Switching to a keto diet does not mean you can’t enjoy your favorite desserts. Your favorite desserts can easily be made keto-friendly so you can indulge in sweet treats without breaking your diet. Is there anything better than satisfying your sweet cravings while still feeling amazing?
What desserts can you eat on keto?
Switching to a low-carb diet does not mean you have to cut out all sweets. On a keto diet, you can eat desserts that use almond flour and/or coconut flour instead of traditional flour and desserts that use a low-calorie sweetener like allulose. Carbs in desserts come from the flour and sugar so we replace those with low-carb options to make them keto friendly.
