What is Keto?
Before we dive into the delicious recipes, let’s take a moment to understand what is keto.
Keto, short for ketogenic, is a dietary approach that emphasizes minimal carbohydrate intake, replacing them with healthy fats and moderate protein.
The primary goal of this diet is to put your body into a state of ketosis, where it burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. This metabolic shift can lead to a range of advantages, including weight loss, improved blood sugar control and enhanced mental clarity. Additionally, many people on the keto diet experience reduced cravings and sustained energy levels throughout the day.
Because the keto diet is restrictive, it’s helpful to have a handy guide on hand to simplify your meal planning. Make sure to check out what to eat on keto for a list of keto-friendly foods.
Keto desserts are fantastic because they help you stay on your keto diet, even when you’re feeling like indulging in sugary treats. Explore the following keto recipes to discover your new favorites.
Remember that many of these keto dessert recipes are versatile. Don’t be afraid to experiment by adding nuts, chocolate, shredded coconut or other add-ins. Without further ado, here are our top keto desserts to try today.
Love ginger? These super easy cookies may just become your go-to indulgence. Plus, they’re ready in 20 minutes or less and don’t even need baking. All you have to do is blend Collagen Bars, Brain Octane Oil and ground ginger until you get a doughy consistency. Then shape into round cookies, drizzle with coconut butter and garnish with freshly grated ginger.
Not only does this recipe use healthy fats, but it includes a good dose of collagen. Whip up a batch when you have extra time since making marshmallows from scratch involves refrigerating them for 2-3 hours. After that, layer in some chocolate and customize the add-ins with whatever you’re in the mood for.
One recipe, three options to flavor your fudge! In just five minutes, create three batches of keto fudge base and then flavor with vanilla, chocolate or turmeric. The hardest part will be waiting 30 minutes for the fudge to set. Enjoy this dairy-free fudge with a cup of Bulletproof coffee for the ultimate treat.
These cheesecake-like bars offer up a creamy texture made with coconut milk and cashews. They are the ultimate dairy-free indulgence! Plus, they couldn’t be easier to make. Simply blend ingredients, pour into a cupcake baking tin and pop in the freezer. Then thaw for 4-5 mins to soften when you’re ready to eat.
These mini desserts will hit the spot with just a few bites. Plus, they include collagen and gelatin. All you have to do is mix Collagelatin with water, heat the remaining ingredients, blend everything and then put in silicon molds. Pop them in the fridge to set for one hour and that’s it!
Rich in fat and protein, these popsicles feel more like a snack than a dessert. Blend all popsicle ingredients in a blender and freeze the mixture in popsicle molds for four hours. Eat as they are or top with a turmeric drizzle for an extra kick.
