How To Make Iced Coffee

 


Coffee is the ultimate keto companion. Not only does it boost energy levels, but it promotes ketosis as well. You can even turn your hot morning cup into a cold refreshing beverage with one simple ingredient: ice.


With this keto iced coffee recipe, we’ll show you how to have keto iced coffee without leaving the house. You’ll also learn simple tricks you can use to make it tastier, healthier, and cheaper than anything you can get at Starbucks or Dunkin’.



Keeping Your Iced Coffee Keto

There are two ways to have your favorite coffee drink on keto: make it yourself or buy it from your local coffee shop (with the help of our drink ordering guide).

To cut costs and carbs, your best option is the DIY approach. With just four keto ingredients, you can make most of your favorite coffee refreshments, from a simple iced coffee to a keto frap, in minutes.


What Can I Use Instead of Stevia or Cream for my Keto Coffee?

 

If you are looking for a sweetener to use other than stevia, I recommend using a liquid keto-friendly sweetener or a powdered low carb sweetener from our sweetener guide. These will mix best with your iced coffee.

 

Once you’ve chosen your preferred sweetener, use our keto sweetener substitution chart to find the right replacement ratio for stevia.

 

When it comes to coffee creamers, heavy cream is ideal for keto and mixing with iced coffee. That being said, If you are looking to use something that’s flavored or dairy-free, make sure to double-check labels for added sugars.

Yields 1 serving of Iced Keto Coffee


THE PREPARATION:

1 cup coffee

ice cubes, to preference

3 tablespoons heavy cream

5 drops liquid stevia

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional

 

THE EXECUTION:

 

1. Brew the coffee to your preferences and how you normally make it. Allow the coffee to cool down to at least room temperature.

 


2. If you want it quicker, you can add ice cubes but if the coffee was hot, it will dilute the coffee. You can alternatively chill the coffee in the fridge or freezer and not use ice cubes.

 


3. Add heavy cream, liquid stevia, and (optionally) vanilla extract.

 


4. Mix together and enjoy!
