Lemon Sauce

If you are anything like me, when the first trays of summer berries appear in the store, you’re on them like bugs round a bug light.  While my favorite way to eat fresh berries will always be with whipped (or unwhipped, I don’t care) heavy cream, it’s lovely to have a keto option that tastes just as decadent and magical, but is more nutrient-dense and bursting with bright, lemony flavor. So I made you Lemon Sauce.

You can whip this luscious Lemon Sauce up in a New York minute – as long as you have some Keto Lemon Curd stashed in your ‘fridge.  It’s worth keeping some of that lemon curd goodness on hand just for this sauce.

This sauce can be tipped with abandon over any dessert that needs a sauce.  Or even one that doesn’t need a sauce, but you just want to pour sauce on, anyway.

It’s light, delicate and as thin and pourable as unwhipped heavy cream.  It would even make a wonderful alternative to syrup on your keto Vanilla Blueberry Pancakes.  Try it over a bowl of fresh, ripe, sliced peaches.  Mmmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm.  My infamous Chocolate Fudge Mug Cake? It would be fabulous drizzled over that.  Start with some berries and take it from there – where the amount of berries depends on where you are in your journey and what your goals are.  If you are early in the journey and have a long way to go then you might want to forego the berries and focus on those keto pancakes and that Chocolate Fudge Mug Cake.

But really, the world is your keto Lemon Sauce receptacle!

Top Recipe Tips

  • You can use any sweetener you like for this, and also adjust the amount of sweetener to taste.
  • Greek yogurt is thicker. You can also use regular yogurt but the sauce will be thinner.

  • Don’t. Just buy the correct ingredients and you, too, shall have a fabulous outcome!
  • Xylitol or allulose or erythritol are the sweeteners I recommend because they work very well. You can use any other sweetener you like, but I cannot guarantee the results if you choose to use something different. In low carb and keto baking sweeteners are generally not interchangeable if you want great results.

  • martynPrithee, why do choose non-fat Greek (strained) yoghurt in your lemon sauce?ReplyCancel

    • carrieMartyn – NF Greek Yogurt has the most protein in, so it makes the sauce SANEr. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel
