Keto Iced Vovo biscuits wasn’t on my plan of recipes to make but after creating a beautiful plain biscuit I knew these would be an easy make and delicious! Boy was I right.

Iced Vovos were a rarity for my brothers and I when we were growing up as we mostly had no “junk” food in our family home. Occasionally treats were available and sometimes Iced Vovos were the coveted treat.

Keto Iced Vovos just seemed an easy recipe for me and I know there is such an incredible amount of recipes of various versions of Iced Vovos on the internet I thought a sugar free keto Iced Vovo version may be a welcome recipe in many keto households.

Keto Iced Vovo Variations

The jam and buttercream recipes can be altered easily to suit your own taste and even to reduce carbohydrate count.

I made the jam with raspberries but you can swap for any berries your choose.  Same with the buttercream. While I used a small amount of strawberry puree, you can just easily just add a little natural pink food colouring to colour the buttercream and flavour it with vanilla or lemon zest.  Even that in itself would give you a great variation. How about a lemon curd strip and lemon butter cream.  YummOH!

This Keto Iced Vovo biscuit recipe is far from hard to make and you can actually make the biscuit ahead of time and keep in an airtight container until you are ready to ice and serve. Once iced please store in the fridge and consume with 2-3 days.

I am working on a complete family favourites assortment at the moment including many of the biscuits I remember craving as a kid. So stay tuned for Tim Tams, Mint Slice, Caramel Crowns, Kingston, Monte Carlo, Oreo, and Yo-Yo biscuits.  For now you can enjoy my keto Iced Vovo biscuits  and please share your creations on our FB group below.

      I can’t believe I hadn’t made these before now. They are awesome and look and taste like an iced vovo. I didn’t realise that my husband really loved these and I have caught him with his hand in the cookie jar a few times now . That’s how I know they rate really high 😍😍
      I know I will be making these again.
