Why You Will Love This Recipe

Quick and Easy – This recipe couldn’t be simpler, and is ready in just a few minutes. It is dairy free and delicious!

Keto-Pantry Ingredients – Nothing other than basic keto pantry ingredients required!

It’s dairy free! I constantly get asked for more dairy free keto recipes. This delicious low carb sauce has no butter or cream. You can add it if you want but it doesn’t need it. If you would like extra fats use extra dripping from turkey, chicken, beef etc.

Versatile – Use whichever broth you prefer; or match it to the meal you will add the gravy to enhance the depth of flavour. By increasing or decreasing the thickening agent, you get the thickness you prefer as well!

Thermomix Friendly – making my low carb gravy in the Thermomix is super easy too, and is a great basic recipe to add to my collection of keto Thermomix recipes.

The Ingredients

Keep reading for more details on the ingredients, substitutes and instructions on how to make my Easy Ketogenic Gravy.

There are just 2 simple ingredients you will need:

Broth – You can use any broth you prefer; my bone broth makes a delicious gravy!

Glucomannan powder or xanthan gum – these keto friendly thickening agents will usually be part of your keto pantry staples. Both help to thicken gravy. Seeing we don’t eat cornstarch either of these ingredients will thicken without adding extra carbs.

Collagen is added as an optional extra. I like how it helps to thicken naturally and adds an almost creamy texture to the gravy.

How To Make Easy Keto Gravy

You can choose to make the gravy in a saucepan on a stove top, or in a Thermomix, Magimix or similar thermal-cooker.

Chef’s Tip:

Keep whisking continuously if making this in a saucepan, and don’t leave the gravy unattended while on the heat. It helps to keep the consistency smooth if you are whisking and taking note of the thickening.

Can I made a larger batch of Easy Keto Gravy?

This recipe is suitable to be made in a larger batch if preferred. You can double the recipe if you have a large family.

How long can I store the gravy?

The gravy can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can also freeze it, in individual portions if preferred.

Is gravy low carb?

I guess it depends on what you think is low carb. Most packet regular gravies are around 3-5g net cabrs per serve. They do however have lots of additives and thickeners that are not considered keto friendly by most.

How do you make keto gravy without xanthan gum?

This recipe does give you the optionof glucomannan powder. It is my preferred way to thicken. Other thickeners can also include gelatin (which works well) and by adding more collagen powder as well. You can reduce the gravy and or add mashed vegetable or cream to thicken it.

  • Add all the ingredients into the pan over moderate heat. Cook stirring until the gravy thickens. Remove from heat once the gravy has thickened. Season to taste and serve.

  • Alternative cooking method. If you have prepared a roast, use the pan and drippings for extra flavour. Simply remove the roast from the pan and place the pan over moderate heat. Add all the ingredients to the pan and cook stirring until thickened. Make sure you use a spatula to scrape all the good stuff off the bottom of the pan into the gravy.


Always use xanthan gum sparingly as it can leave a slimy mouth feel. If the gravy is slimy simply add more broth.
Glucomannan powder is great to use as a thickener but is not yet readily available in our local grocery stores.
For a vegetarian and keto vegan version omit the collagen and use a vegetable broth.

Best cooked and served as needed
To reheat, cook in a small pan over low heat whisking until warmed through.
