What would we do without chocolate? Really, I don't want to know... But, this is literally the best keto chocolate sauce I have ever had (or ANY chocolate sauce, for that matter). Period. And it's actually good for you (think loads of antioxidants)! It's also low-FODMAP, Paleo and dairy-free! Made with creamy coconut milk. Oooo-la-la!
So one evening, we were sitting down with a lovely dessert of berries, topped with Low-Carb Whipped Cream and lemon flake salt. Total decadence, right? Not that that dessert needed anything else, but I was in the mood for something chocolate. So I figured that making a chocolate sauce would be a pretty quick thing to whip up!
Okay, so I did manage to just poke down the juicy berries with sweet, salted whipped cream (don't feel too sorry for me), but I still needed to follow up with that chocolate inspiration.
I had everything I needed, so I grabbed a small pot and went to it. I guessed at the measurements and tweaked them just tad. Within 10 minutes, the result was a creamy, silky, slightly salty, coconutty (is that a word?) pot of sheer chocolate pleasure. I could just sip it from a cup. I really ended up just standing over the stove dunking the spoon in - over... and over... and over... When you make this, you may end up doing the very same thing (it's okay!).
So I'm a big, big fan of raw cacao. In recipes that call for powdered unsweetened chocolate, I always use cacao in its place. It's one of nature's superfoods. It's full of antioxidants, flavonoids, iron, trace minerals and is a natural mood elevator. It boosts serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine - all neurotransmitters that make us feel all warm and fuzzy. Whip up a batch, grab some berries and bliss out with the best keto chocolate sauce ever (okay - my opinion!).

Silky Keto Chocolate Sauce - Healthy and Dairy-Free
- 13 ounces coconut milk (about 1 can - full fat)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt (or a good fleur de sel is best)
- ½ cup raw cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
- ¼ cup monk fruit sweetener (+ 1 tablespoon. Use sweetener of choice - see Notes)
- ¼ cup stevia (+ 1 tablespoon. Use sweetener of choice - see Notes)
- Add-in options below in the Notes
- Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan, over low heat.
- Keep whisking every few seconds while it heats.
- Cook just until it starts to boil slighty, then remove from heat.
Sweetener blendI like to use a 50/50 blend of stevia and monk fruit because the erythritol in monk fruit sweeteners can cause some digestive upset and it works great with stevia. If you do okay with erythritol or another sweetener, have at it!
Add-in optionsSubstitute the vanilla extract for another flavor, such as almond, mint or orange. Add a pinch of cinnamon (my favorite), masala, curry or black pepper (omit for low-FODMAP). Or just go nuts and add a tablespoon of peanut butter. It will be thick, though, so if you want it to stay 'saucey', you need to add a little bit more coconut milk. Or don't, and have yourself the best keto chocolate pudding ever!!! Seriously, try this. It's insane. Serve on top of your favorite dessert with a dollop of Low-Carb Whipped Cream.
