When it comes to whipped cream, nothing beats the real thing. You can try all the sugar free substitutes out there, but they're usually full of strange ingredients and just don't taste as good as homemade. That is, until now!
Since I created this sugar free whipped cream recipe I've enjoyed putting it on SO MANY of my favorite desserts. It's great on fruit, sugar free hot cocoa, and even ice cream or pie when I feel like indulging!
The basic process for making this sugar free version is no different than making regular whipped cream. The only difference is this recipe is made with a Monk fruit powdered sweetener. I use Lakanto and it measures and tastes just like regular powdered sugar, plus there's no gross aftertaste.
Is There Sugar-Free Whipped Cream?
Yes, there are some sugar free whipped creams you can buy in the store. However, they're usually full of artificial flavors and preservatives, which I don't like to eat if I can avoid.
That's one reason why I made my own! There's only 3 real ingredients in my recipe and it tastes so, so good as well.
What's The Difference Between Heavy Cream and Whipping Cream?
There actually isn't any difference between the two! Despite the different names, they're exactly the same, just named differently depending on the brand that is selling the product.
There is however, a difference between heavy cream and whipping cream. Whipping cream has a lower fat content (30-35%) as opposed to heavy whipping cream that must contain at least 36% fat. Whipping cream won't form stiff peaks, so you want to use heavy cream when making homemade whipped cream.

Sugar Free Whipped Cream Ingredients
- Stand mixer or Hand mixer
- Large mixing bowl
- Heavy cream: I really like the Horizon Organic heavy cream, but any that your grocery store carries will work
- Powdered sweetener: My two favorite brands are Lakanto and Purecane. Both are naturally derived sweeteners, and give a smooth, not gritty texture
- Vanilla extract: The vanilla adds the perfect note of flavor, you could also use vanilla bean paste
How To Make Sugar Free Whipped Cream
- Place your mixing bowl and beaters into the freezer for 10-15 minutes before you start
- After the equipment has been chilled, pour a cold cup of heavy cream into the chilled bowl and begin to beat with an electric mixer. Start on low speed so the cream doesn't splash, but quickly work your way up to medium speed
- When your cream reaches soft peaks, turn the mixer off and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and powdered sugar substitute
- With the electric mixer, turn the speed up to medium/ high and beat the cream until you have stiff peaks
- Serve immediately over your favorite dessert and enjoy
- Keep everything COLD: Whipped cream turns out best when mixed in a cold bowl with chilled beaters.
- Store cream in the fridge: Keep the heavy cream in the fridge right until you're ready to whip it
- Soft Peaks: Whip until soft peaks, then add the rest of the ingredients for the smoothest texture
- Use the right sugar: Don't use regular monk fruit or stevia that is processed like regular sugar, you want POWDERED sweetener
- Don't Overmix: If you overmix your keto whipped cream it will turn into butter
If you're looking for some variety, here's some fun ways to enhance your dessert!
- Chocolate- add 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- Lemon zest- add 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- Lime zest- add 1 tablespoon lime zest
- Orange zest- add 1 tablespoon orange zest
- Strawberry- add 2 tablespoons of crushed freeze dried strawberries
- Almond- add ½ teaspoon almond extract
- Cinnamon- add ½ teaspoon cinnamon
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. I think the best way is to keep it in a Mason jar and then just spoon out what you want when you need it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Traditional whipped cream isn't suitable for the Keto diet because it contains sugar. However, this sugar free version would be suitable for anyone on it to serve over their favorite keto desserts.
Unfortunately you can't re-whip it unless it's under whipped. If you have stiffed peaked whipped cream and you try to re-whip it you'll just end up with butter.
No, you can't. Milk doesn't have a high enough fat content and will not form stiff peaks. You have to make this with heavy cream or it won't work.
