Are there alternatives to the Heavy Cream? What if I am lactose intolerant? Can Keto Chow be dairy-free?

Heavy Cream is pretty low in lactose, it has 0.4185g of carbohydrates per tablespoon (15ml) and many people who have problems with lactose are able to handle the relatively small amounts in Keto Chow, see this post for details.

If you do want to eliminate Heavy Cream there are some options you can try but you’re going to need to do a lot of calculations. I recommend using a tracking app like Cron-O-Meter to figure out how the alternatives will impact your net carbs and other nutrients. Anyway, here are some possibilities you can try:

  • Coconut Cream
  • Coconut milk (doesn’t have very many calories and has many more carbs)
  • Cashew/Soy/Almond milk – again, lacks calories and may have high carbs – even unsweetened
  • Powdered MCT or Coconut oil
  • Melted coconut oil mixed with a liquid oil (maybe avocado or olive) so it remains liquid after refrigeration
  • Avocados (blender required)
  • One Keto Chow user uses (in each shake) 1/2 avocado, 1 tsp MCT oil, and 1 tsp olive oil

If you want to eliminate dairy entirely then you’ll need to use the Keto Chow Base Powder along with a protein powder that is dairy-free: egg, beef or even soy protein would work.

    Hi Chris,

    I just noted you had the word “singltons” in your bio. You crack me up amigo. I trust you and the family are well. Thanks for Kreating Keto Chow and being a fine example of a sharing, karing, human.

      Well, when you have twins you gotta distinguish them 🙂
