Keto Chocolate Syrup Inspiration
Trying to find the perfect sugar-free chocolate syrup has been a long journey.
Because store-bought brands can leave a weird aftertaste, I knew I wanted to make my own with simple ingredients.
In trying-out lots of desserts, I’ve learned that all low-carb sweeteners have their advantages and disadvantages.
For instance, sometimes you have to mix sweeteners to get the right consistency.
And, sometimes that means using one sweetener over another.
Also, I found that to create a pourable chocolate syrup I had to try a lot of different sweeteners.
Finally, allulose was the perfect fit for keeping the chocolate sauce in liquid form.
How to Make Keto and Low-sugar Chocolate Sauce
- 2/3 cup quality cocoa powder
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup allulose
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the water, sweetener, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk until well combined.
- Bring to a boil, not stirring, for 4-5 minutes, until thick. It will be bubbly and thick when it’s ready.
- Remove mixture from heat and add the vanilla. Whisk to combine.
- Let this cool for half an hour before transferring to a jar.
- Pour over cookies, ice cream, or your favorite dessert.

Keto Chocolate Syrup Pointers
So, before you get started making this chocolate perfection, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
I suggest using dutch process cocoa if possible, as it helps to neutralize the bitterness of traditional cocoa powder.
Don’t forget the salt
Salt helps enhance and intensify chocolate flavors, so don’t skip it.
Try and choose a high-quality brand of organic vanilla to help meld the flavors together.
For this recipe, you need a sweetener that thickens and doesn’t recrystallize.
Your options include allulose, bocha sweet, or xylitol.
Erythritol-based sweeteners won’t work.
Let it cool
The chocolate syrup will continue to thicken as it sits.
After that, you can store it in the fridge or even on the counter for a few days.
There isn’t anything in it that will spoil, so I’d say to keep it for one week.
