Sugar-Free Apricot Sauce

Sugar-Free Apricot Sauce

This Sugar-Free Apricot Sauce is made with a few simple ingredients and can be prepared as a thick spread or as a pourable sauce. The sauce can be used as a glaze on cakes or poured over ice cream. The thicker version is delicious as a jam on grain-free English muffins or spread in a thin layer in cakes. We even spiced it up and used it as a glaze for a pork tenderloin roast.

While there is no added sugar (Swerve and Lakanto have no glycemic index hit), dried apricots contain a fair amount of natural sugars and, like all sweet things, should be consumed in moderation.

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Add Lakanto, Swerve, water, and chopped apricots to a medium sauce pan with a heavy bottom and stir to combine. 
  2. Bring to a rolling boil, over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until apricots are fall-apart tender and liquid reduces to barely cover the apricots 9the apricots should be peeking out of the liquid), about 20-30 minutes. 
  3. Remove from heat and let sit 15-20 minutes to cool. 
  4. Use a slotted spoon to transfer apricots to a food processor. Pulse a few times to break the apricots up and slowly add reserved liquid until desired consistency is achieved. Keep it thicker and chunky for a spread or cake filling, and smoother with more liquid for a pourable sauce.
  5. If preparing as a filling or glaze for cake, add vanilla extract while pulsing. Start with 1/2 teaspoon, taste, and add more if necessary. 

Notes

Refrigerate in an airtight container up to a week. 

Total time does not include cooling time.
