My non-keto sister is obsessed with Nestle’s Coffee Mate, Italian Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer. While I’ll begrudgingly admit that it does taste quite good, the Coffee-Mate creamer is loaded with sugar and hydrogenated soybean oil, not to mention, it has 5 carbs per tablespoon. And seriously, who the heck uses only one tablespoon of creamer in their coffee?!
Coffee is my morning bliss, so I came up with my own keto creamer that really hits the mark!
Nothing is better than a steamy, creamy cup of morning coffee. Try this keto coffee creamer recipe for a happy and balanced, keto-lovin’ morning!
Start your morning off right with a blissful cup of creamy keto coffee!
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I use Almond Breeze or Califia Farms)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (30%-40% cream)
2 tablespoons erythritol, powdered (OR try my new fave, Allulose)
1-2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
15-20 drops liquid stevia, optional (depending on how sweet you like your coffee)
Mix all ingredients together using a whisk or small hand blender/frother OR pour it into a storage container and give it a few good shakes.
Store in an airtight jar or bottle in the refrigerator. Creamer should keep for up to two weeks (when prepared with freshly opened whipping cream and almond milk).
Shake well before each use.
I personally prefer about 2 oz (4 Tbsp) of creamer to every 6-8 oz of medium-roast, freshly brewed coffee.
When using Allulose for my sweetener, I typically use 3 tablespoons and skip the stevia.
Tip: Sometimes I add Monin brand sugar-free syrup to my creamer mix instead of stevia. YUM!

If all else fails, use tried and true heavy cream. Just remember that heavy whipping cream typically has around .5 carbs per tablespoon and the carbs can add up quickly if you’re a multi-cup coffee drinker. (Especially if you like an uber-creamy cup of joe!)
Add some healthy fat!
As you know, the keto diet is fat fueled, so feel free to add a teaspoon or tablespoon of healthy fat to your already creamed coffee. This “fat bomb” method is very filling and is a great way to start your day with a good dose of wholesome fat!
Here are some of my recommended fat-fueling products:
Calling all sugar-addicts! If you love adding flavored syrup to your coffee, today’s your lucky day! I absolutely worship Monin brand sugar-free coffee syrups. (I find it at my local grocer for around $7/bottle.) My favorite sugar-free flavor is almond!
Wishing you all a good morning…
And a great cup of coffee! ENJOY! ☕️
