Why this Recipe is Best
When I first started my journey to eat and cook with less sugar, I knew one thing: I would not be giving up whipped cream.
Yes, I could still enjoy my beloved coffee shop lattes sans whip and eat fruit-filled desserts not topped with the creamy clouds of sweetness, but why miss out on one of life’s little joys?
As it turns out, living a life free of added sugar doesn’t have to mean skipping out on the joy of whipped cream. Whew.
With all the sugar substitutes out there, I knew I could create my own sugar free whipped cream at home that was world’s better than any of the store bought varieties. I tried a few different ones but this version, made with Powdered Monkfruit, is by far the best.
This Sugar Free Whipped Cream Recipe creates a picture perfect topping for all your favorite sugar and flour free desserts. You’ll also love adding this to your homemade lattes for a treat!
Monkfruit is an all natural sweetener that, when powdered, closely resembles confectioner’s sugar. It whips up beautifully in this recipe without leaving any chalky aftertaste or raising your blood sugar levels. Besti Brand Powdered Monkfruit is my go-to sugar substitute, but Swerve is easy to find at most grocery stores.

Tips and Tricks
I’ve been making my own homemade whipped cream for years and, while it’s easy to do, here are a few handy tricks to make sure your sugar-free whipped cream comes out perfectly.
- Use a cold metal bowl – Put the metal bowl from your standmixer in the fridge or freezer for a half hour before making your whipped cream. A cold bowl helps the cream set up faster and stay firmer. No time to chill? Just put a few ice cubes in the bottom of the bowl, swirl them around, then remove them and dry the bowl before adding the whipped cream ingredients.
- Use cold ingredients – Keep the cream in the fridge until just before adding to the mixing bowl for best results.
- Use an electric mixer – A stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment is my preferred way to get the high stiff peaks you’re going for when making whipped cream. You could also substitute hand held electric beaters.
This keto whipped cream is best eaten within 3 days. Serve immediately or store it in a tightly covered container in the fridge for best results.
When whipped cream begins to get soft, this is called “weeping” and it’s an easy fix! Just beat it with your mixer again until the stiff peaks start to form.
I use a tablespoon to spoon the whipped cream onto whatever I’m enjoying it with. It’s delicious on Pumpkin Pie, coffee and on all kinds of fruit. I love to dip strawberries in sugar free whipped cream for a sweet pick-me-up.
