In the hot summer months, I just love the creamy, crunchy, tanginess of chilled keto coleslaw.
Fortunately, making your own is very easy with the right ingredients and a little know-how. My secret ingredient in this recipe is a new super-food sweetener called Bocha Sweet.
It's a granulated sugar substitute made from the Kabocha Pumpkin. These super-food pumpkins have a high pentose content. It turns out that pentose is REALLY good for our body! Pentose can be metabolized as a pure source of cell energy.
Even Better? It works great in this keto coleslaw recipe.
PLUS…Unlike other artificial and alternative sweeteners–pentose provides energy WITHOUT requiring insulin as a delivery mechanism!!
Bocha Sweet is a unique alternative to sugar and other alternative sweeteners that is also GOOD for your body! Have your sweets guilt-free while knowing you are doing something good for yourself.
Isn't that sweet?
Your New Favorite Keto Coleslaw
Are you thinking the carb count of this keto coleslaw is too high?
The carbs in this side dish come from the cabbage and not the dressing.
The dressing by itself is approximately 98% fat, 1% carb and 1% protein.
Make sure you choose a sugar-free mayonnaise to keep added sugars as low as possible.
The majority of carbs from the cabbage are fiber — and the few added sugars found in cabbage should worry you too much.
Cabbage is a very healthy addition to your diet. Some would even call it a superfood! Overall, you can feel good about this keto coleslaw recipe turning up in your regular keto meal planning rotation!

Why Bocha Sweet?
Our sugar substitute of choice is Bocha Sweet and there's good reason for this!
Bocha Sweet is extracted from the Kabocha pumpkin which has been a staple in the Japanese diet for centuries. Consuming Bocha Sweet 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 Bocha Sweet every time.
