So I tried using Coconut Cream in my Keto Chow instead of Heavy Cream. It works but it wasn’t very pleasant.
Since many people do Keto Chow at a higher calorie amount (2000 calories a day instead of 1300) I decided I would try using enough coconut cream to hit 2358 calories/day to see if it’s something that a rational person would try. I’ve done keto chow at the same calories before, it was more creamy but otherwise wasn’t very different from the 1300 cal version.
So I ended up using 250ml of coconut cream in one blender bottle, it filled more than half of the bottle by its self. It mixed up OK but after letting it chill out for a few hours I tried it. It was thick, like crazy thick, like nacho cheese sauce thick. After I drank about 1/4 of the bottle I added more water to dilute it a bit. The coconut flavor came through pretty strong (I used vanilla Keto Chow) and wasn’t very pleasant. I finished the bottle but it’s not something I want to ever do again. So while it’s possible to replace heavy cream with coconut cream, unless you really like the taste of coconut and only want 1100-1300 calories a day I would recommend against it. It also costs quite a bit; the 250ml I used works out to be $5.65 (for just the coconut cream alone!).
