A simple ricotta based, sugar-free frosting for muffins, cupcakes, cakes and sweet breads.
With just 4 ultra simple keto-friendly ingredients, you’ll be frosting a keto treat in no time!
It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare this ricotta frosting. Whip it up with a hand blender, immersion blender with whisk attachment or in a food processor. It takes keto baking to the next level with a rich layer of silky buttercream frosting.
Thick and Creamy Ricotta Frosting
Apply the frosting ahead of time or just before serving. It will firm up a little in the fridge as it chills but is just as delicious. Give a squeeze of lemon juice or add in 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, ½ teaspoon ginger powder and ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom for a spicy chai flavor. This would be very similar to the Chai Spice Buttercream Frosting from my keto baking guide: The Ultimate Guide to Low-Carb Baking.
Use this creamy sugar-free ricotta frosting anywhere a traditional cream cheese frosting might be appropriate. Be sure to whip it well so the sweetener mixes completely into the cheesy butter and the ricotta lumps get smoothed out!
Sweetening Whipped Ricotta Frosting
I use LAKANTO’s Golden formula because it is an excellent, quick and convenient way to sweeten keto foods. These “sugar” crystals blend into the butter and ricotta just like white sugar would. I love the formulation of the LAKANTO products because there is never a bitter aftertaste! My family never liked stevia sweetened recipes for this exact reason. The Monkfruit Sweetener is a great alternative for those who are sensitive to erythritol/sugar alcohols or any other artificial sweeteners.

In this podcast, I learned all about the way LAKANTO is made and the specific attention to quality taken by the company. I’m so appreciative to be able to link up with a company that hold such high levels of integrity and provides such a useful product to those interested in cutting out the sugar from their diet.
