It’s fiesta time, baby! Sweeten up your Cinco de Mayo festivities with a keto-friendly version of the famous Choco Taco.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 37 minutes + Chilling Time
Servings: 4 - 5 tacos
Taco Shells¼ cup Almond Flour
5 tbsp Coconut Oil
1/3 cup Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, Chopped
5 tsp Liquid Stevia
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Topping2 tbsp Salted Peanuts, Crushed
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a bowl, whisk well the almond flour, cocoa and xanthan gum.
In a separate bowl, beat the butter and stevia. Add the almond flour mixture, egg and vanilla and beat well to combine.
Divide the dough into 4 equal portions (or 5 portions if desired) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread each portion into a 5-inch circle (or smaller if dividing into 5 portions), using the back of a wet spoon.
Bake for 6 - 7 minutes.
Remove from the oven. Carefully lift each warm disc and drape over the edge of a loaf pan (or in any other way that works), making the baked side the outside of a shell. Let set for 15 minutes, then freeze for 30 minutes.
Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat. Turn off the heat when half melted.
Add the unsweetened chocolate. Leave a couple minutes and then stir until melted. Add the liquid stevia and vanilla, and mix.
Ice Cream Filling
Let your Mammoth Creameries frozen custard flavor-of-choice thaw on the counter for 15-20 minutes.
Remove the taco shells from the freezer and fill each shell with the ice cream. Push it even with the rim of the shell, using a butter knife.
Freeze for 2 - 3 hours.
Re-melt the reserved chocolate over low heat.
Remove the tacos from the freezer and dip the top of each taco in the chocolate and sprinkle with the crushed peanuts.
Freeze again to set the chocolate for 20 - 30 minutes.
