For a lot of us, the hardest part of any diet is having to skip dessert. The craving for a rich dessert after a meal is too hard to resist, but with these low carb desserts which are keto-friendly, you don’t have to punish your taste buds. The keto diet allows your body to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates.

Keto Diet: Dos & Don’ts

While following this diet plan, you have to avoid the items of food that contain high amounts of sugar, such as cookies, cakes, fruit juices, carbonated drinks, as well as breakfast cereals. However, it’s not all bad. You can replace the sugar in these foods with stevia, replace flour with a healthier alternative like almond flour and if you’re really craving a rush of sweetness, you can indulge yourself in berries such as blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries.

Nutrition Facts (Per Serving): Calories: 132 | Carbs: 7.2g | Protein: 2g | Fat: 7g | Sugar: 3g | Fibre: 1g

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes 

Servings: 10

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 cups full-fat milk or coconut milk
  • ¼ cup roasted coconut powder optional
  • 1-2 tablespoon swerve (or any sugar-free sweetener)
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder
  • 2 tablespoon ghee or coconut oil
  • Almonds (badam) and saffron (kesar) to garnish

Method:

  1. Keto sweets are very easy to make once you get the hang of it. Start by roasting the flour on a low flame. Lightly roast the flour till the almond flour is nice and toasty. You will get a nutty fragrance from the flour once it’s roasted.
  2. Now add milk and give a good stir. From this point, you will have to cook the halwa under low heat and constantly stir it at regular intervals.
  3. Add the elaichi powder and toasted coconut powder or coconut sugar (regular version). Add the condensed milk at this point and stir well. For the keto version, skip this step.
  4. Keep stirring the halwa under low flame till it becomes a thick, paste-like consistency.
  5. Now add sugar or sugar-free sweetener, and mix well. The sugar will melt and give a lovely caramel colour to the halwa. This keto version will also get a light brown colour because of the roasted coconut powder.
  6. Once the halwa starts to leave the pan from the sides, add ghee and cook it for some more time. The halwa is ready to serve. Always serve the almond halwa warm and garnished with badam and kesar
