Nothing paves the way for a productive day more than a great cup of coffee. This Keto Coffee Creamer is energizing and satisfying all at once. Best of all, it takes just minutes to make. Let’s get this day started, shall we?
Raise your hand if you couldn’t dream of starting your day without a cup of coffee.
I get up extra early so that I can enjoy my morning coffee in peace. It is an integral part of my self care.
Can we all agree that giving up coffee on a keto diet isn’t an option? And black coffee? No thanks!
(I tried, I did. But I could never acquire a taste for it.)
Though I do enjoy Bulletproof Coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil, some days I crave a little bit of sweetness and something more like what I used to drink before I started watching my carb and sugar intake.
The good news is that this sugar-free Keto Coffee Creamer tastes every bit as good as traditional creamer while remaining low carb, keto-friendly, and gluten-free.
You can even use it in your favorite iced coffee!
Ingredients for Making Keto Coffee Creamer Recipe with Heavy Cream
- Heavy Whipping Cream - I use Organic Valley; whatever brand you choose works, but I always recommend checking nutrition labels as the carb count can vary. To make a dairy-free keto creamer recipe, use canned coconut milk. (Make sure you re-calculate the nutritional information if you are tracking macros.)
- Almond Milk - Make sure you use unsweetened! If you aren’t concerned with total calories, you could also use more heavy cream. (This is also a great way to keep this recipe nut-free.
- MCT Oil - This is optional. I find that MCT oil leaves me feeling great and can help me get into or stay in ketosis.
- Sweetener - If you don’t like sweet coffee, you can omit this. (Or adjust the amount to your personal preference.
- Vanilla Extract - Use a good quality - it will make a difference in the end taste. You can also use vanilla powder.
Tips & Tricks
- If you use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, you can eliminate the vanilla extract if you like.
- If you would like to make a mocha, add ½ tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder per cup of coffee and blend well.
- Feel free to swap out the vanilla extract for other flavors. Peppermint, hazelnut, and caramel are all great options. Just be sure to start with a quality extract - I have found that some that are less expensive leave an unpleasant aftertaste.
