In a large bowl, cream together butter, vanilla extract, and (optional) flavor drops.
Add half of the Swerve Confectioners and cream together again.
Add cream cheese. Cream together.
Add remaining Swerve Confectioners and all of the cocoa powder. Cream together one last time.
Your frosting should be thick and fluffy now. Enjoy!
How to Store: In the fridge. Technically, it should last as long as your cream cheese or butter expiration date, but I usually don't store it any longer than two weeks.Salted or Unsalted Butter? I prefer the taste of salted butter in this recipe, but you can do any of the following:
Use unsalted butter
Use unsalted butter and add salt to taste
Use salted butter
For a Sweeter or Firmer Frosting: Traditional cream cheese frosting calls for a LOT of powdered sugar. Many recipes with this amount of butter and cream cheese call for two, or even FOUR, cups of powdered sugar. Personally, I think that's sweetness overload, but if you want that level of sweetness, or if you want something a bit firmer to pipe onto keto sweets, you can increase the Swerve Confectioners to your desired sweetness/thickness. It will add zero net carbs since sugar alcohols are not included in the net carb count.
