Is Chocolate Frosting Keto?
Classic chocolate frosting is delicious, but it’s normally made with powdered sugar, regular milk, and regular cocoa powder.
These three ingredients alone are loaded with sugar, bringing more than 50 grams of net carbs per serving of classic chocolate frosting.
It’s therefore not keto-friendly at all!

- Grass-fed butter – a perfectly keto-friendly dairy product.
- Almond butter – salted or unsalted as you like. This replaces the heavy cream!
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Unsweetened almond milk – which has almost no carbs compared to regular milk.
- Chocolate stevia drops
Making The Keto Frosting
Making this keto frosting takes less than 10 minutes.
Start by adding the soft butter to a large mixing bowl.
Take your butter out of the fridge two to three hours before using it for perfect softness. Butter, unlike other dairy products, doesn’t go bad quickly.
So you can safely have it on your counter.
Add the natural almond butter and use an electric beater to beat the mixture for about 30 to 40 seconds at a fast speed.
Stop the hand mixer to add the chocolate stevia drops, unsweetened cocoa powder, and unsweetened almond milk.
Beat the low-carb chocolate frosting again, but this time on a slow-speed setting because the cocoa powder is very volatile.
Adjust the texture of your frosting with almond milk if it’s too thick.
Taste the keto frosting for sweetness. If it’s not sweet enough, add a few more stevia drops.
This recipe makes many servings, 36 of them to be precise. And each serving represents 2 tablespoons.
You can store your keto chocolate icing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
But, you may not eat all this keto frosting recipe in 4 days so I recommend freezing your frosting in an ice cube tray.
Fill each ice cube tray with 2 tablespoons of frosting and freeze.
When your chocolate frosting craving is coming, defrost 1 ice cube, it will take just 1 hour to get soft at room temperature.
Another option is to thaw your snack the day before in the fridge.
Note that this recipe is not soft straight out of the fridge! It softens at room temperature as butter solidifies in the fridge.
Using Keto Frosting
There are many options to use this keto frosting.
First, on its own as a keto snack to reach your fat macros. In fact, 2 tablespoons of this healthy frosting will get you 10 grams of fat for only 100 kcal and 0.8 grams of net carbs!
It means this is the perfect healthy sweet keto snack.
Finally, you can use this frosting on top of a keto chocolate mug cake!
