This sweet and delicious low-carb creamer is for all of us coffee lovers! It's just what you need to make the perfect keto coffee.

For me coffee is not just about the caffeine — after 4 pm I only drink Swiss water decaf anyway. I just love the taste of coffee but I can't drink it black, so apart from plain cream or almond milk I make my own flavoured coffee creamer by adding spices, vanilla extract or even cocoa powder. If you're like me and don't like your coffee sweetened, you can skip the sweetener in the keto condensed milk.

If you can't have dairy, simply swap the condensed milk with my dairy-free condensed milk recipe, and heavy whipping cream with coconut milk. If you want to make it nut-free, just use water instead of the almond milk, or use any seed milk (poppy seed milk is delicious!).

Ingredients (makes one 240 ml/ 8 fl oz jar)

Coffee Creamer:
  • 1/3 cup keto condensed milk (80 ml/ 2.7 fl oz) - recipe below
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
Keto Condensed Milk:
  • 1/2 stick (4 tbsp) butter (57 g/ 2 oz)
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream (480 ml/ 16 fl oz)
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (480 ml/ 16 fl oz)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar substitute such as Lakanto or Sukrin Gold (80 g/ 2.8 oz)
Flavour options (per 240 ml/ 8 fl oz jar):

Note: for dairy-free coffee creamer, use our dairy-free Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk instead of the above condensed milk recipe, and coconut milk instead of heavy whipping cream (in the coffee creamer). Instead of brown sugar substitute, simply use Swerve or Erythritol.

Instructions

  1. First, prepare the low-cab condensed milk. Place the butter into a sauce pan. Cook over a medium heat until it starts to foam and brown. This will take just a few minutes and you should keep an eye on it to prevent burning. Browning the butter will enhance the flavour. Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways
  2. Pour in the cream and almond milk. Don't panic when you see the butter floating on top at first. Add the sweetener and mix until well combined. Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways
  3. Bring to a boil over a medium-high heat. Once it starts simmering, turn the heat down to low. Reduce the liquid to about half of the volume. This will take 30-45 minutes. You should get 2 to 2 1/2 cups of condensed milk. Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways
  4. When done, remove from the heat and set aside to cool down to room temperature. Blend using an immersion blender until smooth and creamy (this will help remove any clumps). Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways
  5. To prepare the coffee creamer, pour 1/3 cup of the prepared condensed milk into an 8-oz (240 ml) jar. Add 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy whipping cream and 1/4 cup (60 ml) unsweetened almond milk. You can repeat this step for more jars if making more flavours. Store any leftover condensed milk in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to a week. Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways
  6. Add the flavouring of your choice (I like cinnamon) and cover with a lid. Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways
  7. Shake until smooth and frothy. Note that it will be easier to combine if you use room temperature or warm condensed milk rather than refrigerated condensed milk. Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways
  8. Pour in your coffee or tea and enjoy! Low-Carb & Keto Coffee Creamer Five Ways

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi, I sent a question over a wee ago but haven't heard back so thought I would try again. I tried making the condensed "milk" but it never did condense, even after several hours of simmering so I finally gave up and threw it out. I did use hemp milk instead of almond milk, could that be the problem? I was hoping to get some feedback before risking it again as it's a little pricey to have to waste. Thanks for all you do!

Hi Catherine,  I'm sorry for the delayed response. I was travelling and missed this comment! I only simmered it for about 45 minutes on low. The only thing I can think of is that the heat was not high enough for it to evaporate/simmer? I don't think hemp milk should be an issue - it should work with any nut or seed milk. I used almond milk that had no thickeners in it, the ingredients were just almonds and water. The dairy cream I used is about 40% fat. I hope this helps!

I tried making you creamer today. It turned out well it tastes good, but that sure is a lot of condensed milk left over. If it only lasts a week, the leftovers will end up going bad. Is there a way to decrease some of the ingredients or do you think maybe i did something wrong?

Reply

That's correct, there is quite a bit of leftover condensed milk. You could either freeze it in an ice cube tray or try other recipes with it:
Homemade Low-Carb Baileys Irish Cream
The Best Keto White Chocolate
Keto Key Lime Poke Cake
No-Churn Keto Cookies & Cream Ice-Cream
For future you could halve the condensed milk recipe - I hope this helps!

Is it possible without doing the keto condensed milk but mix up the rest for the creamer? It seems like its the same stuff anyways besides the butter. Just wondering.

Reply

Hi Sandra, the flavour is more concentrated but I suppose you could keep it super simple by only mixing cream with almond milk and your favourite spices 😊

Hi, I am wondering if I can use just regular swerve sugar replacement instead of the brown sugar replacement ?

Reply

Hi Kristine, feel free to use any other low-carb sweetener! Erythritol, Swerve, monk fruit, stevia - all will work. You can use more or less to taste.

Does this freeze OK? I have a mind to freeze in ice cubes and just use as and when needed?

Reply

I'm not sure. I haven't tried freezing it - it may separate once thawed.

Reply

I too am curious about freezing, has anyone tried it?  If separation is the only issue I wonder if after thawing re-blending/immersion will work to re-combine?  Maybe even re-heating and then blending to re-combine?

I have been looking for a coffee creamer and yours sound delicious, but we can't have any nut products in our house. How do you think it will come out if I use heavy whipping cream or can you think of another alternative beside nut base products? Thank you!

I think you can either use water (you will need to dilute it a little) or you could try light coconut milk (pouring, not canned), or seed milk. I like milk made from poppy seeds - it takes just a few seconds to make (blend & strain) and takes great: Complete Guide to Homemade Nut and Seed Milk

Where did you get the cute little lid that has a pour spout? That looks like it would be really handy.

Reply

It is! I got it from Lakeland (UK) but you should be able to find it on any Amazon 😊

I just made this recipe (using your sweetened condensed milk recipe also) and I can't wait till the morning to try it in my coffee!!!  I used the basic recipe and added almond extract to give it an Italian Sweet Cream type flavor.  Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

That's a nice one, I need to try it with almond extract! 😊
