Keeping up with all the intricate details of the keto diet is hard. Especially when it comes to your daily coffee intake. People are always confused about which sweetener to use, which milk is appropriate, and is it even okay to drink coffee on a keto diet. Well, my ultimate low-carb keto sweet iced coffee is all you want on your keto diet to satiate your caffeine cravings. It’s not just a healthy brew, it will keep you fresh and satiated for a longer time. Healthy, sweet yet low carb – I say it’s a win-win situation for every health-conscious coffee lover.
Since my friends and I started keto diet I have been experimenting with different recipes to make a perfectly healthy substitute for my normal energizing coffee. We coffee lovers around the world know how important it is to take our daily intake of caffeine. It’s like the energy juice that keeps us going.
This recipe is carefully made with all the right ingredients for all the healthy coffee lovers out there. Who knew there is a drink that’s sweet but still low in carbs and keto-friendly? It is all about the type of carbs that you are using in your diet and you are good to go!
In my ultimate low-carb keto sweet iced coffee, I used liquid stevia as an alternative for sugar. Even if you are not on the keto diet, stevia is definitely a better choice. Stevia is sweeter than regular cane sugar. This is why it is used in a very low amount. 2-3 drops of stevia are equivalent to a teaspoon of cane sugar. Moreover, the caloric amount is minimal which is an appealing aspect for people leading a physically fit lifestyle.
Regular non-vegan milk can be used but since its high in carbs, homemade cream or low-carb cream is recommended. I like to use heavy cream because it is low on carbs and high in fats. And additionally, it tastes good with coffee. Their combination is just amazing. As I said, the recipe is simple yet full of taste and freshness.
For the recipe, I brewed and chilled coffee beforehand then added stevia drops to it. I will urge you to make coffee extra strong because we are using heavy cream (it can dilute the distinct richness of the coffee) but again it’s totally up to your desire. Pour coffee and cream to the blender and blend them well. Serve immediately afterward. You can also use some ice cubes if you want.
Brew coffee and add 2-3 drops of stevia.

Voila! Enjoy your keto sweet iced coffee.
