Grocery List

Here are the ingredients needed for making Keto Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup of heavy cream, chilled in the refrigerator
  • 1 tsp keto-friendly sweetener like erythritol or stevia
  • To make flavored versions:
  • Optional: 1-2 scoops of C8 MCT Oil Powder to boost fat macros

Components

Your kitchen will require the following:

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Hand or countertop mixer
  • Spatula

Directions

  1. Be sure to chill your heavy cream in the refrigerator, ideally overnight. It should be cold, but not frozen, or you won’t be able to whip it.
  2. Pour your heavy cream into a large, dry mixing bowl.
  3. Add the keto-friendly sweetener to your heavy cream.
  4. Begin whipping your cream with a mixer on slow speed, as not to splash it outside of the bowl, and gradually increase the speed to high as it thickens.
  5. If you’re making flavored whipped cream, add the vanilla essence or unsweetened cocoa powder after a few minutes of mixing.
  6. Continue to mix your cream until soft peaks begin to form. These look like soft mountains, but don’t hold their shape long. At this point, you can stop. You don’t want to keep mixing or you’ll start to make butter!
  7. Using a spatula, transfer your whipped cream to a serving bowl. You can serve immediately or cover it and store it in the refrigerator for later use.

Note that alternatively, you could use a food processor. In this case, you would simply add all of the ingredients, and whip them on the processor until soft peaks form. If you use a food processor, you don’t necessarily need to chill the whipped cream, as the processor is more powerful than a mixer will be.

The ingredients used in keto whipped cream offer some other nutritional benefits, too. The heavy cream is a good source of vitamin A and potassium. Unsweetened cocoa powder will also offer a small amount of minerals like iron, potassium, phosphorus, copper, and magnesium, as well as fiber.


Leftovers and Meal Prep

This keto whipped cream recipe can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for later use. You can also freeze it if you decide to make a large batch to use later, just be sure not to take it out too early or it will melt. If it frozen always thaw it in the refrigerator to maintain an ideal texture. 

If you’re not feeling the vanilla essence, you can omit this, especially if you’re using this whipped cream in an otherwise flavorful and sweet dish. You can also add almond, orange, or other flavored extracts for a different taste.

We think you’ll find this recipe to be simple, delicious, and worry-free when it comes to your dietary needs. It’s good enough to eat straight from the spoon.

  • I grew up making whipped cream thus way only we used honey for sweetener. I will have to try this with Keto sweetener.
