40+ healthy keto and low-carb Easter recipes

Need some fresh ideas for a keto or low-carb Easter brunch and dinner? We have some fantastic recipes for your holiday meal.

Whether you celebrate with a traditional Easter dinner, start early with a special brunch or skip straight to dessert, we’ve got the perfect Easter recipe to celebrate with your family.

We’ve selected traditional dishes with ingredients common to spring such as luscious lemon, asparagus, green beans, and tender leaf salads — all delicious if you’d like to pair them with pork, lamb, beef, chicken, or seafood.

Save a few carbs for Easter dessert because we’ve also included some treats for your holiday.


Starting the holiday with the perfect brunch

Easter brunch is perfect for those who like a lazier Easter morning, but still want to celebrate with a festive meal. Try a fantastic and easy egg dish, like the scrumptious Keto eggs benedict on avocado.

Don’t be intimidated by the thought of making hollandaise sauce. This recipe makes it so easy that you’ll kick yourself for not making it years ago. Also, if you’re not a fan of smoked salmon, serve the eggs benedict with a side of crispy bacon or ham. Omit the meat completely for a delicious vegetarian option.

The Ham and cheese quiche with cauliflower crust can be made ahead of time. To lower the carb count and to save even more time, you can omit the crust and make the entire recipe crustless. Your family will also be impressed with the Keto croque monsieur. It’s as easy as it is tasty, and perfect for the holiday.

Just because it’s morning, doesn’t mean that you have to serve eggs. Surprise the family with Low carb ricotta and lemon pancakes or let them enjoy low-carb granola that you can make in advance for an easier Easter morning.

You might also try our keto baked salmon with lemon butter served along side a steaming bowl of broccoli cheddar soup for a casual, but delicous low-carb or Keto Easter brunch.

Keto and low-carb Easter dinner

Main dishes

If you prefer to offer an inclusive Easter buffet lunch or dinner, sort through these options to find meat dishes, vegetarian or vegan options as well as foods for those avoiding eggs or dairy.

Popular meat dishes for Easter tend to focus on lamb, beef, or pork, but we also have perfectly celebratory poultry and seafood options. Your family will be delighted when they see a gorgeous Pepper-crusted beef tenderloin with herbed steak sauce or a Bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with roasted garlic mash.

Want a deceptively simple, but perfectly keto Easter dinner? Serve our Pork chops with green beans in garlic butter, which is ready to serve in about 30 minutes. It’s delicious with our Low-carb garlic and herb cauliflower mac and cheese topped with bacon.

Less traditional, but equally delicious is the Keto chicken with lemon and butter. Lemon lends itself to spring flavors, so use it with poultry or seafood.

Side dishes

Sides can be simple with an emphasis on spring vegetables and light sauces that add fat and flavor, especially lemon and butter. Creamy lemon green beans or Lemon cream artichokes are two very simple, but flavorful sides that you’ll want on your table.

If you would like to offer some vegan or dairy-free options, try the luscious Low carb zucchini and walnut salad which has a perfect texture and taste. There’s also a creamy Vegan kale and spinach soup that everyone can enjoy.


Keto and low-carb Easter Desserts

The Easter bunny can easily fill your baskets with keto or low-carb Easter treats using our many keto or low-carb dessert recipes.

Healthier versions of candy, cakes, cheesecakes, and ice cream are ideal Easter desserts, especially when chocolate is included.

Keto and low-carb Easter cakes

Some of our favorite cake recipes will grace your table with classic Easter flavors. There’s chocolate, of course, strawberry cake with rich vanilla buttercream, and a keto lemon cake layered with lemon curd, and a silky mascarpone frosting.

Keto and low-carb ice cream

If you’ve never enjoyed ice cream for Easter, then it’s time for a new tradition! Homemade keto and low-carb ice cream made with full-fat cream, whipped eggs, and fresh ingredients are an unmatched treat.

Start with vanilla and provide toppings to suit multiple guests or surprise them with the bright taste of lemon in a frosty treat. And if you’re really feeling fancy, spoil the room with our Low-carb cookie dough ice cream for a holiday to remember.

Whatever your low carb or keto dishes grace your table, we hope that you and your loved ones enjoy this spring holiday of renewal.
