A delicious Valentines Day or anytime treat, this sweet keto raspberry sauce is amazing! Low-carb, sugar-free, paleo, vegan.
An incredibly delicious sweet treat!
I’m not someone who will often spend a lot of time to make desserts. However, when a special occasion presents itself, I’m happy to make something special for a loved one!
If you want to treat your honey to a delicious breakfast or dessert they will definitely enjoy, then this keto raspberry syrup is perfect. Not only is it great on pancakes, but you could also use it atop a chocolate mug cake or as a dipping sauce for some fruit.
With just a few simple tools, including a pot on the stove and a strainer, you too can make this delicious syrup! For ingredients, you’ll need some fresh or frozen raspberries, water, a sugar-free granulated sweetener of choice and xanthan gum.
The xanthan gum is the only ingredient you might not have in your house, but I swear it has changed my life since I started using it to thicken recipes! It’s a critical ingredient in this recipe, because without it, the mixture won’t thicken up properly.
The bag of xanthan gum will last for a very long time, since you only need a fraction of a teaspoon in most recipes, so you’ll definitely get your moneys worth on the purchase, trust me!
Definitely one of my favorite sweet indulgences!
To make this delightful syrup, you’ll want to start by adding water and raspberries to a pot and simmering until the raspberries dissolve. You can help them along by crushing the raspberries.
Once they have fully dissolved, strain the mixture, as we don’t want the raspberry seeds. To the liquid raspberry mixture, add the sweetener and xanthan gum.
Mix well until incorporated. Pour into a container with a dispenser, or use a spoon to add to your favorite breakfast or dessert of choice. Enjoy!
Is there a substitute for the xanthan gum?
I recommend using xanthan gum for this recipe, as it’s the only thickener I’ve used here personally. I’ve heard that guar gum works in the same way, although I have not personally tried it. I don’t recommend using flax, as that will make the syrup gritty.
Can I make this with other types of berries?
You certainly can! The process is exactly the same if you are using blueberries or blackberries. You could even make a mixed berry syrup, which sounds delicious!
