7 Delicious Fruits You Can Eat On Keto Diet

- ADVERTISEMENT -

You try the keto diet for weight loss, but all that butter, cheese, and meat can get heavy at times. And so lightening up your meals with some fruit seems like a smart move, doesn’t it?

Not so fast! With this high fat eating plan, carbohydrates should not exceed 5% of your calorie intake to stay in ketosis (which is a state where your body burns fat for energy rather than carbohydrates). And fruits are quite high in carbohydrates. But following a low-carb, high-fat diet like the ketogenic diet doesn’t mean you have to give up all fruits and vegetables.

Here are some fruits that can be eaten in moderation without breaking your ketosis.

1. Avocados

Most people “think” avocados and tomatoes are vegetables… but technically they are both fruits. And since they’re fruits, and so delicious… we’ve included one of them in our low-carb fruit list.

Avocado contains 8.5 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams … which is a little high. But the good news is, they have 6.7 grams of dietary fiber (oh yeah), which reduces the amount of net carbs to 1.8g!

If you’re on a low-carb ketogenic diet … there really are few foods that can compare to avocado. They taste great and are filled with good fats.

There are endless ways to prepare and eat avocados. We can eat them on our salads, alone for lunch, on a hamburger without bread, or in guacamole. Honestly, can’t we find better food?

2. Blackberries

It might surprise you, but blackberries are one of the lowest-carb fruits (or berries). These little berries contain a total of 9.61 grams of carbohydrate per 100 grams… which is a bit high.

Luckily, they also contain a lot of dietary fiber: 5.3 grams! This brings the total net carbs to 4.31 grams, which is still reasonable.

In season, add a few blackberries (if possible) to your favorite salads or as a summer snack.

3. Raspberries

Raspberries are also part of the berry family which doesn’t have a lot of carbohydrates. They contain 11.94 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams… Ouch!

The nice surprise is that they contain 6.5 grams of dietary fiber, which gives us total net carbs of 5.44 grams!

Raspberries are perfect as a snack, on a salad, in a smoothie, or on a keto pancake… there is plenty to choose from! They are also great because they can easily be frozen in season and used later when they are no longer readily available.

4. Strawberries

There aren’t many more enjoyable things in life than fresh strawberries on a hot summer day!

The great news is that you can continue to eat these delicious berries on a low-carb diet like the keto diet.

These bright red little berries contain 7.68 grams of carbohydrate per 100 grams, including 2.0 grams of dietary fiber, bringing the net total carbohydrate to 5.68 grams.

Like blackberries and raspberries, strawberries are excellent on salads, as a dessert, in smoothies, as a snack …

5. Olives

Wait, what? Are olives fruit? Well yes, these are fruits that can also be enjoyed on a keto diet.

10 small olives contain only 1.5 grams of carbohydrate.

The fat content is 3 grams per 10 olives and on top of that, it is an excellent source of sodium which is very important when following a low carbohydrate diet.

Rich in antioxidants (polyphenols), these stars of the Mediterranean diet are excellent for maintaining the body in good health. So do not deprive yourself of it as an aperitif!

6. Lemons

This alkaline fruit is perfectly compatible with a keto diet. Lemons are low in carbohydrates and are a great source of vitamin C, potassium, and calcium.

On top of that, they will give your taste buds a little treat and can do wonders for your weight loss goals. Indeed, citric acid has detoxifying and diuretic effects recognized for a long time.

With less than half a gram of sugar per lemon wedge, don’t hesitate to add more to your infusions or your water. You can also add lemon juice to your sauces or some zest for your roasted meats or fish.

7. Coconut

The coconut is one of the most generous sources of good fats and is also very low in carbohydrates.

50g of grated coconut contains only 3.7g of carbohydrates. Therefore, they can be included in your keto diet in moderation.

And of course, you can also use it (it is recommended!) Of coconut oil, coconut vinegar, and coconut flour for pastries your keto.
