Keto Strawberries & Cream Tacos 🍓
With 2g net carbs Cinnamon Keto Tortillas 💁🏿
Odds are, if you’ve been reading us for a bit, you’ve already met our grain free keto tortillas. The infamous recipe that made our site crash for half a day just hours after posting, and for which you guys have shown much (muuuuch!) love (thank you for writing back!).
In the original post we mentioned the possibility of taking the sweet route, so we decided to give you a full run-through of its capabilities with these keto strawberries and cream tacos.
Though full disclosure, we rarely whip up an entire sweet batch. It’s more likely that a piece of dough gets left behind to be sprinkled with cinnamon sugar (i.e. Swerve) and filled up with some sweet delights.
But every once in a blue moon we do whip up a batch with added cinnamon sugar and top it up with strawberries & (whipped) cream. Or a smear of our cream cheese buttercream frosting (because we’re obsessed).
Whipped Cream vs Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting ☁️
It’s too close to call, so pick your favorite.
But wether you opt for a whipped heavy cream (don’t forget a dash of vanilla extract!) or a smear of our cream cheese buttercream frosting (deliciously sweet and tangy!), we cannot recommend enough you go the grass-fed route.
You will taste the difference.
Don’t forget the basil 🍃
Or the mint. It’s up to you yet again, but we cannot recommend them enough.
Just like in savory seasoning spices play a crucial role, they are also key players when it comes to perking up desserts.
We like a mixture of super fine almond flour and coconut flour best. Add a touch of xanthan gum and baking powder, and we’re golden.
No substituting flours here and the xanthan gum is absolutely necessary. And, if possible, weigh your ingredients for consistent results.
Keto Strawberries & Cream Cinnamon Tacos 🍓
For the cinnamon keto tortillas:
- strawberries diced to taste
- whipped cream or
- 1 batch cream cheese buttercream frosting
- fresh basil or mint ribboned (optional, but highly suggested)
Add almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, Swerve (if using), cinnamon, baking powder and salt to food processor. Pulse until thoroughly combined.
Pour in apple cider vinegar with the food processor running. Once it has distributed evenly, pour in the egg. Followed by the water. Stop the food processor once the dough forms into a ball. The dough will be sticky to touch.
Wrap dough in cling film and knead it through the plastic for a minute or two. Think of it a bit like a stress ball. Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes (and up to two days in the fridge).
Heat up a skillet (preferably) or pan over medium heat. You can test the heat by sprinkling a few water droplets, if the drops evaporate immediately your pan is too hot. The droplets should ‘run’ through the skillet.
Break the dough into eight 1” balls. Roll out between two sheets of parchment or waxed paper with a rolling pin or using a tortilla press. Transfer to skillet and cook over medium heat for just 3 seconds (very important). Flip it over immediately (using a thin spatula or knife, and continue to cook until just lightly golden on each side (though with the traditional charred marks), 30 to 40 seconds. The key is not to overcook them, as they will no longer be pliable or puff up.
These tortillas are best eaten straight away. But feel free to keep some dough handy in your fridge for up to three days.
Serve cinnamon keto tortillas with whipped cream or a generous smear of our cream cheese buttercream frosting, strawberries and basil or mint (optional, but highly suggested!).
One (very important!!) thing: when cooking, coconut flour burns rather rapidly. So while this does help you to get the traditional charred marks of flour tortillas, you do need to keep an eye out for them to keep them from burning. Having said that, you do want your skillet to be very hot in order for the tortillas to cook quickly (in under a minute) and stay pliable. Like any tortilla, if the heat is not high enough it will harden and crack.
