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.

Thanks, humidity.

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!

A delicious, lower carb alternative to your favorite chocolate covered strawberries.

Ingredients

2 cups (1 dozen whole strawberries) (~22g carbs)

1/2 cup Lily’s milk chocolate (2 net carbs)

  1. 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.
