As for fast and super easy keto desserts, try these to stay on track.
1. RICE PUDDING
It's Skinny isn't just for savory dishes! You can make a delicious keto-friendly rice pudding using coconut, and It’s Skinny rice. Top your rice pudding with a few berries, some chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon for added sweetness.
Rice pudding is the ultimate comfort food—creamy, filling, and tasty. It’s truly the perfect keto dessert.
2. AVOCADO MOUSSE
If you've spent any time online researching super easy keto desserts, you've probably run into an avocado mousse recipe. It sounds a little strange, but with cocoa powder and keto-friendly sweetener, avocado blends into a smooth, creamy, delicious dessert treat.
Avocado mousse has a similar texture to pudding or a traditional mousse. Despite being made from avocado, it doesn’t taste like the green fruit (yes, avocado is actually a fruit). It just tastes like a decadent, chocolaty treat!
Are chocolate cravings driving you mad? You can still have a bit of chocolate on keto. Keep the piece small and choose dark chocolate (70% dark or higher). There are also specifically-for-keto chocolate options, which can keep you on track.
Everyone has a chocolate craving every once in a while, and letting yourself enjoy a square or two of a high-quality, rich piece will crush those cravings. The key to eating chocolate on keto is to savor it slowly. Enjoy each taste. Smell the chocolate and eat it mindfully, so you can fully experience this delicious treat.
4. BERRIES WITH CREAM
In moderation, berries—strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries—are still allowed on keto. If you want to enjoy a sweet treat, berries can be a great option. Enjoy a few berries in a cloud of heavy whipping cream. Sprinkle on a few mint leaves or a dash of spice like nutmeg or cinnamon. Top a small scoop of keto ice cream with some berries.
Try a few frozen berries if you're looking for a slow-to-savor but super easy keto dessert. You can let them melt in your mouth. Berries are one of the best answers to dessert cravings on keto. Just be sure to limit yourself, as it's easy to go overboard (and you still want to stay within your target carbohydrate intake so you don't go out of ketosis).
5. FAT BOMBS
Another internet favorite keto dessert is "fat bombs.” It’s a funny name, but keto fat bombs can be a great dessert idea, especially if you want an easy sweet bite. Typical fat bombs are similar to energy balls. They're made with simple ingredients like coconut oil, cream cheese, or nut butter.
People often mix in spices, coconut, cocoa, or nuts with their fat bombs, as well as a keto-friendly sweetener like erythritol or monk-fruit. Fat bombs are filling and customizable, making them a nice option for keto dieters. Make them ahead and pop them in the freezer so you can grab them and go.
6. KETO CHEESECAKES
When you consider cheesecake, it's often a low-carb dessert anyway. The sugar (and the crust) gives cheesecake all the carbs. You can make a keto cheesecake using cream cheese, yogurt, vanilla, and eggs, depending on your preference. Use a keto-friendly sweetener to make sure it stays low carb. Whip up these same ingredients to enjoy a satisfying keto cheesecake fluff.
Keto cheesecakes are typically crustless, although you could use nuts and butter to make a keto-friendly cheesecake crust. Again, use a keto-friendly sweetener in the crust and bake (or refrigerate if you’re following a no-bake recipe).
7. NUTS AND NUT BUTTERS
It’s important to note that many nut butters contain sugar and carbohydrates. Most brand-name peanut butters are very sweet and not keto friendly. However, there are keto nut butters out there. Look for natural options without added sweetening and other ingredients.
Macadamia, pecan, and Brazil nuts are the most keto-friendly nut options. To amp up the natural sweetness, you can toast nuts and add spices, including cinnamon. Make your own pecan or macadamia nut butter in the blender, and enjoy a spoonful when you need a pick-me-up—pair nuts with a soft cheese like brie for a French take on an end-of-meal treat.
BONUS KETO DESSERT IDEA: DECAF COFFEE OR HERBAL TEA
If you’re looking to signify the end of a meal, you can try this great psychological trick—drink a cup of something warm like decaf coffee or herbal tea. When we enjoy a slow, sippable beverage like coffee or tea, we get that same sense of closure to a meal.
Often when we're craving dessert, it's really about the lingering conversation and sense of celebration that accompanies the end of a great dinner. We can get those same social boosts by simply sipping a keto-friendly warm drink while we visit with our friends.
It's more than possible to enjoy dessert on keto. Plenty of delicious and satisfying keto-friendly treats can bring closure to a meal and help us feel satisfied and full. Start by enjoying some of your favorite dishes, made keto-friendly with It’s Skinny.
Make dessert a special, occasional treat, and when you decide to indulge, choose one of these super easy keto dessert options so you can stay on track. Cheers to your keto success!
