Following the Keto Diet, but Want to Order Dunkin'? Check Out Low-Carb Drink Ideas
Finding flavorful drinks that aren't packed with carbs and sugar might be hard on the high-fat, low-carb keto diet. For instance, at Dunkin', a medium Butter Pecan Swirl iced coffee, taken black, has 38 total carbs (the carb count for a large is up to 50!), and even a small Butter Pecan Swirl hot coffee has 25 carbs. The key at Dunkin', though, is staying away from the flavor swirl add-ons and bringing, or asking for, your own sugar replacement. The flavor shots are all, in fact, unsweetened and sugar-free.
Ordering low-carb drink alternatives of your own isn't as difficult as you'd think. Here are some ideas straight from Instagram users that feature flavor shots, cream (because cream is a higher-in-fat, keto-acceptable dairy product), and sugar replacements like stevia. Plus, find keto-friendly drink creations from Starbucks here because, yes, you can be a fan of both franchises.
Note: Again, make sure you're ordering the flavor shots, not adding the syrups (swirls) to your coffee or tea!
