10 Keto Friendly Must Have Condiment Recipes

10 Keto Friendly Must Have Condiment Recipes

When you are trying to be mindful of your sugar intake it is pretty discouraging when you turn your favorite condiments over and look at the label. How does 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce have the same amount of sugar as a small DQ blizzard?? Yikes! When you start looking for sugars on an ingredient label you really start to realize how many of our foods have added sugar in them from pasta sauces to salsas. Making your own condiments might sound like a daunting task but as a busy working mom, I can assure you I don’t have a ton of extra time. Therefore, the recipes I create have a few ingredients, save me money, taste great, and have way less sugar. This is great for those following a keto or paleo diet, mom’s who are looking at reducing their kid’s sugar intake for mental and physical health, and those working at balancing their blood sugars.

I have 10 Keto Friendly Must Have Summer Condiment Recipes below to fill your pantry or fridge up. BBQ and patio season is no fun without a few fresh tasting condiments so I have you covered. I love hearing from you so leave me a comment below of which one is your favorite or if there is a condiment you love that you want me to “healthify” for you, just leave it in the comments below.

This is my classic slow-cooker ketchup recipe. It stores great! Swap out the dates in the recipe for 15 drops of liquid stevia or use monk fruit as a keto sweetener to taste. Click here for the full blog post.
