In this post you will see the Summer keto essentials, the must have and the best products to live low-carb and keto. In the Summer I love to keep my nutrition simple and drink fresh drinks.
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 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!
Italian Keto Spritz
In this post, I will tell you exactly How I Make My Italian Keto Spritz. This is pure happiness in a glass.
Tuna Cucumber Sandwiches
Another way to use a fresh cucumber in the Summer!
This recipe is fast and easy to prepare.
Cucumber and tuna together makes every bite a fresh bite!
I like to create your own icicle with cola zero or fruity, using coconut milk, berries, and optional sweetener and aroma.
Hosting a Barbecue
What’s better than a bbq on a warm day? Read here how I organize bbq – the keto way.
