Low Carb Coconut Frosting: A Keto Frosting Recipe

Low Carb Coconut Frosting: A Keto Frosting Recipe

Coconut desserts are a family favorite in our household. I created this specific recipe for my youngest 13th birthday. She requested cupcakes with a creamy coconut frosting. I wanted to see if I could create something so good, she wouldn't know it was a sugar free frosting!

With this Low Carb Coconut Frosting Recipe, I really outdid myself. (Her words). When she bit into the cupcake, she closed her eyes and nodded her head vigorously. She said "perfect". If a 13 year old approves, it's worth it, right?

These recipes, are, of course, meant for special occasions and not everyday indulgences. This is a way to stick to your low carb it keto diet for birthdays and holidays where it may otherwise be tough.

After all, food is a part of life. We celebrate with cake on our birthday. Why shouldn't you be able to remain sugar free, low carb and grain free? Have your cupcake and eat it too! You truly won't believe these are keto!

This low carb frosting recipe is creamy, rich and indulgent. It pipes onto cupcakes perfectly. I like to toast some unsweetened coconut and sprinkle on top for an added crunch & a pop of flavor.

Substitutions For Low Carb Coconut Frosting


What's The Best Natural Sugar Alternative?

In this low carb frosting, I've used a sweetener that is made from Japanese pumpkins. It's called Bocha Sweet, and is my preferred alternative to sugar for all of my low carb frosting recipes. Bocha Sweet tastes like sugar because of the pentose in it from the pumpkins. It has been proven not to spike your blood sugar or insulin levels. I combine it with Stevia in most of my recipies as these are my two favorite natural sweeteners.
