What Is Keto Vanilla Buttercream Frosting?
Buttercream frosting is a type of icing or frosting that is made from butter, sugar, and cream. It is often used to frost cakes or cupcakes, and it can be flavored with various ingredients, such as vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry. Buttercream frosting is a popular choice because it is light and fluffy, and it has a delicious buttery flavor.
Keto vanilla buttercream frosting is a delicious, low carb alternative to traditional sugary frostings. Buttercream frosting is typically made with lots of sugar and butter, but this recipe uses keto-friendly ingredients that are just as delicious. This frosting is light, fluffy, and packed with flavor. It’s the perfect way to top off your favorite cakes, cupcakes, or cookies.
Can I use regular milk instead of heavy cream?
Yes, you can use regular milk in this recipe, but the frosting will not be as thick or creamy. Heavy cream is a higher fat content than milk, so it will help to create a richer, more flavorful frosting. Milk also has more carbs and sugar in it, so this pushes the frosting from being keto to just low carb. If you don’t have heavy cream on hand, you can also use full-fat coconut milk or you can use almond milk.
What Kind of Sugar is Best for Keto Vanilla Frosting
I amusing Swerve because it is my sweetener of choice. If you are using a different sweetener you want to make sure you are using a 1 for 1 swap. Otherwise, you might find that your frosting is too sweet. In some cases, it can be so sweet, that you might find that you can not eat it. If you use a different sugar and you find it is too sweet, you can make another batch of frosting, without the sugar and combine the two.
How to Store Buttercream Frosting
This keto vanilla buttercream frosting recipe will last on the counter for up to 3 days. You can also store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. When you are storing it you need to store it in an airtight container.
Can Frosting be Frozen?
Yes, this frosting can be frozen for up to 6 months. When you are ready to use it, let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight, and then bring it to room temperature before using it. You will want to whip it again to make it nice and fluffy. I beat it for about 10 minutes to make it as good as when it was first made.
Tips for Making this recipe
Use an electric mixer. I find it is best to use a stand mixer, you can use a hand mixer if you want to but to get the frosting nice and fluffy it is best to use an electric mixer.
Room temperature butter. You want the butter at room temperature, do not use the microwave to heat it up, bring it to room temperature by letting it sit on the counter.
Use a powdered sweetener. I like using swerve confectioners but you can use any powdered sweetener that you prefer. Using a granular sweetener or a liquid sweetener will not work with this recipe.
How to Decorate with Keto Frosting
This homemade frosting is perfect for decorating cakes and cupcakes. It is the perfect texture to spread on a cake and also the perfect texture to pip on cupcakes with a piping bag. You can get vibrant colors really easily also with this frosting recipe by adding just a few drops of food coloring.
