Keto Raspberry Sauce is the perfect topping for all of your favorite low-carb breakfasts and sweet treats, from cheesecake to pancakes. With just four ingredients, it comes together in minutes with one saucepan. Keep this sugar-free raspberry sauce on-hand for dressing up your sweet keto dishes in a pinch. This recipe is gluten-free, low-carb, and refined sugar-free.
Why Make this Sugar-free Sauce
So many dessert sauces contain ingredients that are not keto, low-carb, or gluten-free. A goal of mine is to come up with recipes that show how diverse and delicious keto and gluten-free can be!
This sauce is great on everything, including my keto lemon cheesecake, almond flour keto waffles, pancakes, keto vanilla milkshake, cheesecake brownies, and coconut flour brownies.
Calories and Net Carbs in Raspberries
Raspberries are a delicious, velvety fruit mostly known for their seeds and red color. They are rich in fiber and antioxidants. Plus, they have a long list of other health benefits.
Fresh raspberries come in at 64 calories per cup and about 15 grams of carbs. Raspberries are usually a go-to choice because they have about 8g of fiber per cup, making them 7g net carbs for an entire cup.
This recipe features some typical ingredients found in a raspberry sauce, such as raspberries and lemon juice. I also include xanthan gum as a binder, which allows the sauce to have a luxurious, thickened texture.
To make this keto-friendly, I’m using an all-natural sugar alternative instead of white sugar. You can use whichever keto sweetener you prefer, however, I use and have tested this recipe with Monk Fruit Erythritol. I prefer this mixture over pure erythritol because it tastes sweeter, has less of a cooling effect, and is more of a 1:1 replacement for regular sugar.

How to Make It
Begin by adding all of the ingredients from the recipe card to a saucepan. Cook on medium until the raspberries warm and defrost. The sauce is ready when a syrup forms.
You should know that Xanthan gum serves as a thickener and cooks quickly so keep an eye on it. You can use this sauce to top the cheesecakes, ice cream, waffles, or pancakes once it cools.
