So I am working on keto Christmas recipes next week and boy do I need your help!

It has been an “age” since I did a whole big Christmas cook up and I want to make some fab recipes that we can all use come the “silly season”.

I need loads of inspiration for keto Christmas blog recipes, some for our opening mag in December for Keto Life Magazine and for Just Cook Magazine, PLUS my FREE Advent Calendar if you are lucky enough to have purchased a copy of Keto Eats between Oct 11-23rd, 2018.

I would love it if you could comment below and give me any ideas of what recipes you would love to be cooking this Christmas.  Is there any recipes, meal ideas, sweets, or drinks that you would like me to “ketofy”?

My memories of Christmas lunch was always a lot of seafood (I grew up pescatarian) ham and turkey for the meat eaters, oh and roast pork with crackle.  I loved scorched almonds, and the loads of salted nuts that were always out for easy snacking.   Desserts were always a pavlova and a Sarah Lea French Cheesecake.  I don’t think anyone was making Christmas dessert back in my young days moreso just buying them already done, with the exception of the odd trifle.  I loved my grandmothers cookies with their pink icing and hundreds of thousands so I may have to try and crack that recipe in a keto way.

Rums balls were always at someone’s house.  I wasn’t a fan as a kid but I do love the recipe for the ones pictured below.  Get it here>>

A keto Christmas will be easy for us with simple meat and cheese platters.  This is one of my favourite kind of ways to eat any time of year, but I really want to make recipes for us all that take no time in the kitchen so we can relax and entertain or be entertained on the day.

The platter below and recipes are available in my Mad Christmas eBook, link below

I have a few ideas and plans for the menu but really would love your input as the recipes I make I want to be ones you will too. 

I am definitely thinking of making my keto vanilla slice recipe available, and I think I will have to include a few favourites like the Lamington Cheesecake that was crazy popular last year.  If you have not made this “very easy” cheesecake then you have to get onto it.  It is so delicious!

So please comment below with your ideas for recipes that I can recreate for a special keto Christmas for 2018 and possibly use in one of my projects as well.

I too have my thinking cap on and will have all recipes ready, listed and wanting some testing by the end of the week.  I love the time I get to think up some new modern twists on old favourites and I really think that is a theme I will go with for at least one magazine.

What would you like to eat this keto Christmas?
