Keto Coconut Frosting

Low Carb Coconut Frosting recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

Coconut desserts are a family favorite in our household. I created this specific recipe for my youngest 13th birthday. She requested cupcakes with a creamy coconut frosting. I wanted to see if I could create something so good, she wouldn’t know it was a sugar free frosting!

With this Low Carb Coconut Frosting Recipe, I really outdid myself. (Her words). When she bit into the cupcake, she closed her eyes and nodded her head vigorously. She said “perfect”. If a 13 year old approves, it’s worth it, right?

These recipes, are, of course, meant for special occasions and not everyday indulgences. This is a way to stick to your low carb keto diet for birthdays and holidays where it may otherwise be tough.

After all, food is a part of life. We celebrate with cake on our birthday. Why shouldn’t you be able to remain sugar free, low carb and grain free? Have your cupcake and eat it too! You truly won’t believe these are keto!

Low Carb Coconut Frosting

Course: Dessert, Keto
Cuisine: Keto
Servings: 24
Prep Time: 10 minutes

This low carb frosting recipe is creamy, rich and indulgent. It pipes onto cupcakes perfectly. I like to toast some unsweetened coconut and sprinkle on top for an added crunch & a pop of flavor.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup culinary coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup BochaSweet
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut toasted (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. For best results, bring your ingredients to room temperature by sitting them out on the counter for a few hours prior to making.
  2. In your mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the toasted coconut.
  3. Mix until combined on low speed. Then, gradually increase the speed to high and beat for 3 or 4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  4. Frost your cupcakes or cake and then sprinkle on the toasted coconut.
  5. Store your finished dessert in the refrigerator. Prior to serving, remove your dessert from the fridge a few hours ahead. This frosting is at it’s creamiest at room temperature.
