The next question most will have is how exactly do you make it. Simply follow these few tips and you’re on your way to enjoying the benefits of a healthy chocolate treat. Here they are!
You can substitute your high-carb sweetener for the sugar in any sugar free chocolate syrup recipe, if necessary. Erythritol, once added, will make it taste like sugar. This is a good substitute to utilize for a sugar free version. You can also do the same with cocoa powder, agave nectar or brown rice syrup.
Measuring Cup And Spoon
The next thing you need to know when making a sugar free chocolate syrup recipe is that you need to take out your measuring cup and spoon. If you don’t have one of these things, look for a brand that has both. You’ll also want to measure your sweetener, as it is usually measured in ounces. Some brands call for cups, while others use smaller dosing teaspoons.
Next, place your sugar free chocolate syrup recipe into your saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Then, remove your saucepan from the heat and allow your ingredients to steep for about five minutes. It would be wise to stir your ingredients often to keep them from boiling to dry.
Measured In Milligrams
Now it’s time to get out your measuring cup and spoon for measuring your homemade chocolate syrup or substitute your cup for the saucepan’s measuring cup. Whichever way you choose to measure, remember that your ingredients should be measured in milligrams. You may also want to consider using a food processor, which will make the process faster.
Toppings are going to be the last thing you’ll add to your sugar-free chocolate syrup recipe, and you want to try to use as little as possible. The main things you’ll want to do this with are vanilla extracts, honey and molasses. All of these natural sugars are easily turned into carbohydrates, which your body can then convert to stored energy. That means you’ll naturally burn off more calories when you’re using this type of sweetener.
Unsweetened Almond Milk And Vanilla
If you prefer, another option for your sugar free chocolate syrup recipe is to use a combination of unsweetened almond milk and vanilla. You can blend both together and store in an air-tight container.
This is often the best choice for those on low carbohydrate diets, who don’t want to have too many carbohydrates in their diet, especially if they’re also watching their fat intake. It’s also a good idea to keep some unsweetened almond milk on hand just in case you need a quick energy boost in the middle of the day.
Reduced Fat Free Heavy Cream
Lastly, the last part of this sugar free chocolate syrup recipe involves the heavy cream that’s normally added to many recipes. I typically try to use reduced fat free heavy cream, which will help cut down on the overall calories. It’s really up to you, though, so feel free to substitute half of the heavy cream with less calories if you prefer. Just make sure to use the low carb fondue mix outlined above, as well as the unsweetened almond milk and vanilla for flavoring. Once you’ve got all of your ingredients together, it’s time to cook your homemade chocolate syrup recipe. Bring to a gentle boil and stir constantly.
As the mixture boils, stir it regularly to prevent the mixture from boiling over. Allow it to boil for approximately five minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning. When it’s done, transfer it to a serving bowl and allow it to cool. Your sugar free chocolate syrup will be very hot when it’s cooled, so wait a few minutes before serving it. Stir again before serving, just to be sure that it’s completely cool. Before serving, place about 1 tablespoon of the homemade chocolate syrup in each of your guests’ bowls. Be sure to serve them immediately when it’s cool, or at room temperature if possible. They’ll love the fact that you made the switch from regular ice cream keto to sugar free and they’ll probably be back for more!
If you make this recipe once, it’s much better for you than buying expensive artificial sweeteners every week. It also helps you avoid spending money on those “natural” types of sugar-free products that taste like chemicals and add nothing to your diet. You can find recipes for your homemade sugar free chocolate syrup online. Or if you don’t have access to those types of resources, consider using store bought brands that come in handy in other ways.
