Keto Homemade Butter

If you’d like to make your fats a little healthier, try our homemade Keto butter recipe! It’s much easier and quicker to do than you may think. If you’re looking to get creative in the kitchen, try mixing in fresh herbs, such as basil, for a flavorful compound butter! Please note that since your homemade butter only uses salt as a natural preservative, this butter will have a lower smoke point for cooking than the store-bought product.

Spices That You Can Use for Flavored Butter

Our easy Keto butter recipe is prepared entirely plain, allowing you the option get creative with flavorings if you wish. Not only can you add fresh herbs to your homemade Keto butter, but ground spices are also an excellent choice. Why not try paprika for a smoky butter or chili for a hint of spice – perfect for melting over cooked meats and veggies. Alternatively, you may wish to create a sweet Keto butter by adding your preferred low carb sweetener and some cocoa powder or why not try blending with pumpkin spice mix. Perfect for slathering over hot Keto toast. Please be sure to adjust your macros to account for any additions.

Is Butter Keto Friendly?

High in fat and low in carbs, butter is most certainly a great Keto choice when used in moderation. It can be an excellent option for adding an extra boost of fats to meals or your Keto morning coffee. To ensure you always have some delicious Keto homemade butter on hand, you can freeze your plain or flavored butters by wrapping them tightly in plastic wrap then foil.

  • Step 1

    Add the cream and salt to a mixer with a whip attachment. Whip the ingredients until the cream separates into liquids and solids. This can take around 20 minutes to complete. First, the cream will become whipped, then it will gently separate into small solids, and then it will fully separate.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Pass the contents of the mixer through a fine mesh strainer. Discard the liquid. Use your hand to squeeze any additional liquid out of the solids. Shape the butter into a rectangle, wrap it in wax paper and refrigerate. You can store your homemade butter in your freezer for the longest shelf life. It will be easy to cut into when you’re ready to use!

    Made this and it was simple and easy. I used 2 cups cream instead of one and doubled the salt. It was better to have more volume for the whisker and scraped the bowl sides a couple times. Used high speed for 15 minutes but stand by towards the end... when it comes together as a solid it will knock the bowl around with the whisker if you don’t slow it down.
