Sugar Free Strawberry Sauce

Making this sauce always brings back such great memories of watching my mom make homemade strawberry jam every summer.

The whole house was filled with a sweet, warm strawberry smell for an entire day.

Sometimes mom would let us stick our fingers in the syrupy foam that she skimmed off the top of the jam before putting it into jars to set.

Making this keto strawberry sauce is a nostalgic event for those of us who remember making jam with mom or grandma growing up!

Strawberry topping for cheesecake using frozen strawberries

Can I use frozen strawberries for this sugar free strawberry sauce?

Yes! In fact, for recipes where the strawberries are cooked, I prefer frozen strawberries instead of fresh. This is because frozen strawberries are actually healthier than fresh, if you can believe it!

Frozen strawberries are flash frozen right from the field, so they don’t need a bunch of unhealthy preservative sprays to keep them fresh-looking.

What can I use this keto strawberry sauce on?

The possibilities are endless! Try it on crepes, pancakes, waffles, these yummy Low Carb Dutch Baby Muffins, yogurt parfaits, scones, keto English muffins, this German Pancake, keto ice cream, cakes, and of course, cheesecake! Try it on these cute little No Bake Mini Cheesecake Cups.

    I’m going to try this tomorrow as my wife and I are going to make some cheesecakes for our kids. Thanks a lot for sharing!

    Can I make a large batch and freeze in freezer until use? Will thawing ruin the texture/taste?
    Thanks in advance! :)

      It should be fine! I would first wrap it in plastic wrap, and then a layer of foil over that before putting it int the freezer. Thaw it in the fridge before eating. Enjoy!

        This is absolutely amazing! My only problem is I only get about 4 servings at 1/8 cup . What am I doing wrong???

        • Jenn March 3, 2021 at 3:26 pm - Reply

          That’s a really good question. I’m not really sure, to be honest. I wonder if your strawberries released less juices. I just made it for some ice cream today and used a different brand than normal of frozen strawberries and I was impatient, so I didn’t let them thaw first. Mine ended up with a lot less liquid this time around. I hope that helps!

    I loved this recipe! My only issue was the sauce kind of crystallized instead of staying smooth. I used powdered erythritol. Do you have any recommendations for that not to happen next time?
    Still tasted great!

    • Jenn March 3, 2021 at 2:47 pm - Reply

      That’s a really great question. I’ve actually decided to go back and add an ingredient to this recipe because of the nature of erythritol and how easily it crystallizes. It calls for monkfruit sweetener, but most monkfruit sweeteners also have erythritol. And if you chose to only use erythritol in this recipe, you’d most definitely come across the crystallization problem. Just add 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum when the strawberries have released their juices a bit and it starts to look more like a sauce. Just be sure to sprinkle the xanthan gum and not dump it on. It will clump pretty easily if you just dump it. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I love making this sauce in the cold months when I want to remember summer! :)

    This is a delicious recipe! Can you please remove the pictures from the written recipe? I’d like to print it, but the pictures would use so much ink! Thanks!

      I’m so sorry! I looked into it and my plugin doesn’t allow that yet. I wish it would! I believe the company is working on a fix for that for the future. Thanks for asking!
