HOMEMADE SUGAR FREE KETO SPRINKLES
Homemade Sugar Free Keto Sprinkles have been on my list for as long as I can remember.
Until now, every time we have made some cupcakes or cookies for holidays, we have made everything low carb except the sprinkles. I used to buy those little tiny balls and only put few pieces, so all the cookies or cupcakes gets that beautiful end touch to them.
Well, as we all first need to approve our food with the look of it, that is the most important point and it is the first sign, where we decided if we like it or not. And with our kids, this is 100% true. If they like the look, they will most probably have a try at them. But if it does not look nice, they do not even bother to try them.
But now, not anymore. All the deco from our previous life goes into the dustbin. Well, maybe I will keep them in the box, so if anyone wants, do let me know. And we do have lots of them. Different shapes, colors you name it.
First time I have seen those sprinkles ideas by using shredded coconut, was from OMG Keto Yum.
They were so beautiful, that I have decided to give it a try and make one myself. You could use natural colorings, which would be the easiest and fastest way. Or you could go one more step and use your own ingredients to dye them.
One point when using the Coconut Flakes I have experienced:
Make sure you do get the flakes which are a bit thicker, and the end result is much nicer. I have also used completely shredded coconut, but that gives you more of a colored powder. Which at the end could be used as well on cookies for example.
But as I am always ready and fully excited about all the experiments I have made a decision to go fully natural. Since I have already made natural coloring with our Rainbow Chia Pudding and Sugar-Free Gummy Bears, I have decided to give it a try. And those results are really outstanding. With Curcuma or Turmeric for example, I have made 2 colors. Little Curcuma turns them into lovely Yellow. More Curcuma you use and you get a beautiful Orange Halloween color.
Now for the colors:
Red, Pink and Purple, I have used it the same way as with our Rainbow Low Carb Chia Pudding, where I have boiled frozen berries until most of the liquid evaporates. Then add drop by drop into a bowl of white Coconut flakes. If you do like the color, but it is a bit thick, do not worry to add few drops of water, which will spread the color evenly. In the end, they are going to the oven for drying.
Yellow and Orange, I have used Curcuma And as already mentioned. Just mix the powder with a little bit of water and add that into the coconut flakes. Adding few drops results in a lovely bright yellow color and a bit more colors it into a lovely Orange.
For a Green Color, You can use either Spirulina or Matcha Tea Powder, which comes a bit darker green. Or you can go for boiling Spinach leaves in a tiny amount of water to get a brighter green color.
For a Turquoise color, I really had to do some research and found a great idea from Whole New Mum. where she wrote a whole blog about it. What a perfect tip.
Tip for Homemade Sugar Free Keto Sprinkles:
Once you will be coloring, do not worry if the Coconuts area bit wet. I have come up with the idea of drying them in the oven (instead of letting them dry naturally) into a lovely (even better than before) crunchy consistency, which my daughter said, is much much tastier than just shredded Coconut.
I have placed each color into a small glass container to use in the future. But I have also made 2 different mixed colors bottles. One Mixture is for Halloween, where you mix only the orange, purple and red colors. And then I have made another lighter version for Christmas, where I have added all the colors together plus white original shredded Coconut. I will still make a third mix for Easter, where I will probably only mix, light colors like yellow, turquoise, white and pink. And the 4th mixture for Valentines with only red, pink and white Sprinkles. O my. I can not wait for all of the baking now.
To make it a bit more clear also for me in the future here it goes:
A mixture of Homemade Sugar Free Keto Sprinkles colors:
- Halloween: Orange, Purple, Red
- Christmas: Red, Green, White
- Easter: Yellow, Turquoise, White, Pink
- Valentines: Red, Pink, White
Any other holidays? O my. I am sure there are plenty. Like baby girl shower, baby boy shower, weddings, hen parties, all of the birthday parties, special occasion parties, company events, where you can use the colors of your logos. Imagination is long.
I have already used them on our Christmas Tree Cupcakes, but more to come. And once you make them, they should stay for a long time.
I do hope you liked the idea and here goes the full recipe.
