From what I have heard from friends and read online about the Keto Diet, many followers crave sweets + I hear them. I love something sweet and I am no stranger to dietary restrictions.

One of my go-to baking tricks is adding frostings or glazes. Not every baked good needs it, but when you want to add more sweetness (or occasionally cover up an imperfection…Shh!), a frosting is the perfect solution.

Plus frostings are quick and easy, making them ideal for last minute cravings. :) Just whip this up and top your favorite gluten-free or Keto muffins, loafs, or whatever else strikes your fancy.

Gluten-free, Keto Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup Confectionary Swerve (or powdered erythritol), additional to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (no added sugar)


  1. With mixer, cream together cream cheese and butter until well combined and fluffy.
  2. Slowly beat in the Confectionary Swerve and vanilla until incorporated.
  3. Taste test the frosting, adding additional Confectionary Swerve to preference.
  4. Then beat on high until fluffy, roughly 2-3 minutes.
  5. With spatula, spread the frosting on desired baked goods.
  6. Store remains in airtight container in fridge, bringing to room temperature before using.
