There are rare desserts that don’t just look good but deliver delicious taste. Diets and nutritional plans low in carbs but high in fat. The low-carb, high-fat design aims to promote ketosis in the body. This makes the body hyper-efficient at converting fat to energy.
However, this also makes finding ways to kill those sweet tooth cravings a lot harder at times. Most desserts aren’t designed with a low-carb mentality. This massive gap in the baking industry was hard to miss, causing lifestyle influencers and nutritional experts to create viable and sustainable dietary substitutes like keto-friendly chocolate chips.
Chocolate Peanut-Butter Keto Cups
These delicious chocolatey, peanut-butter keto-cups are a perfect treat to kill that sweet-tooth craving or get an influx of fat for the day. One of the best parts about these treats is that they are kept in the freezer, which means you can store them and chow-down one at a time (if you can save yourself to only one, that is!)
The ingredients are simple as you’ll only need coconut oil, peanut butter, heavy cream, cocoa powder, liquid stevia, vanilla extract, salt, and roasted salted peanuts.
Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, you’ll want to melt the coconut oil and mix in the peanut butter, heavy cream, cocoa powder, liquid stevia, salt, and vanilla extract. Then, pour into molds, sprinkle the peanuts on top, and freeze for an hour! That’s it; you’ve got easy chocolate-peanut-butter cups that are keto-friendly and delicious.
Keto Creme Brulee
Who doesn’t love a creme brulee? It’s one of the most popular desserts, and it speaks to everyone and anyone. Not only is creme brulee a favorite, but keto-friendly. This might come as a surprise, but you won’t believe how simple the ingredient list is.
All you’ll need to make a gorgeous, decadent, lip-smacking homemade creme brulee is four egg yolks, vanilla extract, heavy whipping cream, and a low-calorie natural sweetener. That’s it! Four simple ingredients can be found at really any grocery store.
Whisk the egg yolks and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Next, you’ll use sweetener and heavy whipping cream in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly. Add in the yolk and vanilla mixture and keep whisking until well combined. Divide the mixture into four ramekins, and add an inch of boiling water.
Bake four ramekins in the preheated oven for about half an hour or until set. Then sprinkle the remaining natural sweetener on top of each ramekin and use a torch to bring it to a golden brown. Now, enjoy!
Keto Peanut-Butter Fudge Fat Bomb
Another super simple ingredient list is coming up next with these three-ingredient keto-friendly peanut-butter fudge fat bombs. Talk about mouth-watering!
All you’ll need to get these bad boys started is unsweetened peanut butter, coconut oil, unsweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk, and (optionally) liquid vanilla stevia. This simple ingredient list makes these peanut-butter fudge bombs a must-have in every keto-persons recipe book.
Not only is the ingredient list simple, but so is the production process. Microwave the peanut butter and coconut oil together until it’s mostly melted, add to a blender with the almond milk and liquid stevia, and blend until well-combined.
Pour this mixture into a loaf pan, slide it into the fridge, and you’re done. In about two hours, you’ll have an undeniably delicious treat.
No-Churn Keto Strawberry Ice-Cream
Capping this list is a crowd favorite and may be a shock to some. No churn strawberry ice cream that’s both keto-friendly and homemade.
While most of the treats on this list have short ingredient lists, this one asks for a little more attention. To tackle homemade keto-friendly ice cream, you’ll need; heavy whipping cream, chopped strawberries, low-calorie natural sweetener, vodka (yes, vodka!), vanilla extract, xanthan gum, and salt.
Most importantly, you’ll need an immersion blender and a mason jar.
You combine all of the ingredients, put them in the immersion blender, and use an up-and-down motion for about a minute or until peaks have formed. Cover that baby up, and drop it in the freezer. Stir every 30-40 minutes until the ice cream has reached your ideal consistency, and start enjoying it!
