When I started keto I created a list of my favorite foods. Finding keto alternatives to every food on the list was the goal. It’s no surprise chocolate syrup was one of the listed foods.

Chocolate syrup is perfect for desserts, but it’s also wonderful stirred into coffee, hot chocolate, or even drizzled over bacon. Okay, I haven’t tried it on bacon, yet, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to try.

For the less courageous, it might be better to drizzle your chocolate syrup over strawberries. Not too many strawberries, however, the carbs from natural sugars can creep up on you if you’re not careful. Although, this would be a delicious keto treat, especially if you top it with a dollop of homemade whipped cream. Add in a vanilla keto mug cake and you’re on your way to a keto strawberry shortcake with chocolate drizzle.

  1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and whisk constantly over medium low heat. Once sauce reaches desired consistency remove from heat and cool. Pour into container and store in refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

Get your tasting spoons out and adjust your sweetener or cacao powder to your personal preference. If it gets too thick, just thin it out with a bit of water.

When adding xanthan gum make sure you are whisking constantly to avoid clumping. You may also want to mix the sweetener, cacao powder and xanthan gum in a small bowl prior to adding to the water.

Xanthan gum is added to this recipe to help thicken it up faster/easier. Feel free to omit if you don't have this ingredient on hand, but it may take a bit longer on the heat to evaporate the syrup to your desired consistency.
