Since the keto diet is becoming more and more popular, there are low carb companies that are making sugar free, keto approved chocolates. Always check the label though to make sure they are low in carbs and sugar free or close to sugar free as possible.

My favorite keto chocolate company is ChocZero. For this sugar-free chocolate covered strawberry recipe, I used their line of chocolate baking chips. They have dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate.

ChocZero melts easily in the microwave or using a double boiler. It is not only sugar free but also sugar alcohol free. Sometimes sugar alcohols can cause an upset stomach so this is a great option if you are trying to avoid them.

Another option is to buy a dark chocolate bar at the grocery store. Try to find one that is 85% cacao or higher. Dark chocolate bars tend to contain less sugar and carbs than milk chocolate.

Size doesn’t matter when it comes to picking a sweet, ripe strawberry. What determines how sweet a strawberry is depends on how long it ripened on the berry plant. Strawberries also don’t continue to ripen after they are plucked like other fruits do.

The best way to check if a strawberry is ripe is to taste them. If you are shopping at a farmer’s market, you can probably taste the berries before you buy them. If you can’t taste the strawberries beforehand. Look for a vibrant red berry with green stems. If the berries look mushy or have brownish green stems, avoid those.
