Can You Use Heavy Cream On Keto?

Balance is essential if you’re following an eating plan.  Or, if you’re just winging it and enjoying life as it’s served to you.  It doesn’t matter who you are or what type of eating philosophy (or not) you follow.  Everyone enjoys what they enjoy.  The keto diet is no different.

Although you may be giving up some of the carb-laden meals you once enjoyed while on your keto journey.  Finding balance in tasty ways is one strategy of sticking with it.

Now, I know not everyone feels that heavy cream is a splurge.  But, it is to me and that is one reason my taste buds were thrilled to experiment with this recipe.

Heavy cream or HWC as it’s commonly referred to in the keto community is ultra-low in carbs coming in around 2 grams per 1/4 cup.  As with any successful eating or maintenance plan, calories are an important factor.  1/4 cup of HWC will total around 205 calories.

So, yes!  You can use heavy cream on keto but do so while keeping your eye on the full picture of your daily or weekly nutrition plan.

Cream And Chicken Have History

I know you’re picturing a few of your favorites as you’ve just read those words.  Two that popped into my mind were creamy chicken pot pie and decadent creamy chicken alfredo.

It’s the latter that inspired me to add chicken meatballs to this keto recipe.

So What Can I Do With Heavy Cream, You May Ask?

The answer is a lot, outside of coffee and the mental picture of your favorites.

You’re on Tiktok, right?  Isn’t everyone these days?  There is an account that I follow and he prepares low-carb dishes.  His name is chefbob8 and as I write this, he has over 500 thousand followers and over 6 million likes on his videos.  That’s enough clout for me to pay attention!

It was his sausage alfredo with cabbage that caught my eye.  Well, my belly really.

Chefbob8’s method has him preparing a full cabbage in a vessel that he cooks on the grill.  He also grills sausage links to add to the dish.  Now, there is nothing wrong with sausage.  This girl can eat and I love me some sausage.

But calories – it’s always important to keep calories in check.  I had leftover ground chicken so I decided to make mini chicken meatballs to add to my protein goals and to keep the calories a bit lower.  I can’t say it entirely worked.  As this recipe was over the top delicious and I (may) have had an extra portion.

So, what can you do with heavy cream?  Add it to cabbage along with sausage and chicken meatballs.

Keto Recipes With Heavy Cream And Chicken And Sausage And Cabbage

That’s a mouthful!  But when I tell you this is easy, it’s easy!  We all love easy.

Cabbage Alfredo

Swap cabbage for carb-heavy pasta and this satisfying dish is easy to prepare and keto friendly.


  • 1/2 cup HWC
  • 1/4 cup Butter, sliced
  • 1/2 Cabbage, shredded
  • 1 T Garlic, minced
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 5 ea Italian sausage links
  • 1/2 pound Ground chicken
  • 1 ea Egg
  • 1/2 cup Keto bread crumbs
  • 2 T Dry Italian seasoning
  • Splash heavy cream
  • 2 T Olive oil
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a box, mix the ground chicken with the egg, keto bread crumbs, the Italian seasoning, and a splash of heavy cream. Form this mixture into small meatballs.
  • Cook the sausage links and chicken meatballs in an oven-safe dish like a cast iron pan with olive oil. Turning each every 10 minutes until cooked both are fully cooked. These can be made the day before.
  • Place the butter on the bottom of a baking dish and top with the cabbage, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and heavy cream. Stir to combine. Cover with foil and bake for 30 - 45 minutes or until the cabbage is tender.
  • Remove the cabbage from the oven and stir in the parmesan cheese. Next, add the sausage and chicken meatballs and give the dish one final stir.


The portions within this recipe should yield about 4 servings.  Calculate the total carbs and calories based on the size of your serving and the amount of sausage and chicken meatballs in each.  But whatever you do, you must try this.  It's so good!  Thanks for the inspiration chefbob8 from TikTok!
