With just 3 ingredients and 10 minutes, you can have this incredible low carb Keto Blueberry Sauce. Drizzle it on ice cream, chaffles, crepes, cheesecake, or anything else you want to transform into an amazing dessert. There is no refined sugar, and it's also dairy-free, gluten-free, and grain-free.
I love this sugar free blueberry sauce enough I may sneak a spoonful once in a while. Don't judge! It's that good. 😉 So, if you are eating keto and still craving something sweet, you really need to try this sauce.
Besides how amazing it tastes, it is also so good at dressing up an ordinary dish and transforming it into extraordinary. We love to use it as a low carb blueberry topping on top of a scoop of keto vanilla ice cream after dinner. And I like to start the day with some almond flour chaffles or keto crepes with blueberry sauce. But really, you can add it to low carb pancakes, yogurt, smoothies, cheesecakes, or anything low carb recipes you like.
Blueberries are naturally sweet, so you don't have to add lots of sweeteners or other ingredients. It's important to me to feed my family as much food as I can that's not loaded with sugar and a bunch of weird ingredients. Plus, it's pretty easy to get my kids to eat anything that is blueberry flavored.
I wasn't kidding when I said you only needed 3 ingredients. It's amazing to me that something so simple can taste this incredible.
Frozen Blueberries - I like to use frozen blueberries because you can get delicious berries even when they aren't in season. Plus, they cook down and make the best sauce.
Sweetener - You don't need much sweetener for this keto blueberry sauce recipe.
Lemon Juice - Stick with using fresh lemon juice for best results.
How To Make Keto Blueberry Sauce
All you need to do is simmer the blueberries, sweetener, and lemon juice in a saucepan for 10 minutes.
After it has simmered, you can add the low carb blueberry sauce to a food processor, blender or use an immersion blender to puree. Once pureed, it's ready to enjoy. Serve warm or cold with your favorite dishes.
Is Blueberry Sauce Healthy?
Yes, this keto blueberry sauce is actually really healthy. Anything with blueberries that don't have a bunch of carbs and refined sugar is probably going to be healthy. Blueberries are filled with antioxidants that will keep you protected from free radicals. Plus, they also have a great amount of fiber, vitamin K, and vitamin C.
Can I Use Fresh Blueberries?
Yes, technically, you can use fresh blueberries. They may need to simmer a little bit longer to ensure that they are cooked soft enough. The skins of fresh blueberries are a little bit different than frozen, so you may need to strain the puree before serving if the skin bothers you. So, go ahead and give it a try to see what you like best. I prefer frozen because they cook quickly, and the texture is hard to beat.
Can I Add Different Low Carb Fruit?
Yep, you can use blackberries, raspberries, or strawberries on a low carb diet. The only issue with the other fruits is that they all have tiny seeds. The seeds can be offensive to some just because of the texture. If you aren't a fan of seeds, go ahead and run the puree through a fine-mesh strainer and discard them.
How Do You Store Keto Blueberry Sauce?
You'll need to keep the blueberry compote refrigerated except when you are serving. It will last in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. It's not a good idea to leave it sitting out longer than 2 hours unless you keep it on ice. It will start to spoil if it sits out longer than that at room temperature.
I prefer to store it in a glass mason jar, but really anything that is sealed tight should work well.
It actually freezes very well, and it's helpful to make a large batch and then save some for later. Freeze it in a freezer back and flatten out. Once frozen, you can move the bag around the freezer, and it won't take up much room.
