Cream cheese frosting is the easiest recipe on the planet. If you have a hand mixer and a few minutes of time to cream some stuff together you can make it. So, I’m not surprised that keto cream cheese frosting is also super easy. Just swap out the sweetener.

You can use this keto cream cheese frosting recipe for anything you want. I’ve seen people roll a dollop up inside a keto pancake or waffle. You can obviously top cakes, brownies, cupcakes, and donuts with it. Blake loves to frost my ultimate fudge keto brownies with it!

I’ve learned that it also freezes well. Since I’m dairy-free, I only make this for my husband. I usually end up using half a batch for whatever sweet it is he’s craving and then toss the rest in the freezer. When you thaw it out just mix it really well and it’s as good as new.

How to Powder Eurythritol

Lots of keto dessert recipes call for powdered erythritol because it dissolves easier. Preventing that gritty texture like you’re eating sand that can sometimes happen if the granulated sweetener doesn’t dissolve all the way.

There are several companies that make confectioners erythritol. So you can always purchase erythritol already powdered. Swerve makes one that I can easily find at my local Sprouts.

I like to buy my erythritol in bulk and powder it myself. It’s cheaper that way and I’m all about saving a buck when I can. So I just get these big ass 5lb bags of Anthony’s brand erythritol from Amazon and buzz it through my bullet whenever a recipe calls for it. You could use any blender, food processor, or coffee grinder. Super easy!
