Keto Raspberry Sauce is incredibly delicious, easy to make, and the perfect addition to ice cream, waffles, pancakes, and other sweet foods. The bright and vibrant color will complete any breakfast, brunch, or dessert bar. Plus, it's free of refined sugar, dairy-free, gluten-free, keto, and THM friendly.
I love making sauces and curds! They can take an ordinary recipe and transform it into something extra special. My keto lemon curd, keto blueberry sauce, and my homemade keto barbecue sauces can be found in my house at any given time.
So, it only makes sense that I make a fruit sauce with raspberries. Because they are slightly tart and sweet, they are a huge favorite of mine. Whether I am in the mood for a small handful or a full-on dessert, I reach for raspberries frequently. But, the best part is that you only need 3 ingredients! I don't think it can get much better than that.
But you guys...this sugar free raspberry sauce recipe is AMAZING! I may or may not have had a spoonful all by itself when it was ready! 🙂 It's a recipe you will want to keep nearby because once you taste how incredible it is, you are going to want to prepare it all the time.
Cooking this keto friendly low carb raspberry sauce couldn't be any easier. The recipe comes together in less than 20 minutes. The rest of the time is spent waiting for it to cool, but it's completely worth the wait!
- Raspberries - Nothing beats fresh raspberries!
- Sweetener - Even the sweetest raspberries need a touch of extra sweetness when making sauce with them.
- Lemon Juice - A little bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice adds some extra tanginess.
How To Make Keto Raspberry Sauce
If you are looking for a quick, easy, and sweet recipe that doesn't have any refined sugars...THIS IS IT!
Step One: Place the fresh raspberries and sweetener in a small stockpot. Use a potato masher to press down on the berries until the juices begin to flow.
Step Two: Turn the heat to medium-low and cook for about 10 minutes. Once the raspberries have softened, mash some more with the potato masher. Continue to smash until the mixture is juicy and there are only small pieces of raspberries. If you want to strain out the seeds with a fine-mesh sieve you can but it is not necessary.
Step Three: Stir in the lemon juice and chill. As the keto sauce cools, it will begin to thicken. Serve, and enjoy once cold!
What Do You Serve With Raspberry Sauce?
The options for serving the sauce are endless! Here are a few ideas that I think you will love:
- Ice Cream - We all love ice cream, so it makes sense to add some sauce on top! Be sure to try my keto vanilla ice cream; the flavors are pretty much magical together.
- Yogurt - Plain sugar free Greek yogurt can be a little boring, so why not give it some pizzazz with this raspberry sauce.
- Cottage Cheese - Okay, you might be thinking this sounds a little strange, but trust me! It's so good. The creaminess of the cottage cheese and the sweetness of the sauce is a match made in food heaven.
- Cheesecake - You can swirl this into a no-bake cheesecake or regular cheesecake before baking or use it as a topping when serving. It is excellent on my keto cheesecake cupcakes or ricotta cheesecake.
- Pancakes - Grab your favorite pancake recipe like my keto buttermilk pancakes and drizzle them with raspberry sauce. Or try something extra fun and make my blueberry lemon ricotta pancakes.
- Waffles - Another favorite breakfast item of mine! These gluten free keto low carb waffles are a dream with my sauce recipe.
These are just a few of the ideas I have. You can try it and add it to many, many other foods.
Can I Use Other Berries or Frozen Raspberries?
Sure! As long as you are swapping them for a low-carb fruit, you shouldn't have any problems. Blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries are all tasty options in low carb recipes.
Frozen berries are also fine. Because I typically have good-quality raspberries near where I live, that is what I normally use. However, if you don't have that option, frozen berries are a great alternative. They just need to be cooked the same way as fresh; only they may take a minute or two longer.
How Do I Store Keto Raspberry Sauce?
Store the easy raspberry sauce in an airtight container. I like small jars with lids, but anything that is sealed properly will work. The sauce will last in the fridge for 4-5 days.
It is also easy to freeze leftover berry sauce! Store it in an airtight container, and you can freeze it for 3-4 months—Thaw in the fridge before serving. Sometimes I will make a double batch so that I can freeze it and have it on hand for later.
