About this deal
Next, using either a hand mixer - or stand mixer with the paddle attachment - beat together the butter and cream cheese. That doesn’t have to have a negative meaning though. Some natural things can be harmful, some refined things can be fine. Note: The nutritional information above is for the vanilla buttercream frosting using 1 cup Swerve confectioners.
And since it's so simple, it's the perfect recipe for when you're enjoying a dessert and feel like adding a little something extra to it. Making the Frosting Are you a “more cake please” type of person or more of a “gimme all the frosting” fan? I can honestly say that a good buttercream frosting is the BEST! If you’d like to try out a yummy keto version, you won’t be disappointed with this one. Erythritol has 0 glycemic index, but xylitol has a slightly elevated glycemic index of 7. This is still very good compared to table sugar, which has a glycemic index of 65, but is less ideal for keto or diabetics.Sorry, it is a little difficult to work this out because it sounds like it is a stevia/erythritol granular blend the recipe is using and I’m not sure of the ratio/amounts. Xylitol does not have the cooling aftertaste that erythritol has, and in general tastes more similar to sugar than erythritol does. In fact, these ingredients can number in the hundreds, and the extraction process often uses solvents ( 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).
Stevia contains rebaudioside A and stevioside. Rebaudioside A is responsible for most of the sweetness of stevia, although stevioside plays a role too. As I mentioned earlier, my favorite way to use this keto cream cheese frosting is by putting it on these keto vanilla cupcakes.
Oligosaccharides can comprise the simple sugars fructose or galactose, but it’s unknown which of these types Swerve contains. I’ve been using Swerve and am delighted to have it as a sugar substitute. However a host of health conscious people are taking note of a growing difficulty with sweet addiction. What next. The only sweets I have in my diet not creating a desire for more are the darker berries I mix in my whole grain and oat cereals.
