To all those who are wondering what is “Keto”:

Keto diet is basically low-carb and high-fat diet. Carbohydrate intake is replaced with Fat intake which results in ketosis (metabolic state). This diet is extremely beneficial and recommended to people trying to lose weight or having problem in regulating blood sugar and insulin levels.

So, when it comes to keto drinks, is there anything available apart from water?

Yes, there is!

1.       Palin coffee: What’s better than coffee when you need morning boost? But is it a keto drink? Well, yes if you drink it without sugar! Also, caffeine has been scientifically proven to support fat burning, curb hunger pangs and aid in losing weight. Drinking it black is completely calorie free but you can add heavy cream on top to increase fat content.

2.       Tea: Another popular energy booster in morning-“Tea” is also a keto drink if you minus the sugar while brewing it! In fact, green and black tea are said to have anti- aging and anti-oxidant properties (Doesn’t matter whether consumed hot or iced). Add heavy cream on top to increase fat content.

3.       Non-dairy milks: A lot of options like Almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, soy milk or hemp milk are available in market if you want to follow a strict keto diet (a bit expensive though).
