1 So Delicious Original Coconutmilk Creamer
Coconut milk creamer (just like coconut milk itself) is a great option for keto dieters because it has zero carbs, says Nora Minno, R.D., a New York-based registered dietitian and personal trainer.
Keep in mind, though, it’s not terribly high in fat—so it won’t really encourage ketosis, but it won’t knock you out, either.
Per 1 Tbsp serving: 15 calories, 1 g fat (1 g saturated), 0 g carbs, 0 g sugar, 10 mg sodium, 0 g fiber, 0 g protein
2 Keto Coffee Creamer
Left Coast Performance’s keto creamer contains three major keto staples: ghee butter, MCT oil, and coconut oil, says Minno. So, basically, it’s an amped up bulletproof coffee. But the creamer comes with a to-do: You’ve gotta blend it. “It’s loaded with healthy fats, which means if it’s not blended, the oil will separate from the coffee,” according to the product’s website.
Begin by adding 1/4 of a tablespoon to your morning coffee, and work up to one tablespoon, per the creamer’s instructions.
Per 1 Tbsp serving: 120 calories, 14 g fat (11 g saturated), 0 g carbs, 0 g sugar, 0 mg sodium, 0 g fiber, 0 g protein
3 Original Keto Coffee Creamer
Here’s another keto-specific coffee creamer loaded with ghee, MCT oil, coconut oil, and alternative sweeteners. Unlike the low-fat and low-carb creamers, this creamer (along with Left Coast Performance’s creamer) will up your daily fat intake and help you stay in ketosis, says Minno.
Per 1 Tbsp serving: 120 calories, 14 g fat (10 g saturated), 0 g carbs, 0 g sugar, 0 mg sodium, 0 g fiber, 0 g protein
4 Heavy Whipping Cream

Okay, so heavy whipping cream isn’t exactly a creamer, but it’s still a good option for the keto dieter’s coffee since it’s packed with fat, says Minno.
Whipping cream can be pretty thick (as the name suggests), so Minno suggests making it a little smoother by mixing a bit of it with water before pouring it in your brew.
Per serving: 50 calories, 6 g fat (3.5 g saturated), 0 g carbs, 0 g sugar, 5 mg sodium, 0 g fiber, 0 g protein.
5 Lactose Free Half & Half Cream

Technically, half-and-half has milk in it (hence the name—it’s equal parts milk and cream), and milk is pretty high in sugar. But Minno says this lactose-free version by Organic Valley can definitely be keto-friendly in moderation. At just one carb per two-tablespoon serving, it won’t knock you out of ketosis and still gives you a ton of fat.
Per 2 Tbsp serving: 40 calories, 3.5 g fat (2 g saturated), 1 g carbs, 1 g sugar, 10 mg sodium, 0 g fiber, 0 g protein
