Stevia Cream Cheese Frosting
A keto and low carb sugar free frosting sweetened with Stevia
- 8 ounces Cream Cheese softened to room temperature.
- 1/4 cup Butter softened to room temperature.
- 2 tbsp Greek Yogurt Milk, Buttercream or similar dairy
- 1 tsp Stevia - Granular pure Stevia is preferred. We will start at 1 tsp and add additional as needed .
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
In a mixing bowl using a stand mixed fitted with a paddle attachment if possible, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Alternatively, you can do this by hand if you desire.
When the cream cheese and butter are well blended you can switch to a whisk attachment (or a whisk if by hand) on your mixer. Then whisk in 1 tablespoon of your dairy (Greek Yogurt or alternative) until that is blended.
Next, add 1 teaspoon of the Stevia and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Whip or whisk the frosting for about a minute on medium.Test the frosting for sweetness. If additional Stevia is needed, add only a small amount as this will go a long way. Also, if the frosting appears to be too thick for your needs, you can add an additional dairy (no more than 1/2 a tablespoon at a time).If you are looking for a thicker frosting and this becomes difficult to whip, you can switch back from the whisk to the paddle.
Continue to whip or whisk the frosting until you reach your desired consistency. This frosting needs to be refrigerated
Please see post for details including ingredients.
As mentioned, Granular Pure Stevia is recommended for this frosting.
This recipe has been formulated for the "Pure Stevia" rather than the "blended" product. Also, this recipe would work best with the granular Stevia rather than the liquid variety.
Also, this recipe also calls for Cream Cheese.
I prefer to use a regular, not whipped, cream cheese in a recipe such as this one. Also, you will need a dairy product such as Greek Yogurt, Milk or Buttermilk to help keep the texture of the frosting smooth.
