This low carb vodka chata is a delicious drink similar to Rum Chata. It uses vodka and low carb ingredients for a tasty winter drink.Recently while at “book club” at my sister’s house I had the pleasure of tasting Rum Chata. I had not ever heard of it before but boy was it tasty! It’s like a warm, spicy white Russian. Anyway I really liked it and when I got home I thought, “I can make something similar to that and make it low carb.” Rum Chata by the way is based on a drink which is a mixture of rice, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and dairy and is called a horchata. On Rum Chata’s website they say “Rum & Horchata had a love child and it’s delicious”. I agree.
There is not much to this as I’m not using rum, rice or sugar. The main ingredients of this drink are vodka, almond milk, cream, cinnamon, fresh nutmeg, vanilla and stevia. Just add them to a blender or shaker and serve over ice. It’s nice. Even my hubby liked it and he’s not much of a creamy drink person.
Low Carb Vodka Chata
The amount of vodka that you use is up to you. I would advise using a middle shelf vodka but I would say that for most drinks. There are only 0.6 net carbs in this drink. I personally only have one…ok maybe two as it is a drink you like to sip and tastes like dessert. I hope you like this as much as I do and if you don’t care about carbs I recommend going out and buying some Rum Chata. It’s really good!
- 1 oz middle shelf vodka (more if you prefer)
- ½ cup of almond milk (I use Silk Unsweetened Almond for less carbs)

- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
- vanilla stevia to taste (or sweetener of your choice)
