Coconut milk is a creamy, white liquid made from puréed coconut flesh.
The nutritional breakdown of 1 ounce 30 (mL) of plain canned or fresh coconut milk is about 7 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of carbs, and 0.5 grams of protein.
Roughly 90% of the calories in plain coconut milk come from fat, with the remaining 10% coming from a combination of carbs and protein. Still, the carb content is low enough that you shouldn’t have any problem fitting it into a keto meal plan.
Regular canned or fresh coconut milk is naturally high in fat and low in carbs, making it perfect for a keto diet.
Regular, unsweetened coconut milk naturally contains lots of fat and minimal carbs, making it a great option for most keto meal plans.
However, certain varieties contain added sweeteners and may not be appropriate for a keto diet.
Meanwhile, low fat versions are technically keto-compliant, but you’ll be missing out on the naturally high fat content that traditional coconut milk provides.
Thus, your best bet is to use full fat, unsweetened coconut milk to add fat and creaminess to your favorite keto recipes.
