Cocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is made by crushing cocoa beans and removing the fat or cocoa butter. There are loads of health benefits from consuming cocoa powder. For example, cocoa powder is high in polyphenols, may improve nitric oxide levels, and may improve mood.

Milk or Cream

Similar to the butter aspect of (has gotten a bad name through misrepresentation), heavy cream can provide incredible flavor and the right balance of texture to nearly any recipe.

Keto Chocolate Icing

Keto Chocolate Icing

Ever notice words that you think have the same meaning actually have a slightly different meaning?

What is the difference between icing and frosting?

Icing is thinner than frosting. However, there’s an additional term (or word) used and that’s a glaze. A glaze is even thinner than icing. So in all it goes in order of thickness: Frosting > Icing > Glaze.

Icing is typically made with sugar (powdered) and some type of liquid, usually water or milk. In this recipe, the “sugar” is derived from an alternative sweetener.

Icing can be drizzled or spread. Also: Icing has more of a shine and smoother consistency than frosting.

  3. Add the chocolate sauce, Allulose, and cocoa powder. Continue to whip until well incorporated.

Any unsweetened cocoa powder would work well here, even Hershey's. Just be sure that the only ingredient is cocoa powder, no added sweeteners.
