Buttercream frosting

Can anyone point me to a good recipe for LC buttercream frosting or share one if they have one, please? I have been googling with not too much result, I read that you can make it substituting da Vinci sf syrup for sugar but no instructions on how to do so. tia

The best sugar free buttercream frosting I have ever tasted I found online and it is called Sugar Free Swiss Meringue Buttercream by domestifluff. Not sure if I am permitted to share the recipe on this site but if you google it you might find it.

Soobee - great compilation of buttercream recipes, thanks for the effort of putting them all in one post.

And let's not forget Jennifer's Better than Betty's Frosting:

BETTER-THAN-BETTY-CROCKER FROSTING:

½ cup Splenda Granular
4 tbsp powdered erythritol
4 tbsp whole milk powder
2 tsp cornstarch
2 tbsp sugar free syrup
3 tbsp butter, softened

In blender, combine Splenda Granular, powdered erythritol, whole milk powder and cornstarch. Add sugar free syrup and butter; blend until well combined.

Yield: ¾ cup delicious frosting. Double the recipe for 1½ cups frosting. The frosting is quite a bit nicer than some of the frostings for cakes and cupcakes that one buys in the containers with the soft plastic top (you know which ones I mean?).

Soobee, thank you so much for those recipes! Awesome!! So my next question is, I see erythritol in most with a mention of xylitol. I know I can get xylitol here but not erythritol, can the two be used interchangeably? Thank you skeeter and tweaker too you guys are so helpful xoxo
