Making the perfect keto hot fudge sauce has a lot to do with high quality ingredients and with the perfect keto sweetener — Bocha Sweet.
What Substitutions Will Work?
Keto Sweetener Substitutions
If you haven’t already tried Bocha Sweet, I highly recommend you do.
It’s a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the Kabocha pumpkin.
Most alternative sweeteners will work in this recipe. You can use Monk Fruit Sweetener, Xylitol or a blend like Swerve.
I have not tested this recipe using liquid stevia because I’m not confident of the results without the bulk of some kind of granulated sugar substitute.
