Low-Carb Whipped Cream
This keto recipe is super simple, easy to make, and adds a great accent to any dessert. Sometimes, I’ll just whip up a batch of whipped cream and top it with nuts to conquer a sudden sweet tooth. I can have it ready in less than three minutes with only three ingredients, and it’s much healthier and more affordable than its processed copy-cats you find at the grocery store. I hope you enjoy this Low-Carb Keto Whipped Cream as much as I do!
Why Not Buy the Store-bought Whipped Cream
The whipped cream you buy from the store is often made with vegetable oils and preservatives that cause inflammation and cravings. When you make your whipped cream at home, you know exactly what ingredients you are using.
Next time you’re in the store, pick up one of those cans of whipped cream and read the ingredients list. I’ll wager that half of the ingredients don’t even sound like food.
You will be surprised how easy it is to make these simple things at home from whole foods.
Simple Keto Whipped Cream Ingredients
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Vanilla Extract
- Confectioners Swerve (or sweetener of your choice)
I like to use the Swerve (erythritol) sweetener, because it tastes so similar to sugar, without any of the carbs or calories. If you have a natural sweetener that you prefer like Stevia, feel free to use it instead. You will have to play around with the amount to add, and just sweeten it to taste.
You will also need a mixer with a whisk attachment. It is possible to do with a regular hand whisk, but it will take
I prefer the lazy way to make this recipe. This is the exact hand mixer that I used in the video. It’s cheap, works well, comes with multiple attachments. I’ve had it for months, and it’s still going great, but it isn’t so expensive that I would be upset if it happened to break.
Since making the video, I bit the bullet and bought a KitchenAid. It was “love at first whip.” It makes my whipped cream super
Step One: Whisk
First, whisk the heavy whipping cream until it has the consistency of whipped cream. This takes a little over two minutes with my hand mixer, less with the KitchenAid.
Step Two: Add Sweetener and Flavor
Next, gently stir in the vanilla and the swerve. This is the simplest recipe ever, and so delicious. It literally takes three minutes!
My kids eat it this low-carb keto whipped cream straight out of the bowl, and never know it’s not loaded with sugar.
