Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

I am a self proclaimed sugar free caramel queen. This version I would easily say is the best keto caramel recipe I have made to date!

If you have noticed I do have a bit of love for caramel. I use it in so many ways in my cooking both sweet and savoury. This recipe is my version of a keto dulce de leche. With the addition of Sukrin Gold, in the form of sweetener and fibre syrup, this recipe is a one pot condensed milk and caramel recipe.

Sugar-free Caramel Ingredients

In Australia our choices are slim when it comes to brown sugar or golden syrup substitutes. To be honest Sukrin Australia has been a godsend for my baking and keto confectionary. As for substitutes currently for this particular recipe the Sukrin Gold syrup has no substitutes. For our Northern Hemisphere neighbours you can use products like Vita Fibre Syrup, Fibre Yum or Choc Zero Caramel Syrup.

Salt Flakes – salt is important to a caramel, it helps thicken it. I use a couple of big pinches of salt flakes. It is worth noting that iodised salt is far more concentrated than salt flakes so use less if that is all you have.

Butter – use grass fed local butter that is salted. Again that salt helps give the caramel a thick delicious consistency.

How to make Sugar-free Caramel

Below is a video to see how I make it in the Thermomix® which is as simple as all the ingredients into the bowl and cook. For those of you without a Thermomix® you can just as easily make this on the stove. Whisk all the ingredients over medium heat until the caramel thickens.

Sugar Free Caramel | How to make Keto Caramel

Keto or sugar free caramel can be made in a multitude of ways and if you had noticed I do make a lot of it. Maybe it has to do with the fact that my all-time favourite sweet as a kid would have been a caramel tart or anything that had caramel in it for that matter.

    This is seriously delicious. AND so easy in the Thermomix – chuck everything in and 20 minutes later you can be eating this off a spoon… You have to try it. I’m looking forward to adding some chocolate swirls.
