DIY Keto-Friendly Amaretto Recipe

Indulge in the rich, almond-flavored goodness of Amaretto without the guilt. This keto-friendly version is sweetened with Allulose, making it a perfect addition to your low-carb lifestyle. Whether you're crafting a cocktail or adding a splash to your coffee, this recipe ensures you can enjoy the classic taste of Amaretto while staying on track with your dietary goals.


- 2 cups water
- 1 cup Allulose
- 2 tablespoons almond extract
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup vodka (optional for a non-alcoholic version)
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional for thickening)


1. In a saucepan, combine water and Allulose. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the Allulose is completely dissolved.
2. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
3. Stir in almond extract, vanilla extract, and vodka (if using).
4. If a thicker consistency is desired, whisk in xanthan gum until well combined.
5. Transfer the mixture to a bottle or jar and store in the refrigerator.
6. Use as desired in cocktails, coffee, or desserts.

Alternative Sweeteners

While Allulose is a great keto-friendly sweetener, you can also experiment with other sugar substitutes to suit your taste and dietary needs. Erythritol, Stevia, and Monk fruit are popular alternatives that can be used in place of Allulose. Just be sure to adjust the quantities based on the sweetness level of your chosen substitute.
