Low Carb Milk
THM Friendly (S)
I know I’m not the only one who misses a rich, creamy cappuccino. Dairy milk has protein, carbs and fat so it’s a wonderful food for growing calves and little people – not so when one is watching their weight. So if you have missed milk – keep reading!
About this Recipe
By jove, I think I’ve done it! And with only 2grams of carbs per serve!
You all know how I have been on my quest. A quest to satisfy my daily habit. I have tried everything – almond, cashew, coconut, sunflower, flax, hemp and blends but none of them have been able to satisfy me.
Until now. The inspiration came to me while making the instant cookie dough protein bars which are yummy and hit the spot. So I experimented and I still may not fully be there yet but I think so. This has been in the works since mid November and now I’ve learned to tweak it each time I use it depending upon my needs for that time.
I won’t lie, it is calorific. But it is an S and as low/moderate/high in protein as you make it. You can customise the recipe depending upon your budget, taste, dietary needs, etc. Leave out the Sunflower Lecithin if you don’t have it. Use 1/2 TB of WPI and 1/2 TB of Collagen Peptides if you’d prefer. You can even use 1 TB of cream if you find 2 TB too heavy for you. This is similar in composition to a Rich Trimmaccino but I don’t much like the texture or taste of MCT in my beloved coffee. I also tried to make it similar in composition to normal dairy milk… it comes pretty close except my recipe has more protein, more fat and less carbs so quite different really.
And it texturises just like dairy or soy milk when you’re making a beloved cappucinno! BUT it isn’t dairy milk! It is dairy though, just not dairy milk.

- 1/8 tsp Sunflower Lecithin
- 1 Scoop (30g), 100% Whey Protein Isolate – Natural Flavour
