Sugar Free Yum Yum Sauce

Sharing Is Caring

Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! Who doesn’t love hibachi steak houses? The one in our town used to be a go-to date night place for my husband and I. If I’m being totally honest with myself, I only wanted to go for the yum yum sauce and fried rice.  Let’s take a moment of silence for that delicious sauce…

Back to reality…

If you’ve never eaten or heard of yum yum sauce, let me fill you in. It is a creamy mayonnaise based dipping sauce commonly served at Japanese restaurants. It’s a little sweet and a little tangy. You can buy it in just about every major grocery store nowadays too.

The problem is that restaurant style yum yum sauce is FULL of sugar! Dreaded, evil, addicting sugar. No wonder it tastes so dang good! I’ve been trying to replicate a keto friendly version for months now! I finally #nailedit and just HAVE to share with y’all!

This recipe is super duper easy. Just mix it up, let it sit for a little bit (or don’t if you’re impatient like me), and it’s ready. One bowl. One whisk. And just a couple measuring spoons.

It pairs maginificently with my Cauliflower Fried Rice! I should know, I make it a couple times a month! 🙂


A few tips about this recipe:

  1. My sauce yielded approximately 24oz of sauce. 1 serving size is 2 tablespoons.-You can dial up or down the sriracha based on preference.
  2. If you use tomato paste instead of ketchup, you may want to add a little extra sweetener. Be sure to adjust your macros accordingly.
  3. Avocado oil mayo is my mayo of choice because it is the cleanest. It doesn’t have an soybean oil, corn syrup, or hydrogenated oil. If you use another brand of mayo, it can alter the carb count so double check your labels and recalculate your macros in a fitness app.
