Raspberry Vinaigrette – Keto

Nutrition

Apr 09
Raspberry Vinaigrette

Ingredients (as always, as organic as possible):

½ cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons Celtic Sea Salt
¼ cup and 2 tablespoons water
1 or 2 cups of raspberries
1 cup  MCT Oil

This does require a sweetener. These two are Keto friendly. You can use them separately, but together we discovered (long before anyone else) that they counter each others’ after taste and actually taste like normal sugar. 

Separately use either:

5 tablespoons Swerve Confectionery Sweetener 
or
5 scoops Better Stevia
or together
3 tablespoons Swerve Confectionery Sweetener and 2 scoops Better Stevia

Optional: The amount of raspberries is totally up to you. We’ve found organic raspberries in 10 oz bags and have used the entire bag. Additionally, if you want a creamy dressing, adding between a quarter cup and half a cup of coconut milk powder is absolutely delicious, however, it does raise the carb count considerably.

Instructions:

Just mix in a blender. It’s delicious!

One Note on Swerve Confectionery Sweetener: Erythritol is a keto friendly sweetener, however, it does not dissolve well or easily. We used to recommend putting it into your blender and turning it into a powder. Well, that’s what Swerve Confectionery Sweetener is: Powdered Erythritol.

Editor’s Note: because you are health conscious, you have probably read about the problems with buying extra virgin olive oil; that most of the time you are being ripped off. This is why I can recommend getting your olive oil (and apple cider vinegar) from Braggs. They make quality products and you just cannot go wrong with them.

We prefer MCT Oil in this recipe (in every recipe) because it is Keto Perfect. Fat cells reject it, it must be burned up as extra energy, it keeps you in ketosis, it is anti-inflammatory, and the product we linked to comes from coconut oil, and not palm oils (the collection of which is destroying our planet). You can use, however, if you want, extra virgin olive oil (from the Braggs link above) or macadamia nut oil (which is also anti-inflammatory).
