Keto Almonds - Glendas Farmhouse

All good keto enthusiasts should consider the macros of any unfamiliar food before consumption, even almonds. Maintaining ketosis requires the perfect balance of macronutrients – very low on carbs and higher on protein. Let’s explore almonds in terms of their macronutrients and viability as a keto food, and allow us to suggest that you purchase them from Glenda’s Farmhouse.

Glenda’s Farmhouse, as a branch of Andersen & Sons Shelling, has great experience growing good food for the American table. As we have branched out following the merger with Western Nut Company, we endeavor to incorporate quality goods, fair pricing, and fast service into every transaction.

The Low-Carb and Keto-Friendly Nature of Almonds

Sticking to a keto diet can be difficult without finding handy foods that can be easily grabbed and enjoyed. Almonds are one of these foods, but they can also be used for culinary purposes to create keto-friendly versions of dishes forbidden on a keto diet.

The Carb Count for Almonds

The total amount of carbohydrates within a ¼ cup serving equals 7.6 grams, but much of that total is fiber! The actual net carbs of that same ¼ cup is a much lower 3.2 grams. Roasted almonds are similarly appropriate for keto diet plans. A ¼ cup of roasted almonds equals 7.4 grams of total carbs and 3.5 grams of net carbs.

As an easy reference for keto followers, consider the following:

  • ¼ cup of raw almonds = 7.6 grams of total carbs = 3.2 grams of net carbs
  • ¼ cup of roasted almonds = 7.4 grams of total carbs = 3.5 grams of net carbs
  • 1 oz. of smoked almonds = 5 grams of total carbs = 2 grams of net carbs
  • 10 almonds = 2.6 grams of total carbs = 1.1 grams of net carbs
  • 1 oz. of raw almonds = 6.1 grams of total carbs = 2.6 grams of net carbs

The Magic of Almond Milk

Are you a keto follower who misses milk in your coffee or as a drink? Unsweetened almond milk is a popular, tasty alternative, but you can make your own for an even better taste, clean ingredients, and the option for flavoring.

Glenda’s Farmhouse is a quality supplier of the raw almonds that you’ll need to make your nutritious, keto-friendly almond milk.


  • ½ cup of almonds (raw and unsalted)

  2. Add the ground nuts, water, and salt into a blender. Blend until creamy (30 seconds to 1 minute).
  3. Use a cheesecloth or specially made nut milk bag to strain out any nut pieces.
  4. Pour the milk back into the blender, adding flavoring if you’d like, and blend for another 30 seconds.
  5. Store this almond milk in an airtight container for a maximum of three days. While the liquid will thicken and settle, you can shake it and add water as needed.
