Of all the berries, strawberries have got to be one of the best — they're sweet, juicy, a little tart and so tasty when in-season! And if you’re on a low-carb or keto diet, they can make a dessert, salad, breakfast or snack taste even better and sweeter.
Here are some of favorite low-carb and keto strawberry recipes to celebrate summer. Our most popular recipes include our simple strawberry tart, strawberry salad with poppy seed dressing, and our strawberry cheesecake bars. Be sure to enjoy ripe summer strawberries while you can!
This simple strawberry mascarpone tart is one my husband’s favorite low-carb and keto desserts. It's because it has a crunchy pecan crust, a sweet and creamy mascarpone filling, and is topped with fresh strawberries. It's a delicious low-carb and keto summer dessert (or anytime of year for that matter) to make when when strawberries are in season. Each slice is only 1.8 net carbs. Click here for the recipe.
We were inspired to make this low-carb peanut butter and roasted strawberry Greek yogurt after NYT Cooking did a post on peanut butter and jelly yogurt. If you haven't tried it, you should! In this recipe, we sweeten the unsweetened peanut butter and roast the strawberries with Swerve sweetener. We love the added sweetness and even like to add a few pinches of keto granola on the top to make it crunchy. Click here for the recipe.
Sweet, ripe strawberries take center stage in this salad, but the creamy, sweet yet tangy poppy seed dressing is absolutely delicious! This quick and easy weeknight salad can be made in about 15 minutes. It goes great with grill dishes, is fun for summer gatherings, and deliciously satisfying when you're craving something a little sweet. Each serving is just 3 net carbs. Click here for the recipe.
These low-carb and keto strawberry cheesecake bars are the best of two worlds — the no-bake cheesecake top is wonderfully smooth and creamy with fresh strawberry slices, while the bottom is a crunchy, baked pecan crust that is almost as delicious as the cheesecake itself.

This creamy, fruity and low-carb and keto strawberry lassi is a simple and quick treat to make. A lassi is a traditional, yogurt-based drink from India that is deliciously refreshing and healthy.

Strawberry crisp is one of the best summer desserts! In this low-carb and keto crisp, the strawberries are lightly sweetened and then topped with a crumble made from butter, cinnamon, pecans and almond flour. It bakes in the oven until the strawberries are bubbling and the crumble is golden brown. The prep time is less than 15 minutes and each serving is 5 net carbs. Click here for the recipe.
Topping breakfast chaffles with sweetened yogurt and strawberries is a game changer for us. Not only for the yummy taste, but for the nutritional aspects as well. The sweetened Greek yogurt serves as an excellent source of calcium, protein and probiotics. Not only that, the yogurt is more substantial and filling than simply adding syrup. And when you add fresh strawberries — that's just icing on the cake! Click here for the recipe.
