Sugar Free Low Carb Keto Champagne Cupcakes Recipe

These Low Carb Sugar-Free Sparkling Champagne Cupcakes are the perfect finger food dessert for any party, but especially on New Year’s Eve! Just 2 g net carbs!

Sparkling Sugar Free Champagne Cupcakes

It’s the day after Christmas and I’m sure with all the feasting and indulging, desserts may be the last thing on your mind. But we all know that the holidays aren’t officially over until New Year’s Day!

Whatever your plan for New Year’s Eve, this keto champagne cupcake recipe is the one you need to make for any special occasion, but especially to ring in the new year!

Making recipes without sugar, gluten and low carb is always challenging, but it’s something I am committed to doing in my own life and for my family.

For me personally it’s a way to keep sugar and carb cravings away when I abstain from all forms of refined sugars. I’ve just found it to be a better way for me to live a life of food freedom rather than moderating sugar and dealing with constant cravings and weight gain. 

The first time I made it through a holiday without giving in to everything was in 2006. I haven’t gone back to white refined sugar since and I’ve been gluten free since 2012.

I feel amazing and I maintain my weight without struggle. If you need some support going sugar free, my 5 day sugar detox challenge and/or my Sugar Free Fresh Start course can help!

Carbs in Champagne

According to Cronometer, the app I use, 4 ounces of Prosecco, Sparkling wine, has 2.9 grams of carbs and 83 calories. So it is definitely keto friendly and can be enjoyed. 

For our keto sparkling champagne cupcakes, we use 3 ounces for the whole recipe with 12 cupcakes. Each cupcake, not including the buttercream frosting, has 4 grams of total carbs or 2 grams net carbs.

Keto Vanilla Cupcakes

This recipe can easily be adapted from cupcakes to just a vanilla cake or champagne cake if you prefer. You can leave out the champagne and use unsweetened vanilla almond milk or another non-dairy milk in its place. 

I had visions of this festive dessert in my head for weeks before even Christmas came! There’s certainly no shame or guilt in ending the year with a perfect treat like these luscious, keto sparkling champagne cupcakes!

Obviously being that these do, in fact, have real champagne, I envisioned these cupcakes to be more for the adults than the children. I’ve added some notes below for substitutions if you are making these for kids.

I brought these to my hair salon for all the ladies working and they couldn’t believe they were sugar-free, low carb and gluten free! Always awesome when people who don’t normally eat sugar-free can’t tell the difference!

Keto Swapping and Substitutions

Can I swap the Champagne?

Any kind of champagne will work in this recipe. I used Prosecco because we had it in the house. 

If you want to make this nonalcoholic, simply switch out the champagne for sparkling cider or even sparkling water will work.

You could leave any sparkling beverage or bubbly champagne and use heavy cream instead, but the alcohol bakes off when cooking the cupcakes in the oven. 

Can I Swap out the Sugar Free Sweeteners?

I combine two kinds of low carb sweeteners to help alleviate any aftertaste. I recommend sticking with a powdered low carb sweetener for this recipe.

If you don’t have liquid stevia or prefer not to use it and you don’t have Swerve, increase your choice of sugar free sweetener to at least a cup.

Here’s my Sweetener Guide and Conversion Chart.

Can I leave out the protein powder?

You do need the protein powder it helps make the texture more like traditional fluffy cupcakes and helps with it being less crumbly. You could sub egg white protein powder, but I haven’t tested it out to know how the texture would compare.

The hint of champagne gives these cupcakes a nice, light airy texture, but you really can’t taste the champagne flavor in them.

They are the perfect way to ring in the new year with family and friends! 

I hope you’re ending the year with the ones you love and may you have a fantastic year ahead of you!

Happy New Year!
