Healthy Homemade Sugar Free Raspberry Syrup
This Healthy Homemade Sugar Free Raspberry Syrup has all the flavor of raspberries but in liquid form! This low-calorie syrup contains no high fructose corn syrup, granulated sugar, or artificial food coloring, just pure raspberry goodness. Perfect on oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, smoothies and more!
This Sugar Free Raspberry Syrup is similar to my Strawberry Syrup, but with an added hint of tartness.
I find raspberries to have a sharper flavor than strawberries. Of course, it all really depends on the batch you get. Sometimes they will be super sweet and delicious, and other times they will be sour and slightly acidic. But with this syrup, it’s mostly sweet 😉
Instead of sweetening this syrup with refined-to-the-bone white sugar, genetically modified high fructose corn syrup or artificial aspartame, I used all-natural stevia. Instead of using artificial food dyes (that may be linked to hyperactivity, ADHD, tumors, cancer… the list goes on), I used all-natural, plant-based food coloring.
Unlike storebought syrups, this Homemade Sugar Free Raspberry Syrup doesn’t contain any preservatives.
And unlike other homemade syrups, this doesn’t require any cooking (so you don’t need a candy thermometer)! Just whisk together the ingredients, refrigerate, and then it’s time to pour away!
Healthy Sugar-Free Raspberry Syrup
- 1⅔ cups Water
- 1 tbs Natural Raspberry Flavor
- 4 drops Lemon Flavor
- Natural Red Food Coloring
- 1 cup Stevia in the Raw or 1 tsp Stevia Extract
- ⅛ tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Xanthan Gum
- Add all of the ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth and even. Give it a taste and add more stevia/flavoring if you like.
- Pour into serving bottles and refrigerate to store.
If I’m in the mood for dessert (ehem, always, ehem), I want to add flavor and sweetness the natural and healthy way… it’s just a bonus that this syrup is low in calories 😉
Enough talk. Let’s watch this syrup in action!
Perfect for adding both tart and sweet flavors to your breakfasts, snacks, drinks and desserts. Enjoy!
With love and good eats,
This syrup looks amazing! I love raspberries 1,257 times more than strawberries so I reeeeeally want to make this! I think it might just happen that when I order more erythritol (soon!) the fruit flavors might just happen to end up in my cart too…. if ya know what I mean *wink wink* 😀
Thanks Emily!! Hahaha, I’m glad you like raspberries 1,257x better than strawberries 😉
I hope you like the recipe!
awesome idea! love how guilt free the recipe is..
Thalia @ Butter and Brioche-
Thanks so much Thalia! I hope you like the recipe 🙂
Can’t wait to try this…just one question…how long does the syrup keep in the refrigerator?
If it’s stored in an airtight container in the fridge, it should last at least a couple of weeks… maybe 1 month?
Great, thanks! 🙂
Yeah, I have a bit of a problem with what you call healthy.
“Unlike storebought syrups, this homemade version doesn’t contain any preservatives. And unlike other homemade syrups, this doesn’t require any cooking” – you forgot to add to that: “it also doesn’t contain any fruit, nor real food ingredients” so how is this healthier? And, in reality Xanthan Gum is a sugar, it’s gmo-corn and it can cause digestive issues with certain people, corn is also a grain. Xanthan Gum is a bad bacteria which is why it causes digestive issues because it’s obviously a bacteria that shouldn’t be allowed into the gut. This homemade… whatever you call it, ain’t healthy as it contains nothing that’s beneficial, it’s all basically artificial, right down to the stevia extract, unless it were ground up stevia leafs, then it would be a tad beneficial, but not by much.
Just ’cause the FDA lists some or most of these ingredients as non-hazardous to people’s health, doesn’t make them healthy. You’re better off just boiling fresh or frozen fruit in a pot, as cooking the fruit would be more beneficial than… this.
Hi Heather! That’s fine, everyone’s idea of “healthy” is different. Just an FYI though, there is such a thing as non-GMO xanthan gum (not all is made from corn either). And just like any food, xanthan gum might not agree with some people. Personally, I’m fine with it, and so is everybody I know. And, nothing in this recipe is artificial — all the ingredients are natural and/or organic.
Unlike cooked fruit made into a syrup, this sugar-free syrup is safe for diabetics and people who may follow a ketogenic diet 🙂
Hi, Jess! I know you might have posted this a while ago, but I have a question. Would it ruin the syrup’s texture/flavor to be blended? I was thinking about blending it with Greek yogurt (triple zero!), frozen bananas, and milk for some “nice cream.” I thought it would be SUPERBLY delicious to have different flavors for your different flavors of syrup (orange, blueberry, strawberry, etc.!)
Thanks! I love this blog!
The syrup won’t be ruined by being blended! Your nice cream recipe sounds soooooooo amazing I’m drooling! 😀
Oh, I just realized you had a CINNAMON ROLL SYRUP!!! Cinnamon roll ice cream + healthy? No way – except yes way! That is what you do here a DWB!
That sounds super super goood.
It’s pretty amazing I must say 🙂
I hope you love it and much as I do!
Jessica, can you freeze the syrup in small containers to extend the shelf life? I would love to have this when I make the Keto cream cheese pancakes. Thank you!
I’ve never tried freezing this so I can’t be sure. Feel free to test it out though! 🙂
Hi Jess, I am curious if this syrup works in coffee. I spend so much on the Sugar Free Raspberry coffee syrups. I would love to be able to make it myself! 🙂
I haven’t tried it so I can’t be sure. I don’t think it would work in a hot beverage, but I know it works in yogurt, oatmeal, and ice cream!! 🙂
I’m sorry you were trolled. While Heather may have presented some valid points, you seemed to clarify with your counterpoints. Heather could have been more civil in her delivery and more open to discussion.
I seem to be the only male responding, and I’m here because I’m looking for raspberry syrup that is junk-free to use in my organic black coffee. While I love the taste of the sugar-free, NOT sucralose-free “stuff” from that doughnut place (abbreviated DD), I’d love to replicate the flavor without the junk, I have not found anything similar. I use organic stevia to enhance any flavored coffee I might try. I’m a black coffee purist, AND I love raspberries. *grin*
Your version “looks” and seems delicious, although I’d like to know why you believe your product would NOT be appropriate in hot drinks. Perhaps a chicken recipe, too?
