One of my favorite things about coming up with keto and low carb recipes for you all is to show you that you don’t have to give up anything even if you’re following a keto or low carb diet.

Is Frosting Keto?
Most frosting is not going to be keto. But this keto cake frosting recipe sure is!
Many frosting recipes are loaded with sugar and definitely not keto, but we’re making a carb free icing (as carb-free as we can get!) with a keto-approved sweetener like the erythritol/monk fruit blend I use in this keto cake frosting recipe.
Each serving has just 1 gram net carb!

How To Avoid Air Bubbles In Keto Frosting
I was a bit impatient to frost my cupcakes immediately, which is why my they had a few air bubbles. (I don’t care!)
But if you don’t want air bubbles, simply let the frosting rest!
For best results, refrigerate overnight, then let it come to room temperature before using your low carb chocolate frosting.
