This is one of the simplest recipes you could ask for. The ratios I have used result in my preferred consistency for using in cooking as well as in a drink.
Thickened cream – This is also known as heavy cream.
Water – The ratio of water to cream can be adjusted if you’d like your keto milk thinner or thicker.
Sweetener – This is an optional addition, but if you prefer slightly sweet milk, add a bit of your preferred sweetener. I use Sukrin:1, but any sweetener of choice that has a ratio of 1:1 with sugar would be the perfect choice.

What are the best milk substitutes on a Keto Diet?
Which keto diet milk to use really does depend on personal taste.

Hot Tips & FAQs
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 at all to make, I prefer to make it as I need it.
Being dairy-based milk, the benefit is none of the aftertaste you can get from nut or non-dairy milk, which is a treat after getting accustomed to going without dairy!
No, it doesn’t! How amazing is that!
No, it isn’t. Milk contains around 12 grams of carbs per cup. Milk contains more sugar than cream.

I had no idea this was possible… and so easy! Thanks for sharing this… now I’m off to make another latte with this great keto milk!
My daughter has been trying to keep a very strict keto diet for quite some time and I think she would love this. Thanks for sharing!
Who knew it was so easy to make it yourself at home? A great way to save money.
Wow! I had no idea you could even do this. Very clever. Thank you!
What a great idea! This will come in handy when I’m cutting carbs, and after this week of indulgence, it may be time to do just that. Thanks for sharing!
This is perfect, I didn’t even think of doing this!!
Thanks Megan – had to have another morning latte just to test it out and it was awesome!!
This sounds fabulous and way easier than I would have thought! Can’t wait to give it a try!
Keto Milk is so genius! Love the idea of getting to have some of the creaminess in beverages without breaking the diet!
Wow this is such a creative idea! Sometimes I want to add something to my tea, but cream is just too much. This seems like it would be perfect!
This is a perfect milk for those who follow a keto diet. I’m going to share this with my friends.
I don’t follow keto diet so I’m not sure how this is different than say…homogenized milk. Is there less sugar? Anyway, it sure looks like it makes amazing lattes!
I didn’t realize how easy it is to make your own! So great to keep on hand.
What a great idea to make your own! Love that you can use it for so many things.
I had no idea this was a thing! What a great idea!
I love how quick and easy it is to make and that it can be used in exactly same way as regular milk would be. Brilliant!
Omg this is so cool! I didn’t even know there was a keto friendly version of milk – I could see this being a great substitute when you want a true “milk” feel and not just heavy cream!
This looks so quick and easy – just as good as milk!
is it g or ml?? you’ve written it both ways…
