Keto Frosting Recipe – Homemade and Low Carb

2 months ago

The main ingredient in any frosting is powdered sugar, which you should avoid at all costs if you are on a keto diet. Learn how to make delicious sugar-free cream cheese frosting and sugar-free chocolate frosting for your muffins, cupcakes, and more with our simple keto frosting recipes.

While traditional frosting isn’t keto, you can still enjoy it by replicating your favorite frosting flavors and using keto-friendly ingredients instead. As a lover of cupcakes, particularly chocolate cupcakes, I struggled with dessert at the beginning of my keto journey as I had developed a true love for all things sweet. So you can only imagine the joy I felt when I began to experiment with my recipes to make everything keto-friendly.

Adding frosting to your keto desserts can really amplify the taste and make it so much better. But if you’re going to do so, you should make sure that you have a healthy icing that won’t mess up your diet. Here’s what you need to know.
