Life is so much better with frosting!

Grab a spoon and dig into this glorious buttercream frosting that’s also KETO! Yep, you read that right! You can have keto frosting as an occasional treat to satisfy sweet cravings when doing some low-carb baking. The secret is using a keto-friendly powdered sweetener such as Swerve confectioners.

It does such a great job at making frosting! The taste and texture is beautiful and so much like traditional sugar in my opinion. Plus, you just need a few ingredients and a few minutes to whip up a batch of homemade creamy buttery frosting!

Frosting is my favorite!

Are you a “more cake please” type of person, or more of a “gimme all the frosting” fan? I can honestly say that a good buttercream frosting is the BEST! If you’d like to try out a yummy keto version, you won’t be disappointed with this one!

I think I love the chocolate even more than the vanilla, but I wouldn’t turn down either! Ha!
