Keto-Friendly Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Keto-Friendly Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Starting Keto is a huge commitment. You’re shifting your diet and even how you think about food to get your body into ketosis to start burning fat. Just getting into ketosis alone requires a huge increase in your attentiveness to what you’re eating and the types of calories you’re ingesting.

I’ve done Keto off and on for several years now and I’m really good at it! Now that I’ve expanded my repertoire of meals to prepare and snacks to satisfy my hunger that are all keto-friendly, it really isn’t that big of a change for me to start a Keto lifestyle, with one exception: desserts.

As you may know, a Keto diet is most successful when you’re in ketosis, which means you have to be consuming so few carbs that your body and metabolism must turn to fat to burn for energy, rather than carbs. This severely limits the number of mainstream dessert products you can have. It’s also the whole basis behind starting NUM!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite ways to satisfy your sweet tooth on Keto without throwing your body out of ketosis by eating sugary, carb-heavy treats.

Homemade Dessert Recipes

Pinterest is a wealth of resources and knowledge on virtually any topic, but recipes abound on that virtual pinboard! If you search for “keto-friendly” followed by nearly any recipe or dish, you’ll likely find a great option to include on your weekly menu while you’re on Keto.

Keto-friendly desserts are no exception. Cheesecakes are especially easy to cater to Keto since you can load them with cream cheese and butter, which are both high in fat and great for a Keto diet. You’ll also find lots of options for baked goods and frostings that use almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol and other sugar substitutes, and lots and lots of butter.

It’s totally not impossible to make homemade keto-friendly desserts, but it does require a hefty investment in keto-friendly baking products. It’s kind of expensive to overhaul your pantry to cater to your new diet!

Fat Bombs

Another staple on the Keto diet is fat bombs. Fat bombs contain tons of fat (usually from butter, peanut butter, or cream cheese as the base) and are great for ramping up your fat levels if needed at the end of the day. The majority of fat bomb recipes are for dessert-inspired bombs, like red velvet cheesecake, cookie dough, or brownie flavors. These are a great go-to if you’re looking for dessert that still serves your fat goals for the day.

Keto Ice Cream

There are some amazing package keto dessert products sold in grocery stores, like keto ice cream. I love the Rebel brand and love the fact that they list the carb count right on the front of the packaging in a big, easy-to-see font. Also, their net carbs are calculated by the entire container, not just a serving, so you can rest easy knowing you’re not going to throw off your carb count for the day just by indulging in some delicious ice cream!

NUM’s offerings

As I’ve said before, I’ve been doing Keto for a while and I understand the commitment and investment required in order to be successful. I learned quickly that I’d have the most success by starting strong and allowing myself balance in the number of treats I was consuming. I’ve never done well with giving up a craving cold-turkey, so knowing I could create delicious, keto-friendly desserts to satisfy my sweet tooth while on the Keto diet has made all the difference.

I started NUM Gourmet Desserts to produce these treats in bulk for those who don’t want to commit to the time required to perfect a Keto-friendly baked good, or the financial investment required in overhauling your pantry to be stocked with Keto-compliant ingredients.

In our online shop, we list the net carb count right in the item description so you can see how our desserts align with your Keto goals. If you’re looking for a new dessert to try, some of my favorite products are:
