Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for food and nourishment, your loved ones, and the good times. This year, take a moment to be grateful for the results or symptom relief you’re experiencing as you improve your lifestyle and wellness by following a ketogenic diet. If you’re just getting started on keto, give thanks in advance for the success you’ll experience in the future if you stick to it.

Of course, on Thanksgiving, you could fall off the wagon and devour all the sugary desserts. Or you could stay in ketosis and still enjoy some mouthwatering keto Thanksgiving desserts. Check out the following low-carb delights to spruce up your dinner table and satisfy your palate this holiday.

My Oh My, Thanksgiving Pies!

Just the word Thanksgiving probably makes you envision perfectly cooked turkey slices high up on a mound of veggies, drizzled with keto gravy, of course. The word Thanksgiving probably also invokes images of a pie for dessert, maybe something traditionally made in the fall, like apple, pumpkin, or pecan.

Mousse and Puree

A creamy mousse makes a light and easy keto Thanksgiving dessert. Enjoy a keto chocolate mousse or a peanut butter mousse. ‘Tis the pumpkin season, so why not try a pumpkin mousse? It’s simple to make and brings the fall flavors of pumpkin pie without the carby crust.

Chocolate-covered strawberries aren’t just for luxurious hotels, romantic dates, and fine-dining restaurants. Vibrant red strawberries coated in sweet chocolate are a glamorous addition to your Thanksgiving dinner table.

Bacon isn’t just for breakfast; impress your friends and family with chocolate-covered bacon for dessert. A keto chocolate coating transforms simpler foods like strawberries and bacon into a satisfying dessert. Some desserts go perfectly with the changing colors of the fall leaves, such as these chocolatey keto gingerbread bites

Fudge and Fat Bombs
