This is delicious!!! But don’t take my word for it- go try it out yourself! It feels like your having dessert on the hCG diet when in reality, you are mostly just eating ice and water.
hCG Diet Phase 2 Lemon Slushie – just 8 Calories
LEMON JUICE (USUALLY 1/2 LEMON-1 LEMON’S WORTH) 1/3 CUP WATER 7-9 ICE CUBES STEVIA TO TASTE (ORGANIC STEVIA IS BEST MOST NATURAL TASTE)
All you do is blend it up all together- the stevia in it is what will create the great thick, frothy texture. If you don’t use stevia the texture would not be nearly as pleasant. I know the recipe is so simple that it might be like, why are you making a recipe for that? But honestly, that’s the very reason I needed to make it! It had never occurred to me that i could make something tasty to eat that was so simple with only 2 ingredients aside from water until I was desperate for something “yummy” on p2 of the Bettabods hCG Diet Protocol.
Preheat oven to 190°C. I don’t line my baking sheet when I make these, but you absolutely can with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
Cut pears in half, then cut a small sliver off the underside so the pears sit flat when placed upright on the baking sheet. See video above for visual. Using a scoop or melon baller (or even a teaspoon), core out the seeds. Arrange pears, facing up, on the baking sheet. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon– feel free to add more cinnamon if you’d like.
Whisk the stevia liquid and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Drizzle most of it all over the pears, reserving about 2 Tablespoons for after the pears are finished baking.
Bake pears for about 25 minutes until soft and lightly browned on the edges. Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle with remaining mixture. Serve warm yogurt. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Make Ahead Instructions: Pears are best baked right before they are served, but you could bake them completely and refrigerate for up to 5 days. Then, warm back up in the oven for 10 minutes and top with remaining maple syrup mixture, granola, and yogurt right before serving.
Tasty, and just a nice HCG treat! Found this awesome recipe for mock “meringue” cookies. They are made from egg white so are a good source of protein. They haven’t stalled my weight loss but do take it into account as part of your daily protein intake on Phase 2! Enjoy they are yummo
3 Egg whites Pinch of cream of tartar
Pinch of salt
1/2 t vanilla (or almond) extract Stevia

Drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet lined with foil.
Bake in 250 oven for 20 minutes.
Tips & Tricks
I turn the broiler on for a few second in order to get them to have a golden top
I usually sprinkle a little Stevia(to taste) on top of the cookies instead of adding it while baking as Stevia tends to be bitter if baked.
I have also sprinkled them with a mixture of cinnamon, Stevia and a dash of nutmeg. YUM!
Experiment with flavored Stevia to find something you like
