8 Keto Coffee Alternatives to Boost Fat Burning!
Updated: May 27, 2020
A few weeks ago, I shared the three times you might want to reconsider your daily Keto Coffee as well as adjustments you can make to fit your goals. But perhaps Keto Coffee DOES fit your goals, but you just aren't a fan. What can you do??
Today, I'm sharing 8 Keto Coffee alternatives that you can still incorporate during your fasting period and achieve your wellness DREAMS. These all fit the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle guidelines and can be used as a direct swap with the normal Keto Coffee.
Pssst - for the deets on why you can have Keto Coffee during your fasted period, head over HERE.
Coffee + 1 Tbsp. Grass-fed Half and Half
When I'm at a coffee shop while traveling and I haven't properly prepped Keto Coffee ingredients, this is usually my go-to. If you're using this at your house and you have control over the half and half you use, make sure to opt for grass-fed. Otherwise, if it's the occasional trip to a coffee shop and you're using what's available (i.e. likely not grass-fed), that's fine as well. It's not possible to control EVERY situation but you can at least make the best choice available to you!
Organic Tea + Grass-fed Butter + Coconut Oil
If you're a fan of tea and you LOVE the froth of Keto Coffee, but not the COFFEE itself, this is a great option! Simply take 10-12 oz. of your favorite brewed tea and blend in up to 1 Tbsp. grass-fed butter and 1 Tbsp. unrefined coconut oil. If you find that you like a little less fat, that's completely fine! Tailor this to your needs and what you prefer. Just make sure to blend this all rather than stirring it in. Stirring the fats in will leave your tea oily and not very appetizing. Blending helps to emulsify the fats and create the much loved froth!
Iced Keto Coffee
Iced coffee is how I first started to LOVE coffee. I received my undergrad in Arizona (where it gets freaking HOT) and up until this point, I didn't really like coffee. But there's something so refreshing about iced coffee that I started to implement it into my daily routine to help cool me down while walking to class. You can check out the video above for my spin on the traditional iced coffee!
Unsweetened Plain Organic Tea
You don't need to add the fats to make this drink fasting approved! Black, green, herbal... whichever you prefer! Just make sure to not add any sweetener as this will cause an insulin response and break your fast.
Coffee + 1 Tbsp. Grass-fed Heavy Whipping Cream
Remember, carbohydrates and protein can produce an insulin response, so we want to ensure that we keep these to under 1g each. Grass-fed heavy whipping cream is a great option to use if you're looking for something fast and easy but you want your coffee to be a little more rich than half and half. Just keep it to 1 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream. Any more than this and we start to enter the 1g+ amount for protein and carbs.
Same goes with black coffee as with tea! Just make sure you're using a high quality, mold-free coffee. I personally use organic Purity Coffee to ensure I'm not taking in any mold. You can get 10% off ALL of your orders with Purity (including the coffee subscription!) using the code "autumn" at checkout! Head over HERE for some mold-free coffee goodness!
Keto Matcha Latte
For my matcha latte lovers! This simple Keto Matcha Latte recipe will receive the same perks as Keto Coffee, but with the matcha spin! Check out the video above for the recipe.
