How to Make This Whipped Cream Keto Recipe {Quick Overview}

This is just a quick overview of some of the steps involved in making the low carb whipped cream. For the recipe in detail, including exact measurements used at each step, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

Here are five steps to the whipped cream process (yes; the numbers are in the correct order; I wanted to show #3 and #5 side-by-side):

five steps showing the keto whipped cream process

Step 1: Add heavy whipping cream and Swerve Confectioners to a bowl.

TIP: Make sure your heavy whipping cream, bowl, and beaters are chilled. (For the bowl and beaters, you can put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.)

Step 2: Combine the heavy whipping cream and Swerve on low-medium. (My mixer has 7 speeds and I do this step on 3.)

Step 3: Increase the speed of your mixer to medium-high and continue until the whipping cream begins to thicken. It will stick to your beaters at this point, but it won’t have the density of whipped cream yet.

Step 4: Add vanilla extract.

Step 5: Increase the speed of your mixer to medium-high and continue until the mixture forms medium peaks. Don’t overbeat or you’ll end up with butter! I confess I like to live on the edge and make my whipped cream just a touch thicker than what most people do. I’m okay with that and the process hasn’t failed me yet. 😉

How to Make Canned Heavy Whipping Cream Keto

For that canned whipped cream look, I used this dessert decorating set.

For this recipe, I used the fourth nozzle from the left. It’s very simple to use – you just remove the lid/plunger, spoon your whipped cream into the top, replace the lid/plunger, and press down on the top to disperse the whipped cream. This set is also great for frosting like my keto chocolate cream cheese frosting.

Net Carbs in Keto Whipped Cream

Keto Whipped Cream has 0g net carbs if you go by the labels shown on most cartons of heavy whipping cream.

However, due to rounding allowances on nutrition labels, food manufacturers can label an item as 0g if the individual serving size (in this case, 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream) contains less than 0.5g net carbs. Heavy whipping cream contains, according to the USDA, 0.4g net carbs per 1 tbsp.

I use USDA data when calculating my nutrition facts, so that is why you will see this Keto Whipped Cream listed with net carbs vs. some Keto Whipped Cream recipes that show 0g net carbs. I like to be precise! 😉

Frequently Asked Questions about Keto Whipped Cream

Is whipped cream Keto friendly?

Generally, whipped cream is keto friendly.

However, the vast majority of commercially produced whipped cream contains added sugar, which many people prefer to avoid on keto. For example, Reddi-wip Original contains both sugar and corn syrup. Although each (tiny!) 5g serving contains only 1g net carbs, which means it’s technically acceptable for keto*, it’s not the best choice for your diet.

*I’ve found that statements about foods being technically acceptable for keto if they contain a small amount of added sugar to be controversial at times, yet most people won’t think twice about eating bacon on keto… which contains a small amount of added sugar. 😉 It’s up to you to decide what you want to do about small amounts of added sugar in foods with low net carb counts.

Is there sugar free whipped cream?

Yes! You can make sugar-free whipped cream at home with this recipe.

Another option is Great Value (Walmart)’s Sugar-Free Whipped Cream, which comes in a can just like Reddi-wip. Unfortunately, it contains sucralose (an artificial sweetener that is generally avoided on keto) and some preservatives. Your best bet is to make your own!

Are there carbs in whip cream?

Yes, although they are minimal – usually 0.5-1g net carbs per serving.

This recipe contains 1g net carbs per 1/4-cup serving.

Is heavy cream the same as heavy whipping cream Keto?

They are basically the same thing as they are both required to contain at least 36% milkfat.

Whipping cream, however, only contains 30% to 35% milkfat. I don’t know about you, but it feels like whipping cream should make better whipped cream than heavy whipping cream (since whipped cream is light and fluffy!), but heavy whipping cream actually makes better whipped cream because it holds its shape longer and whips better than plain ‘ol whipping cream.

How much keto whipped cream does 1 cup heavy whipping cream make?

1 cup of heavy whipping cream will make approximately 2 cups of whipped cream, so this recipe yields approximately 4 cups of whipped cream. You can increase or decrease the recipe to meet your needs.

What can I serve low carb whipped cream on?

Lots of things from keto coffee to keto cake to keto ice cream and more! Here are some of my recipes that call for a delicious topping of keto whipped cream:
