Sugar free whipped cream

When making keto desserts, I think it’s essential to have a few basics up your sleeve, like powdered sugar, frosting, and keto whipped cream. 

I’m the kind of person who is EXTRA when it comes to my desserts. If there’s a way for me to take it up a notch, I will do it. Whether that be adding some vanilla ice cream to some brownies, a drizzle of caramel over some gooey blondies, or even some melted chocolate over a skillet cookie, I’ll find a way to take it up a notch.

However, 9 times out of 10, I like to keep things simple. If there is one thing that goes well with ANY dessert, it is a classic homemade whipped cream. 

Is whipped cream keto? 

When people hear whipped cream, they often don’t associate it with a keto diet. That is often due to the misconception that it’s loaded with sugar. Luckily for us, whipped cream CAN and IS keto, provided you use a sugar free sweetener. 

Now, this sugar free whipped cream is so simple to prepare and looks and tastes like any whipped cream you’ve grown up with. It’s made with just 3 ingredients and takes seconds to make. Fluffy and pillowy in texture, it’s pleasantly sweet with a hint of vanilla

Perfect to top your drinks with, decorate your desserts with, or even just eat with a spoon, I guarantee you’ll be adding it to everything and anything!

How do you make low carb whipped cream? 

The Ingredients

  • Heavy cream– Also known as double cream, clotted cream, heavy whipping cream, or thickened cream. Keep it chilled until it is ready to be whisked. 
  • Vanilla extract– A must for a subtle vanilla note. 
  • Sugar free powdered sugarKeto powdered sugar provides both sweetness and a super fluffy texture. 

The Instructions

Start by chilling your mixing bowl and your whisk. This helps the whipped cream stabilize and also remain extremely smooth and fluffy. 

Place your chilled cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar into the chilled bowl. Using a stick mixer or stand mixer, beat together on medium speed until medium peaks form. Use immediately, or cover the bowl and refrigerate for 12-24 hours, or until ready to use.

What is the difference between heavy cream and whipping cream? 

Heavy whipping cream/heavy cream is different from whipping cream. There is a slight difference in fat content. 

While they can all be used interchangeably, the whipping cream is not as stable and generally isn’t the best to use for pipping or a thicker frosting. 

Carbs in heavy cream 

Provided you follow the ingredients provided, you’ll love how minimal the carbs are in both heavy cream and whipped cream. 

  • Heavy cream– Per 1/4 cup of heavy cream or heavy whipping cream, there is a mere 1 gram of carbs per serving.
  • Whipped cream– Per 1/4 cup of keto whipped cream (as written), there is a mere 1.2 gram net carbs per serving.v
