Our Favorite Keto Sugar Substitutes and Why


Keto sugar substitutes make it possible to enjoy some sweet foods while still staying in ketosis. This high fat, low carbohydrate diet is popular for weight loss short term and over time. But the keto diet also means saying goodbye to sweet treats with sugar— That’s why keto sugar substitutes are common in some baked goods and treats!


Keto Sugar Substitutes

When following the keto diet, sweets with keto sugar substitutes can be tasty and satisfying. You may not see many sweet goods made with keto-friendly ingredients in stores. It’s easy enough to bake up your own treats at home with other options, though! Some of FreezerFit’s keto recipes utilize keto sugar substitutes like erythritol or monk fruit. You can find keto replacements in different varieties like robust ‘brown sugar’ flavored Swerve, which is erythritol. Read on for some more of our favorite keto sugar substitutes!

Erythritol or Swerve

Erythritol is a calorie-less sweetener that is often referred to by the popular brand name, Swerve. You can find Swerve in many of FreezerFit’s keto desserts, like Keto Dark Chocolate Cake.

Monk Fruit

Monk fruit is a common sweetener that’s derived from a fruit native to Asia. It’s calorie free and dried into a powder that can be used instead of sugar in many baked goods. Try monk fruit powder in FreezerFit’s Keto Lemon Cheesecake.


From the stevia plant, this keto sugar substitute may be one of the most well known sugarless sweeteners. Like most of these sweeteners, it’s mostly tasteless and much sweeter than common table sugar. FreezerFit’s Keto Pumpkin Pie works well with either stevia or Swerve!


Allulose is found in fruit like figs, raisins, and jackfruit. The sweetener is low carb and, like other keto sugar substitutes, shouldn’t affect blood sugar. Both liquid syrup and powdered allulose are often sold in stores.


What is Keto?

Keto sugar substitutes can be helpful for many diets, but what is keto? Those avoiding sugar may find the diet useful because keto steers clear of sugar. The ketogenic diet involves foods that are high in fat and low in carbs. Plus some protein, this forces the body away from using sugar as fuel. Rather, the body relies on ketones as energy and to break down fat. The keto diet can be very popular for people trying to lose weight or otherwise avoid sugar and carbs. For much more information on the keto diet, check out this summary by Eat Right or this review by Harvard’s Nutrition Source.

Keto recipes don’t have to be complicated or involve unique, hard-to-find ingredients! Rather, keto food focuses on unsaturated fats, low-carb vegetables, and meat and seafood. Keto sweeteners are easy to find at most grocery stores and markets. And in FreezerFit’s keto recipes, you can often use your choice of sweetener like Swerve, monk fruit, or Stevia. You can also use a blend of several different sweeteners.


Keto Frozen Meals

Meal planning with keto frozen meals is a great way to get started on the keto diet! These meals can be prepared ahead of time and enjoyed when you’re short on time.
