Sugar Free Icing With Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding
As much as I love the all of the different sugar alternatives that are available because they make having sweets without sugar possible. I wanted to come up with a low carb frosting recipe that was also a sugar free icing without artificial sweeteners.
This frosting recipe uses sugar free vanilla pudding and it DOES have artificial sweeteners already in it. However, you do not need to add any additional sweeteners to this low carb frosting recipe. The sugar free vanilla pudding and the sugar free caramel syrup make this easy caramel frosting sweet enough as it is.
If you are strict keto, then I do want to let you know ahead of time that sugar free vanilla pudding does have Maltodextrin. If you are sensitive to Maltodextrin, this might be a recipe that you want to avoid. While this frosting recipe can be counted as a keto frosting for those who are “dirty keto” or “lazy keto” if you are strict keto this frosting recipe might not work for you.
How to Store Sugar Free Caramel Frosting
You can make this sugar free frosting in the fridge, after you have made it. This sugar free shipped frosting will stay fresh in the fridge for 2-3 days. If you need to fluff up the frosting put it in the mixer and give it a quick mix.
After you have decorated your cupcakes you will want to keep them in the fridge to keep the frosting from spoiling. Cupcakes frosted will stay fresh for 2-3 days in the fridge. I don’t like eating warm cupcakes, so when I am going to enjoy a cupcake I take it out of the fridge and then let it sit on the counter for a few minutes to warm up.
Decorating with Sugar Free Frosting
You can decorate sugar free cupcakes and sugar free cakes the same way that you decorate with frosting that has sugar.
