Dessert and carbs go hand in hand, but when following a keto diet you don’t have to give up sweet treats entirely. With options such as sugar-free sweeteners like stevia and erythritol or low-carb alternatives like yacon syrup as healthy sweeteners, these recipes will satisfy cravings without throwing you out of ketosis.
1. Keto Peanut Butter Mousse
Keto Peanut Butter Mousse is an easy and delectable dessert recipe perfect for anyone seeking to please their sweet tooth while remaining keto-friendly and low in carbohydrates. Perfectly suitable as a quick keto-friendly treat with zero added carbs!
Mousse is a delicious dessert typically created using whipped cream, sometimes mixed with flavorings such as chocolate or fruit puree for added taste and texture. One of the easiest to prepare and store in the fridge until ready for serving, mousse makes for an effortless dessert option!
This keto mousse combines two delicious treats – chocolate mousse and peanut butter! This indulgent and delectable treat will please anyone who loves both flavors! Additionally, its creation can be completed quickly with only five ingredients needed!
Note that making keto mousse requires some unique ingredients that may require you to purchase online or visit specialty stores; however, these aren’t hard to come by and make for delicious keto desserts without sugar and other unhealthy components!
For this mousse recipe, you will require heavy whipping cream, cream cheese and natural peanut butter (Smucker’s natural is an ideal option with no additional oils or preservatives), along with full-fat coconut milk labeled as “coconut milk” rather than simply “coconut.”
Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and use an electric mixer to whip them until stiff peaks appear, similar to that of whipped cream. This should take approximately 3-4 minutes depending on your mixer strength. Spoon into serving dishes immediately or chill until ready to enjoy!
2. Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you enjoy chocolate chip cookies, this low carb version with only 2.8 net carbs per cookie may become one of your go-to recipes! A reader favorite, it was featured in The Wholesome Yum Easy Keto Carboholics’ Cookbook as one of its reader favorites!
Make these delectable cookies with several key ingredients! Mixing almond flour and baking powder, creaming softened butter with sweetener (use either a hand mixer or stand mixer for this step), adding eggs and vanilla extract before slowly adding your dry ingredients from step 1. Finally, stir in sugar-free chocolate chips of your choice (Lily’s brand are my personal preference!). Finally add in your sugar free chocolate chips – I prefer Lily’s brand but you could substitute with any brand!
Refrigerating these cookies before serving them makes for the best experience and an extra special treat! Enjoy them alone or pair them with some keto fudge brownies to add an extra special treat!
On a keto diet, milk typically poses a barrier due to its carb-heavy composition (up to 12 net carbs per cup according to USDA estimates). But with some simple recipe modifications, you can enjoy an equally satisfying chocolate milk drink that only has 3 net carbs per serving – simply swap cocoa and monk fruit liquid sweetener for milk in this delicious recipe from Yummy Keto Cooking.
People following a low carb diet can often become confused when trying out recipes with different carb counts. Myfitnesspal and cronometer might show “9 g of net carbs” or “7 g of net carbs”, yet these numbers are inaccurate – these measurements don’t take into account fibre or sugar alcohols which are true measures of carbohydrates present in a food product.
These desserts are among the best on the keto diet and require minimal effort or time to prepare. In fact, you don’t even need a blender!
3. Keto Ice Cream
Keto ice cream is a delicious treat that’s also healthy. Crafted without traditional sugars, so as not to interfere with a keto diet. Many brands employ sugar substitutes like xylitol or erythritol which have less than half the caloric intake as regular sugar and will not affect blood sugar levels or promote tooth decay.
Homemade ice cream requires several steps before it can be frozen, the first of which being to allow the mixture to cool before freezing it. This prevents clumps and makes scooping easier. When making homemade ice cream with coconut or almond milk as alternatives to heavy cream (they both contain less calories, though less fat), expect your ice cream to become more icy than expected.
Rebel Creamery’s low carb ice creams are delicious and offer an extensive range of flavors, while being low in net carbs – ideal for keto diet followers. Nubocha’s gelato also boasts low net carb counts while being composed solely of natural ingredients, spring water, and allulose which contains almost zero calories – conveniently found at grocery stores nationwide via their store locator feature.
Keto dessert options abound, from cheesecake and brownies to cookies and more. Each dessert can easily be prepared and shared among family members; additionally, these treats can even be made ahead of time to serve at special events such as parties.
When purchasing a keto dessert, always read the label. Avoid brands containing toxic seed oils, artificial sweeteners or corn fiber. Instead, look for products with natural sweeteners and as few ingredients as possible. A great way to satisfy cravings quickly is to consume smaller servings more frequently throughout the day – this will help your daily carb consumption stay under 20 grams!
4. Keto Mousse
If you’re in search of an easy, no-bake Keto chocolate mousse dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth without disrupting your keto diet, look no further. With only three ingredients and 10 minutes needed to put together, this keto chocolate mousse recipe makes the ideal treat for weeknight dinners or special events like Valentine’s Day! Make this rich and decadent dessert today to impress all your family and friends.
This no-bake keto mousse recipe requires heavy whipping cream, sugar free cocoa powder, and either erythritol or stevia for sweetness. When choosing your sweetener powdered is best as using granulated can cause gritty textures in your keto mousse! Erythritol gives many low carb dessert recipes their light and fluffy textures so anyone can easily create this tasty keto dessert treat! It is one of the easiest, quickest, and delicious keto desserts anyone can make!
You will require a large bowl and mixer for this recipe, mixing heavy whipping cream with sweetener on medium-low speed until it thickens into stiff peaks and starts to thicken further. Add cocoa powder and continue beating. Finally, fold in your beaten egg whites gradually to prevent deflation of the mousse; be careful when doing this step though as overstirring can create dense or grainy textures.
Once everything has been combined, transfer the mousse to individual serving dishes and serve immediately or place in the refrigerator to chill before eating. For an extra special touch, garnish your mousse with whipped cream, grated chocolate or fresh mint for an added special touch – this keto dessert recipe will certainly satisfy any sweet tooth.
Store this delicious keto dessert in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days; its texture may change slightly over time while its taste remains unchanged. Alternatively, freeze and store for up to two months; once defrosted it can be served at room temperature.
