Enjoy all of the taste and none of the guilt with this Keto chocolate buttercream frosting. A creamy and delicious frosting to top all your low-sugar recipes!
Looking to satisfy that sweet tooth without ruining your diet? Our Keto chocolate buttercream frosting is the solution. Perfect for all of your low-sugar cake, cupcake, and cookie recipes, this Keto chocolate buttercream frosting is a low-carb option that is deliciously sweet!
Our Keto vanilla buttercream was so popular, that we had to come up with a chocolate version!
To give this Keto chocolate buttercream its sweet flavor, I use Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener, which is a cup-for-cup alternative to regular powdered sugar.
There are other low-carb sweeteners available such as Confectioners Swerve, which are extremely suited to make frosting.
Make sure the sweetener you use is an exact 1:1 sugar replacement, or else the sweetness will be unbalanced.
If you only have granulated sugar, run it through the food processor to get a powdered texture. Using plain granulated sweetener as is will make this frosting too gritty and won’t work for this Keto buttercream.
For best results with buttercream frosting, I always recommend using a stand mixer. Stand mixers are the best way to give your buttercream that silky smooth texture without cramping your hand.
This recipe makes enough frosting to fill and frost a 6″ three-layer cake. It will also cover an 8 or 9″ two-layer cake completely.
No, milk is not a Keto-friendly ingredient and cannot be substituted for heavy cream. If you need to find a substitute for heavy cream, you can use almond milk or full-fat coconut milk.
Dutch-process cocoa powder alkalizes the cocoa powder, giving it a richer, chocolaty taste. It is optional in this buttercream recipe. Regular unsweetened cocoa powder works as well. Note that the frosting will be slightly lighter in color with the unsweetened cocoa powder.
This frosting can be frozen for up to six months. Prepare as directed, and then freeze. Once you’re ready to use it, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight, and then beat with an electric mixer for couple of minutes until light and fluffy.
Enjoy this frosting on our Keto vanilla cake for a no-guilt dessert with all of the taste!
