Low Carb Chocolate

To make this low carb chocolate buttercream frosting, I used 80% cacao dark chocolate. This type of chocolate is low in carbs but still has a good flavor.

You can use low carb chocolate chips instead (Lily’s or ChocZero are good options).

Always read the label to make sure the chocolate is indeed low in carbs. Another option is to use low carb white chocolate chips.

Swerve Sweetener

Since I wanted this keto chocolate buttercream icing to be low carb, I used Swerve Sweetener instead of regular white sugar.

It tastes almost like regular sugar, but it doesn’t raise blood sugar levels as sugar does.

I use this sweetener (as well as many other keto friendly sweeteners) in many of my keto baked goods and it works great!

Vanilla Extract

In this sugar free chocolate buttercream frosting recipe, I used vanilla extract for a little extra flavor.

Vanilla extract is a great addition to any baking recipe. It adds depth and richness to the flavors and helps to enhance the overall taste of the dish.

You can also try adding other extracts like almond or lemon, to give your frosting a unique flavor.

Cream Cheese

It’s very important to use full fat cream cheese to make this low carb buttercream frosting. The cream cheese is what gives the frosting a thick and creamy texture.

If you use low fat or non-fat cream cheese, the frosting will be too runny. It won’t taste very good either.

Many times, I hear people complaining that their frosting isn’t thick enough, and they don’t realize that’s because they didn’t use full fat cream cheese.

Carbs

This keto buttercream chocolate frosting contains just 1.5 net carbs per serving of 3 tablespoons. You can eat it guilt-free knowing you are not adding a ton of carbs to your diet.

I tried many buttercream chocolate frosting recipes- and some of them were actually very high in carbs. This one, on the other hand, is the perfect balance of low carb and delicious.

I hope you liked my keto chocolate buttercream frosting recipe! It’s so easy to make, and it tastes amazing.

The texture of this frosting is really good. Add it to your favorite keto cakes, and keto cupcakes, or even use it as a topping for your keto muffins.
