I've been on the carnivore diet for seven years, and occasionally, I try different carnivore diet desserts to get out of the meat rut.

After years of trial and error on different carnivore diet dessert recipes, extensive research, and consultations with fellow enthusiasts, I finally narrowed it down to the best six.

Read on to find out the recipes you can try out.

Quick Summary

  • Carnivore recipes include carnivore cake, cheesecake, ice cream, egg pudding, donuts, and egg souffle.
  • Carnivore diet desserts are low in carbs and sugar-free, providing a sweet treat for those on a meat-only diet.
  • Overconsumption of desserts with sugar or carbs can disrupt weight and fat loss routines, so moderation is key.

Carnivore Diet Desserts

Transitioning to the carnivore diet can be a little challenging because the diet eliminates everything except for meat and water.

And finding suitable desserts to eat in this meat-only lifestyle isn't a cakewalk either.

Luckily, here are six of my absolute favorite carnivore-friendly dessert ideas.

1. Carnivore Cake

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 2hrs
  • Total Time: 2hr 15mins
  • Number of Servings: 4


  • 1 pound beef liver
  • ½ pound beef tongue
  • ½ pound pork back fat
  • 2 teaspoons Redmond salt


  • Cube all the meat and throw it into a food processor. Purée until smooth.
  • Pour the puree into a medium-sized cake pan and securely wrap it in foil, ensuring the foil completely brims the pan to prevent water from entering.
  • Bake at 300°F for 2 hours or until the meat is tender but not scorched or burnt. I use a food thermometer to get the perfect cooked cake and ensure it registers 160°F internal temperature [1].
  • Remove from the oven, set aside to cool slightly, and serve.

I usually make a bigger cake to refrigerate the leftovers for a couple of days and slightly reheat when needed.

2. Carnivore Cheesecake

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 50 mins
  • Total Time: 1hr 10 mins
  • Number of Servings: 4


You'll need two batches of ingredients for this carnivore-friendly cheesecake recipe (for crust and filling).


  • 140g almond flour
  • 55g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence


  • 650g cream cheese
  • 110ml heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a large baking pan. I use an 8-inch one so that I can bake everything once.
  • Heat your butter in a microwave till it completely melts.
  • In a mixing dish, combine the almond flour, sour cream, sweetener, and vanilla essence. Mix until you get a dough.
  • Spread the dough on the bottom of your baking pan until it is equally covered.
  • Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the top is gently brown. Set aside and chill while preparing the filling.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C) for the following stage.
  • Whisk together the filling ingredients for a few minutes.
  • Pour the mixture over the almond layer and bake for 30 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
  • Reduce the heat to 230°F (110°C) and continue baking for another 20 minutes.
  • Cool before serving.

You’ll notice I used almond flour for this carnivore cheesecake recipe which IS basically plants food. Hence, this carb cheesecake is more keto-friendly and not suitable for you if you’re on a strict low-carb diet.

3. Carnivore Ice Cream

When I started on my carnivore diet, I thought I was missing out on ice cream treats until I found this delicious, easy-to-make carnivore ice-cream recipe and tried it out.

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Rest Time: 1hr
  • Total Time: 1hr 25 mins
  • Number of Servings: 3


  • 2 Eggs
  • 300 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp organic vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Xylitol


  • Separate your egg yolks and whites. (We need them for different purposes).
  • Heat your cream, vanilla extract, and the Xylitol sweetener in a small saucepan until it thickens. Then add in your whisked egg yolks on extremely low heat and thicken the mixture further.
  • Use a stand mixer with a bowl and set with the whisk hook; blend the egg whites until frosty.
  • Fold the egg yolk mixture into the frosty egg whites and pour into a freezer-safe jar. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

Once frozen, I like to defrost a little and enjoy a couple of scoops!

Note: Cool your heavy cream for a few minutes and use low heat once you add your yolks to avoid cooking them.

4. Carnivore Egg Pudding

This carnivore egg pudding recipe is healthy and simple to make. I love keeps me energized throughout the day.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Rest Time: 60 mins
  • Total Time: 70 mins
  • Number of Servings: 4


  • 4 soft-boiled eggs
  • 1 ½ tbsp grass-fed butter
  • 120g raw milk
  • ½ tsp cinnamon extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of saltto eat this in the morning because it's an excellent protein source


  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients and blend till smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container and refrigerate for at least 60minutes to chill.
  • Slice and enjoy this delicious carnivorous egg pudding!

This dish is not suitable for strict carnivores since it contains sugar, vanilla essence, and a hint of cinnamon. You can make it without these components, but it won't taste as great.

I have a sweet tooth, but I only eat this delicious dessert a couple of times a month because these sugars can add up pretty quickly and affect my blood sugar levels.
