The wonderful thing about the Keto diet, is how easy it is to truly make this lifestyle change once you decide to commit to it. In my opinion, the biggest reason it’s so easy: keto dessert.
When you know that you can have delicious sweet treats in moderation while still remaining in ketosis – it really does makes all the difference.
Baking a compliant Keto cake is so easy and when you’ve got an equally complaint Keto Cream Cheese Frosting to top it with – there’s absolutely no compromise in flavor.

Is Honey Keto?
The general consensus is – no. The good news is, that for this cream cheese frosting you can use whichever sweetener you like.
For my own family, I prefer to use raw honey, as there is (in my opinion) no substitute for whole raw ingredients. I’m personally not a fan of artificial or processed sweeteners, and exclusively use honey as my sweetener of choice.
Although, if you are on Keto for any medical reason, or weight-loss – you can feel free to substitute the honey in this frosting for with any sweetener that complies to your personal dietary requirements.
Since there is no standard way to convert between sweeteners, with variations in the same sweetener between brands. The best way to get it right is to put your tastebuds to work. Start with a little bit and keep adding until it tastes right!
