Low Carb Ginger Syrup – Sugar Free



Since I made this low carb ginger syrup for the sugar free Moscow Mules recipe I posted a couple of weeks ago, I have used it in so many delicious ways that I thought it deserved its own post!

This ginger syrup isn’t just delicious and versatile, it’s also good for you. Ginger has potent anti-inflammatory properties and also boosts the immune system – vital during cold and flu season especially! This syrup has a super concentrated ginger flavor and with that comes all of those health benefits as well!

Sounds like a win/win to me!

Even if you don’t use this low carb ginger syrup to make the moscow mules, or any of the other suggestions in this post – you simply have to try it in some hot or iced tea! I have been putting a couple of tablespoons of this syrup in my nightly chai tea or pumpkin spice tea and I’m absolutely ADDICTED to it.

It adds sweetness and a gingery punch that makes it so much tastier than when I drink my tea plain!

You can use this syrup in place of minced ginger to add intense ginger flavor to soups and curries too! And because it’s super concentrated and already strained, you will get even more ginger flavor but without those woody ginger bits in your broth!

Finally, you can use this low carb ginger syrup as an extract in cakes, breads, cookies and even frostings to bring a punch of ginger to almost any baked good or dessert.

I’ve already jotted down some concepts to try out next time I feel like baking – and don’t worry, I’ll share the delicious results with you as soon as I perfect them!

Just be sure to let us know what you come up with so we can try it too!
