You can use any berry of your choice (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc), as long as your fruit choice is one of the low carb variety.

Japanese Cotton Cheesecakes are a bit different than normal cheesecakes as they are based on a meringue and are very light and fluffy.

26. Pecan Peanut Butter Fat Bombs
Crushed pecan nuts, mixed with peanut butter, cocoa, butter and coconut oil. Seriously… I cant get enough of this stuff! Nuts are a good choice for a low-carb diet because most nuts are fairly low in carbohydrates, plus they’re loaded with good stuff – fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. If you’re following a very-low-carb diet, you’ll need to limit your daily servings of nuts because carbs can add up fast.
