More Keto Spinach Recipes

There are so many great low carb spinach recipes online. On KetoAndEat you can find some of the most delicious keto recipes with spinach. One of my favorite ones is this keto spinach balls recipe.

I really like dishes made with spinach, but moderation is key- spinach is very high in oxalates and can cause issues if eaten in large quantities.

Eating a dish with spinach from time to time can be ok (as long as you don’t have any underlying health issues), but don’t make it a daily habit.

Mozzarella & Parmesan

I used these two kinds of cheese to give my keto creamed spinach a nice and creamy texture.

You can try and use other types of cheese, such as cheddar or gruyere, but in my opinion- nothing beats the classic combination of mozzarella and Parmesan!

Heavy Cream

Make sure to use full fat heavy cream for this keto creamed spinach recipe. It’s important to use full fat cream because it gives the creamed spinach a creamier texture and more flavor.

Low fat cream won’t work as well and the texture will be much more watery.

From time to time, I get comments from people who say that their dishes turned out watery. And when I ask what type of cream they used, I usually find out it was a low fat version.

Seasonings

I used some basic seasonings for my keto creamy spinach, but feel free to adjust the amounts or use different spices depending on your taste preferences.

Smoked paprika and garlic powder can be great additions, as can red pepper flakes or a pinch of nutmeg.

I hope you liked my low carb creamed spinach recipe. It’s really a great side dish, and it’s so easy to make.
