15 Tasty Keto Dessert Recipes To Try Today

The keto diet has become increasingly popular in recent years, with the main focus of the diet in general being to send the body into a state of “ketosis” which is achieved via a strict diet that is low in carbohydrates.

Ketosis refers to a process wherein the body will burn fat and use it as the main energy source rather than carbohydrates.

This stems from the absence of glucose from within carbohydrates, which is achieved by the low-carb intake of the keto diet.

Without carbohydrates, the liver will begin to break down fat instead as a method of producing energy.

This is a diet that has seen great results, but cutting out carbs can be difficult, especially when it comes to some of those guilty pleasure treats.

Have no fear, though, as we are going to be looking at some particularly tasty desserts you can make and indulge in that won’t have you cheating on your keto diet! Let’s take a look.
