Keto Christmas desserts

If you are on a weight loss journey, then you might have heard or considered doing a Keto diet. To put it simply, keto is a low-carb, high-fat diet that is designed to burn fat and eliminate almost all carbs which may help many people to lose pounds. Aside from weight loss, there are also a number of benefits a keto diet can offer. One is that it is claimed that going on a keto diet may boost one’s heart health and protect brain function. It can also help control blood sugar levels and reduces the risk of certain cancers. 

Generally, you should be able to save more than usual when you are on a keto diet because there will be certain foods that you need to stay away from. And especially now that the holidays are coming, lots of delicious and tempting treats will be on your way! But you do not need to actually deprive yourself of these holiday flavors. The best way to have these Christmas treats while being on a keto diet is to make them on your own! And if you really want to save your pocket, here are some tips on how you can successfully do Keto on a budget:

Shop locally – most stores or local farmer markets tend to sell meat, vegetables, dairy, and egg at a very cheap price.

Buy in bulk – the best way to stock up and save on ingredients! 

Meal prep in advance – this strategy will save you time and money because you already have meals to eat for the whole week. 

Choose frozen over fresh – most frozen fruits and vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and berries are more affordable as opposed to fresh ones. What’s more is that they will last a lot longer as they will stay refrigerated. 

Don’t mind the fancy and packed keto foods – you will most likely see some meal replacement bars that are advertised to be keto-friendly. However, you can survive without those. They are definitely more expensive and most probably less fulfilling once you consume it.

It is also good to note that when baking, the most used and trusted keto-friendly flours are almond flour and coconut flour. Blanched almond flour is by far one of the best and most popular flours to use on a keto diet because it bakes well. It is also best to use sugar free sweeteners if you want to achieve low-carb desserts. Furthermore, cream cheese, greek yogurt, butter, and heavy cream will be your best friends. 

Still don’t believe me that you can have delicious desserts while on keto this holiday? Then here are just a few lists on what you can make keto-style! 

  • Keto cheesecake
  • Keto chocolate mousse
  • Keto chocolate chip cookies
  • Keto donuts
  • Keto brownies
  • And more!
