If you are just now getting started with low carb, or this is your first time making a low carb frosting recipe, then you are probably asking yourself, How to make cream cheese frosting without sugar?. It is actually really easy and instead of sugar you will use a sugar substitute.
When you are using a sugar substitute, the body doesn’t digest or absorb it but you still get the sweetness you want in a dessert or keto frosting recipe. However it is important to remember that while this frosting is a keto friendly frosting, a low carb frosting and a sugar free frosting that it is still a dessert recipe.
Many sugar free frosting recipes include things like maple syrup for the sweetener, that is not a keto friendly, low carb friendly or sugar free option really because it is loaded with carbs. You do not have to worry about that with this sugar free cream cheese frosting recipe.
I personally like using swerve confectioners sugar for this sugar free frosting but you can switch it out for your favorite sugar substitute if you would like to.
