So, you’ve revamped your weekly menu to include lots of brand-new, keto-friendly meals and you’ve rounded up snack ideas that fit the plan — but what about desserts? Limiting sugar is an important part of the keto diet but, thankfully, that doesn’t mean you have to give up treats altogether. With these recipes, it’s easy to satisfy your sweet tooth. Just take these fudgy brownies, for example. They’re rich and decadent and only have 1 gram of sugar per serving!

Keto Chocolate Ice Cream
This keto-friendly chocolate ice cream delivers! The egg yolk-based custard is the key to its full-bodied creaminess, while good-quality cocoa powder insures a rich chocolate flavor. We tested various keto-approved sugar substitutes and found some to be gritty or simply too sweet. Stevia adds just the right amount of sweetness without changing the texture. Take care not to over-churn, to avoid graininess.

Black and White Keto Fat Bombs
Keto-friendly and packed with healthy fats, these little nuggets have the texture of cold and creamy fudge — minus all the sugar.

Keto Pumpkin Pie
You don’t need to wait for the holidays to enjoy this keto diet-friendly pie! Almond and coconut flour create a nutty crust and a touch of molasses in the filling provides the warm brown sugar notes you expect from the classic — and that’s something worth enjoying year-round.

Calling all coconut lovers: These keto-friendly macaroons are great plain, or change them up with some grated citrus zest or chopped herbs like rosemary folded into the batter.

One of the easiest ways to treat yourself after dinner (while sticking to your keto plan) is to serve a cheese course for dessert. And, while this creamy, smoked brie takes a bit of planning, the extra work is worth it — it will feel every bit as rich and decadent as a sweet dessert.
