In a large mixing bowl, add the cubes of soft butter. Your butter must be very soft and out of the fridge for at least 3 hours. It is easier to first cut your cold butter in small cubes. Then, pack those cubes into a measuring cup. Finally, transfer the cubes of cold butter into a bowl and wait 3 hours at romm temperature or overnight, until soft.
Add almond butter and with an electric beater, beat the butter and almond butter together until a light brown cream form. It shouldn't tak more than 40 seconds on medium/high speed.
Stop the beater, add stevia drops, unsweetened cocoa powder and unsweetened almond milk.
Beat again on slow speed at first to avoid the cocoa powder to burst out of the bowl, then increase to medium speed. If the frosting is too thick to your liking, add more almond milk (at room temperature, not cold!) , 1 tablespoon at a time, beat and add up to 1/4 cup extra milk until you reach your favorite texture. The more you add, the fluffier it will be. It won't affect your net carbs per serve very much (around 0.1g extra net carbs).
Adjust stevia drops if the frosting is not sweet enough for you. Always add stevia 2 drops at a time as it is very strong in flavor. Otherwise add powdered erythritol but note that this option thicken the frosting a lot!
Store the frosting in the fridge in an airtight box for up to 4 days. The frosting gets hard in the fridge becasue the butter harden at cold temperature. Simply remove the frostin from the fridge for 3 hours to get it soft and creamy again.
Freeze in ice cube tray, 2 tablespoon in each cube hole and defrost at least 2 hour before at room temperature to soften.
