How to Make Amazing Low-Carb S’mores
One of the joys of summer is camping with friends and family. One of the best things about camping is creating and consuming s’mores. Roasted marshmallow and melted chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers is the unofficial mascot of summer. However, one can feel guilty eating too many of these tasty treats when trying to maintain a low-carb diet. How can you balance being healthy and enjoying this summer staple? Here are a few ways that you can do both:
Replace the Fluff
As amazing as marshmallows are, they are the first culprit that needs to be switched out for a healthier alternative. Try going for a sugar-free version that will taste just like the original without the added sugar and carbs. You can go the extra mile by creating your own healthier marshmallows out of meringue.
Upgrade Your Chocolate
S’mores are not the same without the melt-in-your-mouth chocolate component. Choosing low-carb chocolate for s’mores can help you maintain your healthy lifestyle while still allowing you to enjoy this summertime dessert. You can even elevate your s’mores by choosing a chocolate bar with added flavor, like mint chocolate or dark chocolate containing raspberries. Your health and your taste buds will thank you!
Choose Crackers Wisely
Finally, there’s the humble graham cracker. A better choice here is to make your own. Go for your alternative sweetener of choice along with a different flour, such as almond, to prepare a cracker any marshmallow and chocolate square would love to be paired with. Add some flavor by using vanilla or cinnamon to really make your creation shine! You can also shop for some sugar-free versions to satisfy your sweet tooth.
You can have your s’mores and eat them too by switching out sugar-filled ingredients for sugar-free variants or other healthier options. There are no s’more rules, so get creative. Enjoy this classic summer treat without feeling sugar-induced guilt later!
