9 Fruits That Are Actually Keto-Friendly

The jury’s still out on whether the ketogenic (keto) diet is actually worth it . But, like it or not, this diet trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Yeah, the lists of foods you can and can’t eat on the low-carb diet are pretty daunting—but you don’t have to completely deprive yourself. While some fruits (apples, bananas, oranges) are off-limits, others are considered keto-friendly.

Here’s one small caveat: Carbs add up. Just because something is low in carbs doesn’t mean you should gorge yourself. In moderation, though, these nine fruits can make a great addition to your keto diet: 1. Avocados

The humble avocado (no, it’s not a vegetable) is pretty much the fruit to eat on the keto diet. It’s high in healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, but it’s extremely low in carbs.

Another should-be vegetable , tomatoes are super low in carbs but they’re a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. 3. Olives

You read that right, olives are actually fruits too! Are you noticing a theme here? The sweeter the fruit, the more likely it is to have a lot of carbs. That’s why fruits that we typically think of as vegetables are more keto-friendly than their sugary peers. 4-6. Blackberries, Raspberries, and Strawberries

Both raspberries and blackberries have 5 net carbs per 100 grams, while strawberries have 6 net carbs per 100 grams. Small amounts are are totally OK. Again, though, moderation is key. 7. Coconuts

Rich in healthy fats and nutrients. Low in carbs. Coconut is basically a keto dream. 8-9. Lemons and Limes

While you might want to stay away from oranges on the keto diet, feel free to flavor your foods with lemon and lime juice.
