Think you’ll miss out on Christmas treats when you’re following a low carb or keto diet? Or perhaps you’ve decided that you’ll give up on the diet when the holiday comes. Well, you’d better think again.

Below are three of the healthiest and most delicious low carb Christmas treats that you and your kids will surely love. These treats demonstrated by Chloe Ting include a blend of stevia and erythritol which has zero calories and will not impact your blood sugar level.

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol and can cause a digestive upset if you have a very sensitive gut. You should probably avoid it if you follow the FODMAP diet although in small amounts it can often be tolerated.
