Low Carb Chocolate Buttercream Frosting Recipe
A sugar-free chocolate buttercream frosting is what dreams are made of. This frosting recipe is creamy, fluffy, rich and it has the ultimate chocolate flavor. To achieve this chocolaty decadence, you will need two types of chocolate – 100% unsweetened cocoa powder and melted sugar-free chocolate. This combination creates the best keto chocolate buttercream frosting. So delicious, it might have you eating it by the spoonful.
This glorious frosting is made with sugar-free chocolate options. First we add cocoa powder. Make sure you get 100% unsweetened cocoa powder
. Other cocoa powders may be sweetened with sugar, so you want to avoid those.Next we melt down some sugar-free chocolate and whip that into the keto frosting. The chocolate I like to use is by ChocZero
. Their chocolate is sugar alcohol free too and it’s the best tasting keto chocolate out there. You could also use 100% unsweetened chocolate here too like a Baker’s chocolate if you can’t get your hands on keto chocolate.
Can I Freeze Keto Frosting?
Yes! You can freeze keto buttercream frosting. Put it in a container or freezer safe bag and freeze for up to 2 to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge before using, then allow it to come to room temperature before using.
Can I Make Frosting Ahead of Time?
This keto chocolate buttercream frosting can be made ahead of time. After you make up your frosting, store it in an airtight container and refrigerate. Just before using it, bring it to room temperature. Then stir to get it fluffy again!
Tips for Making the Best Keto Frosting
- Butter needs to be at room temperature to ensure a creamy frosting
- Heavy whipping cream is ideal for making creamy frosting. You can substitute with a nut milk but it won’t be as creamy
- Sift the cocoa powder to avoid any lumps in the frosting
- Beat the butter for several minutes to achieve the fluffiest, creamiest keto frosting
