When it comes to indulging your sweet tooth, you need something quick and easy. Too many recipes–especially keto ones–have a long list of ingredients, often very specialized ones, that require hours of slaving over the stove. Fortunately, keto enthusiasts have another option that can help them to satisfy a sweet tooth: simple 3-ingredient keto desserts.
Our recipe section offers lots of ideas that will spark your culinary creativity when it comes to simple and easy desserts you can whip up in no time. Here are just a few simple keto desserts.
3-Ingredient Keto Chocolate Desserts
Chocolate tends to be the go-to option for many people who are dealing with a sugar craving. The good news is that there are tons of keto chocolate recipes out there that require only three ingredients.
Many of the top brands of keto-friendly chocolate, like Bake Believe, offer a variety of chocolates to suit your tastes and recipe needs, such as white, dark, and milk chocolate. Here are some 3-ingredient recipes that feature chocolate as the shining star:
Keto Chocolate-Covered Almonds: Using just chocolate chips and coconut oil to create the perfectly textured chocolate coating for nuts, this recipe is as simple as it gets. We used dark chocolate chips, but you could use whatever type suits you best. Almonds pack a protein punch, but you can also experiment with other types of nuts.
Keto Chocolate Bar (Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Copycat): If you want a super simple sweet fix, you can’t go wrong with our Hershey’s Milk Chocolate copycat recipe. Using just two ingredients (4 oz of keto chocolate chips and a couple of teaspoons of coconut oil), you get a chocolate delight in about 30 minutes.
Keto Chocolate Mousse: Looking for something light and airy without sacrificing that chocolate flavor? Keto chocolate mousse gives you what you have been searching for. It brings the flavor and the fat with heavy whipping cream, unsweetened cocoa powder, and a dash of erythritol.
Chocolate Ganache: No matter what you want to dip in chocolate, this chocolate ganache recipe will save the day. Calling for just two ingredients (stevia-sweetened chocolate chips and heavy cream), it’s easy to make while also being rich and delicious. You can dip anything you like (that’s keto–friendly, of course) into this delightful ganache, but we’d start with berries, candied bacon, and sugar cookies. You can even pack in a protein punch by replacing the heavy cream with a chocolate protein shake.
Easy Keto Fruit Dessert Recipes
Fruit is another sweet option that can be enhanced to satisfy your sweet tooth. Berries are a great alternative to the sweetness of chocolate–and they are perfectly permissible on a keto diet. Some of these fruit dessert recipes use added sweeteners, while others rely on the natural sweetness of fruit. With these options lined up, you’ll be able to put together a dessert that causes your taste buds to tingle with 3 ingredients or even fewer.
Keto Raspberry Sugar-Free Sorbet: If you don’t count all of the various forms of water (boiling, cold, and ice), this dessert has just three ingredients: raspberries, cream, and gelatin. Combining these creates a light and creamy dessert in just ten minutes, with a little extra to store in the freezer for tomorrow night.
Ricotta and Strawberry Puree: Okay, technically this recipe has 5 ingredients, if you include the cinnamon and vanilla added as a flavor boost, but you can absolutely make it with just three ingredients. This recipe is not just fast, creamy, and sweet, it also includes no added sweeteners and makes a great breakfast or snack as well as a dessert.
Frozen Lemonade Slushy: When you have an outdoor cookout to go to where everyone is sipping on frozen beverages, you don’t want to be left out. With just two lemons, some allulose, and a little bit of ice, you can have a sweet and sour frozen slushy that leaves your taste buds tingling and cools you down.
3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Dessert Recipes
For many people, peanut butter is a staple item when it comes to dessert. Combining it with chocolate or even just consuming it on its own is a great way to get some protein while catering to your sweet tooth.
Here are a couple of simple recipes to help:
Keto Reese’s Cups: One of the great joys of chocolate is its combination with some creamy peanut butter. Get your cravings under control with these easy-to-make Reese’s cups that require just ten minutes of your time.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Balls: When you’re short on time and ingredients, you can whip up a quick batch of these peanut butter balls in just five minutes. Better yet, you can get an impressive forty servings out of this recipe, so you’ll have plenty for desserts or snacks to come.
