Finding a good Whole30 compliant almond milk or coconut milk can be tricky. Check out this easy peasy Low Carb Whole30 Almond Coconut Milk Creamer recipe.
The best keto creamer ever: Low Carb Whole30 Almond Coconut Milk Creamer
Finding a good Whole30 compliant low carb almond milk or coconut milk can be tricky. Then, once you find a brand you like, you practically need a second job just to keep you stocked up on your favorite nut based milk substitution. I have no idea why I waited so long to make my own dairy free low coffee creamer recipe. Once I realized how easy it is and finally gave it a try, there was no going back. Not only does it save money, but it is the healthiest, cleanest version of keto almond/coconut milk you can find. Making it yourself is definitely the way to go. I was looking for something I could use as a non-dairy creamer and to make a perfectly creamy low carb protein shake. This fits the bill for both of those perfectly.
how can you use this Low Carb Whole30 Almond Coconut Milk Creamer?
This low carb almond coconut milk is perfect for low carb protein shakes, keto coffee creamer, dairy free cooking, and anything else you might use milk or heavy cream for. Since I was primarily using it for coffee creamer and for protein shakes, I made it thicker. It is the consistency of heavy cream. For a thinner version similar to a 1 or 2% milk, simply add more water.
Helpful equipment for this keto creamer recipe:
- Liquid Measuring Cups
- Nut Bag or Cheese Cloth
- High Powered Blender or Food Processor
- Mesh Sieve
- Glass Jar for Storage

Low Carb Whole30 Almond Coconut Milk Creamer

What do you do with the left over almond fiber?
I love the idea of making my own almond milk, but here in Canada, its cheaper to buy my favorite brand (Silk or Blue Diamond, both from Costco, and I stock up when it goes on sale every few months). One day when almonds and cashews go on sale, I'll have to make my own nut milks!
However, I've heard that some of the mainstream brands of almond milk don't have as much almond in them as you might expect. Also, they like to add vitamin D2 to the formulation. They think they're doing us a favor, but we can't actually *use* vitamin D2, we have to convert it to D3, and I don't think we're very efficient at that.
The soaking the almonds overnight cuts down on phytate too. We don't know whether industrial almond-milk makers take that step or if they just go right on ahead and make almond milk out of unsoaked almonds.
So there are arguments for doing this even if it's a little more expensive.
