Low Carb Buttercream

Print Friendly and PDF

Today is my dad's birthday! I made him a delicious chocolate cake, and I had to top it off with the perfect buttercream. It's super simple, and tastes delicious! I don't have nutrition facts here because I couldn't really quantify how much icing is in one serving, as it all depends on your cake pan size, slice size, etc. I will say that this makes a lot of icing. I'd guess maybe 3.5 cups worth. I iced a 2-layer 8-inch cake and even had 1 cup leftover. But I'm definitely not complaining about leftovers of this stuff around the house. ;)


4 sticks butter, softened
~2.5 cups powdered Swerve
~1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
~6 squeeze Whole Earth monk fruit juice concentrate


1) Whip the softened butter until smooth.

2) Add vanilla.

3) Alternative adding the powdered Swerve and heavy whipping cream. Mix well before each addition. Note: The quantities here are estimates, but add each until you get a nice frosting consistency that is not too thick and not too thin.

4) Try it, and then add monk fruit juice concentrate until you accomplish your ideal sweetness.
