Dairy-Free Summer Keto Party Food
When the weather is hot and sunny you sort of naturally fall into a celebratory kind of mood. This usually leads to backyard BBQs and parties by the beach. Now, if you’re like me, and you probably are or else you wouldn’t be reading a keto blog post, you want some keto dairy-free options! Here are some great dairy-free summer keto party food options.
How many times have you gone to a picnic and the food choices are so laden with carbs that you can feel your insulin levels rising just standing near them? *Raises Hand*
I get it, most summer parties are going to have a host of potato salad, mac salad, and hot dog buns on the menu. It’s tradition, right? Wrong! Well, it doesn’t have to be, anyway. You can bring your own low-carb creations to the party. Plus, as we all know, keto food is so satiating nobody can ever tell that it’s “healthy”.
This roundup gives you some ideas on what you can serve this summer at park picnics, backyard BBQs, and beach parties.

These yummy little bun-less burgers won’t leave you crabby, hungry, and crashing 2 hours later. Honestly, these little guys taste like a Big Mac. They’re really good and very easy to make.

You may be scratching your head at this one, especially if you’re new to the ketogenic WOE. Potatoes? In a keto recipe? No way!
Way, doll face.
You see, there aren’t any actual potatoes in this salad. Instead, turnips and rutabaga are used. When boiled, these veggies taste just like potatoes. It’s pretty amazing. You no longer have to grieve potato salad at your family’s annual summer BBQ. Just make this wonderful keto version found at Keto Diet App.

What’s a summer picnic without a yummy dessert? I came up with these shockingly fudgy brownies when I had a hankering for something sweet and decadent. It’s difficult to go to the grocery store and find non-dairy brownies. So, instead of never eating brownies again, I created my own non-dairy recipe. Enjoy!
