Why I Love This Recipe

Is whipped cream keto-friendly?

Traditional whipped cream is not keto-friendly as it contains sugar, but you can make keto whipped cream with natural sugar substitutes.

Most recipes use sugar to sweeten whipped cream, but not us. Use your favorite natural sweetener to make this low-carb whipped cream recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of heavy cream.
  • 2 teaspoons of erythritol, which is a natural sweetener, you can also use monk fruit, which is another natural low-carb sweetener.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (optional). I only flavor the whipped cream if the recipe calls for it, such as for cakes or pies.

It’s a simple recipe, but there are a couple of secrets to making the perfect keto whipped cream.

  1. Cold cream. Make sure your heavy cream is very cold but not frozen
  2. Pour. Pour 2 cups of heavy cream into a large, clean mixing bowl (make sure the bowl has been rinsed well in water; the slightest residue can ruin a whipped cream)
  3. Sweeten. Add two teaspoons of erythritol (monk fruit will also work) to the cream.
  4. Whip. Use a hand mixer to whip the cream on a slow setting. If you think the cream will not spray everywhere, increase the speed to medium.
  5. Optional. After 2 minutes of whipping, add vanilla essence if you wish. (We only add vanilla if a recipe calls for it to enhance the flavor of certain recipes; it’s your call!)
  6. Continue. Whip until the cream forms soft peaks when you lift the mixer beaters from the cream. This can take between 3-8 minutes.
  7. Caution. Do not whip past the point of soft peaks, or you’ll begin to make butter.
  8. Serve or store. Transfer your whipped cream to a serving bowl, apply to a recipe, top a beverage, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days

This keto whipped cream recipe makes 16 servings.

How do you store whipped cream?

Store whipped cream in the refrigerator covered in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Store whipped cream towards the back of the fridge on a middle shelf, as it is cooler in the back. The cooler temperature helps preserve the peaks.

Tip: Adding sweeteners helps stabilize the whipped cream allowing for the peaks to hold for longer.

  2. I freeze it and it is awesome. One spoonful helps to curb my cravings and is great in my keto tea or coffee.

  3. Just wanted to add a comment about turning your mixer up to a higher speed “if you think it won’t spray the cream everywhere” – I have a Tupperware bowl that’s made for exactly that reason. It’s plastic (of course – Tupperware) and has a cover with a round hole in the centre of it. The hole has a removable disc that snaps into it so you can keep the contents airtight when you’re not mixing in it. It works really well, except I find whipping cream always works better, faster, and more consistently if you do it in a glass or metal bowl. I always try to put my bowl and the mixer attachments in the freezer for 15 or 20 minutes before I start mixing the cream. Most of the time I make a dish that requires whipped cream, it’s a holiday and it seems like the kitchen is hot from cooking so many dishes, so it works much better when everything is cold. I will often just take that lid from the plastic bowl and use it on top of a glass or metal one. Also, before I got the Tupperware, I used a paper plate with a hole cut in the centre of it. Works just as well, and you don’t even have to wash it! If you still have trouble getting the cream to whip, I find adding a tsp of cream of tarter will sometimes do the trick. Just a few things I’ve discovered over the past 30 years or so. Thank you SO much for your recipes – I just found this site, and am excited to try more of them. My stomach is over full right now from the Low-Carb Keto Chocolate Smoothie from your list of the “9 Best Keto Drink Recipes.” I can’t wait to try the Keto Chai Latte-Creamy Slow Cooker Recipe. It looks like the perfect thing to have for a get together this time of year. <3
