Do you know how to make a White Russian? Typically it is made with Kahlua, Cream, and Vodka.

This Skinny White Russian Recipe is amazing and delicious! We have swapped the cream for soy creamer and added a caramel rim to kick this classic cocktail up a notch and take down the calorie count. Enter the Skinny White Russian!

We all have our favorite cocktail. Whether it be margaritas, sangria, or martinis, it’s nice to have a skinnier version to fall back on when you don’t want to drink ALL of your calories for one day! I’ve always had a soft spot for creamy drinks, especially at the end of a long hard week. (HELLO FRIYAY!) The problem with creamy drinks is…the CREAM. It’s not enough to just substitute skim milk in place of heavy cream, because it’s just not the same.

As much as you tell yourself it is…it isn’t. I want that texture that makes me feel like I’m sipping on a dessert, after all! Lucky for me, and all you fellow White Russian lovers, this Skinny White Russian has all of the creaminess and none of the guilt…it’s a total win win!

How did this White Russian Recipe get the name “White Russian”?

It’s as simple as the main ingredient being vodka. Seems a weak comparison to me, but I do love the drink! It’s a creamy, dreamy, delicious, and EASY cocktail recipe!

I can hear you all yelling, “THIS IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!?”. Well folks, its not! I made this Skinny White Russian with Soy Creamer…with only 20 CALORIES PER SERVING. That being said you should still drink it responsibly, one is enough! :) I have been a huge lover of Silk Almond Milk for years, but had never tried their creamer. WHY? I was really missing out.

It’s the perfect add-in to recipes, your morning coffee, cocktails, or anything else calling for heavy cream. It comes in some great flavors like Hazelnut Soy, Caramel Almond, and Vanilla Almond, but I chose to go with the Original Soy Creamer. You can’t go wrong here, you’ll never miss your heavy cream. It makes these Skinny White Russians just the guilt free Friday treat I was needing. #SilkCreamer for the win!

The White Russian Recipe became especially popular when “The Dude” drank them regularly in the popular movie, “The Big Lebowski”.

If you haven’t tried a White Russian, now is your chance! Your guilt free chance! A White Russian with Milk is good…but a White Russian with Soy Creamer is that much better!!

When you make this, please put the ice in first. I of course don’t mind a mess in the name of a fun picture, but you shouldn’t try this at home. The pictures following this one were MUCH messier!

You can also make this classic cocktail into a mocktail by leaving out the vodka, and substituting the coffee liqueur for cooled coffee. It’s just as delicious, trust me! It’s the perfect way to unwind on any day, not just Fridays! And with Silk Creamer by our side, we no longer have to feel so guilty.

I cannot use Soy. Is there something else other than cream I can use?
    Erin
    Try coconut creamer. Trader Joes has a tasty one.
    Becky Hardin
    Yep, you can use Silk's Almond Creamer as well! I just tried their soy but they have regular vanilla almond creamer that would be totally delicious in this if you can't have soy. Hope you enjoy!
    Amber Jones
    I can't use soy OR dairy so use Silk Almond Milk Creamer :) I also use that in my coffee!
Kimberly @ The Daring Gourmet
As always, absolutely stunning pictures!
Susie Gall
Awesome work, Bec. Love it all!
Renee - Kudos Kitchen
I do love that fun shot with the ice and the splash. It's a winner for sure! And, because these are skinny versions of a white Russian, I think I'll have two :)
Laura / I Heart Naptime
Yum, yum, yum! Cannot wait to try this!

Is this sponsored or funded by Silk? It would be nice if that was clearly expressed. I like to know if recipes are personal vs corporate-sponsored. Otherwise it feels like sneaky advertising. I was linked here by another site, so I have no idea if this is commonplace here.
    Amber Jones
    There's a clear sentence after one of her paragraphs stating such.
    Amber Jones
    Here's what the statement says: ''This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Silk. The opinions and text are all mine.'' Nothing sneaky here. :) Whether opinion or Corp-sponsored, it's still a great recipe and Silk is a good brand.
Sabrina
What a great way to enjoy a cocktail favorite without the tax on your waistline!
Krista
Wow! I love this drink and I love your pictures!

There is 96 calories in a shot of vodka and 90 calories in a shot of khakis so there is no way there is only 20 calories using soy milk unless you are leaving out the liquor...give me a break!
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Nan- I wasn't trying to say the drink itself only has 20 calories, I was saying the soy milk is 20 calories per serving. This is just a way to enjoy a white russian with less calories, but you're right they're still not calorie free. Hope you have a great night! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found something you like, even if it wasn't this.

When I make a white russian I always put lemonade instead of cream as I can't drink cream is that still called a white russian
    Becky Hardin
    I think you created your own awesome recipe! I think you get to name it as its your invention. Sounds yummy! :)
