The whipped cream is very dense and will not flatten down after whipping, still it has the fluffy texture and will be a great addition to any dessert.

 

What is keto whipped cream?

Keto whipped cream is cream that has been sweetened with low carb sweeteners and whipped using a mixer or a whisk until it is light and fluffy. It is suitable for decorating pies, cakes, and can be served over fresh fruits. 

Is whipped cream okay on keto?

Yes, whipped cream is okay on keto if you replace the regular sweetener with a low carb sweetener option. In that case, your whipped cream will contain roughly 0.6 grams of carbs per serving. 

 

Tips to make whipped cream

  • Before you do any whipping of anything, make sure your ingredients are chilled. The colder the better, as this will give them stability. If possible, make sure you are using even a chilled bowl. This will be super handy even when beating egg whites.
  • Want longer lasting whipped cream? Use a food processor. Your food processor or mini chopper is the key to long-lasting whipped cream, ready in less than five minutes.
  • To prevent deflating, add 1 tbsp of crème fraiche. It has a high fat content and will keep up all on spot.
  • You can even make a whipped cream in a mason jar. Just add 1 cup of heavy cream in a mason jar and place in a fridge for 10 minutes. Apply the lid and shake for 5 minutes.

Common mistakes to avoid when making keto chipped cream

  1. Not chilling your ingredients – If you do not chill the heavy cream and it is too warm while you’re whipping, your whipped cream will fall flat. This is because the fat will be ineffective as a stabilizer. If this happens your low carb whipped cream will be deflated and start weeping. 
  2. Over whipping – When you over whip cream you will get extra dense and thick cream that is not spreadable. Also, lumps will appear making it look unappealing.
  3. Using the wrong cream – If you use the wrong cream in terms of fat content, you may end up with unstable cream or poorly whipped cream. Fat is what you need to get it perfectly whipped and firm and if you skip it, the results may be poor. Choose any cream with 30% or more fat as the fat holds the bubbles of air between its fat molecules.
  4. Not whipping enough – What if you do not whip cream enough? If you do not whip cream enough it will not be stable and will deflate.

Which cream is better for this recipe? Heavy or light?

I suggest making the whipped cream with a heavy cream vs light cream as it will whip better and hold its shape longer if decorating something. 

You can also freeze the syrup for up to two months in an airtight container.

 

Storing low carb whipped cream

So you made a bit too much of the whipped cream? Do not worry, it is not lost. Here is how to store any leftovers.

You can store whipped cream overnight in a fridge, or freeze. To freeze; spoon leftovers on a wax paper-lined baking sheet, then transfer the dollops to a freezer bag.

 

Recipe Variations:

  • Instead of heavy cream you can use coconut cream. Chill some coconut milk in a fridge overnight. Scoop the white firm part and whip as you would heavy cream.
  • You can use other keto approved sweeteners such as swerve or monk fruit.

  • Fresh berries like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries
