27 Low-Carb Keto Desserts for Christmas

Holiday season is dessert season! If you’re ketogenic and you don’t want to ruin your ketosis, never fear! Here are some delicious low carb keto desserts for the Christmas season!

Hello friends! How’s life?

Recently I’ve been getting really serious about my ketogenic lifestyle. It started out small a couple of months ago, like I was just dipping my toes in a little bit. Testing the waters you might say. A keto meal here, a keto meal there, but nothing serious.

But ever since the beginning of November, I’ve been really stepping it up. I realize how beneficial it is. November 10th I was fully in ketosis and have been in it ever since!

But it’s Thanksgiving and Christmas season. It’s difficult to be social without being barricaded by dessert after dessert. Dessert’s my weakness (especially brownies OMG).

So I knew I needed to do something if I expected to protect my ketosis state. I knew I wouldn’t last long with the cheesecake on our kitchen counter beckoning my name every time I did the dishes.

Luckily, I’ve found solutions! There are actually a ton of absolutely mouth-watering keto desserts that you can try. I even let my hubby try it without telling him it was keto and he loved it! It’ll be our little secret.

If you’re also wanting to indulge in some desserts but stay in ketosis, enjoy these fantastically festive christmas low carb keto desserts!
