It’s the season to celebrate sibling love. All of us have experienced Raksha Bandhan in one way or the other, and we know that no Rakhi celebration is complete without mithai. It’s just integral to the festival. But those sweets are just packed full of sugar, and for the health-concious among us, we know exactly how harmful it can be. Even as siblings reaffirm their promise to protect each other, who’s going to protect them from the sugar in those sweets?
Fear not, we’ve got your back. Here’s a gorgeous keto-friendly recipe for Rasmalai made with Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener, that will make sure that you don’t compromise on either health or taste this Rakhi. So when you share the love, you aren’t sharing any of the bad stuff (see: sugar). Check it out:
- Muffin Baking Tray
- Silicone Spatula
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 tbsp Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener
- 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3 tbsp Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener
- 2 tbsp almonds - chopped
- 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
- 5 strands saffron - soaked in 1 tbsp almond milk
- Mix ricotta cheese, Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener and cardamom powder well in a bowl. Fill the slots of the muffin pan until the mix is gone.
- Smoothen the top with a silicone spatula
- Bake in oven for 20 minutes at 350°F
- Bring almond milk and heavy whipping cream to a boil on a stove at medium heat.
