This Easy Blender Ketchup is Made with No Sugar Added! It's quick and easy, gluten free and low carb!
Do you love ketchup? Do your kids love ketchup? You can stop buying it from now on and make a healthier, better for you, version at home, EASILY!!
This recipe makes a lot so you won't need to make it often. My younger two children who are quite picky have given it a stamp of approval! I love that it has no high fructose corn syrup!
It's just the right texture and as smooth and luscious as what the kiddies are used to. You can use honey if you prefer it over my sugar free sweetener of choice. I'd say ½ a cup if you think the family needs it as sweet as store bought ketchup. With the amount I used my kids liked it this way just fine, but it's definitely not as sweet as bottled ketchup.
I think once you taste it, you'll never go back to buying any store bought ketchup again!
Notes on Sweetener:
- You could substitute maple syrup for honey.
- UPDATE: I've made this in the blender without cooking anything on the stove but I eliminated the fresh onion and used some dried minced instead. Using the blender and you can make this faster anytime you want. You can certainly still make it on the stove and I do think it provides a better mingling of flavors but in the blender is great for when you run out and have no time!
