This sugar free ketchup recipe is keto and paleo approved, and is so easy to make. Just simmer all of the ketchup ingredients for 45 minutes, and you will have homemade ketchup.



  • 6 ounces organic tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 tablespoons monkfruit or sukrin gold brown sugar substitute
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon each onion & garlic powder
  • ¾ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon each ground cinnamon & cloves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a medium size pot and mix well. Bring to a slow simmer, place a lid on the pot, and cook for 30 minutes. Stir the ketchup every 5 minutes and give it a taste after 15 minutes. You may want more monk fruit to make it sweeter, or more vinegar, but trust me, the balance of flavors should be right. After 30 minutes, remove the lid and let cook another 15 minutes. The texture should be slightly looser than ketchup and will thicken after it cools. Carefully blend the ketchup using a hand blender or blender, this will whip some air into it and make the ketchup smooth.
  2. Transfer the ketchup to an airtight container, allow to cool, and store in the fridge for 3 weeks, or freeze for 6 months. Enjoy!
