Can I have caramel on the keto diet?
Regular caramel has a ton of sugar and carbs.
One serving of regular caramel can pack a punch of up to 50 g. total carbohydrates!
This caramel sauce, however, tastes just the same with only 1 carb per serving and it is under 100 calories.
Is this caramel like regular caramel?
Yes. In fact, it reminds me of old fashioned caramel from fairs or caramel covered popcorn, similar to Cracker Jacks.
How do I make caramel sauce low carb?
Easy. Only three ingredients! You’ll need:
- heavy whipping cream
- granulated erythritol
- … and a pinch of salt if you like salty caramel 😉
If you’re only on a low carb diet, you may also want to add a teaspoon of molasses.
It helps give a darker color and a bit more of an old fashioned flavor.
No molasses on hand? No worries. Your caramel sauce will be brilliant regardless.
