20 Best Carnivore Diet Desserts Recipes
Highlights
  • The Carnivore Diet only focuses on animal-based, high-fat, and low-carb foods to push the body into a ketosis state to burn fat instead of carbohydrates for energy.
  • In the Carnivore Diet, plant-based, sugary, and high-carb ingredients are now allowed but you can use many alternatives in your main meals and desserts.
  • Many believe that the Carnivore Diet is very restrictive and you don’t have many options as a dessert, but there are many Carnivore desserts you can easily prepare and enjoy without negatively affecting your diet results.

What Is the Carnivore Diet?

The Carnivore Diet is a meat-based way of eating that eliminates all plant-based foods and allows only animal-based products. It means the diet consists solely of meat, fish, eggs, and some dairy products like cheese and butter.

On the Carnivore Diet, you cannot have any fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, or other plant-derived foods or ingredients.

This approach is based on the belief that animal sources provide optimal nutrition for the human body. While many believe the Carnivore Diet lacks variety, you can make various dishes using these Carnivore Diet recipes. You can even make a variety of yummy Carnivore Diet desserts.

What Desserts Can I Have on a Carnivore Diet?

On a Carnivore Diet, plant-based sweeteners and some common baking ingredients like almond flour are limited or prohibited, still, you have many alternatives to use for having many desserts on your diet.

In addition to being yummy, Carnivore Diet desserts are nutritious. The main nutrients you'll get from Carnivore desserts are high-quality animal proteins and fats, along with vitamins like A, B12, iron, and minerals like zinc from dairy, eggs, and meat.

Also, if you like sweet and sugary desserts, you can use low-carb sweeteners like stevia. So, starting the Carnivore Diet doesn’t mean you should forget the sweet taste. You just need to choose sweeteners and ingredients more carefully to stay on track with your diet.

Should You Avoid Having Sweets on The Carnivore Diet?

Yes, you should generally avoid common sweets on the Carnivore Diet as added sugars and plant-based sweeteners are not allowed on the Carnivore Diet.

Most people following a standard Carnivore Diet avoid all sweeteners, even natural ones like honey because they’re plant-based. The main reason is to eliminate every potential source of plant compounds that could cause inflammation or digestive issues.

However, more flexible variations of Carnivore allow certain no-carb sweeteners in moderation, such as stevia or erythritol. These are plant-derived but do not contain carbohydrates or calories that impact the diet results negatively.

To have desserts on your Carnivore Diet’s meal plan, you can use the following recipes, as they provide all the nutrients you need on your diet and don’t contain any plant-based sweeteners or ingredients.
