Full question: If one is dairy sensitive is there a substitute for cream on the classic ketogenic diet ?

Reply: Unsweetened non-dairy milk such as Coconut Milk is a good alternative and although it is not nearly as high in fat as cream, you can mix oil into it such as coconut oil. So Delicious and Trader Joes are 2 brands that are quite low in carb. Another option is Liquigen made by Nutricia. It looks like cream but is an emulsion of medium chain fat. This can be mixed into unsweetened coconut, flax or almond milk.
