The Best Keto Summer Recipes
Summer is the perfect time to naturally cut back on carbs. With seasonal produce rolling in you can easily make salads, low-carb wraps, and keto-friendly dinners! Today I’m sharing 30+ low-carb cookout recipes you have to try. None of these recipes require an oven, they can all be made on a grill, griddle, or with a smoker. Some of these recipes don’t require cooking at all!
Keto BBQ Main Dishes
Go to keto-friendly main dishes includes grilled meats such as this Chipotle Ranch Chicken, Flank Steak, or Blackened Chicken. If you are feeding a crowd try this BBQ Pulled Pork, it has a sugar-free rub that is sweet and savory!
Keto Side Dishes
A Classic Broccoli Salad is always my go-to low carb side because absolutely no one ever misses the carbs! This chilled Caprese Salad with Asparagus or this delicious salad with a lemon vinaigrette! If you want to opt for a few grilled side dishes we loved this wrapped in bacon, or these Zucchini Wraps!
No Bake Keto Desserts
Enjoy something sweet without turning on your oven! This Chocolate Keto Milkshake, or Keto Coconut Milkshake are two of the best low carb shake recipes! You can also enjoy a slice of No Bake Cheesecake, or spoon this Sugar Free Strawberry Sauce over low carb ice cream!
Essentials for Summer Grilling
Even the most talented grill master needs the right tools! These are some of the most useful products we regularly use when we cookout!
- All the Essentials in one handy kit! This also makes a great host gift if you are invited to a summer party.
- These are great for sauces, condiments, or marinades, but I use one for water and one for oil when I am cooking on the Blackstone. It makes cooking a large meal a breeze!
- If you love skewers but don’t enjoy the extra step of threading everything onto them, this basket is for you! You can add small ingredients to the basket, season, cook and easily turn everything.
- These are essential for cooking on a griddle. These domes are perfect for melting cheese and making sure things are cooked through. They also work great to keep things warm as you finish up.
