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

After years of trial and error on different carnivore diet dessert recipes, I finally narrowed it down to the best six, which I'll share today.

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

Quick Summary

  • Strive to eat carnivore diet desserts that are low in carbs and sugar-free.
  • If you find recipes with a bit of sugar or carbs, avoid frequently eating as this can interfere with your weight and fat loss routine.
  • Egg pudding, carnivore cake, and carnivore donuts are great carnivore diet desserts to try out on a meat-only diet.

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.
  • 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.

What Treats Can You Have on a Carnivore Diet?

You can have treats like carnivore cake or ice cream on a carnivore diet. Ensure these treats are made with carnivore-friendly ingredients.

Can You Have Whipped Cream on a Carnivore Diet?

Yes, you can have whipped cream on a carnivore diet because it's a dairy product.

Is Sugar Allowed on a Carnivore Diet?

No, sugar is not allowed on a carnivore diet because this elimination diet strictly permits meat and dairy products. However, if you're not a strict carnivore dieter, you can use zero-carb sweeteners or organic sugar.

Satisfy Your Cravings With the Best Carnivore Desserts

The recipes shared here are simple and easy to make in a blink of an eye. When you eat desserts to satisfy sweet cravings, always stick to the ones made solely with animal foods and contain minimal zero-fiber plant foods.

But because most strict carnivore diet desserts lack essential nutrients, I recommend you consistently incorporate multivitamin-rich carnivore diet supplements into your routine to ensure you cover all your nutritional bases.

These healthy supplements tick all the right boxes; they're a natural source of vitamin C and are additives and filler-free.
