Posted by

Wonderfully creamy keto cream cheese frosting is quickly whipped by hand and sweetened with stevia. There’s no need for powdered sugar! It’s beautifully thick and holds its shape well.

  • 8 oz cream cheese cubed, soft
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoon stevia glycerite (equals ½ cup powdered sugar)


  • If you need to soften your cream cheese, remove it from the wrap, cube it, and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave it in 10-second sessions, until soft but not liquid.
  • Add the vanilla and stevia. You can use a powdered sweetener instead of the stevia.
  • Using a hand whisk, whisk vigorously, until the frosting is completely smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes. 
  • If you prefer to use an electric whisk, start whisking on low speed until the mixture is uniform, then increase the speed to medium and beat until fluffy, about 1 minute, scraping the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. 
  • Spoon the frosting on top of six cupcakes and spread to frost the top, or use a piping bag. You can also use this frosting to frost a single-layer cake.


The amounts listed here make enough frosting for six cupcakes or for a one-layer cake. For 12 cupcakes or for a two-layer cake, double the amount.

A granulated sweetener will have a grainy mouthfeel. It’s important to use a powdered sweetener if not using stevia.
