Keto Coffee Creamer Recipe (Creamy and Sugar Free)

Although I love black coffee, there are certain days when I crave a little sweet treat. Traditional coffee creamers are full of sugar, carbs, and calories. How can you satisfy your sweet tooth without all of that added sugar?

If you are looking for low-carb coffee creamer options to liven up your coffee drinks, we have some excellent (and tasty) options.

Creamers Alternatives You Can Have on Keto

If you are hoping for something you can keep on hand and dump into your morning coffee, these might fit the bill for you.

  • Almond Milk: You can keep multiple kinds of almond milk in your refrigerator to add to coffee and other keto recipes. There is plain unsweetened almond milk and chocolate and vanilla almond milk. An added benefit is almond milk is a dairy-free option.

  • Full-Fat Coconut Milk: Many people prefer a creamer to have the richness and fullness of store-bought creamers, and full-fat coconut milk will give you that. In addition, coconut milk adds a lovely coconut cream taste to the coffee.

  • Heavy Whipping Cream: Another popular choice for those eating keto is to add heavy whipping cream to their cup of coffee. It is low carb, but it also has added fat that helps keep those cravings at bay while keeping you in ketosis.

Can I Have Coffee Mate Sugar Free Creamer on Keto?

Coffee Mate makes some excellent sugar-free creamers that, while sugar-free, can kick some people out of ketosis.

Any creamer (or any other produce for that matter) made with sucralose can have a negative impact on a keto diet and should be enjoyed in moderation (even if they are low in carbohydrates).

Many excellent sugar-free coffee creamers are not best for ketogenic diets. Make intelligent choices about the artificial sweeteners you use. For example, choose monk fruit over aspartame or sucralose products.

Can I Use Half and Half on Keto Diet?

Half and half is not the best choice when following a keto diet. However, using it in moderation can be okay and allow you to stay in ketosis.
