In general though, we recommend against drinking sweetened beverages.
The 2g in the green circle in the recipe picture indicates 2g net carbs. For calories and other macro information, click the Nutrition+ tab under the list of ingredients. In Keto, we do not recommend counting calories.
Heavy cream is recommended because it is lower carb and higher fat than half and half. For many people, the lactose in the half and half would affect blood sugar and insulin too much.
Yes, that would be fine, but it may change the carb count a bit.
"Keto" refers to percentages of macros, not specific ingredients. This has 93% fat!
Just add coffee grounds to cold water and let it "brew" in the fridge for 8h (or more; make it the night before). Then strain - I use an aero press but others use cheese cloth. I find it as good as my morning coffee and it doesn't need cream or sweetener but these are optional. I also suggest adding more coffee grounds than a usual drink would require. I use decaf so I can drink this in the afternoon.
Many easy to follow recipes are available online. Once you do cold brew, you will never drink a cold, hot-brewed coffee again.
All heavy cream has carbs. (Manufacturers are allowed to round down on their labels when the carbs are less than 1 per serving.) Heavy cream has about half a carb per tablespoon. There are 4 tablespoons in 1/4 cup, so that gives you 2 carbs.
