Strawberry Cheese Keto Danish
Danishes are a favorite breakfast treat because they are so tasty, are great when you’re on the go, and are just amazingly good!
I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for a good keto-friendly breakfast item! There just aren’t a ton of options outside of eggs and bacon… at least there used to not be! In addition to this yummy Danish, there are some amazing options out there like our Keto French Toast Casserole, Best Ever Keto Cinnamon Roll Chaffles, and Keto Sausage Balls just to name a few!
Not only is this keto Strawberry Cheese Danish perfect for breakfast, it is also a great compliment to a good cup of coffee! If you’re a fellow coffee lover, this keto Danish will be your new go-to! The sweetness and flakiness of this keto danish will compliment any cup of Joe perfectly!
If you’re worried about this recipe being difficult or complicated, rest assured that it is actually very simple! You won’t have to labor for hours in the kitchen; these amazing keto danishes will be ready to be enjoyed much sooner than you might expect and with much less effort than you could imagine!
Other Topping Suggestions
One of the best things about this recipe, like almost all of our recipes, is that it is completely customizable. Specifically for this recipe, you can create pretty much any topping you would like! If Strawberries aren’t your favorite, or if you’d just like to try something else, you can feel free to swap in your favorite berry or topping instead!
Some delicious possibilities include:
- Cream Cheese & Cinnamon
In addition to these, another great option is chocolate! I am a firm believer that chocolate can make most things better, and this keto danish is no exception to that rule.
Some keto friendly chocolate chips or melted chocolate would make these already amazing keto danishes even better! Or, you could also bake some chocolate chips into the dough to create an absolutely amazing chocolate strawberry and cheese danish!
If you love chocolate as much as me, you MUST try ChocZero’s incredible keto-friendly baking chocolate chips if you haven’t already. They even make white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and new to the scene… peanut butter chocolate chips!! We use ChocZero for anything and everything we can get away with because we love it soo much!
If you want to try some keto-friendly chocolate chips with these keto Danishes, or if you just want some chocolate, bark, or syrups (all of which are 100% keto friendly) then shop ChocZero’s website! The products that are available are all incredible and honestly taste better than most “regular” chocolate I have ever tried.

How To Make Strawberry Cheese Keto Danishes
(scroll down below to view recipe card with full list of ingredients + instructions)
Add the mozzarella cheese and 2 oz of cream cheese to a microwave safe bowl. Heat at 30 second intervals until well combined and completely melted into a dough.
Place the cheese dough into a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients for the pastry. Mix until a well combined dough is formed.
Separate the dough into 8 evenly sized balls.
Wet your hands with water and roll each dough ball into a rope shape about a foot long.
Roll the dough ropes into a spiral, and use your finger to hollow out an indentation in the center of each one.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the ingredients for the cream cheese filling. Place a dollop of the cream cheese filling into the center of each pastry.
In a food processor or blender, combine the ingredients for the strawberry filing until smooth.
Add a dollop of strawberry filling to the center of each pastry as well. Bake for 20-25 minutes until browned and cooked through. Let cool.
Mix together ¼ cup sugar substitute with as much heavy whipping cream as needed to reach a glaze consistency that you like. Drizzle the glaze over the pastries and serve.
Best Tasting Sweetener of Keto or Low Carb Diet
As always, we love to use Lakanto’s Monkfruit in all of our recipes that require sweetener and these keto strawberry cheese danishes are no exception!
Lakanto is, in our opinion, by far the best keto friendly sweetener out there. It is completely natural, zero glycemic, has no nasty aftertaste, and has a 1:1 ratio to sugar. It makes keto baking so incredibly easy.
If you want to try Monkfruit for the first time, or if you just need to restock, shop Lakanto’s website and use our code, “BUTTERTOGETHERK” at checkout to save 20% off of your entire purchase! This code is good for anything on Lakanto’s site, not just their yummy sweetener.
More Low Carb Breakfast Ideas
If you’re looking for a simple scrambled eggs recipe or something a little sweeter like our Keto Coffee Cake, we’ve got lots of options available to you! Below are some of our favorite keto/low-carb breakfast options.
Chaffles have quickly become a staple on any keto/low-carb diet and for good reason! Chaffles are incredible simple to make, taste great, and can be used for almost anything. While a traditional chaffle may not be the best thing to whip up for breakfast, there are a number of other options that would be great!
Some of the best options might be:
- Keto Banana Nut Chaffles
- Best Ever Keto Cinnamon Roll Chaffles
- Keto Lemon Cake Chaffles
- Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Chaffle
French Toast Casserole
Our keto French Toast Casserole has quickly become a favorite of ours as it is so easy to make. Even on the laziest of mornings, this is never too hard to whip up. We think you’ll love it as much as we do!
The alternative to keto chaffles may be these keto pancakes, which are equally as delicious! As usual, this recipe is super easy to make and tastes delicious!
