Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups Heavy cream
  • ½ cup Unsweetened Almond milk
  • cup Monkfruit blend sweetener
  • 2 teaspoon Cocoa powder
  • ¾ teaspoon Instant espresso
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 cup Jameson Irish whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon Almond extract

Instructions

  • Combine cream, almond milk, sweetener, cocoa powder, espresso powder and salt in a medium saucepan, whisking well to combine.
  • Heat JUST to a simmer, whisking constantly, until all sweetener crystals have fully dissolved.
  • This is important, there should be no crystals in sight, even on the sides of the pan!
  • Remove from heat, allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Place cooled cream mixture into a blender, along with the whisky and extracts. Blitz for 5-10 seconds.
  • Transfer to an airtight bottle or jar, chill for at least 2 hours before drinking.

Notes

8 grams of the carbs - per serving - are from sugar alcohols, so 1 gram net carbs per serving.
Servings are based on approximately 2 oz pours.
Also: Please read the main post for important information about making liqueur with sugar substitutes!
