This Is a Low-Carb Keto Dessert That’s Ready in Just 10 Minutes

Add mascarpone to your whipped cream for a next-level pairing with strawberries.

We already know and love strawberries with whipped cream, but try adding mascarpone to the mix for a delicious Italian twist. Classic whipped cream benefits from the creaminess, lightness, and the subtle tangy finish of mascarpone (the tanginess comes from the citric acid used to thicken this dessert-destined cream cheese.) Not to mention, this is a keto-friendly dessert!

Catering to your sweet tooth and figuring out a low-carb dessert you can enjoy while following a keto diet can be a little tricky because you are abstaining from processed foods, high-carb foods, and sugars. Luckily, what keto desserts lack in carbs, they make up for with delicious fats, alternative flours, and alternative sources of sweetness like stevia, erythritol, and fruits like berries. This recipe uses stevia as the sweetening agent and the whipping cream and mascarpone as sources of fat.

Whip this strawberry mascarpone keto dessert in less than 10 minutes (seriously, what could be easier), and serve topped with some grated keto chocolate. You’ll feel like you’re eating the best part of the cake—the toppings!
