This keto yogurt recipe is a breeze to make with just two simple ingredients. Learn how to make homemade low carb yogurt that’s perfect for a quick breakfast or healthy snack.
Being used to the low-fat yogurt for my breakfast, I thought I have to remove it from my life completely. It all changed when by accident I discovered that I could make low carb yogurt in one minute with only two ingredients and maybe a sweetener of choice.
I am a huge fan of yogurt because I think it is so versatile and easy to wrap any kind of recipe around it: dressings, smoothies, breakfast bowls, etc.
As you may know, we avoid low-fat foods because when the producers take the fat out add something else. In this case, they add starches and sugar to make it taste better. That means that the carbs are higher in the low-fat products.
Having too much added sugar from sources that we consider “healthy” is not what we want?
There is a variety of low carb yogurts on the market claiming to be tasty but the ones I tried weren’t extraordinary good. Every bite had a strong chemical taste.
Trying to eat whole foods here!
So what I did next? I had an idea to make a low carb because my fridge was almost empty and my stomach wanted food.
Is Yogurt Keto?
It depends! Yogurt can be included in your keto diet depending on the brand. Fruit-flavored yogurt is not keto-friendly because it’s loaded with sugar. However natural yogurt has a lower carb content and can be included with moderation in your meal plan. According to the USDA website a serving (6oz) full-fat Greek yogurt has about 6 grams of carbs.
Ingredients in Keto Yogurt
My recipe is extremely easy to make, tastes fantastic and I use it often.
The two main ingredients you’ll need:
- sour cream
- heavy whipping cream
- keto-friendly sweetener. Use either a liquid form or a powdered sweetener because we want the final product to be slightly sweet and creamy.
To make it flavored you can add 1 /2 teaspoon vanilla extract, cocoa powder, or use flavored stevia instead of the classic one.
How to Serve Keto Yogurt?
Serve the low carb yogurt with keto granola, nuts, and seeds, or with low glycemic index fruits such as blackberries, currants, raspberries etc. A chia seeds jam is also one of my favorite things to add as a topping.

How do we calculate the nutrition info?
These nutrition facts listed are determined using nutrition information from the USDA Food Database. Our nutrition facts are accurate, but if you are using different products, please make your calculations. Net carb count is calculated by subtracting both fiber and sugar alcohols because they don’t raise blood sugar.
If you make it with sour cream is it really yogurt with probiotics or is it creme fraiche? Just wondering. I’m sure I t’s delicious.
It only resembles in taste to yogurt 🙂
I love yogurt and I’m struggling because all of the GOOD tasting yogurts are high in carbs. I’m going to try this. Hopefully, it will give me my yogurt fix. Those low sugar or sugar substitutes are just not good. With this I can use sucralose which is my non sugar sweetener of choice. It doesn’t have that lingering after taste that Stevia and others have. Thanks for sharing this.
Sounds amazing- thanks so much- I’m running out to get some creams right now ?♀️ x
Using skinny syrup to flavor the sour cream eliminates the need for any type of sweetener. Just pick your favorite flavor!
Tasted great! Thank you for sharing!!
Looks great!! Can you tell me how much is a serving?? ( I see it yields 2). Also, is there any fiber? Thank you very much! ? ?
Sorry, I just found the Nutritional Analysis, which listed the serving size as 0.5 cup.
Thanks!! ? ? ?
