Sugar Free Balsamic Glaze


This glaze (or reduction) is perfect drizzled over some mozzarella, grape tomatoes, and basil (hello caprese). Make it even more fun by making a salad on a stick using skewers. Balsamic glaze is also great drizzled over bruschetta, grilled veggies, margarita pizzas, and essentially any summer time fare like berries, goat cheese, crudite, etc!

  1. You know that a cup of balsamic vinegar has 38 grams of sugar, right? So if this recipe makes 25 servings, each serving would have 3 carbs. I don’t call that “sugar-free” when you’re limiting your carb intake to keto levels. And do you really limit yourself to what is 1/25th of the batch? How do you measure?

    • Heidi, this is a recipe for balsamic glaze, which is literally a drizzle over whatever you’re eating it with. We took a half tsp to drizzle over a caprese salad and it was more than enough. Our definition of sugar free means we are not adding any sugar to the recipe – if you’re looking for a low carb balsamic vinegar, here’s a good one. We eat 20g total carbs and most days we will stay under even 5g total carbs, so this recipe fits our lifestyle and many of the keto baes who eat to fit their macros. We list our ingredients out so those who want to include natural sugars in their diets can pick and choose. We know there are others who cannot afford to have any sugars due to medical conditions, so we try to include strict recipes on our page too.
