Is Coffee Okay On A Keto Diet?
I'm often asked if coffee is allowed on the keto diet. Often, because when a client or member logs a food they notice some carbs.
In our experience, drinking coffee is a helpful part of the keto diet.
A Satisfying Keto Coffee Creamer
It's easier than you think to mix up a keto coffee creamer that's delicious and satisfying. It just takes a few minutes each week… maybe even less time than going to the store to read all the labels on all the creamer options!
This recipe was inspired by a store-bought flavor I used to love called Cafe Latte. It's lightly sweetened and rounds out my morning Americano perfectly.
What is your favorite kind of coffee? Comment and let me know. We transitioned to espresso after falling in love with it while traveling. I've linked below to the Espresso machine we use and love and our favorite espresso and coffee beans.
We do choose organic coffee because coffee is a crop that is heavily sprayed with chemicals. For our health, we try and buy organic when possible and we find it cost effective to buy the beans linked above in the 5lb bag using Amazon's subscribe and save.
Why Bocha Sweet?
Our sugar substitute of choice is Bocha Sweet and there's good reason for this!
Bocha Sweet is extracted from the Kabocha pumpkin which has been a staple in the Japanese diet for centuries. Consuming Bocha Sweet on a daily basis helps to support longevity and supports healthy blood sugar levels.
Even better? It tastes almost exactly like real sugar. There's no thin flavor or metallic aftertaste. I think most of us are looking for something that tastes amazing because only a full, satisfying taste is going to work over the long-term.
So, if we are going to go to all the work to make these keto parfaits so we can please our tastebuds AND stick to our keto diet. Well, we want the result to taste GOOD not… just ‘meh' and unsatisfying. For this reason plus the health benefits, we reach for Bocha Sweet every time.
