Homemade Strawberry Sauce – Keto and Low Carb

strawberry sauce keto and low carb

Strawberries are in season and I absolutely love them!  I made this strawberry sauce to use in a few recipes (coming soon), but there are many other uses for it!   You can add some to plain yogurt, waffles, Keto french toast, make a protein shake with it, drizzle it over a piece of pound cake or angel food cake, and pour it over ice cream or my fluffy pancakes (see recipe here),  just to name a few.  Give this delicious sauce a try and I’m betting you’ll come up with many more uses for it!

Ingredients

2 pounds of fresh strawberries, diced

2 tablespoons swerve confectioners

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon beef gelatin powder

Pinch of salt

Preparation

Add the strawberries, swerve, salt to a pot and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes or until they break down a bit.

Add the strawberries to the bowl of a food processor and sprinkle the gelatin over the top.

Process until smooth.

Pour into a bowl and allow to come to room temperature.

Transfer to jars and store in the fridge and freezer.

I would store all the jars in the freezer, except for one.  When you get low, take another one from the freezer and store in the fridge.  This will last for months in the freezer and about a week or so in the fridge, once thawed.

You can serve over my vanilla ice cream (shown below),  just omit the chocolate chips.  Or over my Fluffy Pancakes!

*Note:  Add a little less gelatin for a thinner sauce and add a little more for a jam-like consistency.

This sauce thickens as it chills.  If you’d like it looser, you can either take it out 15 minutes before you use it or set the jar in some hot water and it will loosen up again.

Can you use Xanthum gum in place of beef gelatin?
