Keto Condiment Recipes

Keto Hummus

Keto Hummus

The creamy deliciousness of hummus is hard to resist. Unfortunately, so are the high-carb ingredients. Most hummus products and recipes rely on chickpeas (garbanzo beans) — a legume with ~5 grams of net carbs per ounce. This renders what could be a keto-friendly dip into something that is difficult to fit into the keto diet. Rather than avoiding hummus altogether, we’ve decided to convert it to the keto side. With this recipe, we’ll show you how to make keto hummus without the ...

Keto Nutella: Sugar-free Hazelnut Spread

Keto Nutella: Sugar-free Hazelnut Spread

Nutella is the perfect example of something that should be keto-friendly but is far from it. The label displays a simple chocolate hazelnut spread, but the ingredients list reveals a different story: Nutella’s primary ingredient is sugar. Although there are some sugar-free Nutella-like products, they rarely match what I can make at home. In fact, my homemade keto Nutella is so good that I had to share the recipe with everyone. With just five ingredients — most of which are commonplace in ...

Keto Condensed Milk

Keto Condensed Milk

Life is better, and sweeter, with condensed milk! Imagine what you can make with it: flan, custard, dulce de leche - the possibilities are endless! Trust me, it’s as good as the real thing. I used half and half of allulose and erythritol. You may adjust the sweetness according to your preference. Yields 30 servings of Keto Condensed Milk. The Preparation 433 grams heavy whipping cream, about 15 ounces 28 grams salted butter, about 2 tablespoons 85 grams allulose, about 3 ...

Fire and Ice Pickles

Fire and Ice Pickles

Sweet, sour, spicy, and absolutely addicting. These pickles combine multiple layers of flavor into a simplistic pickle that you can add to almost any dish. Grill up a burger, some hotdogs, or just have them with a salad - adding these flavor packed pickles will surely brighten any dish. On a ketogenic diet, a little bit of crunch is never a bad thing, either. These little guys will not only add flavor, but they will add a great texture to almost anything you put them with. The sweetness ...

5 Minute Keto Pesto

5 Minute Keto Pesto

Typically pesto is a very simple recipe of basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and olive oil. Over the years people have added more and more ingredients to this classic recipe in order to adapt to tastes and preferences.  My personal addition is the tomato paste. I felt like the original version of this recipe was slightly bitter with the basil and pine nuts competing for top flavor.  A touch of tomato paste adds some acidity, sweetness, and cuts back on the bitterness. On keto, ...

5 Minute Keto Raspberry Vinaigrette

5 Minute Keto Raspberry Vinaigrette

We went out for lunch recently and had a salad that came with a raspberry vinaigrette. Of course knowing it would be laden with sugar, I made sure I got it on the side to confirm my suspicions. When the salad came to the table, I dipped my finger in the dressing to give it a taste - and not surprisingly found it ridiculously sweet. The flavor, though, was amazing. Once we got home, we knew exactly what we needed to do. Recreate this vinaigrette without the carbs and sugar - so we could ...

Low Carb Blackberry Chipotle Jam

Low Carb Blackberry Chipotle Jam

When it comes to keto, jam definitely isn't the first thing that pops into your head. But, making some new sweet sauces can definitely be within your grasp. To top it all off, you can add plenty of fats to really bring the macros up to par. We use MCT Oil here because of the liquid properties that it has. When you store the jam in the fridge, it will continue to stay as a sauce and not harden up (as it would if you used coconut oil). These's two main flavor components that I'd describe ...

Keto 5 Minute Caesar Dressing

Keto 5 Minute Caesar Dressing

I frequently get asked the question "How do I eat more fat?" While in a perfect world, you can eat globs of coconut oil off a spoon, it's just not that attractive of an offer to most ketoers out there. Instead, you can create a keto salad dressing, pack it on top of a salad full of greens (micronutrient filled), and enjoy to your hearts content! Instead of worrying about how many carbs a dressing has, or which to choose from - you could make your own in just about the same amount of time. ...

Homemade Sambal

Homemade Sambal

Sambal is a sauce or condiment typically made from chili peppers and combined with secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, garlic, ginger, scallion, sugar, and vinegar. Tamarind can also be seen commonly added to sambal to make variations on the condiment. I wanted to keep it simple and prepare a very easy sambal that you can make at home but also re-create an authentic and real taste. Boiling and then blending the dried chilies make a great basic chili paste which can be used in frying ...

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

It's that time of year when every recipe seems to have hints of pumpkin or squash in them. Well, I'm going to be no different and going to be posting quite a large array of pumpkin based recipes for fall season! While I do love pumpkin, I try to use as little as possible for the carb counts to stay low. To keep the flavors of fall bursting through whatever I make, I tend to accent a lot of my recipes with this homemade pumpkin pie spice - the perfect combination of flavors to really keep your ...
