Cool Low Carb Drinks for Hot Days

Beat the heat and get your chill on with blended low carb drinks.

Blended coffee drinks and ice-cold milkshakes are the perfect warm weather treat, but these sweet drinks are usually loaded with more than a days’ worth of carbohydrates and sugar.

Cool Low Carb Drink Recipes

These tasty and chilly treats are infused with flavor thanks to using ice cubes made from shakes or coffee, instead of using ice water, which waters down the drink as the ice melts.

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Icy Treat

Some chocolate brownie ice cream shakes can have up to 111 grams of carbs and 87 grams of sugar in one serving. This Chocolate Fudge Brownie Icy Treat recipe comes in at a little over 4 grams of Net Carbs.

Keto Dirty Chai Latte

A typical iced latte can range from 13 grams of carbs (including 11 grams of sugar) on the low end to 38 grams of carbs (including 35 grams of sugar on the higher end). This Keto Dirty Chai Latte, featuring Atkins Chai Tea Latte Iced Protein Shake, is just 1.5 grams of Net Carbs, for a frosty and low-sugar boost of caffeine and protein.

Keto Iced Protein Coffee

Iced coffee can be a lower carb and sugar option, depending on what you order, but when you include flavored syrup, sweet cream or whipped cream, it all starts to add up. This Keto Iced Protein Coffee recipe has just 2 grams of Net Carbs, plus vanilla flavor with a hint of macadamia nut.

It happens: You’re out and about and you need a convenient caffeine fix that is low in carbs and sugar. Follow these tips for ordering low carb and keto coffee drinks:

1) Order a smaller size.

2) Go for lower carb milk, such as almond or coconut.
