Pineapple Teriyaki Sauce (Soy and Gluten Free!)

by Heather

Pineapple teriyaki sauce is absolutely the best teriyaki sauce! I love that it’s made with 3 (or 4) ingredients, is gluten-free, soy-free, and is made with zero added refined sugar. That makes this sauce whole-30 friendly as well! Plus it’s super easy to make, and delicious on your favorite vegetables, meats and as a dipping sauce. Watch the how-to video below to see how your ingredients transform into a sweet and tasty pineapple teriyaki sauce!

Teriyaki sauce is often loaded with TONS of added sugar. Today I’m going to show you how to make a version with zero refined sugar! The sweetness in this best teriyaki sauce comes from pineapple juice.

Yes, pineapple juice has natural sugars in it. We’re using nature made sweetness for this recipe and combining it with coconut aminos for the sweet and umami flavors.

You can add a 3rd ingredient in at the end to more quickly thicken this sauce up – cornstarch or arrowroot powder. Or simply keep on simmering the sauce and it will thicken up naturally!

How to make it

  1. Add the coconut aminos and pineapple juice to a small saucepan over medium heat and allow to simmer. Simmer the sauce for 10 minutes.
  2. Dissolve the corn starch in a small bowl with 2 tbsp cold water. When fully dissolved, mix into the simmering sauce. Continue to stir for 2 minutes as the sauce thickens, then remove from heat and allow to fully cool. When cool, store in an airtight container in the fridge. The sauce will keep for a few weeks in the fridge!

Note on thickening:

To omit the cornstarch or arrowroot powder, simply continue swimming the sauce for about 10 more minutes to let the sauce naturally thicken on its own.
