    Anything with oats would spike me. Alpro almond no sugars milk may be a better alternative for you. Test to your meter though.

    I can't tolerate oat milk as it is much too high in carbs for me. I have full fat cow's milk in coffee, but use much less than I used to when using skimmed milk. For cooking I use coconut milk or double cream.
    I do like cashew milk and buy organic cashew milk when it's on special offer but I tend to avoid almonds and almond milk if it comes from the USA (all those fires in California when the almond farms are taking extra water plus all the chemical sprays they use).

    At 56gm of carb per litre it is rather high carb.
    What do you use it for?

    I like this milk. No carbs in the blue striped one and a good amount of protein. Tastes good frothed up in coffee and heated up for keto “porridge” too.

    We've been using this milk. Claims to have half the carbs. Still tastes like regular milk to me.
