Low-Carb Chocolate Whipped Cream Recipe Notes and FAQ
Everything should be cold.
Use extremely cold heavy whipped cream for best results. You can even chill your mixing bowl if you choose.
Which type of sweetener is best?
You can use granular or confectioners sweetener but if you want it super silky, use confectioners. I suggest Swerve confectioners for best results.
Adjust the sweetener to your taste.
Feel free to use more or less sweetener. Depending on how long you’ve been on the keto diet, your taste buds may find the suggested amount too sweet.
