All the flavor of a typical strawberry pretzel salad, but without the carbohydrates! This Keto Strawberry Pretzel salad on a keto diet is fantastic and sweet.
WHAT IS A STRAWBERRY PRETZEL SALAD ON THE KETO?
A strawberry pretzel salad is a sweet meal that is quite popular throughout the summer at picnics and cookouts.
A sweet, whipped cream cheese filling, strawberry jello, and fruit slices are placed on top of the “salad,” which also has a pretzel and butter crust (which, of course, is not for this recipe).
The original is extremely high in sugar and carbohydrates, as you could have predicted. However, this recipe employs fantastic keto-friendly ingredients to create a dish that is just as wonderful!
CONTROVERSIAL SWEETENER USE
There are some dubious sweeteners utilized, as you may have noted in the ingredient list above.
Aspartame is not only not the best sweetener to use because it has 85 net carbs per 100g, despite the fact that we aren’t against it (and weirdly, neither is the EU). Check read this in-depth article about artificial sweeteners from Ruled. me.
Acesulfame potassium, which is the second sweetener utilized, is really not listed among the “recognized” artificial sweeteners.
A DIFFERENT SWEETENER MAY I USE?
Without a doubt, you can.
You are aware that we enjoy using Lakanto sweeteners in our recipes. Unlike the majority of name-brand sweeteners, they are straightforward, natural, and do not contain a tonne of other additives.
We like to keep reminding you that cooking is a very individualized activity. Therefore, feel free to pick a sweetener that you prefer to use and that works for you.
CAN YOU FREEZE THIS RECIPE?
The good news is that it can be frozen; that much is true. To easily preserve it for later use, just place it in the freezer.
