Keto valentine's day sweet cupcake treats

If you enjoy celebrating the Valentine’s Day holiday, you might be dreading trying to stay keto during this season of love. Going out to eat can be fun, but it’s cheaper and–if you’re trying to stay in ketosis–easier to satisfy your sweet tooth at home (let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of restaurants with very low-carb desserts on the menu). So what are some delectable keto-friendly Valentine’s Day treats that you can indulge in on this holiday?

Here are 33 delicious keto-friendly Valentine’s Day sweet treats–including cakes, tarts, cookies, truffles, fat bombs, parfaits, custards and more–that you and your sweetheart can nosh on without sacrificing your diet to do so.

Keto-Friendly Valentine’s Day Treats 

No Valentine’s Day meal is complete without something sweet. Steer clear of those heart-shaped boxes of chocolate that line the aisles of every supermarket. Instead, go with something made with love and low carbs to keep you and your honey in ketosis. 

While all of these recipes, when eaten alone, should keep you in ketosis, some are higher in carbs than others. Remember to take your whole day’s macros into account when calculating what you can safely consume.

Valentine’s Day Treat Recipes That Take Less than 10 Minutes to Make 

First up, you might want to stick with the traditional chocolate flavor associated with most treats on the holiday of love. Our 5-ingredient keto chocolate mousse recipe takes just ten minutes to put together, but it needs to chill for an hour so consider making it the night before. Top with berries or mint for extra flavor. Remember that these toppings may add more than the standard 2.5g net carbs.

Valentine’s Day Treat Recipes That Take 30 Minutes or Less 

A simple keto chocolate pudding is a great indulgence, only has 6g net carbs, and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. You won’t want to skip dessert when this comes out of the refrigerator.

Fat Bomb Recipes

One of the best options for keto-friendly Valentine’s Day treats are fat bombs, which tend to be very low in carbs and make great desserts or snacks. For example, this dark chocolate almond fat bomb recipe certainly doesn’t disappoint. At just 2 grams net carbs per serving, you can enjoy a tasty and chocolatey dessert with a decent protein and fat content. The only catch is that they take a little bit longer to prepare than the previous recipes on this list, coming in at roughly 45 minutes.

If you want to load up on good fat content while indulging your sweet tooth, here are a few other fat bomb recipes that you may want to make for you and your sweetheart: 

Make-Ahead Recipes  

When chocolate isn’t an option, try these keto fried cheesecake bites. They take up a little more prep time, but they are very low in overall net carbs (1.1g) so you don’t have to be scared about having more than one. They will need to be placed in the freezer for an hour before baking, so plan accordingly. Serve with fresh strawberries or melted keto-friendly chocolate dipping sauce.

Sometimes, the simplest recipes and ideas are the best ones!
