Low-Carb Snacks: Berries

Strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries can be eaten in small amounts on a keto low-carb diet. Even blueberries are allowed on the keto diet in small portions. That’s because berries are lower in carbohydrates and in sugar.

  • Raspberries – 1/2 cup contains 3 grams of net carbs.
  • Blackberries – 1/2 cup contains 4 grams of net carbs.
  • Strawberries – 1/2 cup contains 6 grams of net carbs.
  • Blueberries – 1/2 contains 6 grams of net carbs.

More importantly, berries have a low glycemic load and index, making them a perfect choice for keto or low carb appetizer snacks.
