Keto Raspberry Sauce

Today I bring another way to follow a low carb diet without giving up all desserts and treats! No matter if you are following a keto, dirty keto, or just plain low carb diet plan, it is pretty tough to find a way to deal with the urge for dessert. This keto raspberry sauce goes a long way to help with that!

Ingredients needed for this healthy raspberry sauce

  • Sugar free jam – raspberry or strawberry
  • Raspberries – fresh or frozen – 9 ounces

This sauce is based on my regular raspberry sauce which I used for meringue hearts. I intended to make it using sugar-free raspberry jam. But I have not been successful finding this item. Instead, I used strawberry with great success. When I can locate sugar free raspberry jam, I’ll make it that way, and I have no doubt that it will be great. The good news is, it’s still fantastic with sugar free strawberry jam as a substitute.

How to make keto raspberry sauce

This is the easiest sauce ever. Start with the sugar free jam, begin warming it in a small saucepan. Then add the raspberries. If using frozen, no need to thaw first. It’ll just take a few extra minutes to warm them up. I use a spatula to break up any chunks and get them spread evenly in the pan.

Heat this mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring steadily. I’ll only take a couple minutes. Once it is boiling, cook for about a minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and allow to cool. For a smoother sauce, use an immersion blender and blend the sauce for a minute or two. This will break up any remaining chunks as well as some of the seeds.


How do I make a seedless raspberry sauce?

The immersion blender seems to break up some of the seeds for me, but this is definitely not a seedless sauce. In order to achieve that, you will need to strain the raspberries or the sauce. Please refer to my standard raspberry sauce directions or the notes in the recipe card below.

How do I make a thicker raspberry sauce?

This recipe makes a nice, pourable sauce with just 2 ingredients. But if you want a much thicker sauce, add just a little xanthan gum. I used ¼ teaspoon and felt the sauce was too thick for me, so maybe try 1/8 teaspoon for this quantity of sauce. A little xanthan gum goes a very long way!

Is this the same as keto raspberry compote?

A fruit compote is made by cooking fruit in water with sugar and spices. This recipe just simplifies all that by using jam with the fruit.

  • 1/3 cup sugar free Strawberry jam or raspberry
  • 9 oz raspberries fresh or frozen


  • In a small saucepan heat jam and raspberries on medium heat. Continue heating until raspberries begin to break up and sauce starts to simmer. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, for one minute. Remove from heat.
  • If desired, use an immersion blender to break up any remaining raspberry pieces as well as some of the seeds.
  • Allow sauce to cool before use.



For a seedless sauce, right after cooking pour into a fine mesh strainer placed over a bowl. Use the back of a spoon to press the sauce through the strainer. This will separate almost all the seeds from the sauce.

Serving suggestions for this low sugar raspberry sauce

This sauce will provide a pop of color and flavor to so many keto desserts!

What is xanthan gum

Xanthan gum is a popular additive commonly added to foods as a thickener or stabilizer. It’s created when sugar is fermented by a type of bacteria called Xanthomonas campestris. The resulting substance is dried and turned into a powder.

When xanthan gum powder is added to a liquid, it quickly disperses and creates a viscous and stable solution. This makes it a great thickening, suspending and stabilizing agent for many products.

Even though it’s made in a lab, it’s a soluble fiber. Soluble fibers are carbs that your body cannot breakdown. Since your body is not able to digest xanthan gum, it does not provide any calories or nutrients. (

    Oh, I bet this would be delicious on toast in the morning! My family loves berries of all types, so I can’t wait to make this for them. And a good way to use my immersion blender since it doesn’t get a lot of use.
