In this post, I’m sharing a keto dessert roundup of my favorite desserts I’ve ever ketofied. Yep, every dessert you will read about below is keto-friendly so you can have your cake and eat it too!
How To Eat Dessert on the Keto Diet
Before we get to my keto dessert roundup, I thought I’d share a few quick tips with you so you can make sure you’re not hurting your diet and weight loss goals.
First, opt for items that are free of sugar
This is KEY to staying in ketosis. That said, you have to be careful about sugar substitutes too. Just because it says “sugar-free” on the label, doesn’t mean it is completely keto-friendly. You’re always better off making things from scratch so that you know what’s in it.
I haven’t met a dessert that can’t be made keto-friendly
There are so many amazing substitutes available that can transform your calorie and carb-laden favorites into keto-friendly treats. Simple swaps like using almond flour or coconut flour to replace the white flour are one option. While the ratios may change, swapping keto-friendly sugars for your traditional white and brown sugar is also possible.
Always read the label on anything you’re adding to your recipes
Certain chocolate chips will kick you out of ketosis. Coconut flakes or nuts with added sweeteners can too. It’s critical you read your labels for any dessert you’re making. Whether it’s a dessert or not – you don’t want to ruin your diet by adding something that you shouldn’t.
