Keto Chocolate Frosting

You’ll be adding this Keto Chocolate Frosting to almost any of your desserts! Decadently delicious, perfectly chocolate-y, and sugar free!

Sugar. Free. Chocolate. FROSTING mouth you go. No judgement.

Why this is the Ultimate Keto Chocolate Frosting Recipe

When I frost a cake or cupcakes, I like to make sure the frosting is perfectly sweet, decadent and rich, and unbelievably smooth! That is most DEFINITELY the case with today’s keto chocolate buttercream frosting. It’s lucious, it’s sweetened beautifully, and it’s also HEALTHY- that’s right, this frosting I am going to show you today contains healthy fat and protein, making it keto friendly AND low carb. It’s a great choice for topping cakes and cupcakes, or for just eating straight off the spoon. You will never need another keto frosting recipe, that I can guarantee!

Is frosting Keto?

If you are looking for a dessert that is low carb and aligns with the Keto diet, frosting can be a great choice! Like most icing recipes, this keto friendly chocolate frosting uses butter which is a fat, and has very little carbohydrates! I also swapped out regular sugar for Swerve sweetener and used almond milk to make this frosting, which adds a bit of protein and makes it oh-so-smooth. 

Ingredients Needed

You’ll only need a few ingredients to make this delicious frosting, many of which may already be hanging around in your pantry and fridge. Here’s what you’ll need to round up before we get started on the icing:

ButterConfectioners Swerve Sweetener Cocoa PowderAlmond Milk (or heavy cream)SaltVanilla

How to make Keto Chocolate Frosting

This keto frosting is absolutely delicious, but that doesn’t mean it’s complicated to put together. In fact, it is SUPER easy and fun to make, so let’s get started so that we can enjoy it!


In a large bowl, add the butter. Make sure it has softened to room temperature, then beat with an electric hand mixer until it’s soft and fluffy.


Add in all remaining ingredients, and beat once again with your electric hand mixer until everything is well combined and the frosting is smooth.


Serve as desired and DEVOUR!

How to use Keto Chocolate Frosting 

There are so many ways to get creative with frosting, the first way being just enjoying it right off of a spoon! To make chocolate chip muffins with cream cheese filling a bit more decadent, add a bit of frosting to the tops, or instead of cheesecake filling, stuff some strawberries with a bit of keto frosting instead! This frosting would also be satisfying and delicious on top of any batch of cupcakes or layer cake, keto or not. 

How to store Frosting

This frosting stores really well and will last up to 2 weeks if stored properly! I recommend using a rubber spatula to scoop the frosting into an airtight container and placing it in the fridge. When you’re ready to use the frosting, take it out from the fridge and let it sit on the counter until it reaches room temperature. Next, you’ll want to stir it to fluff it up with a spoon or spatula to achieve the right consistency before serving.
