I am excited to share the super simple Low Carb White Russian with you! It’s thick, creamy and gorgeous in the glass.
It has a festive look to it and it’s also the Big Lebowski’s favorite drink.
If you don’t know who the Big Lebowski is…check out the link and watch the movie too. It’s a grand little adventure with Jeff Bridges.
- Cold Brew Coffee – * or strong brewed coffee if you don’t cold brew.
Cold brewed coffee is excellent in this cocktail that usually calls for sweet liqueur.
Use a good quality vodka and you can skip the booze to make a a “virgin” version.
- Allulose – *to taste.
Add as much or as little as you like.
- Heavy Cream
🍸How to make the White Russian:
1.) Add vodka, cold brew, and sweetener to a rocks glass, and stir until sweetener dissolves.
2.) Add ice ¾ of the way up the glass, and pour heavy cream over the top. Taste and adjust the sweetness of the cocktail. Cheers!
Tips & FAQ’s
Do not make this drink ahead of time.
Since you are using heavy cream, it’s best to make the White Russian right before you drink it.
How do I make Cold Brew?
Cold brewing is a delightful way to make rich, smooth coffee.
You’ll need a cold brew pitcher and 12-24 hours. If you love coffee but not the bitter aftertaste, this method is for you!
Can I use Almond or Cashew Milk instead of heavy cream to make the Low Carb White Russian?
Yes. The Low carb White Russian with heavy cream is calorie intensive. Using a sugar free nut milk will significantly lower calories but it wont be as rich and creamy.
I have gotten some mixed reviews about how the end product turns out when you skip the heavy cream…really, it’s up to you.
