ingredients for keto Frosty copycat recipe

Hip tips to make the best keto-inspired Wendy’s Frosty:

  • I added just a tablespoon of almond butter (you can also use peanut butter or even cream cheese for fewer carbs).
  • If you’d prefer, this can be made in a stand mixer such as a KitchenAid. It’ll take a couple of minutes for stiff peaks to form.
  • For a vanilla variation: Use 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 heaping tablespoon cream cheese, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon liquid stevia, ½ teaspoon Swerve confectioners.
  • For a Peanut Butter Chocolate variation: Use 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 tablespoon almond butter, 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon sugar-free peanut butter powder,  ½ teaspoon liquid Stevia, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and ½ teaspoon Swerve confectioners.

This looks fancy, but it was super easy to create!

To get the fancy soft-serve look, scoop the chocolate frosty in a plastic freezer bag, cut the end from the corner, and pipe into small cups.

    Hubby hates stevia… do you think swerve would sub ok?

    • Lina D

      Yes I think you could definitely use your favorite sweetener of choice as desired. Enjoy! ?

    • Heidi

      I used Torani sugar free Vanilla flavoring syrup instead of stevia delicious

      • Angie

        Great idea!! Thx

      • Deborah

        Sugar free torani syrup has Sucrose, it’s still a sugar, not a keto item, but I agree not much out there for people who get a bitter after taest from stevia and the others.

        • Cindy

          I believe sugar free Torani has sucralose, which is carb free

        • Alyssa

          Allulose is a great sugar substitute! No aftertaste. Your system doesn’t absorb it.

        • Sylvie

          I use Munkfruit .
          Looks and tastes like sugar

  2. Julie Davis


  3. Rebecca Shebester

    Looks yummy. Conventional dairy does not work for my family though. It makes keto much more difficult!

    • Blutterfy

      Just use coconut cream – it works great 🙂

  4. Mel

    yum! Can’t wait to try this!!

  5. Heather

    Can you use peanut butter instead of almond butter?

    • Lina D

      Yes, however consider a natural low sugar brand. ?

  6. Mary Jo Thompson

    Can you use sugar free chocolate jello pudding in it?

    • Lina D

      That’s not an ingredient we would recommend. Thanks!

  7. Cheri

    Can you store the extra servings in the fridge, or do they need to be frozen?,

    • Lina D

      Yes, both would work.

  8. Inez Herrero

    This looks delicious! However, my husband and daughter have very bad nut allergies so I can’t use almond butter. Would sunflower butter be a good substitute? Any suggestions? Thanks!

    • Lina D

      Yes that sounds great!

    • Crystal

      I did read you can sub for cream cheese make sure it’s rook temperature to mix better

  9. Inez Herrero

    Thank you Lina D!

  10. Kristen

    I want to make this for my g’son…..artificial sweetners don’t work for us….help!! TIA

    • Lina D

      Use the desired sweetener that fits for your lifestyle. Can you do erythritol? Xylitol? Stevia? Those are natural sweeteners. Monk fruit’s another option, too! — Hope that helps! 🙂

  11. Darla

    No way. OMG I love frostys and make as them so much.

  12. Nonna

    thank you

  13. Jennifer

    Can you use truvia granuals?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Yes you can! You will just want to adjust the amount accordingly.

  14. Michele

    Tastes too much like the peanut butter to be a frosty

  15. Bri

    Yum! I can’t wait to try this!!

    • Lina D

      Thanks Bri!

  16. Saif

    I use truvia what is the equivalent amount to use ?

  17. Abiola T

    Can I not use the almond butter and just use everything else?

    • Lina D


  18. Cheryl

    Omg so good! It’s so hot here in southern Ontario I felt like I was melting and a frosty is one of my all time favorites! This hit the spot, I didn’t have any liquid stevia so I used some super free s’mores skinny syrup ! Thanks so much for your recipe !

    • Lina D

      You’re welcome! Yum!

  19. Pam

    Could I use half cup of almond milk and half cup of heavy cream to cut down on the fat content?

  20. Pam

    Could I use a half cup of almond milk and a half cup of heavy whipping cream instead of the cup of heavy cream?

    • Lina D

      You know, you could definitely try that. Please let me know how it works!” 🙂

      • Jenni

        I did this. Still yummy but didn’t quite get to stiff peaks.

  21. Angie

    I am working on losing weight. Is there a low cal substitute for the heavy cream?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Because fats are self-limiting and fill people up faster (and keeps them full longer), keto is a higher-fat diet. If you’re counting calories, you can try going with 50/50 cream and coconut milk or almond milk, but I’m not sure how creamy the result will be. If you try it, would you mind letting us know? We love reading how friends tweak our recipes!

  22. Cynthia McElhatten

    I am thinking of just freezing it in the ziplock bag instead of transferring it after it’s frozen. I also wonder if coconut butter would work like peanut butter?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      You should be able to freeze it. I wouldn’t sub in coconut butter for peanut butter. I think it could change the consistency/outcome. That said, if you give it a shot, we’d love to hear how it turns out!

  23. Michelle

    Does not taste like wendys frosty at all the almond butter throws off the taste

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! SO sorry you did not care for it. Thanks a bunch for the honest comment!

    • ann

      Use a low sugar peanut butter…tastes much better!

  24. Teresa

    Would regular butter work?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Not sure how that might turn out. If you decide to try it, let us know what you think!

  25. ann

    1st time I made this I whipped it too long. I just made it again using a low sugar peanut butter and it turned out great! Delicious…I had to hold back from not eating all 4 servings!

  26. Lisa V

    Have you tried using an ice cream maker after mixing? I can’t wait to try this!

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      We haven’t tried that, but it may work!! If you decide to give it a go, let us know how it turns out!

  27. Melinda

    Can I make this without a mixer?

    • Lina D

      Maybe with a hand beater if you have one.

  28. Elliott

    How can you make it for diabetes

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      This is sugar free, but you might want to test your blood sugar to ensure your favorite sugar-free sweetener won’t tamper with your readings. We want to keep you healthy! If you have concerns about the effects of sweeteners on your blood sugar, I’d ask your doctor to be safe.

  29. Beth

    I’m making it now and I’ve been beating forever and still not stiff. Are you supposed to whip the cream first and then add the other ingredients?

    • Lina D

      I just mixed everything together at once. So sorry you’re having a hard time. Yes maybe next time whip the cream first.

  30. Katrina

    How much monk fruit would equal to 5 drop stevia?

  31. Cara

    How do you sub cream cheese?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      I there! I would not try it with cream cheese as it would thicken the recipe too much and give it a tangier flavor. UPDATE: You can however, use the same amount of cream cheese as we have listed for the almond butter. Hope that helps!

      • Amanda

        But it was suggested in the recipe…

        • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

          Thanks, Amanda! You can use the same amount of cream cheese as we have listed for the almond butter. Hope this helps!

  32. Jenn

    I tried this recipe but when it came out of the freezer, it was hard as a rock. Definitely can’t put it in a ziplock bag. What have I done wrong???

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! Be sure to let it set out for a few minutes, so that it can thaw a bit. It should soften up for you that way. 🙂

  33. Iva

    I made this. It never fluffed, and I did not like the taste at all.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! SO sorry to hear you did not care for it! 🙁

  34. Wendy

    OMG! O!M!G! This is an amazing treat! What a perfect dessert on a warm summer night! DELICIOUS!

  35. Lisa Ramirez

    Picture shows peanut butter, recipe says almond butter…guessing either will do?

    • Lina D

      Yes either ?

      • Angie

        can this be made in an ice cream maker?

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          I think that’s a great idea! Let us know how you like it! 🙂

  36. Jaime Clubb

    Is the almond or peanut butter necessary? Does it add too the consistency or is it for flavor?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! The peanut butter adds that umami to deepen the flavor, along with just the slightest hint of salt. Removing it might really affect the flavor. Hope that helps!

  37. Carol

    How much cream cheese for the substitute Will I red to add salt if I use the cream cheese?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Carol! You can just use the same amount of cream cheese as is listed for the almond butter. Hope that helps!

  38. Mark Nicholls

    This looks awesome…. will try this weekend….

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Yay! Hope you enjoy it!

  39. Diana

    What is the serving size?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! This recipe makes 4 servings. Hope that helps!

  40. Sheila

    This recipe is so delicious! I used homemade peanut butter and sweetened it with xylitol because that’s what I had on hand. The taste reminds me of a fudgesicle, which is a favorite treat from my childhood.

    • Lina D

      Perfect! Thanks for sharing ?

  41. debby

    I was so excited to try since I have been craving ice cream but something went way wrong with mine. I did the cream cheese for less carb and I ended up with no peaks and lots of little dots of cream cheese in chocolate water. Did I over beat? I never got stiff peaks. 🙁

    • Lina D

      Oh darn! That’s a bummer 🙁 So sorry that happened. maybe whip cream first then fold in softened cream cheese, next time.

    • Steph

      I would guess it was over beaten. Sounds like the cream turned into butter.

    • Kristin

      That will happen if your cream cheese is cold. Let it come to room temp and it should be good.

  42. Karen

    Can I use powder stevia instead of liquid, and if so, how much?

      • Andrea

        so am I correct that I would use 5T of confection swerve?

        • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

          Hmm, It looks like 5 drops would equal to 1/3 of a teaspoon of the powdered. Maybe start with that and see how it tastes. Hoping that helps!

  43. Janet Bland

    Re the clumps in chocolate water comment: that is from whipping too long. Basically you ended up with butter clumps, cream cheese bits and whey. I learned over-whipping turning to butter when making tiramisu one time 🙂

  44. Mary

    Just whip he cream cheese first – add everything, the. Fold in cream after it is whipped

  45. Helen B

    I followed this recipe exactly, but something did not work. The unsweetened cocoa powder is so bitter, that’s all I can taste. It did not look anything like the pics — it’s very dark, and I used everything as listed in the recipe. Not sure what I did wrong. Maybe I should have used a different type of cocoa. Too bad. I was really looking forward to this as a treat.

  46. Kara

    Awe too bad … mine turned out curdled as well … consider posting new directions … more specific. It looked like it was heading in the right direction… I couldn’t get to peaks and kept mixing . It then curdled

    • Dawn

      More specific than this???? How much more simple can these directions be??? Mine tuned out amazing and I just put it all in a bowl and mixed lol

  47. Tammy

    I just made this recipe and it turned out great. I couldn’t quit eating it before I got it into the freezer. Turned out just like a Wendy’s Frosty. Thank you for the recipe.

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing Tammy!

  48. LaurieAnn Wagner

    Would this work using a blender?

    • Tallykat

      You cannot whip cream in a blender. It doesn’t get enough air. You need to use a mixer with whisk beaters if possible.

      • Joanna

        I used an immersion blender vs mixer and cream cheese vs peanut butter. Blended for about a min. Used Monk fruit sweetener and a pinch of sea salt. Tasted great! Thank you for the recipe

  49. christina

    I loved it!! Instead of stevia i used 1.5 tbsp of monk fruit. but i was looking at the ingredients in the almond butter and it had honey in it! Which almond butter brand did you use? honey isnt keto

    • Lina D

      That’s so great! Use a type of almond butter that’s plain, without honey – thanks!

  50. Kim

    Do you have to use sweetner? I can’t do artificial sweeteners..

  51. Laura Hamilton

    I am going to try this recipe for sure. It sounds easy and delicious. However, I will try it with the cream cheese as I am highly allergic to anything and everything almond and walnut. This is the one thing I hate on the Keto eating plan is that many, many recipes call for something almond. Drives me crazy. Thank you for sharing this recipe and thank you for the ideas!

    • Jennifer

      I use sunbutter as a substitute for most things calling for almond (also allergic). I could probably pulse sunflower seeds in the blender to make a flour type substitute but haven’t tried that yet.

    • Charlotte Farrier

      How did it work out? I can not have any nut products.

    • mary

      If you like Pistachios then try Pistachio Butter. I got mine at Walmart and it my most favorite nut butter.

    • Ladybug

      Try peanut butter

  52. Lu Bisignano Pierro

    I made this in my cuisinart. I soften the cream cheese first in microwave, and I added a tablespoon of coffee to give that more complex flavor. Instead of a plastic bag, I put mine in a tupperware container. It was divine! So easy and satisfying.

    • Lina D

      That’s such great news! Thanks for sharing ?

    • Jennifer Olson

      When you say, you made it in your cuisinart, what did you mean? A blender or a mixer? Do you whip the cream cheese first with the coffee and then add the heavy cream along with the other ingredients?

  53. Erica

    Any clue what the carbs are without the chocolate?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi, Erica! You can run recipe macros on free software like MyFitnessPal. You can paste the ingredients into their Recipes tab and then adapt the recipe to your nutritional needs. I hope this helps!

  54. Ellen

    any suggestions for dairy free instead of the Whipping cream? would prefer to make nut free and dairy free if possible.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Ellen! You could use coconut cream and omit nut butter. Hope that helps!

  55. Stephanie

    I have this currently chilling in my freezer! It was a bit better so I added some powdered Swerve. I also doubled it but the 10 drops of stivia wasn’t sweet enough. Added about 1tbs of Swerve! I was licking the beater after it was mixed! I used my stand mixer instead of my hand mixer. Can’t wait to eat it! Hoping it will freeze ok and I can just let it thaw a bit before eating it!

  56. Audreyrub

    This didn’t work for me at all. I had chocolate soup with clumps of grit. Thought maybe since its been so hot and humid that it kept the cream from whipping? Chilled it a bit for a while and rebeat. It got fluffier, but still granular and gritty. Added more stevia but it’s still too bitter. I’m going to have to experiment a bit to make this one work next time.

  57. Brittany

    I’m am exactly a month into keto and this recipe is beyond helpfu for helping me stay on track! I love that the keto diet has so many satisfying foods and this recipe is one of them. Thanks for posting!

    • Lina D

      That’s amazing news! Thanks for coming back to tell us 🙂

  58. Taylor

    LOVED THIS! Taste exactly like a frosty and cured my ice cream craving!! to avoid the curdling affect, dont use any butter and add 1/8 tsp of salt into the dish!

    • Lina D

      Perfect! I’m so glad it worked out 🙂

      • Ashley

        Just made this Frosty inspired treat in Dec….used cream cheese, what I had on hand. It is absolutely delicious, decadent and creamy. It may be over the top for some taste buds, but the cream cheese is everything:) Used powdered Stevia. Also tried without chocolate so I could it late night. Like the vanilla Frosty at Wendy’s. ..it’s different and some like it more, some say no way chocolate please…others it’s a toss up. I encourage you to try using different flavors etc, really super easy recipe, my kiddo loved making it with me and I just used slightly more kid friendly ingredients for theirs and it was all yum. Thanks H2K. On to look at the pumpkin cheesecake mousse recipe…..

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          That is so great Ashley! Thanks so much for sharing!

  59. Debbie

    I revisited this recipe after discarding. Melted the butter and cream cheese (subbed it instead of almond butter), put in the cocoa and sweetener…simmered a bit, and then cooled it completely on the counter before mixing in the whipped cream and vanilla. It was much better in our opinion.

  60. Linda M Au

    When I use almond butter in keto chocolate fudge, it comes out tasting like almond butter. Blech. I wonder if substituting coconut butter would work. Is that a 1:1 ratio, do you think? (I like the taste of coconut so if it was a bit like coconut, I’d at least like the flavor.)

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      That should work! Maybe try a half batch to test and let us know how it turns out!

  61. Kent Wilson

    I made this tonight using the cream cheese because I had some on hand. The only adjustment I made was I used cacao instead of cocoa so I adjusted the sweetener to taste. Came out awesome, great recipe, thanks for sharing!

  62. B Weemhoff

    I made this using ingredients as listed but tasted bitter. Did anyone elses taste this way? Would love to make again but need help.

    • Marcy

      Just use Swerve instead of the Stevia and always taste test;) you can always add more to your liking

  63. Sonya

    I made this but cut the ingredients in half. I used cream cheese and added a tiny bit of instant coffee because someone else suggested it, and a pinch of salt. I whipped the cocoa powder and granulated monk fruit and erythritol sweetener (about 1 tbl spoon). I then
    folded in the softened cream cheese. It is absolutely delicious and the perfect consistency. Thank you so much!!!!!!

    • Lina D

      That’s wonderful news! Thanks Sonya ?

  64. Heide

    Just made this and can’t wait for the freezing process! The beaters I cleaned off were so yummy. I didn’t have almond butter and used peanut butter, whipped up so easy! Thanks so much for sharing. ???

    • Lina D

      Hooray! We love to hear that and you’re very welcome! Thanks Heidi!!

  65. Jaime

    This may have already been asked, but if I just wanted to eat one serving, can I store the rest for a period of time?

    • Lina D

      It may be ok for a day or so. If it starts separating just whip up again briefly ? thanks

  66. tim

    your recipe calls for 1 cup heavy whipping, that equals 800 calories.. how did you come up with 241?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! The recipe makes 4 servings, so the macros are correct. The nutritional information shown in the recipe is per serving. Hope that helps!

  67. Wanda Carlisle

    I love this recipe. We make it several times a week. If you are Keto and love Chocolate this is an amazing recipe. We use Dark Cocoa to make it richer and add a few drops of vanilla occasionally.

  68. Luke

    What is a “drop” of liquid stevia? My stevia comes in a bottle you have to squeeze – no drops… related question – 5 “drops” of liquid stevia = how much sugar/sucralose?

  69. Bre

    How much ice cream is in 1 serving? One cup? Less?

    • Lina D

      I would divide batch into fourths – it fluffs up – so about 3/4 cup or so. Thanks

  70. Jeans

    I tried this exactly as the recipe calls. It looked amazing and I couldn’t wait to try it. It tasted horrible! I tried it many times and had other people try it too both adults and children. None of us could finish it. I added a little more stevia and tried it and then even sweetened cocoa powder and it was still terrible. I really wanted to like this recipe but was very disappointed unfortunately.

  71. Kathleen Jercha

    I made it last week , I loved it

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Yay! Super glad you enjoyed it!

  72. Samantha

    I’m wondering if you know the calorie count? I see the Wendy’s calories of the chocolate frosty was posted? Does that mean it is the same calories for 1 serving?

    • Lina D

      Hi Samantha – the nutritional info with calories for this recipe specifically is towards the bottom of this post. And yes it is per serving.

  73. Gloria

    I made this recipe recipe using almond butter. It ice a smooth consistency and also a nice appearance. However the taste was horrible. The unsweetened cocoa powder is extremely different to mask with it’s bitterness.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Bummer! Sorry to hear that, Gloria! Thanks for the honest feedback!

  74. Amy

    Hi, we have severe allergic reaction to tree nuts and peanuts in our house , instead of using almond butter what can I use?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      HI Amy! Another reader that had a nut allergy has used and suggested Sunflower butter. Hoping that might help!

  75. Diane

    Can you use Plain Greek Yogurt in place of the Cream Cheese?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh interesting! If you do let us know – sounds yummy 😋

  76. Lauren

    How do you suggest to store this if you want to save leftover servings for later?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Covered in the fridge or freezer would be fine. You can always whip it up again if it falls flat or separates.

  77. Miranda

    Hi there. How much will the taste be effected by lack of vanilla? Also would granulated sweetener work instead of liquid? Thanks.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      it will probably still be tasty. Yes you can use granular – you may be able to taste the texture of it though.

      • Miranda


  78. Tasha

    So I just whipped this up (lol). I have a few tweaks or tips for any of your followers or any future recipe tryers.
    First, I used probably about 2 tbs of peanut butter (cause I’m a pb-aholic), also I used Splenda packets about 6 and finally I only used about a tablespoon and a half of cocoa powder. Whipped with wire wisk attachment for about 2 minutes and was able to get about 4 1/4 cup servings. Hope this helps. It tastes great!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      How awesome! Yay- thx for sharing Tasha! <3

    • Matty T

      I think you’re on the wrong site

      • Hayden Mitchell

        Splenda is a granulated no calorie sweetner

    • Dianna Vaughn

      Never use splenda its a pesticide soaked in bleach. Use stevia its totally safe

        • Pamela Dearing

          But still not healthy for you

      • Karen Lowman

        Stevia is my “go to”, Splenda if I’m out to a restaurant with none in my bag. Ever since I found out that Aspartame( which I never liked anyway) was developed in a laboratory from petroleum waste.

      • Gloria

        finally someone who knows how BAD Splenda is for you. Never use it or the pink, yellow or blue restaurant packets of false sugar sub.

    • Rich

      Splenda is unhealthy.

    You’re in my bookmarks now

    • Marley (Sister Sidekick)

      Yay—That’s AWESOME! Thank you!!

  80. Steph

    Awesome. Just maybe skip the waste of a plastic bag. 🙂

  81. Elizabeth

    And then if you have leftover do you keep it in the freezer?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes that works! Or in the fridge. If you need to fluff it up again, can do so 👍

  82. Cathy Cordell

    This didn’t work, no peaks, looks nothing like the picture.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh darn, sorry it didn’t work for ya as expected.

  83. Emma smirh

    Almond butter??? Is it just ground up almonds? Like fresh peanut butter but almond. Please help

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes that is correct. Just pick one with little to no added sugar 👍

  84. Beth

    I made this today and it is DELICIOUS. I had stevia packets on hand instead of liquid, so I used two. Next time I may use a few more, as it wasn’t quite sweet enough for my taste, but overall I LOVED this consistency. I’ll definitely make a bigger batch next time so it lasts longer!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s so great Beth!

  85. Diane taber

    Hi I’ve just started my keto diet and need some hints and tips advice on this diet please thank you

  86. crystal stearns

    reminds me more of my chocolate moose than ice cream. It good either way.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! SO glad to hear that, Crystal! Thanks for letting us know you enjoyed it!

  87. Rosanne

    Your recipes r amazing. Would love to join your group.

  88. Sarah

    I have just made this for first time of which there are sure to be many! Was so easy to follow instructions and it tastes so much like the real thing! Unbelievable! Thank you!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks Sarah! I’m so glad you enjoyed ❤️

  89. Erin

    Can you add any protein powder to this?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think you could add a little – just be careful to incorporate well so it doesn’t get grainy.

  90. Suz

    Is it possible to replace HWC w canned coconut milk?

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Suz! That should work, just be sure to chill it first.

  91. Janet H

    I need to make this ahead of time. Can I make it then put it in the freezer? Does it have a good consistency when it thaws out?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That may work. Also, you can always whip it up again if it falls flat or separates. Hope that helps!

  92. Monique

    So my husband is moving towards dairy-free and I always wonder but have never tried…if full fat coconut milk would/could whip up close to HWC? Do you think I could get stiff enough peaks?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I think if you followed these steps by using only the cream from the top of can. Hope that helps!
      1. Place can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for 1-2 days before whipping.
      2. Chill your mixing bowl for 30 minutes, then open your can of coconut milk and scoop out the hardened coconut cream.

      • Cynthia

        Hi Lina, how about using cream of coconut instead of the milk?

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Yes that would be yummy, Cynthia!

  93. Magda

    Does this ACTUALLY taste like the real thing? It looks good nonetheless but please just honest opinions.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      We sure hope you enjoy it if you decide to give it a try!

  94. Nicole

    I found out that my Stevia liquid does not come out in drips. It just squirts out of the bottle & I think it is too sweet (hard to happen for me). How much would you estimate for measurements for sweet? 1/4 tsp?


    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, I would do 1/4 tsp to start, Nicole!

    • Rich

      To get the stevia to come out in drops, you have to barely squeeze. My work in drops. Maybe take a needle and open the opening up a little more.

  95. Dean

    I was so looking forward to trying this after months of strawberries and Stevia but was sorely disappointed. I adjusted the cocoa and sweetener to get the flavor right but the consistency was that of frozen whipped cream (which is, of course, what it actually is). It did not sit well with me and I threw most of it into the trash.

  96. Beth

    Just made this and it was wonderful! I was looking for something quick to whip up and to satisfy a craving. This did the trick.

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      So glad that you enjoyed it and that it was quick and easy to whip up! Thanks for the feedback.

  97. Suzanne

    If I use 1tbs cream cheese (1 carb) instead of almond butter — I can’t figure out where the other carbs come from! Of course, this is probably a massive rationalization to eat the entire recipe in one sitting — so help, please!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! If you’re swapping out the almond butter, keep in mind that that both the whipping cream and cocoa powder also have carbs that attribute to the overall carb count in the nutrition info. There are also 4 servings in the entire recipe so the nutritional info is for each serving, rather than the whole recipe. Hope that helps!

  98. Karen

    If I replace the sweetener with honey, how much should I use. (I know this raises the calories some).

  99. Steph M.

    Wow! I whipped this up in minutes on a quick break from work and it had the consistency and color of a Frosty, which was impressive. The taste is obviously not identical, but I added a shot of sugar free whipped cream and it was a delicious, velvety smooth treat. I can’t wait to try it with cream cheese in place of the almond butter! Thanks for sharing!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good I’m so glad it was a winner for ya!

  100. Laurel

    Made this twice, first time with Stevia. Found that Stevia added to bitterness already there with cocoa. Second batch with Swerve confectioners, much better texture, 1T swerve still left bitterness from cocoa, 2T was perfect! Great recipe!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh awesome! Thanks for letting us know how you liked it best! SO happy you enjoyed it!

    2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tbsp almond butter
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    5 drops liquid stevia (or sweetener of your choice)
    I am wondering why it differs from what you have here.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We used My Fitness Pal to figure out our nutrition information. Some brands will differ a little bit in nutritional values as well.

      • Debbie

        I’ve made this using chocolate protein powder instead of unsweetened cocoa.

    • KetoH

      All recipes differ by products used..

    • Deb

      Gloria, I never trust the macro apps. There’s always mistakes! If you want to definitely be accurate just do the math yourself with each of your ingredients. But the one cup of cream itself would have 8 carbs, so that would be two carbs a serving right there without including the almond butter and the cocoa powder. 😊

      • Pamela Gintonio

        I use a Giant Eagle Brand heavy whipping cream which has 0 carbs

        • Chris

          All cream has around 0.5 carbs per Tbs… Companies are allowed to say 0 per serving if anything is less than 1 per serving!

    • Caitlyn M

      Did NOT taste good at all. Not sure if it was because of stevia like another comment mentioned. Weird aftertaste, tried adding more stevia, keto powdered sugar to add any kind extra sweetness. It was that bad. Might try again with monk fruit.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        I’m sorry you didn’t like the taste. I use monkfruit because I don’t like the aftertaste of sweeteners either.

  102. Jill

    The liquid Stevia left a bad aftertaste and it just tasted funny. I’ll have to try another type of sweetener.

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Jill. Darn I’m sorry to hear that. I am personally a big fan of Monkfruit. Maybe you can try that instead! Hope this helps❤

      • Jill


        • Becky H

          So when I look at monk fruit in the store it has sugar carbs but when I see it in recipes it doesn’t seem to add in. Am I missing something? Please help🙏🏻😂

      • Janette

        I thought Monkfruit was 100% Carbs… ?

    • Barb

      I had a similar problem. It was very creamy and definitely could taste the Wendy’s flavor but it was overpowered by bitterness. I Thought it was because of the cocoa. Maybe it was the stevia.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        I really like monkfruit because there is not an aftertaste. You could sub in a few teaspoons of that instead. I would use what I have on hand which is granular.

        • gail dinkel

          yes i agree monkfruit is the best . NO AFTER TASTE AT ALL

          • Bill Boucher

            How much monkfruit? I tried this today using a similar recipe which called for 3 tablespoons of sweetener to 1 1/2 cups cream. It was way too much and tasted awful. Thank you.

            • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

              When you use Monkfruit, you cut the sweetener in half. For the recipe you made, you would only use 1 1/2 Tablespoons. In this recipe above, you could start out with 2 teaspoons and taste it. You could add a little more if it’s not sweet enough at that point.

      • Steph

        What would the conversation be for monk fruit sweetener. I don’t have liquid

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          I would start with 2 teaspoons and taste it to see if it’s sweet enough.

    • Helen baird

      I like the swerve sugar replacement to me. No after taste.



    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Hope you enjoy it, Noah!

  104. Heidibeth

    Tried both vanilla and choc and very good except the serving sizes!!! I could easily eat two servings and still call it a small so the carbs do mount up but still worth it.
    I used my Dash ice cream maker, 20 mins.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I know what you mean! I could eat a lot more of this! Glad you liked it, Heidibeth!

    • Aubrynn

      How did you make it vanilla?

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Hi there! That option is listed above!
        “For a vanilla variation: Use 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 heaping tablespoon cream cheese, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon liquid stevia, ½ teaspoon Swerve confectioners.”


  105. Sandy brasher

    Made it today!! Easy and delicious!! I substituted the PB for 1TBSP of cream cheese and the liquid stevia for 1TBSP of monkfruit sugar substitute. 2net carbs per serving! I will be making this one again

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Great substitutions, Sandy brasher! I’m glad you are adding this to your rotation! It’s a great Keto dessert.

  106. Beautiful

    THANK YOU, added strawberry extract and a drop of red food colouring. Cut the sweetener to only Lakanto…strawberry milkshake or leave it longer and strawberry ice cream.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! You’re so welcome! Thanks for letting us know how you made yours!

  107. Amanda

    Thanks for this easy recipe!! I had some heavy cream to use up and made this tonight – used granulated monk sugar to replace the stevia, based on comments. It tastes great but is a bit gritty (I’m thinking because it wasn’t a liquid sweetener). Is there anything I can do to use granulated monk sugar but have this dessert be smoother? I’m trying to get my husband/son into keto/sugar-free desserts so am trying to avoid any kind of bitterness.

    • Ann Oh

      Hi Amanda,
      You can just blitz granulated sugar in a nutribullet until it becomes powder. That’s what I do & it works like a charm!

  108. Lindsay S.

    Do you have to use almond butter? I’m just afraid it will add a strange taste.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! You could use peanut butter or cream cheese instead. 😊

  109. Carol Banister

    Using a piping bag is such a waste of time, and yumminess lol Who does that, really??

  110. Diane

    I really want this recipe and others sweets for Keto desserts

  111. ro

    Could all ingredients be put in a nutabullet?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes, I think that’d work great!

  112. Helen Mundy

    I would like to know how much coca powder you use in your recipe

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Helen! For this we used 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder.

  113. Becky H

    When I look at monk fruit in the store it shows sugar carbs, but in recipes it doesn’t seem to reflect. What am I missing? Please help😂🙏🏻

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It does show carbs from sugar alcohol. If you are using net carbs, then you subtract all sugar alcohol which means they have zero net carbs.

  114. Badm

    Just eat or NOT eat the damn ice cream. Ketosis is nothing to fool around with.
