Milk (Keto)

Homemade Keto milk is easy and cheap to make and tastes just like natural milk, with only 2 grams of net carbs per one (1) cup serving.

Why I Love This

This seriously is the best milk for keto. If you are not dairy-free and love milk in your coffee or tea, you will love this low-carb milk recipe. Only 3 ingredients you will most likely already have at home.

Simple – With the ratios already worked out, and using just three ingredients, this takes no time to make.

Low carb and tastes great – 2 grams of net carbs in a serving and this milk tastes so much better than most keto milk.

The Ingredients

This is one of the simplest recipes you could ask for. The ratios I have used result in my preferred consistency for use in cooking as well as in a drink.

Thickened cream – This is also known as Anthony’s Heavy Cream Powder.

Water – The ratio of water to cream can be adjusted if you’d like your keto milk thinner or thicker.

Salt flakes – Use Salt Flakes as the flavor is more pronounced.

Sweetener – This is an optional addition, but if you prefer slightly sweet milk, add a bit of your preferred sweetener. I use Whole Earth Stevia & Monk Fruit, but any sweetener of choice that has a ratio of 1:1 with sugar would be a perfect choice.


How To Make Keto Milk

Making keto milk is as simple as adding all the ingredients to a glass or jar and giving it a stir or a shake to combine.

Use it just as you would normal milk, or drink on its own! 

This keto milk alternative is also perfect for baking, breakfast, or even in an ice cream recipe.

What are the best milk substitutes on a Keto Diet?

Which keto diet milk to use does depend on personal taste.

I love this keto milk made with heavy whipping cream the most for many of the above reasons. It is still keto milk with dairy, so really is just much lower in carbs.

Tips & FAQs

Can I make and store keto milk in advance?

Yes, you can make up a larger amount and store it in the fridge, just as you would with normal milk. As it takes no time to make, I prefer to make it as I need it.

What is the benefit of this milk instead of nut or non-dairy milk?

Being dairy-based milk, the benefit is none of the aftertastes you can get from nut or non-dairy milk, which is a treat after getting accustomed to going without dairy!

Does this milk curdle in tea or coffee?

No, it doesn’t! How amazing is that!

Is milk keto-friendly?

No, it isn’t. Milk contains around 12 grams of carbs per cup. Milk contains more sugar than cream.

The best in low-carb milk alternatives.

There are many keto milk substitutes. Some you may like more than others for different uses such as baking, a cup of tea, or frothing milk for a latte or cappuccino. 

Here are some of the best keto milk alternatives other than this recipe.

Unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened coconut milk, hemp milk, and macadamia milk are just a few examples of keto-friendly milk with a low carb count.

This keto milk recipe is the best-tasting keto milk alternative for coffee, in my opinion. It doesn’t curdle. It froths well like whole milk. And it doesn’t take weird. 


Thickened or full-fat heavy cream is the main ingredient. With the addition of salt flakes and water, it is amazing how tasty this keto milk is.  


The recipe makes just one cup but you can make it in larger quantities and store it in the fridge. As it takes no time to make, I prefer to make it as I need it. Store it up to the best before the date of the cream used.
