Sugar Free Whipped Cream
Long before my days of health focused eating and following a ketogenic diet, I loved to make homemade whipped cream because it is super easy, fun to make, and always kid approved!
I mean honestly, who doesn’t love a little whipped cream surprise on top of dessert? I know I do!
In my family, we have an old family banana pudding recipe, topped with whipped cream, of course, that is absolutely to die for. It was that recipe that taught be how easy it was to whip up a batch of homemade whipped cream.
As you know, long gone are the days of sugared desserts in this house, but thanks to some experimenting and keto-ing, the dessert is still a family favorite: Keto Banana Pudding … and this whipped cream is the perfect topping for it!

Add Ingredients to a bowl. Add your 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 squirt of stevia into a medium-sized mixing bowl
Beat. Beat together with an electric hand-mixer until soft peaks form (2-3 minutes).
Transfer to a serving bowl. That’s it! Now what your whipped cream is done, transfer it to a serving bowl, drop a spoonful on top of your favorite dessert, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Questions you may have:
Is whipped cream keto?
Yes! Whipped cream can be keto-friendly if you take out sugar and substitute it with natural sweeteners. Most whipped creams call for sugar to give it that fan-favorite taste. So, if you aren’t following this recipe and are looking to buy store-bought, make sure to check the ingredients!
What are “soft peaks”?
When whipping, you will see soft or stiff peaks referenced in recipes a lot. Soft peaks mean when you lift the beaters up from the whipped cream, a peak forms. In this recipe, we want soft peaks which means the peak forms, but it is soft and barely holds this shape. You don’t want it too soft though because then you will just have melty cream.
Can you make whipped cream in advance?
Yes, but not too far in advance! There is nothing better than fresh whipped cream served on top of a warm dessert!
How long with homemade whipped cream last?
Homemade whipped cream will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, do not exceed 4 days. After the 3-4 day mark, you will find that your whipped cream starts to revert back to a liquid form.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 tsp Vanilla Cream Stevia
- Add the heavy cream and stevia into a medium-sized mixing bowl
- Beat together with an electric hand mixer until soft peaks form
- Transfer whipped cream to a serving bowl, drop a spoonful on top of your favorite dessert, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
It is possible to whip this TOO LONG and end up with butter,
