The spring has finally settled (well, more or less; We still get some pretty low temperatures here!), and I love setting new goals in springtime! New Year’s resolutions are nothing compared to the motivation boost I get when I see all the trees growing the bright green colored leaves and everything in bloom. I love the mornings in spring. They make me anticipate the sunny days that are going to get longer and longer for the next couple of months.
The various goals I set in the springtime (and stick to them), include: Exercise outdoors whenever possible; Start getting up even earlier each morning; Start saving money for a well-deserved vacation; Carry out an egg fast; Write a new keto recipe as My Sweet Keto has been around for the fourth spring now!
With springtime, I also tend to bake a little less and start preparing more refreshing desserts. Even the baked goods are created in such a manner they are still delicious when cooled in the fridge. Plus, I get to use berries a lot when the season kicks in. Here, I’ve selected 5 refreshing keto desserts that can fuel your springtime activities, satisfy your sweet-tooth and even accompany you through an egg fast.
We cannot ignore berries in late spring. No way. Don’t know about you, but for me, picking home-grown and wild strawberries has been a part of every spring and summer since ever. Luckily for us, they are keto-friendly fruits so we can have some (or a lot sometimes)!

A late spring delish which I hardly wait to bake again. At the first sight, it might seem like a lot of work, but oh, if you’ve got those fresh berries, sacrificing them for this cheesepie is so, sooo worth it! Stop worrying about the strict carb limit for a day, and delight your day with this berry queen.

This cream comes from heaven and takes you to heaven. And you get to stay alive! It is very high in dairy and egg yolk fats but comes as a pleasantly refreshing treat when served straight out of the fridge.

I love this one. It’s a pie created for all the sweet tooths undergoing an egg fast. Made mainly of eggs, some cream cheese, erythritol, and vanilla extract, you don’t have to worry about not following your egg fast plan. And it’s fun to make!
