Peanut butter smoothie
And we’re back with the peanut butter again! Thick and creamy, making you feel like you’ve had one of those really big milkshakes, but without the tummy-trouble afterward, this smoothie from The Big Man’s World has 2g of net carbs per serving, and is totally dairy and sugar-free.
Keto blueberry bread
This is a really good tea bread option that fits with your keto and dairy-free needs. Plus, it’s totally delicious! Sweet as Honey’s recipe only has 3.9g of net carbs per slice, and you get to bite into juicy fresh blueberries every now and again; what’s not to love?!

Cinnamon swirl bread is the yummiest, fluffiest breakfast bread you’ve tasted. This version from Sweet as Honey is the perfect vanilla, cinnamon, and no dairy combo, and you can enjoy it safe in the knowledge that it’s only 2.5g net carbs per slice. And the icing is delicious!
