This Keto Caramel Syrup is just the thing for creating indulgent drinks such as a Keto Caramel Macchiato. It's amazing drizzled over some keto ice cream or my infamous 'quick' Keto Cheesecake dessert.
This syrup is quick and easy to make and stores in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for a few weeks.
The best thing about this syrup is that it only thickens slightly in the refrigerator, making it perfect for whipping up drinks and drizzling over desserts.
It's a great topping for treats such as keto ice cream on top of a fudgy keto brownie with a drizzle of low carb caramel syrup. Mmmmmmmm.

If you watch the video, you'll notice I was experimenting with using a candy thermometer. I found that this step isn't necessary. So, I've omitted it in the instructions.

Ingredients for Keto Caramel Syrup
Here are a few ingredients you'll need to make this keto caramel syrup and start pouring keto caramel on everything!
- Liquid Stevia Drops

Our sugar substitute of choice is BochaSweet and there's good reason for this!
BochaSweet is extracted from the Kabocha pumpkin which has been a staple in the Japanese diet for centuries. Consuming BochaSweet on a daily basis helps to support longevity and supports healthy blood sugar levels.
Even better? It tastes almost exactly like real sugar. There's no thin flavor or metallic aftertaste. I think most of us are looking for something that tastes amazing because only a full, satisfying taste is going to work over the long-term.
So, if we are going to go to all the work to make these keto parfaits so we can please our tastebuds AND stick to our keto diet. Well, we want the result to taste GOOD not... just 'meh' and unsatisfying. For this reason plus the health benefits, we reach for BochaSweet every time.
