This Low Carb Raspberry Crisp recipe is a keto fruit dessert that the whole family will enjoy!
We get a lot of requests for keto fruit dessert recipes from people who are just starting out on a ketogenic lifestyle. A lot of times, people think they have to give up fruit completely to keep their carbs low enough to stay in ketosis, and this is definitely not the case! Like anything else, when you’re eating fruit, it’s important to keep portion size in mind and stick with lower-carb options when possible.
We love finding a way to make keto fruit desserts fit into our macros! On a ketogenic lifestyle, there is no reason to ever feel deprived.
Is Fruit Keto?
A lot of different fruits are low carb and keto-friendly, and easy to fit into your daily macros! Be mindful of portion size, and opt for fruit that is naturally lower in carbs, such as things like berries, coconut, and avocado.
If I Eat Fruit on a Keto Diet Will I Stay in Ketosis?
There is no one way to answer this question because everyone’s body is different. Calculate your macros and follow them when you’re incorporating fruit into your meal plan. Also, there are different ways to tell if you’re in ketosis that Lara describes in detail in this post.
What Fruits Can You Eat on a Keto Diet?
There are a variety of different fruits that can be integrated into a ketogenic meal plan. Here are a few of our favorites that we find ourselves eating most often:
- Avocado (one of the most versatile fruits we know, we love making avocado into guacamole, chocolate pudding, or a refreshing salad)
- Coconut (coconut oil, flour, and shredded, we love it all)
- Olives (olive oil for cooking with or dressing salads, and whole olives for snacking on)
- Lemon (squeezed in water or used to dress salad)
- Berries (especially blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
