Keto Sugar Free & Low Calorie Frozen Yoghurt Delight. ZERO carbs (0.8 gram net, to be precise).
1 minute is all it takes. Really! 1 minute! And it will be ready for the freezer.
This super lush dessert, aka sweet bite, aka fat bomb (kind of…) is simply pefect to curb a sweet tooth any time of the day. And because it is so low in calories, you can even have two!
So how can low calorie be keto, given that ketosis entails eating high fat, medium protein and very low carb foods? Simple. It’s all about ratios and portions. The macronutrients for Keto Sugar Free & Low Calorie Frozen Yoghurt Delight are just spot on for keto.
Keto or not, calories matter. Anyone who disagrees is tragically ignorant in basic human metabolic biology.
There is no denying that energy uptake is much more efficient on a ketogenic diet. And there is no denying that, after switching from high carb to low carb, weight loss is effortless despite calorific meals. But as time goes on, the body becomes adapted and a fine balance needs to be found between energy in (calories) and energy out.
As so many people do not pay attention to this aspect, their weight loss stalls. Or worse, they start piling the weight back on. Just look at Jimmy Moore, the low-carb guru who is now back to obese levels.
Please be clear that I am not a Jimmy Moore hater. On the contrary, he is the man behind the book that set me off on the keto path, and for that I’ll forever be grateful to him. I just do not concur with his near-zero carbs and unlimited fat views. Instead, I believe that a healthy keto diet involves eating clean, whole foods, whilst limiting carbs only to the degree that is necessary in order to achieve a continuous state of ketosis, and incorporating a sufficient quantity of healthy fats to provide an adequate ketogenic ratio. As no two people are the same, the keto diet, like any other diet, must be adapted and personalised to the individual, in order to reap the benefits and achieve the desired results, without health deterioration.
The physiology is clear and simple. You cannot eat unlimited calories forever. Therefore, calorie awareness, as I like to call it, sooner or later becomes a must. I am not saying you should start counting calories all the time. Just keep an eye on the PORTIONS you eat and do a CALORIE CHECK every now and then. This will tell you how much energy you’re ingesting, and you’ll be able to judge for yourself if there is an excess, taking into consideration your activity levels.
So what do you do, if like myself, you cannot live without sweet treats? Simple. Make tasty yet low calorie options.
My Keto Sugar Free & Low Calorie Frozen Yoghurt Delight hits the spot, with only 51 calories but the high fat ratio you come to expect from a keto dessert.
The beauty of this is that it’s highly customisable. If you don’t have Greek yoghurt, you can just strain normal yoghurt to remove the whey and turn it into Greek-style yoghurt – see my tutorial HERE.
You can swap the raspberries for blackberries, blueberries, mulberries, gooseberries, strawberries, or whatever you like that fits your macros.
You can also plop the whole Keto Sugar Free & Low Calorie Frozen Yoghurt Delight in a single container, instead of lolly moulds, and freeze just long enough to obtain a real frozen yoghurt texture.

- put everything into a mixing bowl and stir with a fork, mashing the berries until juice is released and you have a lovely pink mixture.
- transfer to 4 individual serving moulds or fill mini ice cream moulds (THESE are the ones I used) and freeze.
You can use other fresh berries you prefer, such as blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries, strawberries or mulberries. But do remember to do your own macro re-calculations. You can even use other fruit, providing it fits your macros.
Either freeze for just long enough to give you a semi-frozen consistency, or leave to harden like creamy lollies.
Metric kitchen scales are an inexpensive yet invaluable gadget to ensure accurate measurement of ingredients. Store them upright in a cupboard or over your worktop and they'll only take up a tiny bit of space. Click HERE for the ones I use. For U.S. option click HERE.
