I love this Homemade Chocolate Syrup made with Swerve. This is going to be one of my guilty pleasures. It’s so easy that it only took me 15 minutes to make, start to finish.

Keto Friendly Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Please note: We do not follow a strict Keto diet. I may offer shortcuts and tips for those on a busy schedule.


The holidays came and went and so did my diet. If you remember, my family and I went on the Keto diet before the holidays. We all lost weight and my husband just felt better in general. However I noticed that both my hair and eye brows had thinned due to the lack of vitamins — and I hate taking pills.

New Year’s Goals

So after the holidays we knew we wanted to get back on the band wagon but we wanted to try something different.  My husband decided that he wanted to cut out all processed sugar and foods but still be able to eat our fruits and veggies as God had intended us to eat.

We are doing lower carbs then we would typically eat when we weren’t on our diet. Sort of a 30 day cleanse from all of that holiday eating. If anything Keto has really opened our eyes about our eating habits.

Let’s face it, I LOVE FOOD, maybe a little too much. I found that I got very bored with the food we were eating on Keto but we LOVED the way we felt.

I also found myself really stressing over being really strict. The one thing I want to stress is….. It’s OK to treat yourself every great once in awhile. The key is to not over indulge. They say the number one reason people fail on diets is because they deprive themselves. People are so strict that when they finally do decide to treat themselves they over indulge.

Why Keto Chocolate Syrup?

So where does this Homemade Chocolate Syrup recipe come into play? Well I am trying to replace my soda intake with coffee and tea. I love Starbucks, but let’s face it, it’s expensive. We tried sugar free coffee syrups that you buy in the store and I JUST… CAN’T… DO… IT! The aftertaste it gives my coffee. During the Holidays I over indulged on Peppermint Mochas at Starbucks full of sugar of course. I wanted to figure out a way to make them at home but I wanted it to TASTE GOOD!

Make It:

So I started playing with the idea of making my own Chocolate Syrup. I thought to myself, it can’t be that hard right? After playing with the ingredients and coming up with the right consistency and using my Swerve sweetener, I finally came up with the perfect recipe using unsweetened cocoa powder.

I’ve written the recipe out with a list of ingredients but I wanted to also give a few helpful tips as well. It’s very important during the heating process that you stir constantly so that your chocolate doesn’t burn. I also wanted to mention that we used a full 1/2 tsp of salt but if you find that it’s to salty for you or you need to cut back on the salt , try using 1/4 tsp.  You can also substitute the Kosher salt for Pink Himalayan. Pink Himalayan salt is usually a little stronger so you may need to use less.

Homemade Chocolate Sauce Coffee

Like I said I use this Homemade Chocolate Syrup in my coffee with a little bit of PURE Peppermint Oil for my Peppermint Mochas. I use my Young Living Oil but beware because this oil is pure and not water soluble, the oil can be quite potent to your nose hairs as you drink it! LOL!!!!!!   

I love it because it helps clear out my sinuses as well but some people may not be used to it. You could always just use peppermint extract from the store. Personally I just love the taste of pure peppermint. This Homemade Chocolate Syrup would also be great to drizzle over ice cream or your favorite dessert.
