Craving something sweet that won’t kick you out of ketosis? These keto-friendly dessert recipes are so delicious, you won’t believe they’re low carb!
Can you eat desserts on a keto diet?
For those following a keto diet, the goal is to keep your carbohydrates below a strict limit every day. This keeps the body in a state of ketosis where it burns fat for energy instead of breaking carbohydrates down into glucose.
That may make it seem like desserts are off limits to anyone following a keto way of eating. But I have some good news: with a few ingredient swaps, you can absolutely enjoy desserts and stay in ketosis!
In other words, you can have your keto cake and eat it, too! 😉
