Recently while at “book club” at my sister’s house I had the pleasure of tasting RumChata. 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 bet I can make rumchata drinks that are low carb”. So today I give you my low carb vodka chata drink!
Ingredients in RumChata Drinks
RumChata ingredients are essentially rum, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and cream based on a traditional drink called a horchata. On RumChata’s website they say “Rum & Horchata had a love child and it’s delicious”. I agree.
low Carb Vodka Chata Recipe
There is not much to this as I’m not using rum 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.
Can you use Rum instead of Vodka?
Yes. When I originally made this recipe I thought rum had carbs since it’s made from sugarcane byproducts. But like vodka it doesn’t have carbs and you can use that if you wish. I personally like vodka better so I used that.
The amount of vodka that you use is up to you. I would advise using a middle shelf vodka however 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.
