I love desserts. Like a lot. I really think meals are just a way for us to not feel guilty about having dessert. In fact, my mom always thought it was OK to eat dessert first, just in case you were too full to eat it after dinner. I can get on board with thinking like that. Keto desserts are just like the real thing, except the bad-for-you ingredients are replaced with good-for-you stuff. And luckily, there are a ton of awesome keto dessert recipes to choose from.

Some things you should have on hand when you’re crafting the perfect keto dessert recipe:
Erythritol Natural Sugar Substitute – this is a low-cal, low-carb non-GMO sugar substitute made from corn. It’s a 1/1 ratio (meaning 1 cup of erythritol for every cup of sugar) and it tastes great. No funky aftertaste like you might find with other sugar substitutes.
Xanthan Gum – Xanthan gum is a low-carb gluten substitute used to thicken or stabilize gluten-free flours or other ingredients. Add xanthan gum to sauces, soups, gravies or even dough.
Cacao Powder – Try a low-carb, high-fat organic cacao powder when you’re trying to get your chocolate in. It’s great in smoothies, bulletproof coffee, fat bombs, and desserts.
Almond Flour – This is a keto must-have ingredient. Use almond flour in place of all-purpose or wheat flours in all of your keto recipes.
Coconut Flour – Coconut flour can be combined with almond or other low-carb, gluten-free flours in your keto recipes for additional flavor or texture.
