Share this idea!

This low carb or Keto Strawberry Sauce recipe has all the rich syrupy flavor you’ve come to expect in strawberry sauce, but without all the added carbs and refined sugar.

My husband and I are trying to eat healthier, including converting to a ketogenic diet. We aren’t strict “dieters”, but rather we look at this as a new way of life on our journey to becoming healthier versions of ourselves.

But, I gotta tell you, we aren’t strict when it comes to what we eat. We probably should be stricter, but that will come. In the meantime, we simply try to make healthier choices, like substituting some of our favorite desserts with sweetener alternatives to sugar.

I really enjoy the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, by the way. It’s made with Splenda and real Brown Sugar, with a fraction of the carbs. I’ve used it for baking and in my homemade Dirty Chai Lattes. A little splurge for us on the weekends.

I’ve just recently started experimenting with Swerve Sweetener as a sugar alternative. So far, I’ve been really pleased. It measures just like sugar and comes in granular, powdered and even a brown sugar form.
