salad, you will need to let it sit at least 8 hours, or overnight. You will then need about another 10 minutes to whip your cream and fold into the salad in the final step.

Measure or weigh your strawberries. I used 1 cup of whole strawberries which weighed in at 5.5 ounces.

The one ingredient I feel is essential in adding flavor to this recipe is the sugar-free almond-flavored syrup. The almond flavoring in the syrup compliments the strawberries and give it just the right amount of sweetness. This is my go-to syrup for recipes and sweetening my coffee!

    What could I use n the place of the heavy cream? I can’t use dairy. Something that will whip up like the heavy cream.

      Hi Faye, You could try coconut cream. I haven’t done so but I think that would be the most stable item to make it with. Since you’ve asked this question, I will definitely try to find a non-dairy version and update the post as soon as I do! Thank you for stopping by!
