Keep reading this recipe to learn how to make a unique sugar free chocolate sauce, which is mouth-watering, keto friendly and healthy at the same time!

Tips & Notes:

You do not have to use allulose if you are not a fan of it. You just need to keep in mind that you need a type of sweetener that will thicken your mixture but will not let it recrystallize. Besides allulose, your other options are xylitol or Bocha Sweet. Sadly, for most of the erythritol lovers out there, it is not a suitable option due to its tendency to recrystallize when you heat it. 

Do not save money on cocoa powder. Buy a high-quality one because it will blend much easier with the other ingredients and has a naturally sweeter taste.

Under no circumstances skip the salt! Salt intensifies the chocolate flavor so it is an integral part of the recipe. 

Be patient – let it cool. The consistency of the sauce will thicken as it cools.

Why is it better to make this sauce, instead of buying one?

Most recipes for chocolate sauce contain cocoa powder, sugar, water, chocolate and corn syrup, which is exactly what it sounds like – a ton of sugar! It is neither suitable for keto diets nor good for your health. The good news is that this sugar free sauce is super tasty and is not inferior to your favorite ones, which contain a huge amount of sugars, fats and unnecessary calories!
