Looking for low-calorie keto snacks to stay in ketosis and within your limits? These 17 tasty options are easy to make with simple ingredients.
Snacks can curb between-meal hunger and make keto all the more enjoyable. But frequent snacking can have its downsides, too. For instance, you could easily go overboard with the calories and even carbs with the wrong kind of snacks. That’s why going for low-calorie keto snacks is your best bet.
The term “low-calorie” usually means 40 calories less per serving. But to make things easier for you, let’s just say that a snack of up to 150 calories is good enough to fall under this category. There are plenty of keto recipes that provide a tiny amount of calories per serving, so you won’t see a shortage of low-calorie options in the snack department on keto.
With that said, here are 17 of the best low-calorie keto snacks to try. You’ll find everything from sweet and creamy to salty and crunchy. Enjoy!
