How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 1 each Atkins Cafe Au Lait Shake
  • 26 grams Ginger Root
  • 2 29/48 grams Cinnamon stick (1 stick= 1.3 g)
  • 1 19/24 gram(s) Cardamom pods (1 pod= 0.2 g)
  • 0 19/24 gram(s) Cloves, whole (1 clove= 0.2 g)
  • 3 grams Allspice
  • 0 1/2 teaspoon Whole Black Peppercorns


Ingredient note: all spices used in this recipe should be in their whole form, including the allspice (3 g whole allspice= 1 teaspoon).

  1. In a small saucepan over medium low heat, warm Atkins Cafe au Lait Protein Shake until steaming, but not simmering (roughly 145°). Thinly slice the ginger and gently crush the cardamom pods. Add the spices to the steaming shake and stir to distribute. Cover, reduce heat to the lowest setting (remove from heat if simmering) and steep over very low heat for 20 minutes. 
  2. Remove from heat and steep for another 20 minutes. Strain out the spices, evenly divide between two mugs and enjoy!

The art of making chai tea typically uses spices in their whole forms as described in this recipe, however you can simplify and speed up this recipe by warming the shake to steaming, removing from heat, adding one or more chai tea bags (such as Bigelow Spiced Chai) and steeping, covered, for 5-10 minutes. Note that using prepared tea bags will add to the overall caffeine content.
