Keto whipped cream FAQs

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 topping pies, cakes, fresh fruits and adding to drinks.

Is whipped cream 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 likely contain roughly 0.6 grams of carbs per serving. 

What is the difference between whipping cream and heavy whipping cream?

While heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are essentially the same thing – as they both contain 36% or more of milk fat – and can be used interchangeably, whipping cream is somewhat different. 

Whipping cream, often labeled light whipping cream, contains 30% – 35% milk fat and, therefore, when whipped, will make a whipped cream that is lighter and won’t hold it’s shape quite as well or for quite as long as heavy cream or heavy whipping cream would. 

Therefore, while they both can be whipped, a whipped cream made with heavy cream will hold its shape longer than one made with whipping cream.

Tips to make low carb whipped cream

  • Before you do any whipping, make sure your ingredients are chilled. The colder the better, as this will give them stability. If possible, make sure you are using a chilled bowl.
  • 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 which will help the whipped cream keep its shape.
  • You can even make a lazy 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 

  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 the 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 for the best results.
  4. Not whipping enough – What if you do not whip the cream enough? If you do not whip cream enough it will not be stable and your whipped cream will deflate.

Storing low carb whipped cream

If you made too much and have leftovers, simply place in a container and store overnight in the back of the fridge. Preferably, next to other chilled items.

It is not a good idea to freeze keto whipped cream as it will lose its fluffiness if frozen. The great thing is that you can make a simple sugar free whipped cream in minutes, so you can always make it right when you’re about to use it with no hassle! 

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. This is great for making a dairy free keto whipped cream.
  • You can use other keto approved sweeteners such as swerve or monk fruit.

What to serve with homemade keto whipped cream:
