Low Carb Chocolate Lasagna 

(or sex in a pan if you prefer)

We have never really been a fan of the phrase "sex in a pan" for this dessert, therefore if you see it on social media we will be referring to it as low carb chocolate lasagna.  Oh , by the way,  this is also an approved keto dessert recipe. Many people don't realize that a ton of low carb recipes are also keto. 

Low Carb vs. Keto 

Basically, low carb and keto are the same thing.  Both diets eliminate refined sugars and consume more fat than carbs.  When following the keto diet carb intake is usually restricted to 40 carbs daily, max.   A low carb diet , around 75-150. For most low carb recipes, the ingredients are all keto approved but may have more carbs per serving than your macros allow.  It comes down to what fits into your day. 

About the recipe

This recipe starts with a super fudge like brownie that must be totally and completely cooled before layering. The second layer is mint flavored and cream cheese based. Yum, right?  On top of that, chocolate!  Sugar free chocolate pudding and then of course the super creamy whipped cream topping.  See tips below for the perfect whipped cream.

Tips for the perfect whipped cream

  • Start with a bowl that has been chilled in the freezer.  (I even place the beaters in the bowl)
  • Use very cold cream.
  • See the trend here?  Chill everything!
  • If using a hand mixer, slowly move it around the bowl while whipping in a "figure 8" pattern. 
  • Don't stop mixing! 
  • If sweetener and vanilla is called for, add it into the cream before mixing. 

Why is it called "Lasagna"?

I know, some of you hate it when you see a recipe called something that it clearly isn't.  I do too,  I do really! We get it, but in our defense we are using quotes to acknowledge that we realize this isn't a traditional lasagna. Please forgive us.  The recipe is called "lasagna" because of the multiple layers, pan used to make it and that familiar square shaped piece that's perfectly showing all the layers. This keto dessert recipe has four layers plus the sprinkle of sugar free Andes mint chocolate candies on top. There may be no noodles, ricotta, meat and cheese but there is brownie, chocolate, mint cream, whipped cream and more chocolate mint.  Hopefully we have convinced you to be ok with this recipe being called "lasagna".  Remember...  the quotes make all the difference!

  1. Can you use something other then sugar free pudding? I have a sensitivity to the low sugar sub used in these products.
