One thing that I really love about the ketogenic diet is that it doesn’t make me try to ignore my sweet tooth. Keto desserts are always around to save the day.
When your body enters ketosis, you often find that the craving for sweets disappears.
However, if you’ve been eating sweet your whole life, like me, then something will mentally trigger you making you want to eat some sweets.
And that’s alright!
On keto, there are plenty of awesome desserts that are easy to make that will satisfy your sweet tooth cravings.
You don’t have to “eat healthy” by sticking to fruits for dessert. Most fruits are going to be a negative when it comes to your keto diet anyway. The list of keto approved fruits isn’t very long.
What’s great is that there are so many different keto recipes that you can easily find a substitute for whatever your favorite dessert is and it won’t knock you out of ketosis.
Sugar-Free Caramel Sauce
The only thing people can disagree on with regards to caramel is how to pronounce. This sugar-free caramel sauce can be doused over anything without guilt.
Put it on top of a brownie batter mug cake and you have the makings of the ultimate keto dessert.

Peanut Butter Fluff Fat Bombs
If you’re going to survive on the ketogenic diet then you need to have a good index of keto fat bombs. Not only do they taste great but they also help you reach your fat macros for the day which is very important on keto.
Peanut butter and chocolate just seems to be one of those combos that was meant to be together even if they orginated worlds apart. That’s okay though because we never have to worry about them being separated again.
This one is best made the day before, so the flavors can combine.

Keto Chocolate Mousse
What you’ll begin to notice with a lot of desserts is that many of them live a double life.
Not only are they awesome desserts, but they are awesome fat bombs as well. The reason why is because many of them require a ton of fat to make and that’s a good thing when you’re doing keto.
Cream cheese seriously almost always makes things better.
The richness from this creamy mousse comes from the combination of butter, cream cheese and heavy whipping cream!
You can eat the mousse right out of the mixing bowl or freeze it to get an ice cream like texture going on.

Easy No Bake Cheesecake
That’s all you have to say. You really don’t need to say anymore because the word cheesecake is enough to get me to sit down at the table, tuck my napkin into my shirt and go to town on some things.
I tried to tell you that cream cheese is a blessing in disguise when it comes to keto desserts. The only problem with it is that you’ll use so much of it you’ll find yourself going to the grocery store solely to grab some more cream cheese.
Maybe I should learn how to make my own someday.

Carbless Chocolate Peanut Butter Pecan Bark
I’ll admit that any time I hear the word bark I never associate it with dessert but there are dessert barks and everyone that I’ve had so far is delicious.
This carbless wonder is no different.
Make some bark. Eat some bark.

Hot and Smokey Keto Chocolate Truffles
See, you might think that truffles are only for the snobby people but they aren’t. They are for peole on keto and snobby people.
That’s right, you get to sit next to snobby people while eating snobby desserts. The only difference is that your dessert will help you live longer while the snobby people’s desserts will slowly melt their insides.
Okay, maybe that won’t happen but it’s easier to think of things that way.

3 Ingredient Paleo Vegan No Bake Coconut Cookies
You really can’t ask for something simpler than that. The fact that it uses every major diet in its title is probably the only reason you might not try to make these but that seems like a silly reason.

Keto No Bake Cookies
This recipe gets the award for the least descriptive name.
It’s made from peanut butter so really that is all you need to know.

No Bake Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars
If you didn’t know any better you would think that the keto diet is solely based on peanut butter and cream cheese.
While that isn’t the case it might just be a strange coincidence that you can make a lot of great things with these two awesome items.
However, you never see peanut butter and cream cheese in the same room which is quite suspicious.

No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake
I found it. Peanut butter and cream cheese enter the same room at the same time and they make for a delicious combination.
Make this dessert. You won’t regret it.
Mascarpone Cheese Mousse and Berries
Mascarpone cheese always weirds me out because it’s not really anything. It’s just there.
It’s the tofu of cheeses and can be used in anything. However, when it’s used in a dessert that is usually a good thing because then the desserts taste awesome and have volume.
Plus, have you ever had a bad mousse? I doubt it.
Key Lime Cheesecake in a Jar
My dad loves key lime pie so I love key lime pie. There is just something about tart desserts that make my eyes light up and it isn’t the tartness.
This is delicious.
