Can you add cocoa powder to whipped cream?
Absolutely! I make this whipped cream with cocoa powder and sweeten it with stevia. You can probably replace the stevia with a low carb granulated sweetener if you wish, although I haven’t tried it myself. As for the cocoa powder, it’s best to use cocoa processed with alkali. It will be darker and not as bitter as natural cocoa powder.
How long does it last?
It’s best to make this chocolate whipped cream on the day you plan to serve it, and no more than a few hours ahead of time. It does keep okay for a day in the fridge, but it tends to lose some of its fluffiness.
But is it healthy?
It’s a dessert, so it shouldn’t displace more nutritious foods in your diet. But as far as desserts go, yes, I believe it’s healthy. This keto chocolate whipped cream is made with just 4 wholesome ingredients. I believe that stevia is very safe. And happily, current research says that for most healthy people, full-fat dairy is harmless, although I would still eat heavy cream in moderation.
