Keto Caramel Macchiato

January 09, 2020



Keto Caramel Macchiato

One of the great things about the keto diet is that, eventually, it helps curb cravings for sugary carbs but with a caveat: You have to lay off the refined sugars and high-carb foods long enough to get there.

Going cold-turkey on sugar is a legit challenge, but it doesn’t have to be all suffering and sacrifice. Most people get that going keto—and adapting a healthier lifestyle overall—should mean choosing things like moving more, eating real foods, managing stress, and sleeping more. But… does it have to mean drinking your coffee black or with unsweetened coconut milk? 

We feel you on this one. Daily coffee drinkers—fiercely loyal to the habit—are often loathe to change their brand of coffee beans (or coffee shop they frequent) let alone the amount of dairy and sugar they add to the caffeinated, bitter beverage. If you’re a lover of the sexed up coffee milkshake (a.k.a. frappuccino, macchiato, or syrupy flavored lattes), and are looking to cut down on the sugar in your diet, you’re in for a treat. Our keto caramel macchiato has just 8.5 grams of carbs per drink—compare that to the 35 grams of carbs in the same drink at the coffee shop with the green mermaid logo. 

Keto Caramel Macchiato

Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 2

Ingredients

To make the keto caramel:

To make the coffee drink:

*You can replace espresso with 4 ounces of strong drip coffee. 

Equipment

  • Milk frother

Instructions

To make the keto caramel:

Keto Caramel Macchiato

  • In a small saucepan over low heat, heat Nutpods Caramel Creamer. Add vanilla collagen fuel, and whisk until smooth. 
  • Add Swerve and pinch of salt, and continue to whisk. Turn heat up to medium high. 
  • Bring mixture to a boil, whisking continuously, for one minute or until sugar granules are dissolved. 
  • Remove caramel from burner and transfer to a heat-resistant container. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes until the caramel comes to room temperature. Use immediately.
  • This makes more caramel drizzle than you need for two caramel macchiato drinks. Store the remaining keto caramel in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Remove the caramel from the fridge, allow it to come to room temperature, then whisk well before using.

To make the coffee drink:

Keto Caramel Macchiato

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, add ½ cup Nutpods Caramel Creamer, 2 scoops Primal Kitchen Vanilla Collagen Fuel, and ½ cup water. Whisk until smooth and warmed through. Set aside.
  • Pour drip coffee or espresso shots into the bottom of two mugs. 
  • Pour an even amount of the creamer, collagen, and water mixture on top of the coffee in each mug.
  • Use a milk frother to incorporate air into the remaining ¼ cup of Nutpods Caramel Creamer until it’s light and frothy. If you don’t have a milk frother, use electric beaters.
  • Spoon an equal amount of frothed creamer at the top of each mug. Drizzle the keto caramel sauce on top of the frothed creamer on each mug.
