Keto Frozen Yogurt Fruit Cups

What is Needed to Make Keto Frozen Yogurt Fruit Cups?
There’s nothing quite like a simple recipe that takes little prep time and requires few supplies! This is one of those recipes! In addition to 5 simple ingredients, you need the following supplies to create this delicious keto friendly yogurt:
How to Make Keto Frozen Yogurt
Line a muffin tin with 6 cupcake liners.
In a medium bowl, add the yogurt, sweetener, and vanilla. Add mixture to cupcake liners, evenly.
Press the fresh fruit into the top of each filled cup.
Freeze the cups until the yogurt is firm. Serve cold.
Is Yogurt Keto Friendly?
Whether or not yogurt is keto friendly depends on the type of yogurt you buy. Traditional yogurt contains lactose which is a natural sugar that adds up quickly and makes it difficult to fit into a keto diet. This isn’t even including the added sugars that companies include for flavoring. A small yogurt cup can have up to 20 grams of carbs!
However, some yogurts, such as plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt can easily fit into a keto diet because it is higher in protein and fat, while being considerably lower in carbs.
Of course, in this recipe, we have included a low carb, keto friendly version of Greek yogurt, but it is imperative to double-check the label before purchasing. All Greek yogurt is not created equal.
How Many Carbs Are In This Keto Frozen Yogurt?
While most yogurt and frozen yogurt treats are not keto friendly, these are! These frozen yogurt fruit cups have just 2 net carbs per serving.
This recipe makes 6 servings.
Now, if this is your higher carb day (which you all know I am a fan of cyclical keto and raising the carb count once a week), I suggest trying this delicious protein frozen yogurt. Most of the carbs are coming from the fruit and this is a perfect way to raise those carbs for your cyclical day and get a ton of protein and nutrients too!
How Long Does it Take to Make this Keto Friendly Yogurt?
This awesome keto frozen yogurt recipe takes just 10 minutes of prep time! You will have to wait a bit until it is firmly frozen to enjoy it, but the actual prep part takes just minutes!
How To Store Keto Friendly Yogurt
If you plan to have leftovers, do not worry! The extra frozen yogurt fruit cups won’t go to waste because you can store these in the freezer for up to 2 months. Just be sure to keep the cups in the cupcake liners and store them in an airtight container in the freezer until you are ready to enjoy.
When to Enjoy These Keto Frozen Yogurt Cups
You can enjoy these delicious treats anytime you want, but since it’s starting to warm up outside, now is a great time to make them! I love having delicious, guilt free frozen treats on hand to cool me down when the weather outside starts creeping up.
Guilt free frozen treats are key for those of us who may have enjoyed too many sugar filled frozen treats in our pre-keto days. These keto frozen yogurt cups are a healthy, delicious alternative to all of the unhealthy options out there!
Tips for Enjoying Keto Friendly Yogurt Cups
Freeze for the Correct Amount of Time
Freezing the cups for 2 to 3 hours is perfect for the perfect amount of firmness. Any longer and it may be too hard to enjoy.
Let Them Sit at Room Temperature for 5 to 10 Minutes Before Enjoying
Allowing these frozen yogurt cups to thaw out for 5 to 10 minutes allows them to soften slightly, making them easier to enjoy.
Peel the Cupcake Liners Away While Still Frozen
Be sure to peel the cupcake liners away from the fruit cups before enjoying as this creates much less mess than if you do it once they are completely thawed.
Are There Alternative Toppings for These Keto Frozen Yogurt Cups?
You can make these keto frozen yogurt cups what you want by using any combination of fruits and nuts that you like. To keep it keto friendly, be sure to choose low-carb options. You can also adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more or less sweetener.
