15 Keto Desserts – Yummy Low-Carb Desserts Recipes To Curb Sweet Cravings November 16, 2018

Desserts rule hearts. But irony rules life. Keto diet – that delicious and non-restrictive diet – is quite uptight when it comes to desserts because sugar and flour are a big no-no for ketosis. That hurts (it really does!) if you have many sweet teeth, not just one. But, hey! I have got a dozen ketolicious desserts that are easy to make and will curb your sugar cravings.

From chewy cookies to delicious summery popsicles – we’ve got it all here. And guess what? We are using substitutes that will make the desserts taste 10 times better than the original recipes! (Take no offense, originals, the rest of the world still loves you.) So, put your chef’s cap on and get the party started!
