Keto Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients
Swaffer Confectioners Sugar Substitute: Swerve Confectioners is a fantastic sugar alternative if you’re seeking for one. It employs (natural) sugar alcohols, which can be subtracted from the net carb count because they have no impact on blood sugar levels.
Swerve now contains no net carbohydrates. Additionally, it measures similarly to sugar, so there is no need to estimate how much to use. I prefer the 48 oz. bags over the 12 oz. bags since they are more practical and cost less per ounce.
These flavor drops from Capella are a crucial part of my go-to cream cheese frosting recipe. Although they are optional in this recipe, I adore the additional complexity of taste they bring.
Dutch Process Cocoa Powder: While you can use standard cocoa powder, I strongly advise using Dutch process cocoa powder because it is less bitter and has a more potent chocolate flavour (delicious!).

Make Keto Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
This is merely a brief explanation of how to prepare keto chocolate frosting.
The greatest keto cream cheese frosting can be made by following these steps:
Melted butter and extracts are blended together.
Once more combining the cream, add half of the Swerve Confectioners.
Cream and softened cream cheese are combined once more.
Once more combine the remaining Swerve Confectioners, all of the chocolate powder, and the cream.
How to Prepare
Butter and cream cheese(room temperature). Powdered sugar is used in MASSIVE quantities in classic cream cheese frosting. There are several recipes that call for two or even four cups of powdered sugar when using this much butter and cream cheese. Personally, I find that to be an excess of sweetness, but if you prefer a sweeter frosting or something a little harder to pipe onto keto treats, simply increase the amount of Swerve Confectioners. As sugar alcohols are not counted in the net carb count, it will result in a net carb increase of zero.
If your frosting becomes too thick after adding more Swerve Confectioners, you can thin it out by gradually adding more heavy whipping cream, up to 1 tsp at a time.
I adore the richness of taste the Capella Buttercream Flavor Drops give, but they are optional.
You can use standard cocoa powder, but I strongly suggest Dutch Process Cocoa Powder because it is less bitter and has a more potent chocolate flavour (delicious!).

A LOT of powdered sugar is required for traditional cream cheese frosting if you want a sweeter or firmer icing. There are several recipes that call for two or even four cups of powdered sugar when using this much butter and cream cheese. Personally, I find it to be an excessive amount of sweetness, but if you want it or if you’d like something a little stiffer to pipe onto keto treats, you can increase the amount of Swerve Confectioners to achieve your preferred sweetness/thickness. Since sugar alcohols are not counted in the net carb total, it will have no net carbohydrate impact.
