*While blueberries come in at a higher carb count when eaten alone in a 1/2 cup serving, we still love to use them in some of our delicious keto recipes. We tend to go with 1/3 – 1/2 cup spread out over several servings to bring the net carb count down to a more keto-friendly number.

To be fair, it is a 1/2 cup serving, so it’s not a huge amount of watermelon, but even if you do a 3/4 cup it’s not that bad carb-wise. Grab a serving and throw a little salt on top and you’re good to go!
