Plus, since it only takes 5 minutes to put together, my guess is it'll become a new favorite keto recipe.
- heavy whipping cream - or whipping cream (the fat content of heavy whipping cream is higher)
- vanilla extract
- Swerve erythritol or Lakanto monkfruit
A Note On Keto Sweeteners
Both erythritol and monk fruit can be swapped in most recipes 1:1 that call for granulated sugar. Whether I use Swerve brand erythritol or Lakanto monkfruit often depends on what's in my pantry. I've experimented with both. If I HAD to pick my absolute favorite keto sweetener, it would be the Lakanto Monkfruit.
Stevia is another popular ketogenic sweetener, it's MUCH stronger than erythritol, monk fruit, and regular granulated sugar. You CANNOT substitute it 1:1 in recipes. Personally, I like to save stevia for recipes that just use a pinch since in large quantities it takes on a bitter powdery taste.
Although, stevia is FANTASTIC in keto whipping cream!

Step By Step Instructions
Here's the quick and easy 5 minute no-bake recipe for keto and low carb whipped cream (well, actually it's no carb whipped cream)!
Add the heaving whipping cream, vanilla extract, and sweetener to a medium-sized mixing bowl.
With a handheld electric mixer or stand mixer, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form, which will take about 2 minutes.
You can beat 1 more minute to create stiff peaks if you're creating a keto whipped cream vanilla mousse. Be sure not to overbeat or you'll start making butter.
It's best to serve the keto whipping cream immediately, but it can be stored up to 2 hours in your fridge.
Recipe serves 4-8 depending on if this is being used as a dollop on top of another dessert or as a dessert on its own.
- The key to making a great low carb whipped cream is in keeping everything cold! Leave your cream in the fridge until you are ready to whip it. Or, you chill your bowl and beaters before you begin making your homemade whipped cream.
- Soft Peaks vs Stiff Peaks: Forming soft peaks means to beat the whipping cream until little cream peaks form when you pull the beaters out. The keto whipped cream is very light and fluffy at this point and just barely holds its shape. To create stiffer peaks, continue whipping, but be careful to not overwhip as you will create butter. Here's a link to an article by Fine Cooking Magazine which shows images for soft peaks, medium peaks, and stiff peaks.
When made with stiff peaks, you can actually serve this homemade dessert all by itself! It will take on a consistency similar to vanilla mousse. Or, you can use it to top all of your favorite low-carb desserts including keto pumpkin pie and keto raspberry custard pie
Keto friendly whipped cream is best served immediately, especially if you want to hold it's fluffy shape by making vanilla "mousse" with a pastry bag and cupcake tip.
The no-carb whipped cream will keep in the fridge for up to two hours. It'll seriously start to soften and lose its shape after that so you only want to make as much as you're needing for a recipe.
No, you cannot freeze this keto whipped cream recipe.
If you'd prefer not to worry about soft peaks, stiff peaks, or even worse, turning your low carb whipping cream into butter, one of my FAVORITE kitchen finds is a whipped cream dispenser that makes it perfect every time and works GREAT for storing the keto whipping cream for days instead of just 2 hours.
