Sweet Chilli Sauce

Sweet Chilli Sauce made with Truvia calorie-free sweetener. We love this sauce for BBQ's, for dipping prawns, marinades and for adding something special to Asian-style dishes.

Serving size





  • 1 large red pepper

  • 3 garlic cloves (crushed)

  • 12 Tbsp freshly grated ginger

  • 2 red chillies (with the seeds removed)

  • 60g of fresh dates (stoned)

  • 1 12 Tbsp of Apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tbsp of Honey

  • 2 Tbsp of Truvia

  • 12 Lime, freshly squeezed

* This is a mild-medium heat sauce, adjust the chilli addition according to your taste.


  • 1.

    De-skin the pepper by cutting in half, removing the seeds and placing until a hot grill. The skin will start to shrink and darken – remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Remove the skin by peeling away from the flesh. Chop roughly and add to a food processor.

  • 2.

    Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor apart from the lime juice. Add 100ml of water and blitz until smooth.

  • 3.

    Transfer the sauce to a saucepan, bring to a simmer and simmer gently for 25-30 mins, stirring regularly until the sauce has thickened slightly. Add a little more water if required to achieve the desired texture or leave thicker.

  • 4.

    Remove from the heat and add in the lime juice. Leave to cool a little before transferring to a jar and chilling. For best results refrigerate overnight before serving or using.
