Ingredients and Variations

Mushrooms – Be sure to sweat the mushrooms until they’re dry to intensify the nutty, woodsy flavor of the mushrooms.

Gravy Base – Cream gives keto gravy its smooth consistency (and healthy fats), but you can also use carb-friendly almond or cashew milk for a thinner gravy.

Seasonings – Use the homemade chicken seasonings, or DIY your own garlic and herb or Italian blend.

Xanthan Gum – Xanthan gum is fermented sucrose with bacteria and is used as a thickening agent and a binder instead of almond or coconut flour. It’s easy to find in any health food store, or it can be ordered online. Guar gum should work too.

Variations – Add extra sliced mushrooms to the recipe for a thicker, heartier gravy, or mix in some ground pork to make a country-style gravy.

How to Make Keto Gravy

Homemade mushroom gravy is as easy to make as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Cook mushrooms in butter and seasonings.
  2. Whisk broth, water, and xanthan gum until smooth. Pour into mushroom mixture and bring to a boil.
  3. Simmer for 5 minutes, stir in cream, and season before serving.

Serving Keto Gravy

Make brunch-style keto biscuits and sausage gravy, smother it over low carb Philly cheesesteaks, or use it as a quick sauce for low carb beef stroganoff. Or have it alongside a roasted chicken with cauliflower mash!

Top air-fried daikon fries with fresh cheese curds and then smother them in keto gravy for a low-carb version of homemade poutine!

Tips for the Best Gravy!

Mix in a little Kitchen Bouquet to get that deep brown, gravy color, but be aware it will add a few carbs.

If xanthan gum isn’t available, a cornstarch slurry can be made with the same amounts as the xanthan gum, but it will also add a few carbs.

Author Holly


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms sliced, about 3 ounces
  • ¾ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 2.6 cups chicken or turkey broth condensed, low sodium, 10.5 ounce can
  • cup water
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream


  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add in mushrooms, onion powder, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. Cook 4-5 minutes until the mushrooms release their liquid.
  • In a medium bowl whisk broth, water and xanthan gum. You may have a few lumps, this is ok.
  • Add the broth mixture to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and let cook 5 minutes. Stir in heavy cream and season with salt & pepper to taste.


  • Cornstarch slurry can be used in place of xanthan gum – but keep in mind it will add a few carbs to the recipe. Combine equal parts cornstarch and water, then whisk into the simmering broth.
  • For a richer brown color, 1/8 tsp of Kitchen Bouquet can be added but just be aware that it will also add a few carbs to the recipe.
