Nothing screams Valentine’s Day like chocolate covered strawberries, but for people who are watching their blood sugar or carbs, it’s a dessert that seems out of reach.
Until now! This dessert is keto and low carb friendly. I’m so excited to share it!
A couple of months ago, my package of Lily’s chocolate arrived. But, in true Houston fashion, the weather melted all of them. I was a little distraught because I wanted to make my almond butter chocolate chip cookies, but my plans were ruined.
I’d been stewing for a bit about what I could do with them, and these chocolate covered strawberries popped in mind for Valentine’s day.
The recipe is really simple, and that’s why this blog post is pretty short. I don’t think you need me to tell you step-by-step how to do this.
Buy some strawberries and dip them. That’s it.
If you do need a recipe, there’s one below. But here’s one thing you will need for this recipe: avocado oil.
Normally, when you melt chocolate, you use coconut oil, or olive oil to keep the chocolate shiny, and help it create a shell.
I personally think those two oils have a strong and distinct taste. Avocado oil, however, is very mild in flavor.
And if you didn’t know, avocado and chocolate actually make a pretty stellar combination.
Get the recipe below and be sure to save the pin. I can’t wait for you to try it out!Print

A delicious, lower carb alternative to your favorite chocolate covered strawberries.
2 cups (1 dozen whole strawberries) (~22g carbs)

- Microwave the chocolate and oil in a microwave safe dish for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between heating them each time. Do this until the chocolate becomes smooth.

I love how easy this recipe is! I can’t wait to make these chocolate covered strawberries again on Valentine’s day!
I honestly never would have known these were sugar-free had you not titled them that! They were so delicious and so easy to make my kids devour them in minutes.
This is genius. Tested a few strawberries for Valentine’s Day and they came out perfect!
I hate avocados but love avocado oil due to its neutral flavor. The chocolate was really able to shine with the neutral oil.
I made these chocolate-covered strawberries tonight and it was the easiest, most delicious treat I could ask for! The avocado oil worked perfectly to thin out the chocolate.
So easy to make and so delicious! I made these as a quick treat and they’ll be making an encore for Valentine’s Day.
These strawberries had alot of bold flavor and i think them being sugar free really allowed the natural flavors to shie through!
First of all, if I didn’t make these I would have never believed they were sugar free! They were so delicious and my new go-to recipe for chocolate covered strawberries!
I am allergic to coconut oil and agree that olive oil leaves an aftertaste in desserts. The chocolate came out so beautifully, and I always have avocado oil in the pantry, I will be doing a 2nd Valentine’s Day batch. Thanks for the tip!
I am on a low carb diet and these are perfect! They tasted great! Definitely making them again.
I get so frisky whenever I make chocolate-covered strawberries. I’ve never used Lily’s before this recipe and now I don’t think I’ll use anything else.
I’m always looking for guilt free desserts! I’m so glad that I came across this recipe because it was so easy and so indulgent without all of the sugar!
