Free Printable: Low Carb & Keto Food ListGet It Now
One of the most common questions I get in our keto support group is, “what is the best keto coffee creamer?” And while many people on a keto diet opt to drink bulletproof coffee in lieu of creamer, many others (myself included!) just really wanted a regular low carb keto friendly coffee creamer. So, here it is! Skip the weird, artificially sweetened options at the store – this homemade sugar free coffee creamer is super easy to make!
Oh, and did I mention that you can make this keto coffee creamer recipe into 5 different flavors?! Whether you prefer yours plain or fancy, I have you covered.
Many commercial coffee creamers are loaded with sugar and corn syrup, and many of the sugar-free options contain weird ingredients and artificial sweeteners. Not this low carb coffee creamer! It uses Besti Powdered Monk Fruit Allulose Blend for a naturally sweet taste, plus it dissolves completely to keep every sip smooth — all with 0g net carbs.
Ingredients & Substitutions
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for sugar free coffee creamer, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
- Sugar-Free Sweetened Condensed Milk – You can’t buy it at the store, but it’s easy to make yourself with just 3 simple ingredients: Butter, heavy whipping cream, and powdered Besti. It acts as the base for the creamer.
- Unsweetened Almond Milk – This helps to get the keto friendly coffee creamer to just the right consistency. Unsweetened coconut milk beverage would also work for a nut-free option. (Be sure this is the liquid kind in a carton, not the thick kind in a can.) Dairy milk is not keto friendly, so I don’t recommend it.
- Heavy Cream – This adds rich and creamy flavor, and also helps with consistency, so it’s not too thick.
- Flavors – You didn’t think I would leave you with just a basic keto coffee creamer, did you? You totally can, but you can also add in flavors like vanilla extract, hazelnut extract, pumpkin puree, and cocoa powder for flavored sugar free coffee creamer. You can also make my sugar free peppermint mocha creamer for the holiday season.
VARIATION: Make it dairy-free and vegan!
To make this keto creamer dairy-free and vegan, use full-fat coconut milk (the kind from a can) in place of the heavy cream, including the cream used in the condensed milk and the part that is added later. Omit the butter in the condensed milk, or replace it with ghee if you can tolerate it.
How To Make Keto Coffee Creamer
This section shows how to make sugar free coffee creamer, with step-by-step photos and details about the technique, to help you visualize it. For full instructions, including amounts and temperatures, see the recipe card below.
- Make the condensed milk. In a saucepan, make sugar-free condensed milk according to the instructions here.
- Add milk and cream. Whisk in almond milk and cream. If making pumpkin creamer, add pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. If making chocolate creamer, sift the cocoa powder over the pan. Whisk to combine. Heat briefly, until the ingredients incorporate and mixture is smooth.
TIP: The exact amount you get from this keto coffee creamer recipe will vary depending on how much you reduce the condensed milk.
If you reduce the condensed milk too much, add more almond milk and heavy cream at the end to get it to the desired consistency.
- Stir in extracts. Remove from heat. Mix in the extract(s). Taste the keto coffee creamer for sweetness while still warm, and add more powdered Besti to taste if desired. Serve immediately, or chill.
TIP: Expect thickening as creamer cools.
It will seem thin while warm, but it thickens in the fridge.
VARIATION: Collagen creamer!
If you want a collagen boost, add it directly to the creamer while it’s still warm. (I like this brand.) The amount to add is up to you. I’d recommend starting with 3-4 scoops for the batch of keto coffee creamer. You can also add collagen directly to your coffee.
How To Use Keto Creamer For Coffee
This keto creamer recipe is super easy to use — simply add it to black coffee! I recommend starting with 2 tablespoons, and increase to taste as needed.
- Store: Keep in a glass jar or bottle in the refrigerator for up to 7-10 days.
- Freeze: Pour the low carb coffee creamer into ice cube trays. Once frozen, transfer the cubes to a freezer-safe container or bag and store for up to 3 months. You can thaw in the fridge overnight, or simply add the ice cubes to piping hot coffee and let them melt.
Sugar Free Coffee Creamer To Buy
If you want to skip the prep time altogether, there are lots of keto-friendly coffee creamers — including dairy-free and shelf-stable options:

- Nutpods – With a squeaky clean list of ingredients, this zero-carb liquid creamer froths up just as well as conventional types. Get them in tasty flavors like French vanilla, caramel and hazelnut!
- Natural Force Creamer – A sugar free creamer that tastes like half and half, but made with coconuts and MCT oil.
- Super Coffee Creamer – This low carb coffee creamer is sweetened with monk fruit and has a little extra protein in each serving.
