Are you doing really well with your new keto lifestyle but struggling to shake your sweet tooth cravings? Do you think that dessert is out of the question because you have to cut back on the carbs and sugar? Well, in theory, you’re right. Your local bakery is a no-go zone for anyone on the keto diet but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a decadent dessert at all. In fact, you can enjoy all the good stuff without affecting your ketosis. All it takes is a few minutes in the kitchen and you’ll be satisfying those sugar cravings in no time.
Traditional desserts may be delicious but they often leave you feeling sluggish after the sugar rush has subsided. Keto desserts, on the other hand, incorporate a good amount of fat which leaves you feeling full so that you are satisfied with one portion and aren’t tempted to overeat. Our test kitchen has created their own unique spin on timeless ice cream and brownie recipes to bring you delicious alternatives that are not only keto friendly but will not cause a drastic spike in your blood sugar levels.
Our tasty keto ice cream and keto chocolate brownies are filled with omega 3, antioxidants and protein to help keep your ketone production and immune system firing on all cylinders. Healthy keto desserts that helps you lose weight, what more could you ask for?!
Strawberry Keto Ice Cream
4 tablespoons Heavy whipping cream
½ teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
1 pinch Sea salt
6 drops Liquid stevia
3.2 ounces Frozen strawberries (13g total carbs per 8 oz)
You can substitute the frozen strawberries with the following alternatives:
Frozen blackberries (14g total carbs per 8 oz)
Frozen raspberries (15g total carbs per 8 oz)
- Mix all of the ingredients using an electric blender until smooth. Our handy tip: The berries must be frozen to ensure you get a thick, ice cream like texture.
- You can serve this straight away or pop it in the freezer for 20 minutes before serving.
This recipe is wonderful for hot summer days or as an after meal treat. Sprinkle coconut flakes or chia seeds on top for extra texture and crunch.
