Is Whipped Cream Keto Friendly? Try this Recipe!
Yes! The fluffy cream product is suitable for keto dieters, but the best way to go about it is to prepare your own keto whipped cream yourself. Traditional whipped cream contains added sugar and artificial sweeteners, so by making your own version, you’ll be able to swap some high carb ingredients around with low carb alternatives to fit your keto diet needs.
Does whipped cream have carbs?
Whipped cream is considered a product that you should avoid when trying to lose weight as it’s high in fat. But the standard ketogenic diet, made up of 15-20% protein, 5-10% carbs, and a whopping 75% fat, might make the cream product okay to consume on a keto diet. Here is what you need to know about keto-friendly whipped cream.

Whipping Cream vs heavy cream
Both whipping cream and heavy cream are a mix of milk and milk fat. But the texture and fat level is entirely based on the proportions of milk and milk fat in each product, as each manufacturer tailors their recipe. So although heavy cream has a thick texture, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it contains more fat. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, whipping cream has between 30 to 36 percent fat, while heavy cream generally contains between 36 to 40 percent fat.
