This low carb yogurt is super easy to make and actually good for you! With just 2 net carbs (for the base), it’s the perfect way to brighten up your morning!
I’ve always been in love with yogurt. Ever since I can remember it’s been one of my favorite breakfast foods/snacks/bases for smoothies.
Unfortunately, most yogurts you’ll find at the grocery store run waaay too high in carbs. The popular brands are pretty much the same thing as eating a pile of chilled sugar.
And that’s not good for anybody.
I realized when I started cutting the carbs, I even wanted to avoid the lighter/low carb varieties. They were just disguising the bad stuff and calling it healthy.
Not a fan.
I was playing around in the kitchen the other night, and I finally came up with a yummy recipe to calm my yogurt cravings.
Low Carb “Yogurt”
It’s suuuper easy to make, delicious, and it’s actually good for you.
You just need sour cream (I know, seems a little weird, but trust me, it works), heavy whipping cream, and a sweetener like Swerve (erythritol). I used powdered Swerve so it would be smooth. Use whatever sweetener you’re used to, just add a little at a time until you get the desired taste.
Note: this yogurt BASE is 1 carb per serving. Once you add things like blackberries, walnuts, or any other toppings you desire, the carb count will definitely go up, so be careful and watch what you’re putting in closely.
It’s not a complete yogurt replacement, but it definitely satisfies my cravings.
I also added a few walnuts for a nice crunch, blackberries, and a squeeze of lemon for flavoring. Blackberries are one of the lowest carb fruits, but still remember to use them sparingly. You can also flavor your yogurt with vanilla extract or a sugar free vanilla syrup, like Torani. Just a little bit can make a big difference in flavor!
Check out my recipe and let me know what you think!
I put a tablespoon of sugar free strawberry jam. It was great.

Tonight I was looking for a low carb yogurt recipe and came across yours. It’s perfect! I added a few chopped strawberries and a touch of vanilla and I could NOT tell it was sour cream! Wonderful alternative! I will make this again.... many times

Does this recipe need to be cooked? I have seen the same recipe using a Instapot. But it does not say for how long, or give any further directions. I would love to try this recipe, but I am not clear on the directions. Any help would be much appreciated!
