Ingredients

  • ¾ cup 180 ml coffee, brewed the way you like it
  • 4 tbsp 60 ml heavy whipping cream

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Make your coffee the way you like it. Pour the cream in a small sauce pan and heat gently while stirring until it's frothy.
  2. Pour the warm cream in a big cup, add coffee and stir. Serve straight away as is, or with a handful of nuts or a piece of cheese.

Tip!

Add a piece of dark chocolate, with a minimum of 70% cocoa solids, to your cup of coffee. This way you'll have a melted little treat waiting by the time you finish your drink.Or try it with cinnamon as a gorgeous and luscious post-meal treat!

    It's been suggested that I could drink this iced instead of hot. How would I do that so that it still tastes good and not watered down or just like coffee I've left too long?

    I cold brew my coffee and then add that, cream and a little natural sweetener to my bullet blender. Once Whizzed up I pour it over ice and it's lovely!

    You could pour coffee in an ice cube tray and make coffee ice cubes. As they melt, they don't dilute your drink.

    i see suggestions to add cinnamon to coffee a lot but when I do it just sits on top (and finds it way to the bottom). Is there a way to actually get the coffee to absorb the cinnamon or is this the way it should be?

    Hi Yasmin!

    Yes, but I think not more than one or maybe two cups a day. :)

    Can this be consumed in the 14 day starter plan?

    Thank you peter - how about with a piece of 99% cocoa chocolate (lindt)? also is sugar free cordial ok to drink during the starter period?

    Hi Jasmin!

    A piece of 99% chocolate is OK ... But just a little bit of advice, try to focus on what you should eat. :-)

    I have 2 rather large cups of coffee with sugar free salted caramel syrup / unrefined organicTrader Joe’s Coconut oil andhave started adding whipping cream. It tastes SO yummy however could it be stalling my weight loss as that’s a LOT of cream in 2 coffees? I am trying whippingcream instead of half n half as itszero carbs.. yet past 2 weeks have only lost 1 lb ( first 2 weeks I lost 12 & believe it’s the cream OR Macadamia nuts I’m eating I eat a 1/4 cup a day .. too much huh? I’m eating lunch cheese / eggs/ tuna salad mayo / lots of fresh veggies salad zucchini lots of water! Coffee is my treat fills me up for hours.

    Add to that fish grilled shrimp / chicken and steak plenty of protein.

    The cartons of double cream here in the UK state that there is .5g of carbs per 30ml (2 tablespoons). So that is only 1g per 60ml, not 2g as you state in this recipe.

    Ground the cinnamon and mix it with your ground coffee. Really ideal if you use a moka pot!

    Skimmed milk? Ugh!! 😂 change to semi-skimmed at least - I went from skimmed to full fat and use much less.

    Can I replace the 60ml of cream with 15ml MCT oil and 15ml unsalted butter?

  19. Kristin Parker Team Diet Doctor
    Yes, that would work. You may want to be careful with the MCT oil, many people find it upsets their digestive system.

    I drink two cups of coffee a day with flavored creamer frothed. Starting keto diet, should I switch to heavy whipping cream frothed and what sweetener can I add?
    Reply: #23
  21. Kristin Parker Team Diet Doctor
    Yes, heavy cream is a much better option. We do recommend avoiding sweeteners as much as possible. We have good information about why on our visual guide page (with options that would be better than sugar).

    Ugh! You drink instant coffee not real coffee? You can't brew real coffee cold no more than make a cup of tea cold! Peris.h the thought! Ha, ha! Best to make a jug or large cafetiere of real coffee, let it go cold, put it in the fridge overnight for the next day. At ice if you want. Hood luck. This time of year need hot drinks and hot food. Too cold in England for salads!

    Hi Cat, I'm lactose intolerant and find that whipped cream is ok in small portions.
  26. Andrea
    I add some cinnamon and other spices to my ground coffee so that it all brews together. You get the flavor without having the spices just clump up in your drink :)

    Skimmed milk has the highest carb loading of all the types of milk available

    Hi.
    I use Amul Fresh Cream and sweetener to make a cup of cold coffee in the morning. Is it Keto friendly?

    Hi.

    Amul is a low fat cream. You want something that is very low carbs and high fat. For sweeteners, you can review our sweetener guide here to make sure you are choosing a keto friendly option.

    I use 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream per 16 oz. coffee, daily. According to the package labeling of all heavy whipping creams I have purchased (mostly grass fed where available) there are zero carbs.

    Why does your recipe list 2 carbs for the cream?

    All heavy cream has carbs due to the remaining lactose. If it's under a certain amount, the manufacturer is allowed to round all the way down to 0g.
