Mulled "wine" / gluhwein

Makes about 5 servings.

  • 400ml water

  • 200g berries of choice (cranberries, cherries, blackcurrants, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, lingonberries) OR 200ml unsweetened un-diluted berry juice

  • peel (not the pith!) of 1 clementines or 1/2 large orange

  • 50 g xylitol OR erythritol

  • 6 whole cloves

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 2 star anise

  • (optional) 1/2 tsp. molasses (for flavor)

  • 20g fresh ginger

  • 5 cardamom pods

  • 400ml of strong low-carb liquor of choice (rum, bourbon, whisky, vodka, etc.)

  • (optional) a handful of almonds 

Add all ingredients, except the alcohol and almonds, into a pot and bring to a gentle simmer with the lid on.

Add 200ml of alcohol, then re-close the lid and let mull at very low heat for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Once all the spices and flavours have had enough time to meld together, add the rest of the alcohol and stir well.

Add a few drops of stevia if not sweet enough for your palate, then strain out the solids and serve the mulled “wine” hot.

It you’d like, serve with a few almonds added to each glass.

Nutrition Info:

Note: this was calculated using MyFitnessPall so it's not 100% accurate, also the dietary fiber (especially important for sugar-alcohols) has NOT been subtracted from the carb count of the cranberries, meaning the NET CARBS are less than the carbs listed.

net carbs = total carbs - dietary fiber (dietary fiber makes up half of most sugar-alcohol carbs, and most of coconut flour carbs)

the sugar in this recipe comes mostly from the berries. feel free to use less if you don't mind a lighter flavor.

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
