Keto Chocolate Buttercream Frosting


Keto Chocolate Buttercream Frosting by Noreen

This is a simple and delicious Chocolate Buttercream Frosting that can be used for cakes, cupcakes, brownies or anything else in your life that needs to be frosted! This recipe makes enough to frost one 8×8 pan of brownies.  If you need to frost 2 cake layers or 24 cupcakes- double the batch of frosting.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


1/2 cup butter softened, 1 stick
1/2 cup powdered low carb sweetener ( I use swerve or monkfruit)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup unsweetened almond/coconut milk or heavy cream, adjust amount as needed for your desired consistency
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Cream softened butter with electric mixer.

Add powdered low carb sweetener and unsweetened cocoa powder, mix until well combined.

Slowly add in the unsweetened milk/cream while beating until it is completely incorporated.

Blend in vanilla and any additional unsweetened milk/cream until desired consistency is reached.

And that is it!!! So simple, easy and delicious!!!
