Low Carb Orange Creamsicle Cake
Creamsicles are a summer tradition! Theres nothing like cooling off on a hot summers day with the refreshing tang of a delicious creamsicle.
I have fond memories of chasing down the ice cream truck in the summers so I could buy an orange creamsicle. If you’re like me, creamsicles occupy a special place in your heart.
The sweetness and flavor of an orange popsicle mixed with the refreshing coolness of vanilla ice cream is second to none. There really is nothing better! Well, at least, there used to not be! This awesome Low Carb Orange Creamsicle cake is as tasty and refreshing as your favorite summer treat, but without the sugar or carbs!
Let the ice cream man drive on by because this low carb orange creamsicle cake is all you need this summer!
Is Orange Creamsicle Cake “Keto”?
It’s important to remember that “keto” is a metabolic state, not an ingredient. Technically speaking, anything is “keto” as long as you are able to eat it and maintain your state of ketosis.
Now, I don’t recommend eating obviously unhealthy foods, but it is worth pointing out that there is no designated list of “keto” foods. Again, as long as something fits into your daily macros and doesn’t kick your body out of a state of ketosis, then it is technically “keto.”
With that in mind, you should know that this cake will not kick your body out of a state of ketosis. As you will see in the recipe card, there is just a little bit of orange zest in this recipe, and 1 tsp of orange juice.You could even use orange extract if you want to pass on the tiny amount of orange juice in this recipe.
A slice or two of this cake will not affect your state of ketosis at all, and even if you eat the entire thing (which I don’t recommend, but I would certainly understand if you can’t resist) you would probably be okay. So, long story short, this yummy cake is definitely “keto!”
