Sugar Free Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting made with just 3 ingredients!!!
Are you thinking, "Oh geez not another peanut butter recipe?" Or are you thinking, "YES, ANOTHER peanut butter recipe!!?"
I'm obviously into peanut butter lately from the last few recipes posted but I just can't help it because I've got some really good ones to share! Also because Father's Day is around the corner and my hubby is a peanut butter lover himself, this recipe and the one to follow is basically a gift to me...I mean HIM, wink wink 😉 !
Sure you might say it looks exactly like really creamy peanut butter from a jar. Well, it might but it's NOT.
Real, no sugar added, nothing else added to it, peanut butter from a jar looks oily on top and clumpy and needs plenty of stirring to get it smooth like this.
This here is FROSTING and not just any frosting but BUTTERCREAM frosting. Do I have your attention now? Sure this could easily be done with heavy cream and made into peanut butter whipped cream frosting but that's not what my hubby likes. He likes buttercream and buttercream is what he's getting. At least for Father's Day anyway. On top of Peanut Butter Cake! Did I mention that?
So just when you might be thinking I'm over the peanut butter recipes, I'm not. This frosting is going to top and incredible cake that will literally knock your socks off. I mean you will take one look at it and will be shocked it's completely grain free, sugar free and low carb. But that's to come, more on this frosting recipe.
Whip it up well, taste and decide if you need more sweetener and then spread on whatever you fancy. Or grab a spoon but be careful this is hard to resist!
If Swerve isn't your sugar free sweetener of choice, use whatever you like to sweeten. Just use about ¼ cup of any granulated sugar free sub then taste and adjust. Most other sugar free granulated sweeteners are much sweeter than Swerve. Fair warning: I did try this with granulated erythritol and it was gritty, tasty, but gritty.
