Eating carbs or other non-keto-friendly snacks may be tempting when you are on a ketogenic diet. There are many snack options that you can try.
Let’s dive into quick and tasty keto-friendly snacks to satisfy our hunger pangs.
Treat yourself with low-carb snacks.
You’ve probably heard it all at one time or another. This is a great idea, especially for those on the keto diet. Nuts are low in carbs but pack a punch. A trail mix can be made with any combination of nuts, including peanuts, cashews and pecans. It’s keto’s choice. They are delicious and available in various flavors, including sweet or spicy.
A creamy peanut butter smoothie is the ultimate comfort food. This high-protein keto option is great for ice cream cravings or post-gym recovery drinks. And it’s (almost) sugar-free. Blend 1 Cup of unsweetened almond milk, 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter and 3 tablespoons of monk fruit. One cup of crushed ice is also available. One tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder is also available (if you want to indulge in chocolate). This smoothie is low in sugar and will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Although we are certain that the answer is yes, is Caprese salad? This delicious, lettuce-free delight is more like a charcuterie bite. It doesn’t matter how you see it; this dessert is keto-friendly. Layer your favorite mozzarella slices on top of tomato wheels and fresh basil leaves. Sprinkle olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette over the entire dish and season with salt and pepper.
You can skip the baking and grab some pre-made keto cookies to take with you for a sweet treat between meals.
Pork rinds make a great keto snack. These snacks are easy to carry and great for snacking on during Zoom meetings. You can eat them as-is or dip them in sour cream and Guacamole.
