Keto Coleslaw Recipe

The Best Keto Coleslaw Recipe

In the hot summer months, I just love the creamy, crunchy, tanginess of chilled 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?

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?

Creamy with the perfect balance of tanginess to sweetness. This Keto Coleslaw Recipe reminds me of the slaw my great-grandma used to make...minus the sugar of course!

The Low Down On The Carb Count In 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 recipe turning up in your regular keto meal planning rotation!
