Sugar Free Low Carb Coconut Custard

Sugar Free Low Carb Coconut Custard

For some reason, I seem to be doing better with weight loss when I use Splenda instead of a stevia and erythritol mix. I do use a liquid version of Splenda which has zero carbs and calories so perhaps that is the reason. It has been a few weeks since I’ve baked a dessert, but I have been eating Splenda sweetened protein bars which are like eating candy. I wanted to make something sweet that would be fairly low in carbs and calories. Of course gelatin is always a great standby, but I wanted something with a little more substance. I thought about making some pudding and ended up with a baked custard. Coconut is one of my favorite flavors so I made some baked coconut custard in single serving cups.

    Would love to make this. One question: did you use lite or regular coconut milk?
    I like a lite brand that does not have any additives and would love to try using the ‘lite’.

      I bought a 4 oz bottle of Sweetzfree a while back at their website and it lasts a long time since it is so highly concentrated. However, next time I will buy EZ-Sweetz or another form of liquid sucralose from Amazon because it is much cheaper.
