Is Whipped Cream Keto?
You bet it is! With less than 2 grams of carbs for a 1/4 cup serving of heavy cream and whipping cream are keto-friendly.
Is Stevia Keto?
That’s exactly why we are using it. In fact, Stevia is nearly 300 times sweeter than straight sugar. With this in mind, a few drops go a long way to sweeten up your whipped cream or ice tea. Stevia has no carbs so it’s perfect for your keto-friendly diet.
How to make Whipped Cream
Making sugar-free chocolate whipped cream is very easy. All you need is a cold mixing bowl and beaters. You can do it with muscle power and simply use a whisk, however, I prefer to use a handheld mixer, a stand-up mixer, or even an immersion blender to make whipped cream. The key factor is knowing when to stop whipping.
Stages of Whipped Cream
- No Peaks – The cream is still runny, but there are bubbles and it is thickening.
- Soft Peaks – The whipped cream will start to hold the lines left from the mixer, however it will not stick to the whisk when removed from the bowl.
- Stiff Peaks – The whipped cream has doubled or even tripled in volume. When you remove the whisk from the bowl, the “peak” of the cream holds its shape.
- Over Whipped – The milkfat is seperating from the water and is turning into butter.
For this Sugar-Free Chocolate Whipped Cream recipe, you want to go just past soft peaks, but not completely into stiff peaks.
