I’m a lazy keto dieter.
There, I said it!
Well, to tell you the truth I haven’t seen the results I’d like to see from this diet. (Maybe that’s why it’s called lazy?) Not yet, anyway. But I’m not giving up.
I do, however, like eating low sugar, low carb desserts. I just feel better when I consume fewer carbs in my diet. That’s why I like making and eating Keto diet desserts like this Keto Lemon Berry Dessert and thisKeto Strawberry Jello Dessert. And these Fat Bombs are the bomb when it comes to a low carb high fat snack. They’re so delicious and if this sounds yummy to you then help yourself to these recipes.

They are committed to getting the right information about the Keto diet to you with lots of encouragement and recipes to keep you motivated and not bored in your weight loss quest.
Back to the Keto Lemon Berry Dessert
So here are the steps and ingredients to making our dessert. We start with creaming some cream cheese then whipping some heavy whipping cream. Next, we mix them together and add lemon extract, grated lemon zest, and vanilla for lots of fresh flavors.
I prefer using vanilla bean paste instead of the extract. It has a punch of sweetness along with the rich vanilla flavor. The seeds add to the dessert’s looks, too.
Stevia is my favorite sweetener. I use it because it’s all natural, but you can use the one you prefer best.
Now, it’s time to layer the creamy filling with the berries. You can do this however you like. Either in a bowl or individual dessert cups.Print

Presenting Keto Lemon Berry Dessert
I doubled the recipe in order to fill a large trifle dish. With the leftovers, I filled small dessert cups then topped it with berries and garnished them with fresh mint leaves.
Isn’t she lovely? This dessert also keeps well for several days in the refrigerator. I think the longer it sits the better it tastes. Well, happy eating and let me know how this website helps you in any way. I love hearing from you!
