Have you been wanting to lose weight? Or did a recent doctor’s examination tell you that your blood sugar is too high? Well, we all know the solution to that problem: cut down on sugary treats. But what if you have a sweet tooth (like a lot of us do)? Don’t worry: there are plenty of keto dessert foods you can choose from. Just for you, we put together a list of the most delicious keto desserts – well, in our opinion, at least.
And yes, these keto dessert options are sugar-free and still delicious. Pick up any of them, and you can be sure you’re still following doctor’s orders!
What exactly is keto?
But before anything else, what exactly is keto? To be more specific, the term “keto” refers to a ketogenic diet. According to Healthline, it’s a low-carb, high-fat diet that offers many health benefits.
Undergoing this diet has many health benefits, so many people choose to switch to this lifestyle. One of the benefits is weight loss. Going keto may also help protect you against diabetes, cancer, epilepsy, and even Alzheimer’s disease.
So, a little disclaimer before we continue: we’re not doctors or nutritionists. We’re just sharing with you what we know. If you want to try a ketogenic diet, consult your physician.
Anyway, when you do this diet, your goal is to achieve ketosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state where your body uses fats instead of carbs for fuel. To reach ketosis, limit your carbohydrate intake to a certain amount and fill up on fats instead.
What does going on a ketogenic diet mean for the food you can eat?
Well, to put things simply, all the meal plans you will make? None of them will involve any carbohydrates or sugar whatsoever. That means you’ll say goodbye to silvanas, brownies or cookies, Spanish bread, and more.
If you love sweets and carbs, that last sentence probably made you shudder with displeasure. But as we mentioned, there are various keto dessert foods that you can eat instead. They taste sweet but are practically 0 carb sweets.
What are examples of different keto dessert foods?
What’s on this keto dessert list? To be honest, if we wrote everything down, it would take us DAYS. So what we’ll do instead is mention just a few keto desserts we find delicious.
So, something to consider is that most of them will be made with almond flour or coconut flour. Artificial sweeteners or monk fruit give that sweet taste. They will taste a bit different from the usual taste of our favorite desserts but are still delish keto desserts.
(For a list of keto-friendly ingredients, check out this article from Good Housekeeping.)
In short, you don’t have to say goodbye to your favorite treats. You just have to find desserts that are keto-friendly.
1. Keto snack or desset – Cheesecake fat bombs
What the heck are fat bombs, you ask? Well, they’re dense balls that are full of fat-rich ingredients, like coconut oil and avocado. They can make you feel full at once and satisfy your sweet cravings.
So anyway, these cheesecake fat bombs taste like a peanut butter cheesecake and make a great snack. Make sure you keep them on hand for any sudden sweet cravings. You can also enjoy them for breakfast (cause why not?) or as snacks.
2. Almond flour keto chocolate cake
This is one of the usual keto desserts you can buy. Who says you can’t enjoy chocolate cake while you’re on keto? You won’t have to forego eating this classic dessert. Just substitute regular flour for almond flour, and you’re good to go!
3. Keto foods – Brownies
Does eating brownies give you comfort? Well, even if you switch to a keto diet, you can still enjoy them! Carb-free brownies are possible. We bet you won’t even notice the difference in taste!
4. Filipino Keto dessert – Bibingka
Did this surprise you? Yes, you can still eat one of the most delicious kakanins ever! You can breathe a sigh of relief, especially since December is coming up. It would be a sad Christmas if you couldn’t eat bibingka. Let’s hope more keto Filipino desserts come out.
5. Ice cream
Yes, there is such a thing as keto ice cream! You won’t have to worry about your cool, sweet cravings being left unfulfilled. Different flavors are possible as well.
6. Mug cake – a keto dessert for one
A mug cake is literally a cake inside a mug. Mug cakes are popular as dessert foods because they’re good enough for one serving. If you’re the only one who is going to eat a cake, you won’t want to make a whole cake, right?
So anyway, a keto mug cake is possible, and with different flavors too!
7. Keto dessert – keto pie
If you want to eat a pie instead of a cake, you can! Just make sure that your pie crust is made with low-carb ingredients. Also, the toppings can be chocolate or fruits. To keep with the low-carb theme, make sure to find out which fruits are keto-compliant. Avocado is an example of a fruit you can eat while on a keto diet.
8. Egg custard
Keto egg custard? Why not? This baked dessert is smooth, thick, and creamy and tastes just like the usual custard.
9. Carrot cake
A carrot cake is another classic dessert. And yay, celebrate, because you won’t have to stop eating this either! A good keto carrot cake is one that is so moist and delicious, no one will know it’s made from keto ingredients.
10. Matcha keto cake
If you like unusual desserts, matcha is for you! It’s already non-overly sweet, then when made with a keto-friendly recipe… Well, let’s just say it’s perfect. You might have to stop yourself from eating too much!
