When You Don’t Want Half and Half

When I published my first video about How to Make a Healthy Powdered Coffee Creamer, I was thrilled with how popular it was. But the one request that I received over and over was: “How do I make a Keto version of this?” That’s a great question! And the good news is that it’s quite easy to do.

To make a powdered coffee creamer that’s Keto friendly, you can’t use powdered milk. You can’t even use a combination of powdered milk and powdered cream. (Most Keto enthusiasts don’t approve of any type of milk when it comes to following the Keto diet.)

However, when used alone, powdered cream or powdered heavy cream makes the perfect ingredient to create a Keto powdered coffee creamer!

What are the Different Types of Alternative Keto Sweeteners?

Now, if you just want to use powdered heavy cream in your coffee, you certainly can. It’s a great product to keep in your pantry in case you run out of regular heavy cream in your fridge or if you want to be able to take some “cream” for your coffee with you when traveling.

But what if you want your creamer to have a sweetness like the beverages you enjoy at your favorite coffee house? In that case, you have plenty of options for turning your powdered heavy cream into a sweet treat—but one that is basically carbohydrate-free and calorie-free!

After taste testing and experimenting with different alternative sweeteners, I like Allulose the best. I was surprised at what a clean flavor it had with no after taste. But everyone’s palate is different, so in my recipe video, I go over all the sweeteners that I taste-tested and discuss their pros and cons.

I talk about the following Keto approved sweeteners in my recipe video.

  • Allulose
  • Allulose Monk Fruit Blend
  • Erythritol
  • Monk Fruit
  • Erythritol Monk Fruit Blend
  • Stevia
  • Stevia Inulin Blend
  • Xylitol

(NOTE: If you can’t find these products at your local grocery store, I have links to them in my list of favorite Keto Powdered Coffee Creamer Making Supplies.)

All these alternative sweeteners have a low glycemic index. They are also low in carbohydrates and calories. Some sweeteners have a cooling or minty taste, a few can upset the digestive system for some folks, and others actually prevent tooth decay! I recommend that you taste small amounts of each and see what agrees with you and what taste you enjoy the best for your creamer.

Customize Your Keto Coffee Creamer Ingredients

If you want to flavor your powdered coffee creamer, that’s where the fun begins (or continues, as it’s fun to pick your sweetener too). Here are just a few of the additional ingredients you can add:

  • Vanilla-flavored Keto approved sweetener or vanilla powder
  • Different spice mixtures (such as pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice)
  • Dried mint
  • Cocoa powder
  • Cocoa powder AND espresso powder for a delicious mocha coffee creamer and an extra kick of caffeine! (Wow!)

With my printable recipe, you can try out these ingredients and others that you may enjoy for a tasty treat during holiday time or anytime you’d enjoy a special beverage.

Storing Your Powdered Creamer

In my recipe video, I talk about how you can store your Keto coffee creamer in a mason jar with an airtight lid. If you live in a very humid climate, you can include a food-grade silica gel pack in the jar with your coffee creamer to help keep out moisture. Watch the following videos to learn more about storage options and the difference between oxygen absorbers and silica gel packs.

      What vanilla powder do you recommend?
      Thank you,

      1. Mary's Nest says:

        Hi Chan,

        Thanks for your comment.

        I’ve had good results using both the Laird Plain Coconut Powder and the Laird Vanilla Coconut Powder. I’ll add links to them in the products section of this recipe post.

        I hope that helps you.

        Love and God bless,

    2. Margaret Woods says:

      Hi 👋. It doesn’t state how much sweetener to add to the 3 cups of powdered cream 🤷‍♀️

      1. Mary's Nest says:

        Hi Margaret,

        It depends on which sweetener you’re using and its equivalency to sugar. I suggest that you experiment, starting with the smallest amount equivalent to 1 cup of sugar. Mix it well, and then try it in a cup of coffee. Then adjust it accordingly to the taste you like.

        I hope this helps, and thanks for your comment.

        Love and God bless,

      Thank you so much for this recipe, Mary. Love your channel. I am wondering if I can substitute MCI powder for the heavy cream powder? Or use a combination of the two? I am doing keto successfully but need to back off of the dairy fat. Thank you for sharing!

      1. Mary's Nest says:

        Hi Sherri,

        I have not tried MCT powder, but it’s certainly worth a try.

        Thanks for your comments and kind words!

        Love and God bless,

      Love you videos! Been hunting for a keto friendly powdered coffee creamer to replace store bought powdered creamer. Can’t wait to try the powdered creamer and allulose – now to find the powdered heavy creamer – thank goodness for Amazon!

      1. Mary's Nest says:

        Hi Pamela,

        I am so happy that this creamer can be helpful to you on your Keto diet. And I think you will really like the Allulose. I was thrilled to find that it does not have an aftertaste like so many of the other no-carb Keto friendly sweeteners.  Enjoy!

        Love and God bless,
