Every keto kitchen needs aketo frosting recipe. And thisketo chocolate frosting recipe is the one to keep in your back pocket at all times. Low carb frosting that actually tastes like deliciously sweet frosting? YES INDEED. We’re using an erythritol/monk-fruit sweetener blend in this sugar-free chocolate frosting for all of the rich and sweet flavor, without all of the sugar and carbs that usually come along with it. With just 5 ingredients and 5 minutes, you’ll have homemade sugar-free frosting. If you ever need a non-chocolate keto frosting, try this keto buttercream frosting instead — just as tasty!

The hardest part? Trying to decide what to put it on. A spoon works well… not that I know from experience or anything. 😉 And of course, keto chocolate cupcakes.

One of my favorite things about coming up with keto and low carb recipes for you all is to show you that you don’t have to give up anything even if you’re following a keto or low carb diet. With a few simple swaps, your favorites can be made low carb and wholesome. And this keto chocolate frosting is the perfect example. Now, go take care of that chocolate fix!

Is Frosting Keto?

Most frosting is not going to be keto. But this keto cake frosting recipe sure is! 😉

Many frosting recipes are loaded with sugar and definitely not keto, but we’re making a carb free icing (as carb-free as we can get!) with a keto-approved sweetener like the erythritol/monk fruit blend I use in this keto cake frosting recipe.

Each serving has just 1 gram net carb!

How To Make Keto Chocolate Frosting

Thisketo chocolate frosting recipe is ready in minutes. Which is definitely a good thing, because you’ll want to start scooping into it ASAP.

Best of all? No one will ever guess it’s keto, because it tastes just like the real thing.

Here’s how to makelow carb chocolate frosting:

  • Beat the butter. Using a hand mixer, beat the butter until it is fluffy. It will take about one minute to get it nice and whipped.

TIP: Make sure to properly beat the butter until it’s light in color and creamy– this is the key to fluffy, lightsugar-free frosting!

  • Beat in dry ingredients. Beat in the cocoa powder, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Start at a low speed and increase it to high once everything is incorporated. Beat for about 30 seconds.
  • Beat in heavy cream. The final step to thisketo frosting recipe! The cream will make it smooth and fluffy.

TIP: You can adjust the chocolate flavor and consistency by adjusting the amount of cocoa powder or cream to your liking.

How To Avoid Air Bubbles In Keto Frosting

I was a bit impatient to frost my cupcakes immediately, which is why my they had a few air bubbles. (I don’t care!)

But if you don’t want air bubbles, simply let the frosting rest!

For best results, refrigerate overnight, then let it come to room temperature before using your low carb chocolate frosting.

How To Store Low Carb Frosting

Store thissugar-free frosting recipe in the refrigerator, as it has butter and heavy cream in it.

It will harden in the fridge, but you can simply let it warm up a bit on the counter and give it a quick stir to make it fluffy again.

Theno carb frosting will last for one week in the refrigerator.

Can You Freeze Keto Icing?

You can also freeze thisketo frosting if you won’t be able to use it within a week. (I don’t see how this would ever happen, but just in case. ;))

Store the frosting in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight to let it soften and give it a quick stir.

  • Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies – Yes, this is just being a tad over-the-top, but you’ll thank me once you try a keto cookie sandwich. Two chocolate chip cookies, with a healthy spread ofketo chocolate frosting in between.
