1. Keto Chocolate Silk Pie
If you are craving a chocolate dessert for your Valentine’s Day dessert but you are following a low carb diet then this keto chocolate silk pie will not disappoint.

3. Low Carb Cheesecake
Everyone loves cheesecakes and it’s one of the most popular desserts often served on Valentine’s Day. The great thing about going low carb like keto is that cheesecake is one of those desserts that you can indulge in guilt-free.
It’s high fat, moderate protein, and absolutely low in carbs, especially if you’ll follow this cheesecake recipe from My Baking Addiction. This sugar-free cheesecake is so easy to prepare and tastes exactly like the real thing!
4. Keto Red Velvet Cupcakes
When red velvet became a trend in the last few years, everyone started making desserts out of it, from cakes, pancakes, ice cream, brownies, and cupcakes! If you’d like to have some red velvet cupcakes for your Valentine’s Day celebration while staying on track with your keto diet, these keto red velvet cupcakes from Olivia over at Zenberry Keto is a great recipe to try.
She’s experimented with the recipe until she got it exactly right so is probably one of the best keto red velvet cupcake recipe out there. She refused to put a ton of ingredients in it that aren’t necessary for a good cupcake recipe. Just make sure you get natural red coloring.
It’s made with cream cheese icing that will definitely help you to stay within ketosis, thanks to its good fat content.
5. Low Carb Carrot Cake
The carrot cake is undeniably a popular recipe when it comes to desserts. However, the classic carrot cake recipe that we’re familiar with is often loaded with carbs. Thankfully, this low carb carrot cake recipe from Libby at Ditch the Carbs has no added sugar and is grain-free.
It’s topped with a generous amount of cream cheese frosting, making it even more delicious. You can bake this as a two-layer cake with the cream cheese filling in the middle or make it into cupcakes with cream cheese frosting!

The recipe is made specifically for keto dieters, allowing you to stay on track with your low carb diet while indulging your sweet tooth.
7. Chocolatey Strawberry Pops
These aren’t your usual dessert offering but I think they are certainly impressive. Great to have after a filling meal! Make your Valentine’s Day celebration more creative and fun by serving these chocolatey strawberry pops from Elviira, a recipe developer over at Low Carb So Simple. She healed herself from a number of health problems with a keto diet.
The strawberries (organic ones are best) are dipped in melted dark chocolate and decorated with heart-shaped sugar-free marzipan. Of course, you can choose to decorate them in any way you want! Just make sure you stick with sugar-free ingredients!
8. Keto Chocolates with Macadamia and Sea Salt
What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with these heart-shaped chocolates? These keto chocolates with macadamia and sea salt from Tasha Metcalf at Ketogasm are filled with macadamia nuts and topped with sea salt! Technically they are what the keto crowd call fat bombs.
They are made from cocoa powder, coconut oil, and granulated stevia, the kind of ingredients that will help you stay in ketosis. Plus, the salty and sweet combination of the dark chocolate and salt is sure to spice up your Valentine’s Day celebration!
9. Keto Coconut Raspberry Cupcakes

It’s a dessert that both the adults and kids will absolutely love so great if you are having a Valentine’s Day party for kids. The cupcakes are made with coconut flour, which is one of the best low carb flour alternatives.

10. Ultimate Keto Chocolate Ice Cream
This Valentine’s Day, treat your loved ones with this ultimate keto chocolate ice cream from Martina Slajerova, creator of KetoDietApp. She started to follow a ketogenic lifestyle when she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid.
It’s super rich and creamy and tastes exactly like the chocolate ice cream everyone is familiar with. But the best thing about this chocolate ice cream is that it’s made with gelatin and MCT oil, which is perfect for your low carb diet. Don’t worry if you don’t have the MCT oil, you can replace it with 2 – 4 tablespoons of vodka. It tastes just as great and will not kick you out of ketosis.
11. Best Low Carb Chocolate Cake
No apologies for including yet another chocolate recipe. Well, Valentine’s Day is a day to treat yourself or your loved one isn’t it?
This low carb chocolate cake from Lisa MarcAurele, the owner of Low Carb Yum, is a great recipe to try. What’s good and unusual about this chocolate cake is that it has some zucchinis in it, yet no one will ever notice that you’re adding vegetables to the cake since they are shredded finely!
In fact, shredded zucchinis are the secret to making low carb cakes moist and healthy. This cake freezes well so if you cannot finish it at once, you can simply store it in the freezer for another time.
12. Strawberry Lemonade Mojitos
Well, not a dessert but before capping off the night this Valentine’s Day, why not spoil your loved one with a low carb cocktail? This strawberry lemonade mojitos recipe is from Mellissa Sevigny who catalogs her low carb and keto recipes over at I Breathe I’m Hungry.
This pink cocktail drink is absolutely perfect for Valentine’s Day. It’s garnished with beautiful red strawberries (organic preferably so you don’t get the pesticides) and some mint leaves. The drink is truly refreshing, something that your loved one will enjoy even if he or she is not into a low carb diet.
Well I hope that you’ll find something suitable to top off your Valentine’s Day meal among my roundup of impressive desserts which are ideal for any other celebration.
