If you are looking for the BEST low carb frosting, you’ve found it.

Keto Whipped Cream Frosting is light, airy and can be made into any flavor your little ‘ole heart desires. ( Yeah, I know I can’t pull off the Southern thing but it was worth a shot).

I love cream cheese frosting but this frosting is by far my favorite and I have a hard time keeping the kid from eating it right out of the mixing bowl.

The Keto Whipped Cream Frosting Master Ingredients:

  • 1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Allulose Powdered & *to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract The vanilla is the base of any flavor you are making. See the post for for flavored frosting ingredients and ideas.
  • 1/2 tsp Unflavored gelatin

The Keto Whipped Cream Frosting Instructions:

  • Using a chilled bowl and chilled whip attachment, beat until the cream is frothy.
  • Add sweetener, gelatin and vanilla extract.
  • Whip on high speed until desired thickness. You should see peaks and the whip should leave trails in the frosting.

I really like to use my Kitchen-Aid for this but a hand mixer works too.

Don’t worry about dissolving the gelatin. Just add it in.

  • Frost or put into a piping bag and use immediately. Store the finished confection in the fridge.

If I am going to share my frosted confections with anyone who lives outside of my house I try to use a piping bag with this type of frosting.

It makes the end result look beautiful and it’s a pretty easy skill to pick up. Practice on something you are going to eat at home and after that you should be able to get the hang of it.

Lifeloveandsugar.com has an awesome tutorial on how to pipe different designs onto your cupcakes.

Whip up the frosting until it’s stiff if you are using a piping bag and check out this post first.

The Flavor Variations ~

Here are just a few that I’ve made…

Chocolate:

Mix in 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder with the sweetener and gelatin.

Lemon:

Add 1/2 tsp lemon extract and the finely grated rind of one lemon to the cream before whipping.

Coffee:

1 tbsp of instant coffee dissolved into the cream. Make sure it dissolves before you start whipping.

Any flavor you want:

You can use 1/2 to 1 tsp of any extract you want. Think almond, orange, pineapple, peach… experiment, you never know what great invention is lurking in your cupboard.

Tipsy:

One to two tablespoons of rum, bourbon or schnapps can liven up any cake.

  1. Hi – will this be thick enough to use on a cake as frosting for a double layer cake?
    Thank you

  2. Hey Jodi!
    The gelatin is NOT totally necessary for it to work. But it will not “hold” up as well if you are going to be using a piping bag. I do not use the gelatin most of the time. Just follow the recipe and omit the gelatin. Whip it past the fluffy “whipped cream” point. It will get stiffer and denser as you go even without gelatin. Use it right away and put the finished product in the fridge for a bit before slicing. Don’t let it get hot sitting out…not sure what will happen since it rarely gets above 70 where I live but my guess is that it will melt faster than usual. I hope it turns out great!

  3. My daughter is a vegetarian. Is the gelatin necessary for this to work? Any other suggestions to sub it out? Thank you.
