Low-carb Chocolate Covered Strawberry Recipe [ Keto Dessert Recipes ]

There are specific days of the year that make it tough to stick to a ketogenic diet. For me, Valentine’s Day is one of them. My wife and I share a love for celebration and a major sweet tooth, and chocolate is our ultimate kryptonite. For me, one of the first images that come to mind when I think “Valentine’s” is that delectable, juicy, chocolate-dipped strawberry — which is why I wanted to create an easy low-carb chocolate covered strawberry recipe that will melt your socks off (and your date’s).

Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t judge you for deciding to break your diet for Valentine’s Day. However, I am here to say that you can have some of your favorite treats without leaving your state of ketosis. Each low-carb chocolate covered strawberry contains just 1-3 net carbs. So you probably shouldn’t have a whole carton of them, but you can certainly enjoy one or two while sticking to a keto diet!

One of my goals for keto dessert recipes is to help people navigate the holidays and celebratory days while maintaining a keto lifestyle. Hopefully, this recipe will help to do just that. After all, what says ‘I love you’ more than a keto-friendly, low-carb, chocolate covered strawberry!?

Ingredients

  1. One 3oz Lily’s milk chocolate bar
  2. One 4oz Lily’s dark chocolate baking bar
  3. 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  4. One package of strawberries
  5. 1/3 cup chopped nuts of your choice (optional)
  6. 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Directions

  1. Chop both chocolate bars into small pieces for melting.
  2. Place the chopped chocolate and coconut oil in a heatproof bowl.
  3. Using a saucepan bring about 1 inch of water to a simmer and place your heatproof bowl on the mouth of the saucepan. Make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.
  4. Keeping the temperature low, stir the chocolate and coconut oil with a spatula until melted.
  5. Tilt the bowl sideways so there is enough depth to dip the strawberries.
  6. Dip the strawberries into the chocolate and, if desired, roll them in chopped nuts or coconut flakes.
  7. Place your berries on a baking sheet and let cool for a few minutes. Then place them in a container and store in the fridge until you’re ready for them!
