coconut custard perfect for those who crave sweets during the weight loss phase of a low carb diet. With only 2g carbs, eating it won’t stall weight loss.

For some reason, I seem to be doing better with weight loss when I use a sucralose sweetener 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

To keep carbs low, I do recommend using a liquid sweetener rather than one with erythritol or other fillers. If you prefer natural based, stevia drops mixed with liquid monk fruit has a nice flavor. The coconut flavored liquid stevia would be perfect in this recipe!

There’s only 2 grams of total carbs in this delicious coconut custard. And, if you subtract the fiber, that gets it down to only 1 gram net carb.

I’ve been taking into account total carbs and that has really helped boost my weight loss. It could just be that I’m sensitive to sugar alcohols and fiber.
