One of The Hardest Thing for Keto Dieters Is Sugar in The Coffee
People who follow the ketogenic diet say keto friendly coffee creamer is the best alternative to a sugar in the coffee.
"My hardest thing is sugar in my coffee," writes Kara Gaba in Keto Low Carb Support and Recipes group on Facebook. "How can I have a 'Keto coffee' when I can’t stand black coffee?" she asked today to the group members.
One option is to load up the keto friendly coffee creamer instead. Keto dieters say it's Yummy. It might take a pretty big effort and some time to get used to its taste, but eventually you will embrace the change.
"I use sugar-free syrups that I find at Marshall's or TJ Maxx. Then use cream or half and half," suggests Kelsy Bond as an alternative coffee recipe.
You don't have to drink just black coffee. You can drink coffee with sugar-free creamer. Alternatively, many Keto diet followers use sugar-free syrups.
Another choice is to use a heavy whipping cream and stevia sugar. Apparently, both are Keto approved. Some people like to use Truvia, which they say is the lesser evil of the artificial sweeteners.
But there are others, like Tummy Kapozzi in the group, who say Truvia doesn't work for them.
"Truvia is the worst to me. I like the Pyure Organic All-Purpose Blend Stevia Sweetener, but make sure if you use it to only use half or less than normal because it’s stronger then regular sugar and stevia in the raw," she writes.
Other Keto dieters use no sugar and just Premier Protein as a Keto creamer.
One detailed coffee recipe for Keto dieters
Lelila Fowler in the group says she adds a tablespoon of butter 1tbsp mct oil or coconut oil 1/4 tsp cocoa powder 2tbsp torni SF caramel syrup and 2 tbs heavy whipping cream in her Bullet blender with about 1 1/2 cups of coffee. "I only add 1/2 cup when blending and then pour that over the rest of my coffee in a large cup or to-go cup. it's really yummy and filling and frothy. Hope you like it," shares Fowler with the group members.
Some people resort to a sugar-free Red Bull as a desperate measure.
"Not that they’re the best, but sometimes a small sugar-free Red Bull does the trick for me. it's not necessarily keto. but sometimes desperate times calls for desperate measures," writes Kara GAba.
I have also read some people using heavy whipping cream and a shot of sugar-free hazelnut syrup. Or they simply go bulletproof. They say it's delicious.
Another suggestion for replacing coffee with a Keto creamer is to do it gradually.
Slowly start to reduce the amount of sweetener you use and you will become adjusted to it and eventually it will be all black.
There is also another caramel macchiato called Keto Bomb. But I don't know where you can find it. Probably a simple Google search will find it.
