Research by healthy meal box delivery company, Green Chef, reveals a surge in interest in keto-friendly desserts.

In the past month, there has been a 400% increase in online searches for “keto desserts” while “keto dessert” queries are also up by 170%. 

So for those following a keto diet, how can you stick to keto while still enjoying a sweet treat and satisfying cravings?

Registered nutritionist and head chef at Green Chef, Anna Tebbs, shares some of her favourite keto-friendly desserts at home.

Chocolate avocado mousse

This dessert is perfect for chocolate lovers. Simply blend ripe avocados with unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract and a keto-friendly sweetener. Top with a couple of strawberries to finish it off.

Low carb cheesecake

Searches for keto cheesecake are up 50% in the past year, perhaps due to the recipe’s popularity on TikTok, where the sweet treat currently has 7 million views. 

To create your crust combine almond flour with butter and let it set. Mix together cream cheese, eggs, vanilla extract and a keto-friendly sweetener. Bake until set, and enjoy this keto take on a classic dessert.

Chia seed pudding

Mix unsweetened almond or coconut milk with chia seeds, sweetener and vanilla extract. Stir the mixture, then set it for five minutes before stirring again. Refrigerate for at least two to three hours or overnight and serve cold. You can experiment with toppings based on your favourite flavours, like chopped nuts, coconut flakes or cocoa nibs.

Peanut butter cups

These peanut butter cups make a great dessert or on-the-go snack while sticking with a keto diet. Melt sugar-free dark chocolate with coconut oil and pour it into muffin liners or a silicone mould. Allow them to set in the freezer then add a spoonful of natural peanut butter and top with more melted chocolate. Freeze until firm.

As well as offering a range of delicious keto meals, Green Chef also offers a range of keto dessert bars perfect for snacking or an after-dinner treat. Visit the Green Chef website for more inspiration.
