Forget about sugar-filled treats from the store. This Keto frozen chocolate berry dessert only takes five minutes to put together and it’s easy to make a big batch, so you’ll have chocolate on hand in your freezer when you need it. Luxurious dark chocolate is the perfect pairing with juicy blueberries and tangy raspberries. Not too sweet and packed with berry goodness, once you taste these frosty chocolate morsels, you’ll wonder what you ever saw in those sugary store-bought desserts.

5 Health Benefits of Berries

  1. Antioxidants: Berries are high in antioxidants. In fact, blueberries and raspberries have been shown in studies to have some of the highest antioxidant levels among commonly eaten fruits. [1]
  2. Blood sugar control: Some studies have found evidence that berries may help reduce blood sugar and insulin levels after high carb meals. Interestingly, these effects are not only found among people with elevated blood sugar or insulin levels but have also been seen in healthy participants. [2, 3]
  3. Anti-inflammatory effects: Berries have been found to be effective in reducing inflammation in several studies. In one study, a strawberry smoothie was found to lower inflammatory markers in overweight adults more than a similar beverage without strawberries. [4]
  4. Lower cholesterol: Studies have found berries, particularly black raspberries, and strawberries, to help lower “bad” cholesterol. One study found that drinking a drink made with freeze-dried strawberries helped adults with metabolic syndrome lower their “bad” cholesterol levels by over 10%. [5]
  5. Cancer-fighting power: Studies have linked some of the nutrients and antioxidants in berries with anti-tumor effects and lower risk of cancer. [6, 7]

3 Equipment Ideas to Take Your Chocolate Desserts to the Next Level

One of the best parts about this recipe is that it doesn’t need any special equipment. But if you make a lot of recipes like this one or you just want to try something new in your kitchen, read on for some equipment suggestions.

  1. Silicone Muffin Pan – What’s better than a regular metal muffin pan? A muffin pan you can easily get any muffin or candy out of by turning it inside out. If you invest in a silicone muffin pan (or silicone muffin wrappers) I recommend putting your silicone pan on a baking sheet to keep it from flopping around during baking or freezing!
  2. Candy thermometer – you plan on working with chocolate a lot, you’ll want a thermometer. I like the ones with a digital readout so there’s no guessing the temperature.
  3. Candy molds – These can be plastic or silicone but if you want to impress guests (or your mother in law) beautifully molded little chocolates are as easy as buying a mold.
