Coulis just means a thin fruit or vegetable puree, used as a sauce.
It’s made so quickly and keeps in the fridge for ages, if it lasts that long in yours. It never lasts in mine.
See below for some great ideas on how to use this tasty Keto berry sauce – the options are endless!
Ingredients for Keto Berry Coulis
This recipe is so versatile because you can dial up and down the sweetness and tartness to your taste. Adjust the sweetness and berries used depending what you are serving it with.
You will need:
- Mixed berries, or berry of your choice
- Lemon juice
Yep thats it! Just 3 ingredients!
As always, using the highest quality ingredients is super important. With a simple recipe like this Keto Berry sauce, the quality of the ingredients is what makes it delicious.
Substitutions and Ingredient tips
- Fresh and in season is best, but frozen works just as well.
- I like to use a mix of berries as that’s what I usually have in my freezer. This gives it a lovely rich colour that works well with quite sweet dishes. If you wanted a sweeter Keto berry coulis, stick with strawberries and raspberries.
Sweetener – Xylitol
I pretty much always use xylitol in my Keto cooking. Here;s the top reasons;
- It acts like sugar – doesn’t get that weird cooling effect like stevia and erythritol
- it caramelises nicely
- it doesn’t crystalise the next day when left in the fridge, pretty important for this recipe!
- Remember – xylitol is poisonous to dogs.
Fresh is best as always, but I always have a squeezey container of lemon juice in my fridge in case I don’t have any fresh lemons on hand.
The Keto Berry Coulis recipe uses 1/2 – 1 tablespoon, depending on how tart/sour you like your sweets! I use the full tablespoon, but I LOVE all things lemon.
You could also use lime juice, especially with raspberries as they go together so well!
Tips for making Keto Berry Coulis
This is a super simple, forgiving recipe. Below are a couple of tips.
- If using frozen berries, let them defrost. Otherwise, the time on the stove will be close to double (but still quick, around 18- 20 minutes
- You have three options to serve the Coulis: 1. Strain it for a silky smooth, runny sauce. 2: Leave it completely chunky if you like the texture. 3: blend it in a food processor/blender to keep the seeds but remove the chunks
- As the fruit breaks down, you can help it along by mashing it with a fork.
- If you decide to strain it, keep that delicious fruit pulp! Stir in a couple of tablespoons of chia seeds and refrigerate for an amazing Keto Berry Jam.
- Keep in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
- Freezer: Pour into ice cube trays and freeze, then pop out and keep in a resealable bag. Great to keep on hand for when you’re craving something extra!
