Iced drinks at Starbucks

When it’s warm outside I always consume my coffee cold. I usually start when the temperature is above 10 degrees.
I love walking with a venti iced coffee, burning calories and knowing that my coffee is keto approved.

Usually, at Starbucks I order Nitro, Cold brew or an Americano cold with extra ice cubes. If I feel I also add 2 pumps of sugar free aroma and/or heavy cream.

recently, I discovered the cold brew hibiscus tea, unsweetened of course. Guys, it’s the best!

For more ideas regarding Starbucks, read my article here.

Cold drinks

  • Cold beverages are saving my mood on warm days. In the Summer, you will see me sip mostly these soft drinks:
  • Fanta Zero
  • Aspire drinks (green tea enriched with vitamins), findable at Holland and Barrett
  • Sourcy Vitamin Water, findable in every supermarket

I like to add variety to my life, so I always have different drinks. Read here for my favorite sugar-free drinks in the Netherlands.

The keto watermelon trick

As you certainly know, watermelon is not really keto-friendly. For 100 grams it contains 7,6 of carbs. Yes, for a day that you keep low your carbs, you still can have some.

If you fancy watermelon and you don’t want to have a real one, try the cucumber trick. Add some Erythritol to some cucumber slices. The taste is similar to watermelon! Worked for me!
