Simple Keto Cream Cheese Frosting (Video)

This keto cream cheese frosting recipe is so easy it will have you making it every day! It’s low carb, sugar-free, and only takes 5 minutes to make.

The keto cream cheese frosting with heavy cream is a low-carb and sugar-free cream cheese frosting that can be used as a topping for cakes or cupcakes.

You’ll want to remember this Simple Keto Cream Cheese Frosting for your next cup cake or batch of brownies since frosting is one of those must-have dessert recipes. Cream cheese frosting has long been a favorite of mine, and the keto diet hasn’t altered that. If you’re a dessert enthusiast like me and find yourself creating mug cakes all the time, or if you have kids in the home, this is a wonderful recipe to make in excess and keep in the fridge.

For an example of how to make this icing, check out this keto red velvet cake video.

Cream Cheese Frosting with No Sugar

Isn’t it true that when something is sugar-free, it’s immediately all you can eat? I really want to say yes, but when it comes to calories, icing isn’t to be taken lightly. Although this dish is excellent for a low-carb or keto diet, it still contains butter and cream cheese, which means the calories may rapidly mount up. That said, in my view, it’s a must-have when it comes to topping sweets. I’d rather have a less sweet treat, like our high-fiber muffins, with this thick and creamy frosting on top!

Use Erythritol Powder

If at all feasible, use powdered erythritol in this sugar-free cream cheese frosting recipe to get the best results. The reason for this is because if you use conventional granular erythritol, the frosting would be extremely gritty in texture. 

If you only have granular erythritol at home, you can easily ground it into a fine powder using a coffee grinder!

Want to make a chocolate frosting that’s sugar-free?

If I had to pick, I would select vanilla cake with chocolate frosting every time. So, if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to create this chocolate-flavored frosting. If that’s the case, all you’ll need is some cocoa powder… or should I say chocolate! Depending on how rich you want it, anything from 2-4 tbsp should enough. You may also add 1-2 tablespoons of heavy cream or an alternative milk, like as almond, to make it creamier if it’s not as smooth as you’d like.
