Stable Keto/Low Carb Whipped Cream-3 Ways!!!!

Updated: May 3

I learned early on that we couldn't just make whipped cream and have it for the day. It usually only last an hour or so, so if you don't eat it all right away it will become liquid again. Over the years I have found a few ways you can keep that from happening and have it hold up for days for those delicious whipped cream keto desserts!

The first way is using gelatin which is the best way to frost a multi-layer cake or cupcake with whipped cream frosting. If you are just using a little whipped cream to top ice cream or pudding before you eat some, it's not worth going through the trouble of putting gelatin in it. But it's perfect if you want to put it on something that you want to serve the next day. The most important thing is making sure your gelatin is tempered correctly with the cold whipped cream that is at soft peaks. In the video I didn't even do it fully correct and had a few bits of gelatin in the whipped cream. I needed another scoop of cream in the gelatin but I was worried about the gelatin setting up to fast. So you need to work fast but also make sure it is sufficiently tempered before pouring into the whipping cream. Once done you want to frost right away before the gelatin sets up. So don't make the whipped cream until the cake, cupcakes or pie are ready for the whipped cream topping. It will be thick and gelatinous in the fridge for a week or more. This recipe makes enough to cover 24 cupcakes and it will freeze and thaw perfectly.

The second way is with cream cheese which is great for a frosting a simple one layer cake or a delicious light fruit dip or just eating as a mousse with different add ins. I like to mix it with peanut butter, crushed cookies or chocolate chips. Many call this a mousse but it's kind of a cheat way to make a mousse and they usually have more cream cheese than in this recipe. If you put more cream cheese it will be stiffer and can be used as no bake cheesecake or filling for cakes. But with just a little added cream cheese to the whipped cream you don't get a super strong cream cheese flavor and a light and creamy whipped cream. The most important tip here is soft cream cheese and whipping it up with a little of the soft whipped cream first to incorporate it well into the big batch of whipped cream. It makes a soft and creamy dip or accompaniment for fruit, cookies, puddings, or sliced cakes like angel food or flourless chocolate cake. This recipe I would only make a day ahead after a few days in the refrigerator it loses it's integrity. It is still delicious but gets softer the longer it sits in the fridge.

The third way is with my keto sweetened milk recipe. I found this out by accident actually when I had left over of my keto no churn ice cream recipe and placed it in the fridge in case I could use it again the next day. And to my surprise it was still in whipped cream form the next day and I was able to place it into more popsicle molds for more ice cream bars. This recipe is only good to top a slice of cake, ice cream, pudding, etc. It is not very stiff at all even after being in the refrigerator. That is because allulose keeps things very soft, which is why it is great for a frozen ice cream. So if you make extra or have some left over you can always put it into the freezer. I wouldn't suggest leaving it for more than a few days in the fridge then placing in the freezer because some of the liquid can seep from the whipped cream. It is best eaten the day of or after it is made. This version has a caramel flavor to it because of the caramelized allulose in the sweetened condensed milk so if that is something you don't want on your dessert, I would skip this version or just make it into delicious ice cream!

Now onto flavorings, sweetness and add ins for these recipes. All these measurements for powdered sweetener are adjustable to your sweetness level. And you can use any powdered sweetener you like, just know that the powdered allulose sweeteners may mess up the texture of the stable whipped cream. You can even just use a liquid or powdered stevia. Another sweetener alternative is to use a sweetened keto powder like Collagen or MCT oil powder. They have the flavor and sweetness already in them but you can still add more if needed. If using them with the gelatin method you can probably cut down the amount of gelatin because most powders have a gelling agent added to them already. I just added vanilla extract to all of these but you can use any extract you want in any amount you like. Other add ins besides the powders are peanut butter, chocolate ganache, spices, or instant coffee or espresso. Lots of options and there are recipes on how to do these on my channel, links above.

I have used your stabilized whipped cream recipe and it works really well and does hold up in the frig. It is a very good replacement for Cool Whip. Thank you!

I do have one question, I am looking for a sugar free recipe for a whipped cream typie filling that would be the same as the filling in bakery cream sticks. Every recipe I find is either for a custard or actual whipped cream.

Do you know of such a recipe? I want to use it as a filling for keto donuts. Thank you for all that you do. You have the best keto desserts on the internet!!

I've never had a bakery cream stick. I'm guessing what you may be talking about is like the white cream or angel cream found in a donut? I do not have a recipe for that but I'm guessing it has some hydrogenated oil in it similar to a chemical "better cream" that is sold to bakeries as a stabilized whipped cream with a lot of stuff that doesn't sound edible in it. Which is why most that recreate it just do a stabilized whipped cream like I have here. Aww thank you, I'm glad you can trust my recipes!
